I noticed another domain name has been sold by Anything.com, a company that operates a portfolio of valuable domain names. Snappy.com, which had been registered to Anything.com for many years, transferred from Tucows to GoDaddy. The domain name is currently registered under Whois privacy, but it is now forwarding to a company called Snappy that operates on MeetSnappy.com. The sale was confirmed to me by a representative of the company, and I was told the sale price was $415,000.
The buyer of Snappy.com was represented by GoDaddy and its Domain Buy Service. Larry Fischer from GetYourDomain.com and DomainsForSale.com represented Anything.com on this deal.
Snappy, which started out under the Snappy Gifts branding, has undergone at least a couple of domain name changes in its six year history. In a 2016 TechCrunch article, the publication linked to its website on SnappysApp.com. That domain name now forwards to MeetSnappy.com, just like the brand match Snappy.com domain name.
According to its CrunchBase profile, Snappy has raised just shy of $10 million in funding to date in two funding rounds. According to a blog post on its website, Snappy was recently named “#1 fastest growing company in the New York Metro area in the annual Inc. 5000 Regionals: New York 2021 list.” Acquiring Snappy.com should help the company with its growth trajectory.
Anything.com has sold several high value domain names in the recent past, which I have previously documented. Blade.com was sold to Blade for $503,000, Teams.com was sold for an undisclosed amount (to Microsoft), and Home.com was sold for an undisclosed amount (to Fairway Independent Mortgage Corporation).
The sale of Snappy.com may temporarily rank in the top ten publicly reported domain name sales of the year on DNJournal. At the moment, it would just make the cut, but the $550,000 sale of Wolf.com would keep it at #10 and any additional sales I don’t know about would push it out of the top ten. This sale was also added to the Embrace.com list of public one word .com domain name sales.
