    Imingle.com sells for $30,000

    If there were one thing I was hoping we could have left behind in The Noughties, it’s the stupid “i” branding scheme. Unfortunately, my hopes were dashed with the sale of imingle.com for $30,000 USD. Just because Apple puts ‘i” in front of everything doesn’t mean everyone else has to …

    6m.com sells for $16,055

    Two character domain 6m.com has sold at auction for £10,026 ($16,055 USD). Though the name isn’t exactly descriptive, it is short and easy to remember. Just about any website or company could be branded under “6m.” Other recent sales include: catholicsoulmates.com- $8,995 USD speaq.com- $5,000 USD allwhites.com- $5,000 USD pacomp.com- …

    The .de extension is doing very well this week. Two-character domain 66.de sold at auction recently for $12,780. While this sale isn’t big compared to yesterday’s, it’s still a good chunk of change. Other notable sales include ad4sure.com for $2,350, giftideas.org for $2,500, and taxes.co.uk for $5,000. In my view, …

    Gartenmöbel.de sells for $214,500

    A few weeks ago, Büromöbel.de (German for “office furniture”) sold for €69,000 ($100,581 USD). In a completely different yet similar sale, Gartenmöbel.de (“garden furntiture”) has sold at auction for nearly twice as much at €150,000 ($214,500). What can I say, Germans must really like furniture. Other sales include Conclude.com for …

    ClimateGate.com sells at auction

    Those familiar with the Climategate scandal will recognize the value of climategate.com, which sold at auction right after the news broke for $10,099. Personally, I think the seller could have gotten a higher price had he waited a few days or even a week after the scandal broke. Looking at …

    Advertising firm Marchex sold Dominio.com last week to RegistrarAds, Inc. for $250,000 USD. “Dominio” is Spanish for “domain.” Also of note is 64.com, which sold at auction for $89,000 USD. Those in the know will tell you that 64 not only has close connections with the N-64 gaming console, but …

    Russia.com sells for $1.5 million

    Russia.com sold recently for a jaw-dropping $1.5 million USD. Considering the country’s large economy and emerging Internet population, the sale price is quite reasonable. Currently, the domain is being used by the Russia Channel as a hotel and travel guide for tourists. This is a good use for the name, …

    e.biz sells for $66,001

    Single-character domain e.biz has sold at auction for €39,764 ($66,001 USD). While this looks like a lot at first, when compared to similar past sales, one sees how weak the .biz extension is on the market. In 2000, for instance, Biz.com sold for $625,000 USD. Despite an increase in average …

    Whiskey.com sells for $185,000

    Whiskey.com sold at a recent domain auction event for a whopping £110,073 ($185,000 USD). Though it is one of the biggest sales of the year, the buyer’s identity has not been made public. One disadvantage of Whiskey.com is that the word “whiskey” can alternatively be spelled “whisky.” The form used …
