$24 Million In Domain Sales To Be Added To DnJournal.com

In its announcement splitting Marchex into two separate companies and releasing over 500 domain name sales previously not reported, we reached out to Ron Jackson of DnJournal.com who has served as the “official” record keeper of domain sales to see how he would be handling these sales.

In all we count over $24 million dollars in domain sales which took place between 2008-2012 by Marchex.

In  answer to our question of whether and how Ron Jackson would be reporting these sales of Marchex on DnJournal, he stated:

“”These sales took place over a four year period and the dates were not revealed, so I can’t place them on the appropriate Top 100 charts for when the may have occurred.

So, instead I will put a permanent link to their list in the Domain Sales Archive: http://www.dnjournal.com/archive/domainsales-archive.htm under the links to the annual charts, with an explanation that they released that group of sales in late 2012 with sales made in the 2008-2012 period.

Kind of like the asterisk on Roger Maris’s old home run record :-)”

We support that approach and think its the only way of fairly accounting for the domain names sold during this period by Marchex.

It also continues to support the argument that only a fraction of all domain sales are ever reported.

For the record here are all 501 domain name transactions reported by Marchex today:

Comments

  1. Nat Cohen says

    As George suggests, DomainTools or perhaps even Archive.org, could pin down the transaction dates. Perhaps the effort could be crowdsourced.

    Here are a few to get started-

    Norwegians.com 2008
    exterminator.com 2009
    dhr.com 2010

  2. Louise says

    Very interesting! Thanx for publishing list!

    LocalDeals.com $500,000
    UltimateRewards.com $120,000
    MyDeals.com $100,000
    Cupons.com $50,000

    seem like a rich vein of coupon domains.

  3. says

    What do you guys think about Rick Schwartz JointVentures.com

    I like it…everything that Rick’s been preaching is ALL on one page.

    MHB, did you know about Ricks JointVentures.com site?

    Somebody should make a blog post about this…its awesome!

    Anyways, can not believe Marchex sold all these domain names…they are tougher than Frank Schilling in negotiations!

    Great Sales!

  4. BrianWick says

    yes – bnalponstog

    good god good god good god
    SeattleNow
    PortlandNow

    Seriously – I think the recent PortlandHomes.com auction at a mere $11K is better than a $250K hickey for both of these.

    And on and on and on….

  5. says

    It would be interesting to see how many are being used and how many are parked.

    From my experience as a seller and broker, MOST buyers do nothing with their domains. So, since I would expect most of these sales to be to end users, I would be curious to see how many/what percentage are developed.

    Also… sorted alphabetically you can’t help notice all the Chinese city domains and all the China keyword domains:

    ChinaCenter.com $33,000
    ChinaCulture.com $15,000
    ChinaDoctor.com $15,000
    ChinaFurniture.com $12,000
    ChinaHealth.com $15,000
    ChinaJewelry.com $12,000
    ChinaLawyer.com $15,000
    ChinaMoney.com $12,000
    ChinaPatent.com $22,500
    ChinaPress.com $12,000
    ChinaRealty.com $11,667
    ChinaSchool.com $11,667
    ChinaScience.com $11,667
    ChinaStyle.com $32,500
    ChinaToys.com $22,500
    ChinaTrademark.com $22,500
    ChinaVenture.com $12,000

    Then there are the e prefix domains:

    eBookReader.com $10,625
    eBuddy.com $14,000
    e-Cigarettes.com $15,000
    eHotels.com $10,625
    eJunkie.com $35,000
    e-Lottery.com $20,000
    eRaise.com $40,000
    e-Spirit.com $11,000
    eStar.com $44,767
    eSupplements.com $50,000
    e-Tab.com $15,000
    eTao.com $50,000

    One buyer bought most of the mega keyword domains:

    MegaBets.com $15,385
    MegaBits.com $15,385
    MegaBot.com $15,385
    MegaCash.com $15,385
    MegaDesign.com $15,385
    MegaDisk.com $15,385
    MegaFlowers.com $25,000
    MegaJackpot.com $15,385
    MegaLive.com $100,000

    There’s a couple in there that you wouldn’t think would turn into a seriously profitable business without a really significant investment even beyond the domain. I know the guy who bought RegisteredAgents.com and he’s doing really, really well with that site.

  7. Jon Schultz says

    The prices they’ve been getting for domains such as these may indicate that large companies prefer to purchase domains from other large companies. I am hoping that Archeo will offer domain brokerage services (however I think they could have chosen a better name).

  8. BrianWick says

    Hi Jon Schultz –
    Yes could have chosen a better name than Archeo.com – but maybe they all use Spokeo.com – damn and looking thru my stuff I have Roneo.com.

    All said it is all cheeseo

    not reported before?

    242.com, 252.com, 880.com, 8808.com, 444.com, etc reported a while back and stored on namebio.com database…

    also, prices don’t match. maybe some sales reported in EUR and others in USD…

    this list is smelling fishier every time i take a look at it.

    Jose

    Maybe the buyer listed the sale or maybe they were resold after the Marchex sale

    Remember those sales could be 4 years old.

    Also remember that Marchex is a public company and for them to issue false info is a huge deal with lots of legal ramifications

  11. jose says

    Michael, the examples I listed were not resold. same buyer all the time AFAIK.

    another user here that was also a buyer refer the price he bought the domain was not what was reported – but close.

    being a public company doesn’t mean much. we have had several examples in the last 20 years of wrong doings from people and companies who were supposed to be transparent and audit by third parties.

    like a friend of mine says “you know, mathematics is not an exact science”
