Domain Flips and Flops: iBud.com, KXR.com, ThirdEstate.com, 10x on Hypnotherapy.net in a month

Oct 25 2014

Below is another look at a few recent domain flips and flops, with recent data courtesy of DN Journal and historical data from NameBio.

Flips

  • iBud.com – Sold recently for $5,099 at NameJet, vs $1,600 only two months earlier at NameJet. This one also shows up in a 2011 DN Journal sales report at $25,000, so this name is certainly making the rounds in domainer circles…..lots of money being both made and lost.
  • ThirdEstate.com – Sold recently for $4,500 at Sedo, vs $350 at GoDaddy in 2012. Whois shows this one still in transfer.
  • KXR.com – Sold recently for $14,992 at Sedo, vs $7,101 in 2007 at Sedo. Chinese buyer.
  • Hypnotherapy.net – Sold recently for $8,050 at Sedo, vs $810 at GoDaddy last month. A nearly 10x return before commission in a month…..pretty nice. The current site promotes a training center in Florida (screenshot below), and Whois shows the current owner with a omnihypnosis.ch email address, and a Switzerland address.

Flops

  • No flops to be found this week……..the lack of GoDaddy names because they’re in their quiet period really limits the supply of comps to research…..

Note: I didn’t do an exhaustive search of the ownership history of each domain. There are likely cases where there were multiple owners between the sales prices I list.
