Rick Schwartz Shares More Domain Name Purchase Prices

15

Rick Schwartz owns one of the finest domain name portfolios that is in private hands. I don’t necessarily think it is just Rick’s purchases make him stand out today, but it is also his ability to retain his portfolio over the years that has put him in such a strong position today.

A little over a year ago, Rick shared the purchase prices he paid for a handful of domain names, like Vagina.com, Queen.com, Bitch.com, Ass.com, and a few others. Over the weekend, Rick posted two tweets to share more prices that he paid to acquire some exceptional domain names:

Obviously, there are some great acquisitions in the two lists Rick shared. Not only does it show that Rick was making shrewd purchases when domain names were cheap (Dick.com for $200 and Queen.com for $2,500), but he also spent substantial sums of money at later dates for exceptional domain names (Candy.com for $108,000 and Property.com for $750,000).

  1. He lucked out with the early big sale that meant he could snap the rest of them up early, without much thought or risk.

    He definitely had his niche and he also registered childpornography.com back then which I believe he still owns today.

    I’m sure he has a reason for registering this name, made me feel sick even typing it above.

      • 1. This is an article about Rick Schwartz
        2. I didn’t write it
        3. You left a comment on the same article just like I did

        So why am I obsessed?

        I sometimes feel that I’m accidentally in a love triangle with you and Rick Schwartz. I make one comment and out you pop, from behind a bush, either rushing to his defense or on the attack.

        What gives? I’m not after your man. There, I’ve said it publicly.

    • I would never speak for Rick, but I own a few “sensitive” (non-adult) domain names that I forward to non-profit organizations.

  3. Here are some of my premium domains I got dirt cheap and there is nothing to hide…as I said many times, there should be full transparency.

    Zmmr.com $15

    Of course I want to make money….nothing to hide!! Easy peasy stress free hobby.

  4. Long before I gave domaining a serious shot I tried emailing to a bunch of premium domains. All responded with six figure price tags so I gave up. This was 1998. I took until 2007 to get serious about domains and give up the idea of owning mega premium domains at a fraction of the worth and focus on smaller sales. i still managed to make a living out of it but it wasn’t easy and took a number of years to be profitable.

    • I was a domainer starting back in 1995 and I sold some premium domains pretty cheap, like Cookies.com for $5000 in 1999 or 2000, and I was happy with that $5000 price. So I am sure there were still a lot of good deals to be had back then. I only had registered domains at that time, I did not try buying them from other people.

      • To me, domaining before 2000 was just like Bitcoin before it exploded. I strongly believe that 90% of us would definitely sell Cookies.com for $5000 back in 1999. Same with Bitcoin, no one ever imagined it would reach $20k so most of the holders sold when it reached $10, $50, hell even $100
