Top Public Uniregistry Market Domain Sales YTD

44

Earlier this morning, I published a press release from Uniregistry with details about its year to date sales results. The company reported that it sold 3,617 domain names totaling more than $29,000,000. I asked Uniregistry VP of Sales Jeff Gabriel if he could share any more details about YTD sales at Uniregistry Market, and he sent me a list of over 2,700 sales worth more than $17.2 million. Jeff mentioned that many of the sales were removed, so the list I received is abridged.

Several of these sales were previously reported. For instance, I wrote about the the sales of Squeeze.com and Coya.com. I presume there are other domain name sales that have been written about by me or by others. I also presume this list of sales will be reported to DNJournal and NameBio for archiving. Once Ron Jackson has this data, there will be some major changes at the top of the DNJournal Year to Date sales report.

For the sake of convenience I am sharing all of the sales I received that are worth $20,000 or more. There are 156 domain name sales → Read More


Coya Buys Coya.com Before $10 Million Funding Round

10

CrunchBase reported that an insurance startup called Coya received $10 million in seed funding at the end of August. A quick check showed that the company is operating its business on the Coya.com domain name, which had previously been owned by Frank Schilling's Name Administration. Jamie Zoch reported the sale of Coya.com at the end of July, although the price was not published.

I reached out to one of the founders of Coya via email to ask what the company paid to buy the domain name and what url the company was using prior to the acquisition. Unfortunately, I did not hear back from him.

I also reached out to Jeff Gabriel, Vice President of Sales at Uniregistry. Jeff let me know that the domain name was brokered by Ryan May of Uniregistry, and the sale price for the Coya.com domain name was a very reasonable (more…) → Read More


LJA.com Sells via Uniregistry

1

The LJA.com domain name has sold, according to my morning DomainTools email update. Prior to the sale, the domain name was owned by Future Media Architects (FMA). The domain name is now registered to a Texas company called LJA Engineering & Surveying, Inc.

After seeing the Whois change, I reached out to Jeff Gabriel from Uniregistry, as I know the company has represented FMA on the sale of some of its domain names (such as Kiwi.com). Jeff confirmed that Uniregistry brokered the deal, but he could not share the purchase price for the domain name. "We can confirm a sale occurred, however our client wished it remain confidential," Jeff told me via email.

My guess is that this was a (more…) → Read More


Kiwi.com Sold for $800,000

Kiwi.com Whois

A few days ago, I saw that the Kiwi.com domain name had changed hands. Kiwi.com had been owned by Future Media Architects, and the Whois changed to show the registrant as Skypicker.com S.R.O. I had not heard of this company prior to the Whois change, and I am not sure what they are planning for Kiwi.com. At the time of publication, the domain name does not yet resolve.

After seeing the domain name change hands, I reached out to Jeff Gabriel, Vice President of Sales at DomainNameSales.com (DNS) to ask if he could share any details because DNS brokers domain names on behalf of Future Media Architects. Jeff was able able to confirm that the domain name had sold and he told me the acquisition price was (more…) → Read More


DNS Brokers Using Holiday Template to Follow Up

3

I don't recall having much success selling a domain name to someone who had inquired about it months or years prior. Perhaps because of this lack of success, I haven't really pursued old leads. Perhaps it's time I change my thinking about this.

I recently received an email from a DomainNameSales.com broker in response to an older inquiry I made, and I want to share it with you because I think it is well done. (more…) → Read More


Lda Asked and DNS Shared

6

In the lead up to NamesCon, I wrote an article about a question and answer panel led by Jeff Gabriel, Vice President of Sales at DomainNameSales.com. A reader with the "Lda" moniker commented, asking Jeff to share some examples of his sales to prove his expertise:

"However, to front a panel titled '... selling YOUR domains' with no obvious public track record of named sales (inform me if this is incorrect), my trust in Jeff's 'expertise' is clearly less than yours.

I'm simply inviting him to convince me that he's worthy of the title 'expert' by releasing the names of domains he has brokered, that don't have NDAs."


If you visit DN Journal this afternoon, it looks like (more…) → Read More
