Don’t ask me what’s so special about the number sequence 029, but it must be important to someone because 029.com just sold for $110,000 USD at auction. Two more number domains, 980.com and 123123.com, fetched $40,000 and $20,000 each.
There were a number of other miscellaneous odd sales. RandomActsOfKindness.org sold for $25,000, which is quite a bit for such a long name. Kinderspiele.de (German for “Kids games”) garnered €16,000. Two more long names, IndependentFinancialAdviser.co.uk and DressUpGamesForGirls.com, sold for £9,975 and $15,000, respectively. Booking.travel also fetched $11,000– one of the best sales ever for the forlorn .travel TLD.
Generally very long names are not thought to have significant value. But these sales show that a domain is always worth what a buyer is willing to pay. In this case, it was quite a bit.
