Here is what the auction listing says:
Worth more than oil or gas and rumored to possibly become even
more valuable than gold some day soon!
H2O.COM is simply an incredible, rare, best of the best in domain names available, probably easily the top 2% of all possible domains available for sale if not
better! H2O.com also comes with the typo H20.COM which is a huge asset! Incredible pair, now making their first time ever debut, for sale!
What also makes this pair so beautiful and amazing is the fact that the letter O key is right below the number zero key 0, on all keyboards!
This means the owner will get all of the traffic from the pair with no worries of accidental spillover from typos, as many do type in the number zero as H20 instead of H2O though only about 1/4 of the amount.
Annual bottled water sales are approximately $150B USD! Mexico does $13b a year alone in bottled water purchasing annually! Coke, Dannon and Pepsi are currently fighting for dominance in the Mexican market see this article
Besides being an amazing site for selling adspace to the thousands of bottled water companies there are also so many more companies in the
water industry besides bottled water brands!
There are water service companies, water treatment companies, water treatment equipment companies, water clothing companies, water sports equipment companies and so much more! You could also turn this amazing domain name into a niche gaming site for water related games! Just an amazing domain name is H2O.com along with its typo H20.com – It just does not get better than this!
Everyone in the universe, knows what H2O means! In our opinion, this makes it even better than Water.com because it is not only catchier and more brandable but it is also universal unlike the word “water”! The word “water” changes in all languages and of course H2O is
H2O it does not change, universal recognition which truly makes this domain name so unique and so so rare!
H2O also gets 4,000,090 searches per month on google with 301,000 of that being exact match! H20 the typo with the number 0 gets 2,740,000 searches a month on google and 74,000 of that being exact match!
There is no doubt in our mind that H2O.com is one of the best domain names now available for sale on the planet and probably one of the coolest for sure!
The folks at water.com also own agua.com which is the spanish version of the word water and they have to own other language versions to try and monopolize the market, but with H2O.com and H20.com you don’t need to worry about any language barrier as there are none!
Reserve will not be revealed so please do not ask.
This is truly a very rare chance of a lifetime to own an incredible, incredible premium generic domain name that is simply just
amazing…opportunities like this just do not come around very often ever.
Domo Sapiens says
amazing ‘Universal’ domain, no doubt, water is becoming a commodity.
Are Flippa bidders certified?
no. you can hire some guys from Asia and put them bidding on your auctions
Domo Sapiens says
there goes the credibility…
…no smart buyer will participate in such a system.
Luc Biggs, also known as Federer, has been selling some premium .info domains for good sums at Flippa so smart money is everywhere
Another Flippa “sale” that will never be reported at DN Journal.
Know what I mean?
Domo Sapiens says
Who is the smart one here the buyer or the seller?
On this auction there is 12 bidders (21 bids) and none of them have ever bid before…

I am the owner of H2O.com and H20.com and yes the $200,000 was a real bid I can assure you that, but big deal I paid much more so not excited at all. In fact I have found all bids on flippa to be very low. I listed it again and this time around we had a final bid of $400,000 and we have yet turned it down. We are in no rush at all. H2O.com is far better than many of the recently reported sales that have sold for much more $ and .com continues to rise in value with all of the new gtlds coming out which are only going to cause more confusion and cause more to run to the gold in the confusions which of course is .com. BTW estibot is on crack for valuating and anyone who uses it as a serious tool is out to lunch. You can’t valuate with a robot that has no idea what to value a domain with a # in it at. Anyone thinking $200,000 is anything for these domains is a wannabee novice. $400,000 was a solid bid this time around and I can assure you all bids are REAL and can easily back them up just email Luke McCormack on flippa the Gm happy to share with you if you are doubting. Just because you cannot play at these levels does not mean you have to put down auctions you know nothing about. I can attest to you I have sold many millions on domains in the past 12 months and why would I report them? So bottom feeders can run after my buyers? I know tons of other sellers also who never report sales for the same reason. Todd Reum SuperbDomains.com

I also wanted to add I have been more than happy with the outcomes on Flippa and the auctions get much more exposure than MOST sites or domain brokers by far from what I have seen. There are a lot of end users and media buyers on Flippa and they have a deal flow system that gets a lot of attention from high end buyers that we will soon be tapping into. Seriously though, estibot can be ok but it is more of a novelty and seriously has no idea how to valuate domains with numbers in them with letters. I am just tired of people who assume and don`t know the fact about auctions. We have a mile high list of closed escrow.com sales in our history and we just happen to use flippa from time to time as it has been good for us.. We have sold mostly smaller domains on there and have closed $240,000 worth of smaller domain sales via flippa this year on smaller deals. As well Flippa sometimes gives you exposure to buyers who have seen your auctions and do not take part in it and might contact you a month or so after the auction closes if it did not sell and this can go viral and lead to some future private deals. It is truly great exposure that is for sure.
I agree with Todd on the above. H2O.com and H20.com are a fantastic set of domains and have received a lot of attention and genuine interest from a number of our high-end buyers on Flippa. Todd is one of our premium sellers and has always been a valuable part of the marketplace.
