Domain names sales for May 17, 2020 that transacted for the second time around.
Sometimes it’s as simple as the name expired and it’s not an end user buying but rather a domain investor. Sometimes it is a sale to another end user. Other times the name even though expired is a bit more trendy and trades at a higher price.
These second time around posts can be used in a variety of ways, sometimes it’s to see the burn down value of a name, what were investors willing to pay for a name an end user once valued so high?
Perhaps it’s to see a great flip, a name acquired on the cheap that was flipped for 10, 20, 100x.
I do like looking at names that were allowed to expire at GoDaddy and then the very next year also expire, how did sentiment change, when just about all the variables are the same.
For new investors it’s important to understand that many times these were drops. No domain investor benefited. GoDaddy, NameJet, DropCatch are the winners here. But as I said it gives a second snapshot in time at how people valued a particular domain name.
Hopefully you get something out of them even if it’s just to satisfy a curiosity.
