Some of My 2016 Domain Acquisitions


I like  Shane’s idea of sharing his domain name acquisitions from the past year, and I thought I would share some of mine as well. By sharing an assortment of the domain names I bought this year, readers can get a bit of a perspective on my business.

Although this is not nearly a full list, I think it gives a good idea of what I bought and continue to buy: good to great .com domain names. These domain names were bought via several channels: private acquisitions, NameJet and GoDaddy Auctions, and Sedo marketplace purchases. I did not acquire any non .com domain names this year in the aftermarket, and I don’t recall registering any non .com domain names either.

You are welcome to share your acquisitions, and by all means, if you have well priced one word .com domain names (real words, not made up things) for sale, feel free to send them my way  for a potential deal.

    Stellar collection of domain name acquisitions!

    Tough to pick a favorite but it is between domestic and layouts for me.

    Thanks for sharing. I started domain investing a year ago and have made $25,000-30,000 in profit. I’m creating a portfolio from scratch now and few recent purchases include:

      Not a bad list. You wrote you started a year ago but some of those names like were bought years earlier…

      He most likely bought it in the aftermarket, not hand registered. Domains keep their original registration date if they are not dropped.

    Unfortunately these words will be extinct in 10yrs because generation ❄️ flake want to rewrite the dictionary with their own made up names. So you should purchase my name Delicious Dongs before it’s gone. Actually I deleted it. All yours buddy!

    It continues to be challenging to acquire short, meaningful English .COM domains.
