3. BigSale.com for $50,000

8. HealthSpark.com for $20,000

  • No site resolves. It’s owned by Cambria Health Solutions, so I’m guessing a new site or new business is on the way.

    Aaron I reckon the UK furniture company made an excellent buy at $16,800 for heals.com.

    Re JobBoerse.com – you will notice from your screenshot that this domain is forwarded (hence no Alexa rank) to the IDN domain with the o-umlaut spelling JobBörse.com, which has a global Alexa rank of 102,418 and its Alexa rank in German is 4,856.

    Damn fizz, you’re watching me like a hawk! 🙂 Sloppy, sloppy work on my part…….

    Thanks for the JobBoerse comments — I’ve made the correction above.

      I like looking back to see how the domains are being used.

      If you’re looking a year back to understand today’s pricing, you’re way behind the curve…. 🙂
