Recently Acquired Domain Names


We all like to share some of the domain names that we recently bought, and I like to do the same on occasion. Listed below are some of my recently acquired domain names. Most of these domain names were bought in private from the former registrant, and a few were bought at auction. I keep acquisition (and sale) prices private.

I welcome you to share what domain names you recently bought in the secondary market. You are welcome to share other details such as where/when you bought them, but you are not obligated to do so.

Here is a selection of domain names I bought over the course of the last month or so:

    BullS as I own onlinedrone already and drone is becoming a popular hobby

    March 21st, 2013 at 12:19 pm


      gosh…I am first again!!!

    I bought off a Godaddy auction drop. No idea why the owner let it go but it was developed at the time and with Online gaming coming back to the USA, I thought it would be a great pick up.

      Gambler is a derogatory keyword (negative), most likely aligned to degenerate…

      It might be as such to you kind sir. But as one having been involved in multiple sides of the business, I would suggest it is not much different that acquiring every other domain name, then the one you need for your immediate use. A good part of the world see ‘sex’ as a (negative) term too. But each was born,

      March 21st, 2013 at 8:24 pm


    Those look stellar, @ Elliot!


    You go!

    March 21st, 2013 at 12:56 pm


    Honeybees is a nice pick up. Natural type in traffic also.


    March 21st, 2013 at 12:58 pm


    Nice purchase of Elliot…That one is pretty timely..But is the best IMHO…

    Got these for reg fee this past week: (Spanish for caps)

    Elliot, Would you blog a post where you disclose the domains you recently have sold (not the price)

    March 21st, 2013 at 1:25 pm

      Elliot Silver

      Sorry, I won’t, but I will explain why in a subsequent blog post. Hopefully you and others will understand.

      March 21st, 2013 at 1:33 pm


      Just stalk Elliot on DomainTools and you’ll figure out which ones he sells

      March 21st, 2013 at 2:26 pm

      Elliot Silver

      LOL… Only when the names are purchased without privacy 🙂

      March 21st, 2013 at 2:27 pm


      Don’t underestimate people who are consciously aware of DT and coordinate their identities appropriately.

      When I buy low quality names, I’m John.
      When I buy middle teir names, I’m Dave.
      My best stuff, well, those belong to Steve.

      My very best stuff is usually under privacy, but sometimes, it belongs to Jack.

      Domaintools is utterly useless to identify what I own, but it sure is amusing to watch people try.

    HostingMachines .com
    NetworkServices .ca

    March 21st, 2013 at 1:51 pm


    I’d love a followup on HoneyBees down the road. It’s a good name, but end users such as BeeKeepers are a tough nut to crack. Probably won’t value it the way it should. But, it does allow for flexibility for selling (domainers, other end users, etc)
    Nice group of names.

    March 21st, 2013 at 2:06 pm

      Elliot Silver

      Probably going to be a buy and hold until someone makes an offer I can’t refuse.

      March 21st, 2013 at 2:07 pm


    Do you think the PPC will be good on that?
    Low End/High End ranges.

    March 21st, 2013 at 2:15 pm

      Elliot Silver

      No idea, and I don’t really care about it to be honest. I didn’t buy it for parking purposes. 🙂

    March 21st, 2013 at 2:16 pm


      That name seems very familiar…

      March 21st, 2013 at 9:50 pm


    I like that.
    Spoken like a True Speculator.

    March 21st, 2013 at 2:18 pm

      I only make a couple hundred a month on parking, give or take.

    Michael Carter is a home run.

    I haven’t done much this year – here are two:

    HousingLoan dot ca auction
    LuxuryRealEstateOntario dot com aftermarket
    QuintanaRooRealEstate dot com aftermarket
    CozumelRealEstate dot ca

    March 21st, 2013 at 3:16 pm


    Kinda agree with BullS on the popularity (issue) of drones as I also recently acquired:

    March 21st, 2013 at 3:17 pm


      BTW – I like,

      Good Luck with them…

      March 21st, 2013 at 3:19 pm


      You see Daniel, people think I am lunatic but I can see the Future.

      I have other drone domains too and mind you, all the trend domains that I hand reg at 99cent are getting offers.

      I know what the future like because I have this Domain Crystal ball.

      March 21st, 2013 at 3:40 pm


      Most of my offers are from Hand Regs as well. Salute BullS

      March 21st, 2013 at 3:49 pm


    Today I registered:

    If kids can’t tour the WhiteHouse, someone needs to show them what is there.

    This could also be used for a political satire website.

    I will probably sell the name.

    March 21st, 2013 at 3:18 pm


      Not a very good name, why didn’t you take, it is available for hand reg if anyone wants it, much better name, and previously registered for multiple years.

      March 21st, 2013 at 3:52 pm

    Vincent Jacques

    Really terrific names there Elliot! My uncle was a bee keeper growing-up, so I love the honeybees name the best! Honey bees are extremely important to our food supply and whether or not a beekeeper can afford the name, it has big potential value.

    I picked up this past week to add to the name I already own.

    March 21st, 2013 at 3:49 pm


      The Almond Farmers in California need Honey Bees …

      March 21st, 2013 at 3:51 pm

    Brian Kleiner (good search volume)

    March 21st, 2013 at 4:01 pm


    In Your opinion, Are any of these any good?


    March 21st, 2013 at 4:24 pm


      Your VegetarianLunchIdeas dot com is probably your best searched domain out of the bunch. Next best site is probably CollegesInManhattan dot com.

      Movie Theaters in Manhattan dot com would be the better domain. MoviesNYC dot com as well. There is a big market for GEO movies, so definitely invest in them.

      “Motorcycles for Women” is the better domain. If you want to develop the girls site, then target the “women” keyword.

      Good luck.

      March 22nd, 2013 at 12:29 am


    Recently hand-regged this one

    RegCodes dot com

    I always get a kick out of ironic hand regs! 🙂

    March 21st, 2013 at 4:34 pm

    David – It would be awesome if a major convenience store company would by this domain from you. They could turn this into an amazing cell phone app that people can use when traveling on the highways ,and byways across the United States!

    March 21st, 2013 at 4:46 pm

    I bought in a Godaddy auction.

    Guess i should stick to buying .com domains….

    Hand Registered the following:

    Kim Kardashian had one on her show and have been getting moderate traffic on both.

      Elliot Silver

      I don’t particularly love the trend, but if it is something that takes off, you could make some bucks…

      March 21st, 2013 at 8:11 pm


      Elliot,I don’t like the trend either, they are sometimes called “Vampire Facials” but
      there are doctor offices around the country
      that are performing them. Imo, they are rather “fadish” but you never know what a person will go through to take a few years off their appearance.

      March 21st, 2013 at 9:27 pm


    Nice list of names.

    Elliot is very good on boot strapping his operation and done very well in sales. Now has this blog, dog website traffic,

    Give him a lot of credit.

    Will say this. If you think domain sales are tough try acquiring a pure type in traffic portfolio. Take away the top 300 domainers and most domainers do not get the value of type in traffic. People should read ricksblog

    Concluding pure domain sellers are very good what they do. They just don’t get type in traffic and the powers of it.

    Diversification for me and love my portfolio more and more.

    Some nice names above. Let the noise begin. People think domain industry will expand, I think the domain community will shrink and gtld non sense. Let the games, agendas start. Staying focused. Fuck the noise.

    March 21st, 2013 at 8:46 pm


    Hi Elliot,
    Great buys on and Just goes to show there are still gold nuggets out there.

    I’ve had interest in the following;

    Not sure about you but I’m suspicious about Hotmail, Gmail and Yahoo email addresses when people enquire, more inclined to talk/deal with a genuine business address. Then again.

    Cheers Elliot,

    March 21st, 2013 at 9:15 pm


    Have You ever done a recently acquired Hand Regs Post?
    .Com only ….

    March 21st, 2013 at 9:22 pm

    Leonard Britt is a nice acquisition. I haven’t found much of late worth acquiring. However, I did pick up a few months ago.

    I like

    I been holding on to these domain names:

    What ya’ll think.. I’d like to sell these off.

    March 21st, 2013 at 11:39 pm


    Your best acquisitions based on search value are:

    Philadelphia Taxi
    Honey Bees
    Convenience Stores

    Chief Strategist is a good domain, as well. I prefer high search domains that deliver excellent hits with relevant content. I see the domains above as good investments.

    Convenience stores and Philadelphia Taxi make good directories. Good job with the recent acquisitions.

    March 22nd, 2013 at 12:16 am


    Nice names!
    I just picked up @ godaddy auctions

    I always find it interesting reading Ellits comments and have followed this site since i saw the video on DomainSherpa. I have just bought these domains and would value any opinions – Age: 5 years Age: 3 years CPC: $2.53 5 years old Age: 11 years CPC: $4.61 – Age: 9 years Age: 5 years Age: 8 years Age: 7 years Age: 11 years


    March 22nd, 2013 at 5:51 am


    I must admit that after so many years, don´t get why people will buy or sell names that long in terms of characters… I guess I could think of PPC and all that s..t but seriously dazzles me that you guys have made so much money from selling them…

    Anyway I´m not a domainer “per se” so probably that´s why… and having received offers for some of my domains like LLL or generic never got an offer more that 100 €… I would love you to sen me to some article that will help me understand a little bit more… thanks in advance.

    March 22nd, 2013 at 7:43 am


    You stats guys will love this one:

    March 22nd, 2013 at 11:47 am


    Thanks a lot for Your opinion.
    My personal favored domain name that I hand reg’ed lately is although still haven’t come up with an idea what to do with it.
    Do You think there is much sens in registering long domain names such as: Even though they make sens aren’t they too long?

    March 22nd, 2013 at 12:22 pm

    I would appreciate any opinion on these:

    March 23rd, 2013 at 12:46 pm


    For me recently I’ve purchased a and another

    Judging from the current sales database’s believe I got then just below liquidation/wholesale type pricing, leaving enough room to profit.

    March 24th, 2013 at 5:42 am



    You might be interested in these, too:

    March 24th, 2013 at 11:19 am


    Finally, I slowed my roll, and hand registered only 3 this year, but I’m not saying.

    I hand registered TaxElitism in November of last year, and created a boss twitter site with commentary on news about tax elitism. The reason the market shrugged off Cypress, is noone cares Russian billions of laundered $$ is going to be taxed!

    March 24th, 2013 at 1:04 pm


    Those are mid to high five figure end user valuation and exact match assets that have aged well good for you Elliot.

    I’ve hand registered:
