Buyers Love 3-Letter .Coms – Lov.com Tops This Week’s Sales Chart with 7 More on the Leader Board

WEDNESDAY,11 NOVEMBER 2014  DN JournalAccording to the news from Domain.cn1(1) on November 6th, domain buyers have long had a love affair with 3-letter .coms. That was shown again this week when LOV.com led our latest Sales Chart with a $91,800 payday at NameJet and seven more 3-letter .coms taking places on an expanded leader board.  I was away covering the T.R.A.F.F.I.C. East conference in Miami Beach last week, so I have a double dose of data for you this time out,  including an all extension top sales chart that doubles from its usual 20 positions to 40.

Six of those 3-letter .coms landed on the top half of the elite list including #2 (tie) RSR.com, a domain that Heritage Auctions sold for $75,000. DomainGuardians.com also claimed a share of the runner-up spot with their $75,000 sale of Coin.org. That is the biggest .org sale reported so far this year and is one of the five biggest non .com gTLD sales reported in 2014.

Rounding out the first five are a pair of sales made at Flippa.com – #4 Sponsored.com at $50,200 and #5 (tie) LowCarb.com at $45,000 – and one from Sedo – #5 (tie) Pager.com at $45,000. Those three helped the .coms pile up 30 of the 40 chart entries, including one IDN – #9 Gartenmöbel.com, sold at Sedo for $25,000.

 

The ccTLDs had their usual strong outing with seven chart entries, led by Sedo’s $30,000 sale of #8 Angel.in (Indian country code). Two others earned spots on the top half of the Big Board. Sedo sold #12 Koffer.ch (Swiss ccTLD) for $22,278 and Eytan Elbaz banked $21,500 for Pie.co (Colombian ccTLD) in a private transaction.

That left three places for the non .com gTLDs. In addition to that big Coin.org sale, #28 6.biz brought $12,637 and 38 (tie) Joy.club added $10,000, with Sedo ringing up the latter two sales. You probably heard about another big deal in this category involving Coffee.club that we detailed in our Lowdown section Tuesday. While the transaction will end up being worth $100,000 that is being paid out over 10 years. We only chart domains that have been fully paid for and transferred to the new owners but,  as the .Club Registry’s biggest transaction to date, this one is still well worth noting.

Here is how all of the sales leaders stacked up for the two weeks ending Sunday, November 2:

The ccTLDs were led by the seven five-figure sales you saw on the all extension leader board at the top of this report, with Angel.in leading the way at $30,000. The highest sales in this category that you haven’t seen yet are a pair of names tied for #8 on our latest weekly Country Code Top 20 Sales Chart. Those are Erbjudanden.se and Monteurzimmer.eu, each of which sold for $8,125 through Sedo.

Another Sedo sale, this one an IDN – Billigerflüge.de - rounded out the top ten after changing hands for $6,944. Sedo went on to pile up 13 of the 20 chart entries. Golem.eu was next, filling four spots on the leader board including #4 Megabus.de at $14,925. Chart honors also went to NetFleet.com.au for #7 XX.com.au at $10,047 and DomainPicks.com for #20 Clique.tv at $3,800.

The European Union’s .eu won the extension race wit four chart entries. Three others – Switzerland’s .ch, Germany’s .de and Sweden’s .se each had two. In a remarkably diverse week, 10 other ccTLDs had representatives on the chart.

Power.com Sold for Nearly $1.3 Million in One of the Year’s Biggest Sales

WEDNESDAY,11 NOVEMBER 2014  DN JournalAccording to the news from Domain.cn1(1) on November 6th, thanks to George Kirikos we are able to report that the domain Power.com has been sold to Power Integrations, Inc. for $1,261,000 (Power.com now redirects to the San Jose, California based company’s existing website at PowerInt.com). Power Integrations, a supplier of high-performance electronic components, had net revenues of more than $90 million in the recently completed 3rd quarter of 2014.  

Mr. Kirikos, who has uncovered many previously undisclosed high end domain sales while poring over SEC filings, did it again when he found the Power.com purchase listed in Power Integrations’s third quarter 10-Q filing with the SEC. From the nameserver change date, it looks like the deal closed in July of this year.

Coincidentally, I ran into  Scott Smith, who brokered the Power.com sale, at the 

Power image from Bigstock

T.R.A.F.F.I.C. East  conference two weeks ago in Miami Beach. At that time Scott told me he had made the sale but he couldn’t give me any details due to a non disclosure agreement. George has now filled in the blanks.

At $1.261 million, Power.com is the 6th largest sale reported so far this year and the 9th seven-figure transaction to have been made public in 2014 (we will be adding it to our YTD Top 100 chart after our next weekly domain sales report comes out Wednesday evening). Thanks again to Mr. Kirikos for sharing this information.

 

Bloomberg Gives Back His .NYC Domain Name Registrations

THURSDAY, 06 NOVEMBER 2014 the DOMAINS

According to the news from Domain.cn 1(1)on November 6th, according to Reuters, the former Mayor of new York City, Michael Bloomberg has “called off the purchase of a slew of website domain names that insult and belittle him and his work”

“The move came a day after reports that two law firms working for Bloomberg had purchased about 400 such online domains.

The domains included bloombergfail.nyc, mikethespoiler.nyc and kingmike.nyc, according to an online registry. Others were more insulting, such as mikeistoorich.nyc and michaelbloombergistooshort.nyc.

The purchase of negative website domains is a common strategy among politicians and other public figures in an effort to protect their reputations.

Bloomberg spokeswoman Meghan Womack said his lawyers had been “overly-aggressive” in trying to protect Bloomberg.

We have requested the immediate release of any domains that are not straightforward,” she said.

The release meant the domains would be publicly available”

A slew of media reports came out after Domainnamewire.com, reported that the former Mayor registered hundreds of .NYC domain names some of which were very defensive in nature.

The DomainNameWire.com story was picked up by major media outlets and tonight its seems the former Mayor is using the grace period delete which applies to new gTLD’s as well as .com which in the domain industry circle known as domain tasting.

Good to know that major media outlets do in fact read and acknowledge domain blogs and effects even the former Mayor of New York

Hats off to Andrew.

.xyz is doing especially well in China, pulling in 145k from Xin Net and 23k from Todaynic.com. On average, 2,000 registrations each day are coming from China in the last month. Looks like .xyz is also getting mass media coverage as of late: Admin5, ChinaZ, and BearEyes to name a few.

.xyz continues to lead in the number of active sites as well, according to nTLDstats.com’s “Parking” page statistic. The registry’s blog continues to post about live .xyz websites that show the wide range of end users.

At ICANN51, .xyz’s CEO Daniel Negari presented at the Registrar, Registry, and TLD Joint Panel, covering the strategies his registry has taken in order to achieve its massive success. He made his presentation publicly available at gen.xyz/ABC.

Igloo.com – The sale of IG.com at $4,7 Million is no Longer Igloo’s Biggest Sale

TUESDAY, 06 NOVEMBER 2014 DOMAIN NEWS

According to the news from Domain.cn1(1) on November 6th, Igloo.com has recently announced that the sale of IG.com at $4,7 million is no longer the company’s biggest sale to date.

 

The announcement was made by CEO Tessa Holcomb. Tessa Holcomb said that IG.com is not the company’s biggest sale up to date.Igloo.com is associated with some of the world’s biggest domain name sales,including AO.com, Yoga.com,Card.com,Mojo.com and Top.com .

You can read the press release after the jump :

” Igloo.com, a leading broker of ultra premium domain names and websites, has recently shared some exciting data supporting speculations within the industry regarding the predominance of unreported sales. While many sales are recorded on well-regarded industry blogs including DN Journal and Domaining.com, it is exceedingly rare that Igloo.com reports any sale, let alone the actual sale price of a domain name transaction.

In her recent Domain Name Wire Podcast, Igloo.com’s CEO Tessa Holcomb alluded to the fact that last year’s highest public sale of IG.com at $4.7 Million is not Igloo’s biggest sale to date. And, while the Guinness World Record Holder, Sex.com may not actually be the “most expensive internet address domain name” on record, it’s probable we may never know which is. “Our clients are with us for our discretion and value their anonymity,” said Holcomb. “They appreciate that our Domain Advisors are able to work discreetly yet still achieve outstanding results.”

In total, Igloo’s Domain Advisors have closed upwards of $120 Million dollars in domain name transactions and is pleased to have been associated in the sale or acquisition of some of the world’s most valuable domain names including those such as IG.com, CARD.com, AO.com, Top.com, Quote.com, Yoga.com, Mojo.com and Dragon.com to name a few. Like many, Igloo.com experienced tremendous growth in 2013 with gross sales of Intellectual Properties totaling over US $35 Million.

While Igloo.com is honored to have had the opportunity to work with all of their clients, repeat clients are always considered a validation of one’s efforts and the satisfaction thereof. These customers report strong confidence Igloo’s ability to educate and advise brand managers on the value of domain name, as well as the team’s ability to work with a delicate combination of finesse and tenacity to get the job done.

“We were happy to offer the exclusive brokerage of the Top.com listing to Igloo.com after our previous positive experience during the sale of AO.com,” says Alex Kistenev. “Tessa was always communicative, thorough, but most importantly open and honest throughout the entire process. In the end, all parties to the sale were very pleased, and I credit that to Igloo’s market expertise.”

Ben Katz, CEO and co-founder of CARD.com has had the opportunity to work with the team at Igloo.com upon several occasions. “Our broker, Amanda reached out to me when I was working for another company. At the time she represented several great domain names and since I have long appreciated the value of a great domain, we kept in touch. The team at Igloo is not only reliable and efficient, but I also have appreciated their expertise in related legal nuances within the domain industry. I had expected professional representation to be too expensive to use for my smaller acquisitions, but I was wrong. At Igloo, I received the same professional-grade solutions and support during 4 and 5 figure domain sales as I did with a super-mega domain like CARD.com.”

 

 

Endurance International Group Reveals Purchase of BuyDomains.com from NameMedia

TUESDAY, 06 NOVEMBER 2014  DN Journal

According to the news from Domain.cn1(1) on November 6th, one of the best-known companies in the domain space, BuyDomains.com, was sold by NameMedia to the Endurance International Group (Nasdaq:EIGI) in the recently concluded 3rd quarter of 2014. The previously undisclosed sale was revealed when Endurance reported their 3Q-2014 financial results this morning. 

The exact price paid for the well established domain aftermarket platform and the nearly 1 million domains in the company’s portfolio was not disclosed as the acquisition listed as one of three companies Endurance purchased for a 

 

total of approximately $77 million. However, BuyDomains is believed to have accounted for a very high percentage of that total.

Jason Miner
will run BuyDomains.com for EIGI

The rapidly growing Endurance International Group, who earlier this year acquired Directi for $110 million, is a leading provider of hosting, domain and online business services offered through a family of well-known brands that includes Bluehost, HostGator, iPage, Domain.com, A Small Orange and ResellerClub. EIGI said it supports over 3.8 million subscribers and is able to tailor solutions for small businesses at every stage and level of sophistication. Endurance is headquartered in Burlington, Massachusetts, not far from BuyDomains’s location in Waltham, Massachusetts.

By selling BuyDomains, NameMedia has now effectively exited the domain business, having sold their other major aftermarket platform, Afternic, to Go Daddy in September of last year. That doesn’t mean we have seen the last of some of NameMedia’s well-known management team members though. According to Domain Name Wire, Chief Operating Officer Jason Miner will stay on to run BuyDomains for Endurance. 

Why Bill McClure Agreed to Pay $100,000 for Coffee.Club

TUESDAY, 06 NOVEMBER 2014 DN Journal

According to the news from Domain.cn1(1) on November 6th, a strange thing happened Saturday night (Nov. 1) in the middle of a T.R.A.F.F.I.C. conference Dessert Party on the show’s final night at the Fontainebleau Hotel in Miami Beach. While chatting with some friends there was a commotion on the stage of the ballroom where the party was underway. I looked around to see an old friend, Coffee.org owner Bill McClure, and three top executives from the .CLUB registry yelling excitedly about something. It was an impromptu celebration with no live microphones on the stage so it took a few moments to get a handle on what was going on. After piecing together shouts of “Coffee.club $100,000!“, “biggest .CLUB deal to date,” etc. I went over to find out if what I was hearing was true (after all it was November 1st not April 1st).

I climbed up the stairs to join the group on stage where McClure and .CLUB executives Colin Campbell, Jeff Sass and Michele Van Tilborg confirmed they had completed a deal to send the domain Coffee.club to McClure for $100,000, to be paid out over 10 years at $10,000 per year.

 

Bill McClure speaking during the Meeting of the Chiefs session that closed the final business day at T.R.A.F.F.I.C. East 2014 Saturday (Nov. 1) in Miami Beach.

Cheers! (with coffee of course): We took this shot immediately after .CLUB officials and buyer Bill McClure announced a $100,000 deal for McClure to acquire Coffee.club Saurday night in Miami Beach. Left to right are .CLUB CEO Colin Campbell, McClure, .CLUB CMO Jeff Sass and .CLUB VP, Business Development Michelle Van Tilborg.

While the deal was just finalized and announced Saturday night, the two sides had been talking about it for some time. The free financing arrangement was something .CLUB already had in place with their Startup.club offering that is designed to make it easier for entrepreneurs to acquire and build a business on a premium .CLUB domain. Still, paying $100,000 for a new gTLD domain over any length of time is a major commitment accompanied by a high degree of risk. 

On Sunday morning, Bill McClure (right) told
DNJournal’s Ron Jackson he had no buyer’s remorse. 

To make sure he didn’t have any buyer’s remorse, I waited until the next morning, at T.R.A.F.F.I.C.’s Farewell Breakfast Sunday, to get back together with McClure to see if he was still as excited about the deal as he was Saturday night. He was, and after talking with him, I began to understand why he believes he actually cut a pretty good deal for himself. 

In almost all cases, when you buy a domain name, you are on your own to make something out of it. Odds are you won’t hear another peep out of a registry or registrar unless you miss a payment or your domain is up for renewal. That will not be the case here. As it happens, McClure is just 

the kind of guy .CLUB needs. He is an end user with a very successful existing coffee business whose new venture will put the .CLUB extension in front of a lot of people. As such, McClure said .CLUB has agreed to spotlight Coffee.club in many of their marketing efforts. Since they are one of the few new gTLD registry operators who have actually spent significant money on marketing (in fact on Saturday they won the T.R.A.F.F.I.C. Award for Best Marketing by a New gTLD, as well as the Most Promising New gTLD award) that is a big value add to McClure, 

There is little doubt that despite making a big sale. .CLUB has as much on the line here as McClure does. McClure and many others at the party, including T.R.A.F.F.I.C. Co-Founder Rick Schwartz, noted that Coffee.club will be something of a “canary in the coal mine” for

.CLUB.  The name is a perfect fit for the coffee club McClure intends to build on it and it will be backed by a guy who already knows his way around the coffee business as well as anyone in the country. So the thought many expressed out loud was that if Coffee.club can’t make a new gTLD successful then nobody can. For that reason, every new gTLD operator, not just .CLUB, should be rooting for McClure to succeed.

McClure, who told me he had been thinking about setting up a coffee club for some time, doesn’t plan to waste any time in putting his plans for the domain into action. He told me he will have a live site up on Coffee.club within a couple of weeks. He has done that before – a prime example coming just a year ago when McClure bought Bouquet.com at the 2013 T.R.A.F.F.I.C. Las Vegas conference and quickly had a profitable business up and running on it. Of course, that was a .com. Can he do it again with a new gTLD? And what about possibly losing traffic to CoffeeClub.com? The latter domain, registered in 2000, is still a parked page (under WhoIs privacy) today. Right now there are just as many questions as answers – so it will be very telling to watch this particular case play out in the months ahead.
