written by John Chow on October 29, 2006

I'm Jim Chao, B**ch!

It would be nice to provide the source you got the info from. Give credit where it is due

perhaps dnjournal.com?

Michael Zhao May 13, 2009 at 11:27 am

Sheeet…imagine 20 years ago…where you somehow knew which domain names to buy then sell…like google, yahoo, digg, to name a few…and sell only with one condition…you own 2% of the company…HAa…you’ll never work again!

Michael Zhao’s last blog post: Time…is not on any bodies side.

John Chow October 29, 2006 at 5:55 pm

Mike – No I got it from Moniker.com, the people who held the auction.

Richard February 14, 2007 at 2:56 am

Hi John,

Just to clarify, if you got the list from Moniker, they must have cut/paste it from my list at:

http://auction.domainmanager.com (also available at http://xr.com/auction )

The story – A few minutes into the live Auction, I noticed everyone was individually trying to keep track of the prices. So I created/updated the page live on my laptop during the auction using the Custom HTML Feature available at DomainManager.com. I IM’d it out to a few people and within a few minutes several hundred people were monitoring the page, with thousands visiting after the auction ended — I didn’t realize it would become the semi-official results list.

I’ll be at the next Auction in Vegas which according to the TRAFFIC Conference schedule (http://targetedtraffic.com/lv_schedule.html
) should be at: 2:30pm – 5:30pm PST March 7, 2007. As long as the wireless is working ok in the room, I’ll try and do another live tracking of the Auction.

Just go to xr.com/auction during/after the auction.

Thx

Richard
DomainManager.com

Ivan Minic October 29, 2006 at 6:02 pm

One all time list would be nice too ;)

meh[x] October 29, 2006 at 6:41 pm

i wonder how much digg is worth

Eli Burford October 29, 2006 at 6:47 pm

A few two letter domains didn’t sell.. nice.
If I were there I would’ve bidded a nice amount of about $40 for some two letter domains ;)

Might of annoyed a few of them though :P

artsky October 29, 2006 at 7:11 pm

nice info. maybe i’ll think of more creative domain names and sell it as well.

luvs21 October 29, 2006 at 7:15 pm

i wonder how much MS paid for live.com…?!

Luke October 29, 2006 at 8:10 pm

Very nice list. Thanks and nice work :)

Frank Michlick (DomainEditorial.com) October 29, 2006 at 8:34 pm

DNjournal.com does not have the results yet. Here’s another list kept by Richard Lau of DomainManager.com: http://xr.com/auction/

Michael October 29, 2006 at 10:42 pm

This post just proves my point on the comment I made regarding your post, “Making Money With Domain Names”. If you want to get into the domain name business you need serious financial backing and the average internet marketer should not be trying to get in that game. It’s a monumentally harder than you made it sound in your post.

Guk October 29, 2006 at 11:38 pm

Nice list. Well done John!

Tony October 30, 2006 at 6:03 am

This still probably has a lot to do with the existing traffic (possibly from search_keyword.com address-bar searching) and existing links.

Because rather than paying tons of money for a keyword.com, I could often get keyword.foreign_country for $10.

Risky business indeed.

Nomar October 30, 2006 at 2:03 pm

nice list, but im amazed about some names.. like queens.net… worth more than $ 5,000 imo..

and what about: CSStore – Not sold
whats up with that name? its a .net or .com ?

anyhow.. the auction was a succes if i see it quickly :)

Healthren October 30, 2006 at 3:01 pm

Healthren is a website which introduce healthy life , the medical treatment health care , disease prevention and cure , cosmetology , lose weight and slimming , health diet , attending to health medical science of first aid and Traditional Chinese medicine .

Who can tell me How Much the Domain Name Healthren.com Is?

David Mackey October 30, 2006 at 8:30 pm

Interesting that some you would’ve thought would go didn’t sell. Was there a starting bid price on these?

Walter Mason October 31, 2006 at 8:45 am

Kinda off the subject but how do you go about promoting a parked domain? I have my domain parked on http://www.sedo.com right now and I can earn extra money doing so but you can’t even google my domain so how can I expect traffic to come there. What can I do?

Jason November 9, 2006 at 7:51 am

Walter, most services like Sedo prohibit you from actively marketing your parked domains, they’re generally meant to monetize type in traffic. To promote your domain can get you booted from the service.

Nikolai November 25, 2006 at 6:40 pm

there are lots of places that give you an estimate of the domain worth… but unless you sell your domain for that or higher sum, these are nothing but numbers :-)

My domain is estimated to be worth between $2000 and $20000.. would I get the money if I am to sell it? Good question :-)

Proof Reader November 30, 2006 at 9:09 pm

Holy Shit. You better start typing using a proof reader.
Whay you ask ?
You have BeachfrontPropery.com – $32,000
So just for the heck of it I copied it and typed it in to see who owns it.
Damn…its available !!!!
I hit the purchase key…..
It sucked back my money…I couldn’t believe my eyes !
I know own BeachfrontPropery.com
Wait….a fucken minute. I copied a miss spelled word…where in the shit is the letter T in Property ?
I now own BeachfrontPropery.com and BeachfrontPropery.ca

Anyway rather than rant any more about it……
I got some Beach front Propery in Nova Scotia Canada if you need to drown yourself like I need to right now !
I am now trying to cancel that stupid mistake….
I must put on my dark shade so I can hide the tears of dissapointment !

Richard February 14, 2007 at 2:59 am

3 BeachfrontPropery.com – sold $32,000

corrected on the “official” list at:
http://xr.com/auction
http://auction.domainmanager.com

to:
3 BeachfrontProperty.com – sold $32,000

Michael Zhao May 13, 2009 at 11:17 am

It depends on how much anyone is willing to buy it for…and if they are willing to buy it for that much…the name must have potential to go big!
