Domain Flips (KEO.com, MLSM.com, KNW.net) and Flops (LDSI.com, GameAddiction.com)

Mar 13 2016

Before jumping into the domains, below is a quick picture from a trail marathon yesterday in Salida, CO. Beautiful spring day and beautiful scenery. Sore all over today, both the mind (thanks to all the microbrews last night in this cool mountain town) and the body (longest run since a 100 miler last fall – picture at this post).

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

Flips

KEO.com sold for 42,600 USD recently at NameJet, vs 25,000 USD on 2015-05-21 at NameJet. KEO.com and VEO.com sold at about the same time last year, with VEO.com going for $36,100, and many thinking KEO.com was comparatively undervalued at a $10k lower price. KEO has since caught up.

FZV.com sold for 25,726 USD recently at Sedo, vs 15,000 USD on 2015-04-04 at Flippa.

KNW.net sold for 3,850 USD recently at NameJet, vs 411 USD on 2012-02-10 at NameJet. The first of two LLL.net with sizable gains since 2012.

WKT.net sold for 3,500 USD recently at Sedo, vs 460 USD on 2012-02-20 at NameJet.

MLSM.com sold for 2,501 USD recently at Flippa, vs 305 USD on 2014-05-08 at NameJet. There is lots of talk about LLLL.com domains having a drop in price recently, but if you bought a year or more ago, you’re in great shape.

SCUT.com sold for 3,650 USD recently at GoDaddy, vs 1055 USD on 2013-03-10 at GoDaddy.

TTND.com sold for 2,350 USD recently at NameJet, vs 192 USD on 2013-08-07 at NameJet.

JLPM.com sold for 1,988 USD recently at NameJet, vs 100 USD on 2012-04-13 at GoDaddy.

Flops

ECPG.com sold for 890 USD recently at NameJet, vs 805 USD on 2016-01-09 at NameJet. This seller lots a few bucks after commissions in their two month holding time.

LDSI.com sold for 760 USD recently at NameJet, vs 2,500 USD on 2004-10-22 at Afternic.

GameAddiction.com sold for 1,410 USD recently at NameJet, vs 1,499 USD on 2013-03-09 at NameJet. A loss of a few hundred dollars after commission.

Elira.com sold for 910 USD recently at GoDaddy, vs 4,135 USD on 2014-04-09 at GoDaddy.

ZCX.org sold for 690 USD recently at NameJet, vs 4,888 USD on 2010-07-21 at Sedo.

Coupons.ws sold for 232 USD recently at Flippa, vs 2,000 USD on 2011-01-05 at Sedo. The .ws domains that everyone has been talking about lately are the short, Chinese-friendly versions. I haven’t seen many of these keyword .ws domains.

WorkSpaceInnovation.com sold for 113 USD recently at GoDaddy, vs 1,388 USD on 2014-01-26 at Afternic. Long is out of favor. Estibot shows only 14 searches a month for this phrase.

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.
