Evidently Some People Think Dot CC Domains Have Value: Godaddy Auction Results

By - November 5, 2012 - 9 Comments

Godaddy had a long list of premium keyword dot cc domains go to auction today and the results were mixed but there were some that reached a solid price. I am a dot com guy but I am also a profit guy. As long as I see value and the ability to make money with the tld I am in. I see value in CC if purchased at the right price. I have always felt there is value in the ending being very easy to type and the fact that new tlds being introduced will reduce the stigma of it being a bad ending because there will be so many bad endings. I actually purchased two names from the group myself. I’ll say what they are when they are in my account. Here are a few of the domains that I followed and their final prices. Unfortunately I didn’t follow all the .cc auctions.

plastic.cc $75
automobile.cc $116
war.cc $130
gift.cc $1,615
banks.cc $1,210
piano.cc $255
honeymoon.cc $406
stockbroker.cc $507
education.cc $1,010
teeth.cc $27

    They see the keyword and get excited. They forget to check if the cctld is valuable.

    Gnanes,

    I think you are underestimating the intelligence of people. I’m pretty sure the bidders know exactly what tld they are bidding on.

  3. RaTHead says:

    automobile.cc for $116 is ok ’cause if they bought the .com it would probably cost at least $800. a penny saved is a penny earned.

  4. Jeff says:

    I actually like plastic.cc at $75. The rest are trash.

  5. Steve says:

    I have held on to some of my .cc`s Just got a big $100 offer for culture dot cc
    Easiest extension to type, easy to say, easy to remember.
    I keep them with my idn`s. :)

    The trumpeted ‘sale’ of beauty.cc for one million dollars led me (unfortunately), and probably many others, to buy one or more of these .cc domains, and although it was a dozen years ago I still kick myself for being so easily swayed. They got a short-term registration boost but IMO damaged their image in the long-term as a result of the claimed $1M sale.

  7. Paul H says:

    The only .cc I’ve ever bought is Scooters.cc on a hand reg. Thought it was a good keyword as no other available TLD and Scooters are also sold on their engine size ‘cc’.

  8. corey says:

    Im doubting these sales, sorry but a little to hard to believe. If you go to namejet names like these are dropping all the time with no bids. Now all of a sudden people are buying them? The only .cc names that seem to be worth anything are the ll.cc, nn.cc and cc.cc combos.

  9. ShaneCultra says:

    Corey,

    You are greatly mistaken if you think these aren’t real sales. Not saying that all of a sudden dot cc domains are gold but the facts are the facts. Some keywords are fetching solid prices
