Betting and gambling related names are always a hot topic in domain names. As I wrote about last week gambling related names as exact match keywords top the list when it comes to names like casino and poker. Bet and betting are also popular.
On Wednesday Bet89.com closed at expiry auction. The domain was originally owned by bet89 Group Limited out of the Philippines. They let the domain expire and it was purchased at auction on GoDaddy in 2016 for $2,003. The domain name closed on Wednesday at $10,500, again at GoDaddy auctions.
Bet89.com was purchased in 2016 by a Chinese registrant who had a sales lander for the name in Chinese.
GoDaddy wins again.
