SelfieSticks.com Sells for $29,100

The SelfieSticks.com domain name sold in auction this afternoon for $29,100 at NameJet. There were three bidders who bid over $19,000 in this auction, and there were 78 bidders who had backordered this domain name.

Based on the current expiration date, it looks like the SelfieSticks.com domain name was a privately held domain name that was sent to auction  rather than the usual expired domain name auction that is most regularly seen at NameJet.

The domain name has a creation date of December 10, 2013, so that would be a pretty solid flip on a hand registered domain name (assuming that is the case). There aren’t too many hand registered domain names that sell for 5 figures like this within a couple of years of their creation, so kudos to the seller.

Selfie sticks have become much popular in the last year or two. A selfie stick is a tool that holds a camera a short distance from the person taking the photo, allowing that person to take a better selfie (self portrait) with a bit wider photo range. Gizmodo published an article about the history of the selfie stick, so you can learn more about it there. Apparently, there were many selfie sticks at CES this year, as reported by TechCrunch.

Congratulations to the buyer for having the foresight to register SelfieSticks.com. It proves that people can still flip hand registered domain names for big money.
