Your gateway to tomorrow : The future, as seen 32 years ago from a Bell System ad

acro.net acro.net: I was recently reading through the 50th anniversary issue of Newsweek, published in the spring of 1983, that I found in my dad’s library. The articles spanned the events during the half century predating the issue, and are both educating and entertaining. Posting the automotive ads alone would be fun, but for now I’m focusing […]

Some Q2 Domain Acquisitions

Domain Shane Domain Shane:
It was sloooooow, particularly compared to Q1 acquisitions. The primary reasons include (1) I consistently got outbid, and (2) my day job was crushing me, so I didn’t take the time to focus nearly as much on domains. Below is a sample of my acquisitions from the second quarter of this year. Handful of CCC.com Domains Including a few NLL.com which I’ll hold onto for awhile, and a few LNL and NLN which I’ll flip. The majority were acquired from a seller I’ve been buying from for a couple years. Extremely liquid. Transporting.com I’m not much of a “-ing” domain fan, but the price was right for this one, I like the root keyword of “tranport”, and I like the $5+ CPC and 10,000+ searches per month, per Estibot. Car / truck / freight transport and logistics are big business, and there are some “transport” domain comps to support that, such as BoatTransport.com for $16,000 last year, and CarTransport.com for $85,400 in 2012. Of course, those are apples / oranges comparisons. There are many companies that use “transporting” in their domain name and might be looking for an upgrade some day, such as BMTransporting.com, BruneiTransporting.com, PrestigeTransporting.com, and many more. Shadows.com It’s a flexible one word domain that I believe could be used for anything from security, to mystery, to health, and more. I’d rather have the singular, but it sold for $67,500 back in 2012 and the site is developed and raised $3 million in funding earlier this year. There are many other sites which use ‘shadow’ in their domain and may be seeking an upgrade some day, such as DigitalShadows.com which raised $8 million in funding earlier this year, and ShadowNetworks.com which has raised over $20 million. You’re welcome to share any of your recent acquisitions, or critique my short list above. Photo Credit
