BuyDot.org, an aftermarket, discount domain website is reporting increased sales in app related domains, law related domains and product sales domain names.
According to BuyDot.org, .com, .co and .me are the top selling domain extensions over the past six months. Dot me domains overtook .net domains, but it wasn’t clear if this was because inventory for .net domain names was depleted over those months.
The website also reported that the consistently popular domain names were those in either the category of entertainment or priced at $499 and below.
The value of search engine friendly domain names for both offline and online businesses remains a constant. Even with the changes made by Google to their algorithms, keyword infused domain names still appear to have some weight to them.
Other trends reported by BuyDot.org, in customer spending habits, that Australians lead the pack in domain name acquisitions, followed by the US and then Canadians.
Generic domain names are amazing because they provide the buyer with the credibility and traffic. For instance, Weather.com is one of the most used websites worldwide. It became the most used website because of its brand, its name, its high quality content and credibility. Even if it is not the best website out there that provides people with weather information it is still the most used one. Big companies are starting to catch up on the power of these domains names and they are starting to buy generic domains such as Bank of America, CNN and America Online. Generic domain names have the ability to attract unique users and large amounts of traffic. This is due to the fact that most users do what is called “direct navigation”. This means that users will type what they want directly. For instance, if they are looking for information about credit cards, they would type creditcards.com. This is also why different search engines like Yahoo, Bing and Google would rank the generic domain names higher than others. This is why having a generic domain name can put anyone in the lead.
A historic land rush is underway for vast new swaths of the Internet: Amazon has bid for control of all the Web addresses that end with “.book.” Google wants “.buy.” Allstate wants “.carinsurance.”
But the single most aggressive bidder for lucrative new Web domains is a little-known investment group with an intriguing name: Donuts Inc. Its $57 million play for 307 new domains — more than Google, Amazon and Allstate combined — has prompted alarm among industry groups and Internet watchdogs.
They warn that Donuts has close ties to a company with a well-documented history of providing services to spammers and other perpetrators of Internet abuses. Should Donuts come to control hundreds of new domains, including “.doctor,” “.financial” and “.school,” consumers could see a spike in online misbehavior, these critics warn.
“If the allegations concerning Donuts turn out to be true, these 300 top-level domains could be the Wild West for fraud and abuse,” said David Weslow, a Washington, D.C.-based lawyer who represents several major corporations.

ICANN has published a list of domain names that their owners, or applicants to new domain names, are disputing with others because of potential confusion among web users on grounds of similarity.
The list, containing hundreds of domain name sets, has been put together by ICANN's "string similarity review" for applications submitted as part of the "New gTLD Programme". [Read More]
Despite the short month, February is always a big month for domain industry buzz thanks to the Super Bowl. And that’s where we’ll start this month’s list.
1. Wow: the Bar Refaeli Go Daddy Super Bowl commercial – it had the right mix of supermodel and icky factor. This commercial keeps on giving. Ironically, it’s not Bar Refaeli that’s getting the most play — it’s geeky kisser Jesse Heiman.
2. ICANN terminates registrar with over 75,000 domain names – ICANN has sent a termination notice to Bargin Register, a registrar with over 75,000 .com domain names.
3. Nintendo files complaint over WiiU.com – video game company decides to go after WiiU.com domain after launching new system.
I buy many domain names at NameJet, and on occasion I bid on names at SnapNames. I think there are some good values out there, especially when you manage to find a name that has few bidders. One thing I think is important is to do some research on the previous owner to try and figure out some things about the domain name to determine if it’s worth buying (in addition to keyword research). By looking at the Whois history and doing a bit of additional research, you can uncover some possible reasons for why it’s expiring: [ Read More ]
The ultimate return on any investment has got to be in the form of an epic domain sale. Depending on when and where you buy your domain name, you will pay as little as $3.99 for the rights to register your site with a unique .com (or .net, .org). But what happens if someone else decides that they really, really, REALLY want the name you’ve already chosen? One word: JACKPOT.
Here is a list of some of the biggest domain sales in the history of the internet. It shows why so many people make a serious hobby out of buying and selling domain names: Sex.com – $14 million, business.com – $7.5 million, beer.com - $7 million, casino.com - $ 5.5 million, loans.com – $3 million, autos.com – $2.2 million, coupons.com – $2.2 million, Bingo.com – $1.1 million, WallStreet.com – $1.03 million, men.com – $1.32 million, AsSeenOnTV.com – $5 million, ForSaleByOwner.com – $835,000 ,beauty.com – $800,000, cinema.com – $700,000, taxes.com – $700,000, military.com – $500,000 ,BlackJack.com – $460,000 , Art.com – $450,000 , vote.com – $250,000, Bingo.com – $200,000, Thin.com – $200,000, Engineering.org – $198,365, Architecture.com – $190,000, Beef.com – $150,000, Athlete.com $122,000 , GarageSales.com – $110,000, Meetpeople.com – $100,000, Cleaning.com – $100,000, happybirthday.com – $55,000,
It is easy to see why big companies would pay for these domains and what kinds of sites they may be used for. But here are some other high-sellers that make you wonder just what they are going to be used for: Tom.com – $2.5 million (What? No Jerry.com?) Rock.com – $1 million (Because computers and rocks just make sense) Sky.com – $1 million (A site for people who refuse to stay grounded) If.com – $1 million (Why not?) me.com – $460,000 (You know what it’s all about…) Alice.com $250,000 (For fans of the television show) OD.com $220,000 (When you’ve been on the internet for 48 hours straight) Fruits.com – $160,000 (A place for apples and oranges to hook up without being judged) Modern.com $160,000 (Because ancient.com is so 1990) 444.com $178,888.89 (What’s this for?) question.com $175,000 (For inquiring minds) Rainbow.com $170,000 (Where’s potofgold.com?) MR.com – $125,000 (That’s MR.com to you, pal!) Push.com – $125,000 (It automatically redirects to shove.com) Glory.com – $115,000 (A sister site to CarpeDiem.com) And last but not least… Fish.com – $1,020,000 (I wonder how much Fish.net was?)
Fortune 500 Yum! Brands among this week’s domain buyers.
This week’s end user sales list is a little shorter than usual, but that doesn’t necessarily mean there were fewer end user buys last week. I generate this list by looking through bulk whois records, and some weeks more sales pop out as end user buys than others.
Here’s an interesting one. CeeJay Software Limited says it offers data backup service called CrashPlan PROe. So it bought CrashPlan.co.uk for $1,200. But this doesn’t appear to be the same company that’s behind the popular CrashPlan.com service, codefortytwosoftware. (You know, the company that forgot to renew its domain name and then blamed GoDaddy when its site went down as a result). (Sedo)
An Austin entrepreneur who helps people come up with color schemes for their homes dropped the hyphen in her domain name, getting ColorGenie.com for $2,388 (Afternic).
Another hyphen dropper: Ex-ForcesJobs.com dropped the hyphen for $1,256 (Afternic).
Enterprise information management software company OpenText bought SecureInformationExchange.com for $2,500 (Afternic).
BayCare Health System in Florida bought FloridaHealth.org for $2,988. This is not the group’s first foray into the domain aftermarket. (The company doesn’t own FloridaHealth.com, though.) (Afternic)
Another healthcare company acquisition: Temple University Health System Inc bought TempleOaks.com for $2,600. They already own TempleOaks.org. (Afternic)
Aramco Services Company, a subsidiary of energy giant Saudi Aramco, bought ASCDC.com for $1,395 (Afternic).
I’m not sure about this one… The Ritz-Carlton in Sarasota bought JackDusty.com for $1,795 (Afternic).
Fortune 500 company Yum! Brands, Inc. (Taco Bell, KFC, Pizza Hut) bought HungertoHope.com for $1,477 (Afternic).
Gift Card Impressions, LLC bought MallGift.com for $2,588 (Afternic)
HealthReform.com sold to staffing company Cabildo Staffing for $9,000.
Over the years, I’ve learned there are many, many ways to make money from domain investments. As you can probably tell simply by seeing the names I’ve sold and what I own, I personally prefer to purchase descriptive keyword domain names like DogWalker.com, Torah.com, and EventManagement.com among others. These are exact match terms for keyword searches like professions, business fields, objects…etc. Each week in the aftermarket sales reports, I see dozens of other domain names sell for decent figures, and I can only assume most were hand registered by the seller at some point. There always seem to be sales of brandable keyword domain names like ClearBell.com and made up terms like Vipee.com (both names sold last week via Afternic). People can make a nice living selling brandable keyword domain names and made up terms, in addition to exact match keyword domain names. Of course, there are plenty of others, like ccTLD, gTLD, and IDN among others, but for the sake of this, let’s keep it .com.
For a long time, businesses could be successful by buying a domain name that exactly matched the keywords of what they did. For example, if you owned a keyboard sanitizing service, you would buy something like KeyboardSanitizing.com.
Without any extra work, you could occupy a top 5 ranking on Google, easy peasy, thanks to the Exact Match Domain (EMD) loophole in the Google search algorithm.
However, in the last few weeks, Google has closed that particular loophole, which has many search engine optimization pros wailing, gnashing their teeth, and rending their garments.[Read More]

Before I start, you should know that buying domain names is my dirty little habit. Some people smoke, others cheat—I go online in the dead of night and have a look at what domain names are available.
Just one look. But with all addicts, I can't leave it at a look, so I often buy a domain name...just the one...it's cheap—until you own ten of them! [Read More]
TOURISM IRELAND has acquired the domain name Ireland.comfrom The Irish Times Ltd as part of plans to unveil a new website for the tourism industry later this year.
Tourism Ireland chief executive Niall Gibbons said the domain name was “a natural fit” for the work the all-island State body does to promote Ireland overseas.
The ease of recognition for the domain name will make the site stand out as a destination for potential visitors when they perform online searches relating to Ireland, he added.
Tourism Ireland has paid a fee of €495,000 to The Irish Times under a digital co-operation agreement. “We are very pleased that the organisation responsible for promoting the island of Ireland overseas will have the opportunity to leverage the brand and URL that is Ireland.com,” said Irish Times managing director Liam Kavanagh.[Read More]
An Australian domain name company has sold Hobart.com.au for $65,000 to a website hosting business after purchasing the website for just $875 back in 2005, highlighting the potential riches in buying and selling geographic domains.
While the sale isn't anywhere near the highest figures earned through the sale of domain names, it represents the potential for lucrative sales in the domain name business, which has become a favourite among tech-savvy investors.
However, the domain seller suggests it may actually be a bargain price, given the problems of developing geographic domains.
Publishing Australia owner David Lye, who is also involved in registrar NetFleet, told SmartCompany this morning the domain is one of several the company picked up back in 2005.
"You had to pay a premium to register one, and it was a bit of luck in actually grabbing them. We got Hobart, Parramatta, Batemans Bay, and a few others."
While Lye had approached the city of Hobart last year about a possible sale, they declined. "They're not entirely easy to convince," he says.
"They also have the opportunity to get a .gov.au domain, which sometimes they want, although in my mind it can be inferior."
Website hosting company Barkhost, led by Hamish Palmer, picked up the domain. The company owns several others.
Palmer was contacted by SmartCompany this morning, but was unavailable before publication.
But while $65,000 is a hefty sum for a URL, Lye says the domain was sold for what many in the industry would consider to be a bargain price – and that it has something to do with the difficulty in developing geographic-based domains.
"Everybody knows Hobart.com.au, but it's actually quite hard to develop because people are looking for all different things. If you buy 'car insurance' then people know what you're doing, but Hobart.com.au is a lot broader."
"That actually makes it quite hard to develop as a website."
There have been several expensive domain sales this year, including many worth more than six figures. Lye suggests more are hitting that top-tier selling territory – and the space is becoming much more popular among tech-savvy investors.
"This year there have been several, including 'carinsurance' which actually sold on eBay for $250,000. There have been a lot more six-figure sales lately."
