Blonde.com Topped by Sale of Deals.de

Blonde.com sold a week a week ago for $99,000 and Track.com, another one-word domain name sold for $92,000, only to be outdone by the sale of Deals.de in a private sale that brought the seller €65,640 Euros.  At today’s exchange rate that amounts to $103,625 U.S. dollars.  These three domain name sales amounted to the highest sales prices we were able to track down for sales during the third week of June. 

Another .de (German) domain name, Nepal.de, sold for €38,000 Euros, or approximately $59,000 U.S. dollars.  Interesting sales of one-word domains with other extensions included Baseball.us, which sold for $25,000 on Sedo, Income.ca (a Canadian domain name), which sold for $26.242 at MyID.ca. 

Other at Moniker.com we saw Closings.com sell for $25,000.  But the real winners at Moniket was the sale of Track.com mentioned heretofore for $92,000, and our favorite, ComputerParts.com, which sold for $80,000. 

In the area of 2 and 3-letter domains we saw CV.ca sell at MyID.ca for $54,977 and NWN.com sell at Sedo.com for $22,500.  One that puzzled us until we looked up the name, was the sale of Alpari.com for $65,000 on Sedo.com.  We did did some research and found a very popular Forex Trading software program that went by the same name and heretofore did not own the dot com version.  We can only assume that they were the lucky buyer of this domain name.

.de German Domain Sells for 10,100 Euros

The German domain name fotograph.de sold on Sedo.com for 10,100 Euro’s, or approximately $15,560 U.S. Dollars. It’s pretty much a given that the buyer of this domain name will use it as a retail site, whether to market photo processing, camera’s, photographic equipment, online photo storage and galleries, etc. Thus, assuming I’m correct with that assumption, I think they picked this domain up at a very good price.

Every now and then a domain name sells for a pretty good price and you say to yourself, “Say what?” or “I don’t get it.” Such is the case with the sale of BankTunes.com for $2,550.  Okay, this domain name does have a ring to it, I give you that much, but TunesBank.com would be a much better domain name if this was purchased for a music sales and distribution website.  On the other hand, if the idea is to create on online venture where you pay for Internet storage of your digital music file (i.e. tunes), then I can see where this domain name could really catch on.
