Tucows Offering Great Domain Names for Sale on NameJet

17

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.

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

    Domains are not that great anymore…

  2. @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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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 🙂

    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.

    • 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.
