You need a little luck in the name game, for the stars to align properly. Sometimes it comes along just right.
I am interested in betting related names and I remember seeing a few months back that USbetting.org sold for $15,000. I thought that was a great price.
Last week while posting the top sales for the day I saw USbetting.net sold for $15,000, I was like wow same price, was it the same buyer?
USbetting.net is under privacy but has moved to the same registrar as USbetting.org. So I am willing to bet it’s the same buyer. The .org is up and running and the .net is just a holding page.
Here is where the luck part came in, USbetting.net was registered in 2009 and the registrant gave up in December 2017, the domain expired. A new registrant hand registered the name in March of 2018. The U.S. Supreme Court allowed states to legalize sports betting in May. The .org sold in May for $15,000 on Sedo and the new .net registrant was sitting in a great position. August 3 the domain sold on Sedo.
The .com version is sitting parked at Sedo with a 50,000 GBP min offer to bid.
