LOS ANGELES, CA (November 21, 2012) – FindYourDomain.com has partnered with NameJet.com, the leading domain marketplace, to provide an exclusive list of 200+ domain names that will be sold in an online auction event. The auctions will take place on NameJet.com from November 25, 2012 through January 29, 2013. Many of the domain names are listed with no reserve, meaning that the high bidder of the auction will secure ownership of the domain name after successful payment.
FindYourDomain.com, a leading broker of high-value domain names, has sold hundreds of domain names on the NameJet marketplace. In 2011 FindYourDomain.com sold many domains to start-up companies like Copy.com for $101,300, which is now a developed file sharing website. Another example is Badger.com, which sold for $27,400, and is now an accredited ICANN registrar. More recently, FindYourDomain.com brokered the sale of GiftBasket.com for $350,000 to the owner of WineGiftBaskets.com, who found significant value in investing in a shorter, more memorable asset.
Domain names that were sold in the past were not only used for start up purposes, but for resale as well. For example, ElectricCompany.com sold for $8,321 in a NameJet auction in the fall of 2011 and the domain name was later re-sold in September 2012 for $85,000. This sale illustrates the investment opportunity that exists in buying domain names and how domain names purchased at auction are often under-sold.
“Now is the best time to invest in a premium domain name given the current Buyer’s market” said FindYourDomain.com Marketing Manager, Tom Salbego. “These auctions offer excellent buying opportunities for both companies and individual investors. More companies are starting to realize that a memorable domain is crucial to growing a business. Also, investors are identifying investment opportunities that exist in buying and selling domain names.”
