SnapNames.com came up the big winner last week with the sale of TopModel.com for $117,500. The owners of OrientalFurniture.com purchased the domain name RoomDividers.com for $40,000 in a private sale. GoNYC.com sold for $40,000 on Afternic.com, while DNForum scored the big sale of Mozilla.com for $40,000.
When I see a domain name like RoomDividers.com go for $40,000 it makes me wonder what my domain name, CustomFitBlinds.com, would be worth. I’d appreciate hearing your feedback with any thoughts you might have on the value of this domain name. Likewise, if you’re in the blinds business and have an interest in buying it, I’ll entertain serious offers.
In the world of 2-letter/number domain names Sedo.com scored a hit with the sale of 7H.com for $20,500, while Y3.com sold for $19,279 at SnapNames.com. One of the big surprises of the week to me was the sale of 18.no for $17,150 on Sedo.com.
Finally, one domain name gets a lot of type-in search engine traffic, namely FreeLove.com, went for $17,650 on SnapNames.com. The domain name brings up images of the hippy years when the term “free love” was used extensively and became a household word. These day “free love” is a highly searched term on Google, MSN and Yahoo.com, so its no surprise that the dot com domain name version would go for such a high value. In fact, if I’m surprised at all it would be over the fact that I think the domain name could have sold for a higher value than it did.
