I’ve noticed that quite a bit of the higher value sales reported in DNJournal of late have been made by Sedo. Earlier this week, I wrote about Sedo getting exclusivity on a great gambling domain name, Gambling.com. It seems like the company is on quite a roll.
Today, I’ve learned that Sedo has gotten the domain names Memory.com and Wood.com under exclusive contract to sell.
I think Memory.com is a great domain name because computer memory is very easy to sell online. I don’t know what the margins are like, but I know a company like Crucial.com makes it simple for people to order memory upgrades. The physical product is small, so inventory expenses are probably light compared to other products.
I wouldn’t be surprised if a company like Micron (owners of Crucial) make an offer to buy Memory.com. Not only would an acquisition like Memory.com make its brand more intuitive, but it would also prevent a startup or competitor from making a big impact on its offering.
Ryan Colby is the broker for both of these domain names and you can be in touch with him by emailing Ryan.Colby at Sedo. Another domain name of interest may be Karate.com, which I understand has seen a price drop since the DomainFest auction where the reserve was $500k-750k.
