Domain Sales – buckle up, just went for 135k

22 Jun

The recently concluded TRAFFIC (in New York) conference had their domain auction, with the total proceeds exceeding $11,000,000. The two notable giants were for 3 million (which I do agree with) and for 1.8 million (which I don’t agree with).

There were some other interesting domains that didn’t sell ( was priced at 3 million). Regardless, the real biggie was the one in my title – went for $135,000. itself is an actual site, thought Alexa/Compete don’t seem to think much of it.

So – $125,000 (lets give the site a value of $10k) – worth it?

lots of speculators buying up .mobi and what not. Sigh, someone told me recently that in the future these domains wont be used anymore since there will be a better way to find stuff, which i think is true, so make the best of them while they last. and if icann let us have as many TLDs as we wanted, domains would be worthless :)

Andrew, if you check the full auction results you will notice that out of all the listed .mobi names only two sold at the auction.

That’s pretty expensive. $135k would have been good value a couple of years ago for but now maybe $50k is closer to the mark.
