Sells for $929,000 on NameJet

NameJet started the year off on a strong note today with the sale of for $929,000.

There were 340 bids from 249 bidders in the auction. There were four bidders who bid in excess of half a million dollars for the domain name.

NameJet has had success selling two letter .com domain names. Some of the platform’s past recent domain name sales include the following:

I looked at the DNJournal year to date sales report for 2015, and I see the sales of and reported, but it does not look like the sale of has closed yet (although it may have closed but not been reported). That auction ended a little over a month ago.

NameJet currently has four other valuable two letter .com domain names in the NamesCon auction, which concludes tomorrow:

I assume the high bids on at least a couple are close to their reserve price, so perhaps NameJet will set a new platform record tomorrow. I’ll keep my eyes on the auctions as they close.
