Sedo domain broker Ryan Colby just listed a number of exclusive domain names for sale, and the portfolio is pretty stunning. This is not the full list of names, but listed below are quite a few of the names. I believe most (if not all) are each worth 6 figures or more, and I don’t recall seeing any of these domain names listed for sale recently.
The prices for these domain names were not disclosed, but if you are interested in any of them, please contact Ryan Colby at Sedo (ryan “dot” colby at sedo.com). You can also ask to view the full list of domain names for sale by this seller. I do not know the owner of the domain names and I was not compensated for writing an article. Additionally, the Sedo link is a tracking link not an affiliate link.
That list is something else. Laptops and Profit and paint are huge domains besides the geo domains.
It’d be nice to own just one of these!!
Amazing portfolio. There are several potential seven figure domains there.
Congrats to Ryan for having succeed to convince Phil to sell some of his premium domains.
Now I think they should be priced for end-users, so we can watch but don’t touch!
Great list for sure. It will be very interesting to see the sales prices on these. Good luck to Ryan and to Sedo.
This is one scary portfolio…
WOW, what a fantastic list, this should be very interesting to see what they sell for
Thats the guy who owns AutoInsurance.com & UnitedStates.com
If I win the lotto I’l get some of them LOL
wow, nice domains. I wander why someone with such a nice portfolio decides to sell all at once.
Just because they’re all listed, doesn’t mean the owner wants to sell them all. Perhaps one or two big sales is all that’s wanted/needed and then the names will be taken down from the market. IMO, it would be easier to list a whole bunch and sell a couple than pick just a couple to sell.
What an amazing collection!
I know alot about Phil. We were hunting the same names in the summer of 1997. He was one of the few that knew about the seven day cache on dropping names. While I was sending in registrations by hand every hour, Phil was smart enough to hire collage students for $6 an hour to do registions at a greater volume. When the names starting appearing in our email as confirmation of ownership, it was like winning at the slot machine.
I called Phil summer of 97 to speak with him and told him he had just made himself a millionaire. Of course he didn’t believe it at the time. I remember most of the premiums he owns which include names like democrat.com and republican.com. Our quest was the same at the time and your article brings back a lot of memories when this industry was at its infancy. I am glad he is finally selling his names since he does not engage in our industry and these names need the development they deserve.
It would be interesting to see a rundown of the types of offers he turned down over the years for some of those.
Which domain name is the best from that list?
I think italy.com and paint.com are the best.
What do you guys think?
Not Italy. It is spelled Italia in Italy. Paint,
Directions or Dad are the timeless classics of generics.
I like TVs.com best and think it will garner the highest price; perhaps from TV.com.
One of those I like most out of the bunch is surely Opportunities.com
A great opportunity for the largest Indian Bike Manufacturer TVS Motor company to grab this gem. currently they use http://www.tvsmotor.in. Hope sedo rep will take note of this 🙂
Holidays.com is the equivalent of “Vacations.com” in many wealthy, English speaking parts of the world. It’s probably underrated on a list like that.
Dad is a ridiculous brandable- iirc, Egg and Boy both sold at the depths of the market bottom in (09, was it?) for pretty fair prices.
ridiculous brandable = ridiculous as a brandable.
I love all these domains, especially the GEOs, but I think that Holidays.com has the most upside as a brand.
I like Nuts.com (Great brandable AND product keyword-marketing appeal) and Government.com has all kinds of development angles.
In terms of Italy vs. Italia the global searches are a wash between them, but in the US (where ad spending dominates) Italy is 16+X bigger than Italia.
Also Fiji.com is not only a great Geo, it is also a CVCV.com so that has to add to it’s value as well 😉
I think we have seen the
for .com domains
People are trying to dump these domain names before the money shifts more over to .CO
here is additional proof:
SnapNames Premium Keyword Domain Auction – the second auction in a row without a bid
After SnapNames April Showcase auction ended last week without bids,yesterday another SnapNames auction ended without a bid on any domain name.
Even though SnapNames premium keyword domain auction featured some quality domain names,it seems that no one was interested to buy any domain name .
However,there were many mediocre domains listed in this auction and the prices for most domain names were too high.
Many of the domain names listed had indeed ridiculous reserves . ApplyJobs.com had a $22,000 reserve price.
It seems that all domain names listed in this auction are owned by Nokta Internet Technologies .
That’s the dumbest thing I’ve heard today.
So dumb its stupid funny.
Well, why else has snapnames done 2 premium name auctions and not a single bid in 2 events in a row.
Plus we are seeing a deluge of premiums because obviously they all feel it’s the top,
Especially now that .Co is doing well.
Because the names were shitty or overpriced.
Since you’re such a smart guy, here’s a “cheap” 3 letter .co domain name. Put your money where your mouth is or stop posting: http://www.cax.com/fmd.co
No they were not shitty.
In fact, I think they were slightly better than this list.
I am sure you do.
Nice domains…but asking way toooooo much $,$$$,$$$
I made mid 6 figure offers on couple of domains in that list…and they want 7 figures+
I was told all offers would need to start at $300,000
I’m trying to get in touch with Ryan Colby to list one of my domains. Do you have his e-mail address?
Ryan no longer works with Sedo. You can email firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to work with sedo.
