    Bankruptcy.net sells for $56,250

    Bankruptcy.net sold this week for a solid £33,932 ($56,250 USD)– a price some would have to go bankrupt to afford. At auction, the .com version of the name would likely sell for at least ten times the aforementioned amount. Bankruptcy law is a very profitable and in-demand niche, after all. …

    So far this has been a busy week for domain sales, but it’s not over yet. Luck.com sold yesterday for a cool £421,927 ($675,000 USD). Hopefully the buyer is feeling lucky, because I think this name is worth a lot more. It would be perfect for an online gambling site …

    Healthcareadministration.com sells for $10,000

    Despite being more than 20 letters long, healthcareadministration.com sold for £6,255 ($10,000 USD) this week. With the current debate over government-run healthcare raging stateside, the name has quite a market. As for the domain’s long-term value, I think there is none. Healthcare is an issue on the minds of many …

    Over the weekend, Koken.com sold at auction for £7,820, or $12,450 USD. But just who or what is “Koken?” The best bet is probably Koken Co, Ltd, a Japanese company that makes a variety of medical devices and implants. Interestingly, this sale is less than a week after Qmed.com– the …
