It’s not a secret that I like one word .com domain names. I am almost always on the hunt for a good one word .com domain name, although they are often difficult to buy.
Although I am still in a bearish mood right now, I am still buying domain names. I regularly participate in domain name auctions and I send inquiries and offers daily. The majority of the acquisitions I am making right now are two and three word .com domain names (I only invest in .com domain names), and they are mostly in the 3 figure range.
My most recent auction win, at the time of writing this, is a four word .com domain name that I purchased via GoDaddy Auctions. I bought TheRestIsHistory.com for a little under $150 after the renewal fee was added to the auction price. I think the phrase, “the rest is history,” is well known in the US, and I think the domain name would make a fun brand name for a business.
The downside to this name, beyond the fact that it is four words, is that it will be the type of name that sits in my portfolio until the right buyer comes around. Timing is everything with the domain name business, so that buyer could come next week or in ten years. You never know. It’s unlikely I could or would spend time doing outbound marketing to try and find a buyer for it.
I don’t think this is a super valuable domain name, but it’s the kind of domain name I like to buy even when I am in a bearish mood. Once the domain name has been provisioned to my GoDaddy account, I think it will be one of a handful of domain names of that length in my portfolio.
You are welcome to share your thoughts about the name or share some of the long domain names you have purchased recently.
