Oct 20 2015

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

Flips sold for 1,300 USD on 2015-10-15 at NameJet, vs 110 USD on 2014-06-13 at GoDaddy. These days you can count on a few for profitable flips. 12x before commissions in 16 months. sold for 1,214 USD on 2015-10-14 at 4.CN, vs 212 USD on 2014-12-13 at NameJet. Nearly 6x before commission in under a year. sold for 1,400 USD on 2015-10-09 at NameJet, vs 500 USD on 2011-06-20 at Sedo. sold for 956 USD on 2015-10-15 at Flippa, vs 100 USD on 2013-10-19 at GoDaddy. sold for 1,680 USD on 2015-10-12 at NameJet, vs 1,106 USD on 2015-03-08 at NameJet. Not huge bucks, but if you picked up a bunch of earlier this year, you’d likely be sitting on a decent profit. sold for 5,627 USD on 2015-10-08 at Sedo, vs 2,493 USD on 2009-12-09 at Sedo. Appears to translate from German as ‘riding breeches’, and a site (screenshot below) has been live for a couple years.


Flops sold for 21,300 USD on 2015-10-15 at NameJet, vs 20,400 USD on 2015-08-23 at NameJet. Looks slightly profitable until you factor in those pesky commissions. sold for 5,500 USD on 2015-10-13 at Sedo, vs 7,003 USD on 2015-01-16 at NameJet. If I remember correctly, the seller had been peddling this domain hard ever since he purchased it earlier this year, and his counter to offers was along the lines of “well, that’s less than I paid”. Unfortunately for him, the price he paid doesn’t equate to what others think the domain is worth. sold for 7,601 USD on 2015-10-15 at NameJet, vs 10,000 USD on 2009-03-24 at Moniker. sold for 205 USD on 2015-10-14 at NameJet, vs 1,110 USD on 2012-10-14 at NameJet. Be sure to check the spelling before you buy…. sold for 1,101 USD on 2015-10-14 at Flippa, vs 1,800 USD on 2015-09-28 at NameJet. Quick flip gone awry, even though the market is on fire.

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.

  1. Pavan Arora sale didn’t go through, the seller refused to commit to the auction sale and got suspended for non transfer.
