Four Names Being Marketed


It seems like two letter .com ( names have appreciated as much or more than any other type of domain name in the past 10+/- years. I am sure others have appreciated the same or more percentage-wise, but 2 letter .com names seem to have increased in value much more than most other types of domain names.

This week, I heard about two names that sold in private. I don’t know the prices, but I am pretty comfortable saying the sales were for low to mid 6 figures, with one of them likely being closer to mid-6 figures based on the information I was given. I’ve also seen four 2 letter .com names actively marketed for sale this month:

  • (Sedo) – $100,000 bid and $250,000 – 499,999 USD reserve
  • (Toby Clements) – $145,000 price
  • (Domain Guardians) – “Mid $XXX,XXX” price
  • (Sedo) – Price unknown

You can a look at the 2004 and 2005 DNJournal domain sales reports to see just how much they’ve gone up in value if you assume that no two letter .com name would sell for under $100,000 in today’s market. Keep in mind that there are a couple very large sales, like for $460,000 and for $125,000, and I would assume the values of those are exponentially higher in today’s market:

  • sold for $27,000
  • sold for $22,250
  • sold for $16,000
  • sold for $27,000
  • sold for $60,000

    I would advise against visiting from work as it seems to lead to a “adult” provider.

      Nice… if Sedo finds a buyer for, maybe they’ll get in touch with you to work something out.

    I don’t have stats on what percentage of publicly traded companies own domain name that matches with their stock symbol. But MO could be a nice purchase for Altria Group as it is their ticker symbol.

      It’s obviously a six-figure domain name, but I have no idea how much it’s worth retail.
