I sold a domain over the weekend and happened to take a sneak peek at all my bids and auction results from the past five years at Sedo. My first 5 years of domaining I concentrated on two things. Four L dot coms, namely CVCV and gardening names. I also added “premium” 5L every now and then. Although I bought a few, looking back I passed on way too many. I realize it’s easy to go back in time and see how cheap things were but this isn’t that far back. 2008 was actually a bubble year for 4Ls and yet these still have increased in value . Here are a few names that I don’t mind revealing my bids at the auctions and where they ended up. If I still owned these I think I could easily double my money, maybe more.
Dusu.com (August 07) I was out at $900 finished at $1050
Fuzu.com (August 07) I was out at $1000 finished at $1951 (turned for $4100 the next year)
Vofo.com (June 08) I was out at $2500 finished at $2550
Yusu.com (August 08) I was out at $800 finished at $1400 (had sold for $3200 8 months earlier)
and my favorite counter offer from a bid I made at Sedo
Phlox.com I offered $200 (I know it was a lowball) his/her response 16,777,215 EUR
If you don’t mind sharing, what are a few names you passed on that have since sold for much more.?
