Domain consulting and brokerage firm Domain Advisors scored a nice exclusive brokerage listing today, Yoga.com, which was announced in a press release. The company didn’t announce the asking price in the release. I would assume it’s a six figure price tag though.
I don’t know how popular yoga is where you live, but here in New York, it seems that there is at least one yoga studio on every street offering a full schedule of daily classes. People also spend a considerable amount of money on yoga clothing, mats, and other related gear. I think the name has a lot going for it.
It appears that Yoga.com is somewhat developed, although the 2005 copyright at the bottom of the site may be indicative of the last time it was updated. It does appear on the first page of Google for “yoga” for me though.
The press release is below
On the heels of World Yoga Day, DomainAdvisors, a leading broker of ultra premium domain names, announced that it has been engaged to privately broker the sale of the extremely valuable online property Yoga.com. Highly marketable and easy to remember, Yoga.com provides an unprecedented branding and investment opportunity to help capitalize on the growth of the in this multi-billion dollar yoga sector of the health and fitness industry.
The latest “Yoga in America” study, just released by Yoga Journal (yogajournal.com), revealed that Americans spend $5.7 billion a year on yoga classes and products, including equipment, clothing, vacations, and media. This figure represents an increase of 87 percent compared to the previous study in 2004. It’s no surprise Inc. Magazine recently hailed Yoga as one of the best industries to launch a new business. Owning the Yoga.com web address offers the opportunity to dominate this explosive industry.
“Yoga is a word that is universally understood, making Yoga.com one of the world’s most brandable and valuable domain names,” noted Jeffrey M. Gabriel, President of Domain Advisors. “Yoga.com provides an opportunity to own and control a central online gateway to the world of yoga and everything it embodies. It’s very rare when a domain name of this caliber, offering such a significant marketing and revenue opportunity, becomes available. DomainAdvisors is honored to be representing the owners of Yoga.com.”
