Last week’s NameJet Expired Domain Sales
#1
WENSDAY, 4 March 2015 THE DOMAINS

According to the news from Domain Forum of China on March 4th,Joseph Peterson details recent expired domain name sales at NameJet.

After a couple of weeks during which Chinese purchases topped the expired domain auction list at NameJet, English is back. In the driver’s seat sits an exact-match domain that defines a ubiquitous commercial category: SignPrinting.com ($4.9k). ChicagoDivorce.com ($2.8k) called shotgun – an EMD as well yet geographically specific. Although this duo was fairly expensive, both are ultimately worth more. You can’t walk 1 city block in Chicago without passing a printed sign or a divorcé(e).

Some day, SecretLover.com ($2.6k) might be to blame for a few of those divorces! And you’ll need that lawyer to hold onto your BahamasProperty.com ($2k). Somebody out there can use these very domains to spell out his life story, beginning with excessive use of HairSprays.com ($2.1k) in the 1980s.

Actually, this week’s chart is a tour de force when it comes to various kinds of “category killer” domains. From generic retail products small enough to ship or stack on a shelf … to real estate for a whole county. From omnipresent industries … to local professions. From tools like WetSaws.com ($1.7k) to tourist destinations like Lake-Tahoe.com ($1.6k). Different as they are, they all describe what they are exactly and (but for that hyphen) definitively.

SUR.net ($1.2k) means “south” in Spanish; it’s a preposition in French; a city in Oman; Big Sur is a Californian city; there is a Sur restaurant and a Sur lounge; and, of course, we have no end of acronym possibilities. MUNEE.com ($151) may apply to a code library at Mun.ee.

As popular as golf is worldwide, the interest in GolfJournal.com ($1.3k) is not surprising. Other athletic domains include PerformanceFitness.com ($1.4k), EliteAthletes.com ($370), and EuroBadminton.org ($210).

Serbest.com ($1.1k) isn’t the best “Ser”. In fact, this Turkish word meaning “free” or “liberal” is tied to the “Liberal / Free Republican Party” – the Serbest Cumhuriyet Fırkası.

Agras.com ($1.1k) is a surname that has lent itself to a few websites and corporations. Although Parkvale.com ($801) suggests a town name, it’s more likely an upgrade for some business – Parkvale Capital over at Park-vale.com, for instance.

Sitting.net ($411) slipped by almost unnoticed. Perhaps people sitting in front of their computers all day were bored by more sitting; and they may have failed to realize how much money flows into baby sitting, house sitting, and pet sitting. Speaking of pets, I quite liked Petable.com ($386).

If fellow cynics want a neat summation of cultural priorities, here you go: CompleteWoman.com ($410) < SellSex.com ($680).
