Tucows Offering Great Domain Names for Sale on NameJet


I recently noticed that Tucows has listed a number of high quality descriptive domain names for sale on NameJet. Some of these domain names have reserve prices and others are no reserve. To participate in the auctions, you’ll need to back order them any time from now until the deadline (varies depending on the name).

Some of my favorite Tucows-owned domain names that are coming up for sale include:

  • CheapServers.com
  • eFlicks.com
  • COO.com
  • TheHotel.com
  • Veggies.com
  • Playwright.com
  • BeautyQueen.com
  • ItalianFashion.com
  • LOO.com
  • YOM.com
  • Raccoons.com
  • Wages.com
  • Vultures.com
  • Siesta.com
  • RockClimbers.com
  • WaterSkiers.com
  • WindSurfers.com
  • PrizeFight.com
  • Parakeets.com
  • Hygienist.com

I am looking forward to participating in some of these auctions and think they’ll probably generate well into the 6 figures for Tucows.

    If Tucows is letting such great domains go, perhaps there is a problem with domains after all?

    Domains are not that great anymore…

      I am always selling domain names, and I am still bullish. Cash flow is king.

      If they have reserves, they aren’t “letting them go”. Who knows what they are asking until the reserve is met.

    @dnf – Tucows owns thousands of domains, they can’t possibly make the most out of each one business-wise. I’m sure they’re not giving them away and are looking for robust prices. Nothing wrong with selling off some assets to generate cash, businesses do it all the time.

    In addition to what was said above, many generic names don’t earn much in terms of PPC. Instead of waiting for a buyer to make a sale, they are putting some on the market to induce a sale.

    Is there a direct link where we can see all of Tucows’s domains for sale on NameJet?

    February 8th, 2013 at 3:51 pm


    6 figures….it is likely they set a reserve of 6 figs on one name alone. To be successful they will have to move more than 1 name 🙂

    @ Richard, here is link where you can see the many ultra premium domains Tucows has up for auction at the moment on NameJet:


    @ Josh, none of the reserves are 6 figures, and some of the domains that are up for auction have no reserves at all.

    February 8th, 2013 at 8:02 pm


    Hi Bill, can you get specific…please 🙂

    February 8th, 2013 at 9:21 pm


    I like Playwright dot com. That is a solid name.

    February 8th, 2013 at 10:20 pm



    The only constant is change. Domain related businesses are undergoing a major change. We all have to keep our ears to the grind, and adapt accordingly.

    Many exciting things will unfold short and mid-terms.

    Solid names will always be great assets, but there’s domain 3.0 going on. It comes in smart ways, and many are leveraging the opportunity as we write.

    There are some solid names on that list. Thanks for sharing Elliot.

    Can anyone explain how did Tucows get to own all these names? What did they pay?

    February 11th, 2013 at 7:57 pm


    Tucows “got” the names when the former owners didn’t renew. It’s how they do it.

    February 13th, 2013 at 10:18 pm


    let me clarify that . . . In most cases, Tucows “got” the names. …

    February 13th, 2013 at 10:19 pm


      So what your saying they got first dibs on a dropping name before anyone else could? Do you consider that fair? Does ICANN allow this? In other words, it would be like insider trading. They have first hand knowledge of dropping names and scoop them for themselves to make a big profit.

    @ Mark and Adam,

    To set the record straight, the majority of the domain names in this auction were acquired when Tucows bought NetIdentity (and its domain portfolio) in 2006.
