OKBoomer.com Sells for $10,050

Last week, I wrote about OKBoomer.com, the .com domain name that matches the recently popularized term, “OK boomer.” OKBoomer.com was not renewed by the prior registrant, and the domain name expired. Because the domain name deleted and was caught by a Web.com registrar, OKBoomer.com went to auction at SnapNames and NameJet, two sister auction platforms operated by Web.com.

The OKBoomer.com auction ended this afternoon, and the sale price was $10,050. From what I understand, there were close to 100 bidders participating in or observing the auction. Here’s a screenshot of the auction so you can see how many bidders were participating in the auction:

At the time of publication, I am unsure who acquired this domain name. It will take at least one day for the sale to be processed and the domain name to be provisioned to the buyer’s registrar account, although purchases in the 5 figure range typically require a wire transfer for payment, and that may take additional time.

I think the OK boomer phrase is probably time sensitive, so I would imagine the buyer will pay quickly to begin using the domain name as soon as possible.

Thank you to Russ Goodwin for sharing information about this auction with me.

  2. With a name like think, you have to strike while the iron is hot. In a year, phase will have dropped from stardom and no one will visit the site based on the name alone. Better get income generation on that site before the flame dies.
