El regular ascenso de los dominios .shop

Blog Dominios Blog Dominios: Fuente de la imagen: RegistarStats.com. La curva de ascenso en los registros de los dominios .shop, es una de las que pueden generar mayor seguridad, para los inversionistas de dominios que saben leer los indicadores de la estabilidad. Somos dados a hablar de máximas antiguas: “Easy come, easy go”, lo que fácil llega, fácil se va, es un dicho puede aplicarse a los casos en los que una “rush” o fiebre repentina (o una agresiva campaña de ventas) puede generar compras masivas de un tipo específico de dominio, para luego caer estrepitosamente en picada… No es el caso de los dominios .shop, en poder y gestión de la empresa japonesa GMO Registry. Los .shop, después de una empinada curva de registros, la cual duró hasta Octubre del año 2016, han seguido un ascenso moderado, agradablemente estable y constante, justo por todo el camino medio que transitaría un caballo percherón, muy bien plantado. La representación de una robusta empresa en el mundo occidental. Ya informaba Blogdominios, en Enero del año pasado, la saludable venta por 41,5 millones de dólares, al dueño japonés (ver nota). El hecho de que en la subasta correspondiente, hayan pujado compradores tan potentes como Amazon y Google, [...]

Our Post About Namejet’s PR On Shill Bidding From 2009: “What Happened At SnapNames Could Not Happen Here”

TheDomains TheDomains: I was looking back through some posts over the years that we wrote relating to the SnapNames bidding Scandal and found this one which I wrote arising from a  from November 2009 press release  by Namejet. Our post was entitled “Namejet Plays The “This Can’t Happen To Us” Card & That’s Troubling”. We cautioned Namejet […]

Some Domain Sales in the First Half of 2017

Domain Shane Domain Shane: Similar to what I’ve done previously in three or six month updates, I’m sharing some of my domain sales from the first half of 2017. There is always room for improvement, but I’m very happy with the sale amounts and the balance of liquid vs descriptive domains.
CCC.com – Ranging from the low end around $700 (IX4.com, TL4.com) to the higher end in the $3,000-$4,000+ range (P82.com, 65b.com, 87x.com) and others in between (AQ7.com, 8LM.com). With a maximum acquisition price in the $400-$500 range a couple years ago, these sure have treated me well, but my inventory is sadly running low.
Other liquid stuff – including ZNCK.com, 7F.org and Y1.org. I picked up the .org’s privately at the end of last year, knowing they were under-priced at the time, and I was able to unload them a few months later for nearly a double before commission. They didn’t make me a ton of money in gross dollars, but these types of gains add up over the years when profits are reinvested. ZNCK.com was from a portfolio purchase a couple years back, where the average price was $xx per domain.
HolyCow.com – I discussed this one previously, and it wasn’t a new sale, but I received the second of three equal payments, via an Escrow.com domain holding transaction, so it’s a sale in my mind. Now that I’ve received 2/3 of the payment, I wouldn’t be heartbroken if the buyer defaults on the third payment and I get the domain back. I don’t expect they will default, and I hope their business continues to succeed, because this Switzerland-based fast casual restaurant is led by several high-quality individuals.
Welcoming.com – I picked this up at the end of last year, and was fortunate to have an end user approach me through my Uniregistry for-sale page within a couple months, and pay an excellent multiple for my short hold. The buyer rebranded and upgraded from Welcome-Media.fr, and they’ve recently rolled out their site (linked screenshot below). I’ve talked about not loving “-ing” domains, but now that I’ve had good experiences with this domain and Transporting.com, perhaps I should re-assess my attitude.

For all the newcomers to the domain industry, keep in mind that for every domain that is successfully sold to an end user, there are hundreds of domains sitting in my portfolio that remain unsold. Don’t let anyone lead you to believe investing in domains is easy, or a quick path to riches. It’s neither.
As always, you’re welcome to share your recent sales, or any constructive comments on those listed above. I’m off on a little run today/tonight, so bear with any slow responses.
I hope to get another post out tomorrow with how the proceeds from the sales above were reinvested.
