I was the winning bidder on the Geographic.com expiry auction on NameJet yesterday afternoon. There were 122 bids from 84 bidders, and the purchase price was $17,710. Ordinarily, I do not share the price I paid for a domain name, but since this one was a public auction, the price will be publicly reported anyway.
I like Geographic.com because there are many uses for the domain name. There are likely hundreds of companies and websites (or more) around the world that use the descriptive “Geographic” term in their name. I can also see that there are thousands of registered domain names with “Geographic” in them, and it looks like nearly 100 “Geographic” domain names with different extensions are registered (like Geographic.Farm and Geographic.Media).
Do you think I got a good deal, paid market value, or overpaid to buy the domain name?
