Taking a look at Saturday’s domain name sales action and names that transacted for the second time around. ProfitNetwork.com saw better days and BuyDomains scored with PixelShare.com.
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.
Hopefully you get something out of them even if it’s just to satisfy a curiosity.

BuyDomains recorded a nice flip on the name PixelShare.com. The domain was acquired for $306 on GoDaddy auctions back in 2016. BuyDomains sold the name for $4,088 on Saturday.
