ExerciseBalls.com closed at DropCatch yesterday for $5,212. This was the third time the name sold, each time for a lower price. However there is one other step along the way, it sold as a website a little over 2 years ago on Flippa for $10,650. Ali Zandi was the seller of the website.
From the sales listing:
The domain ExerciseBalls.com was acquired in 2015 from SnapNames after being dropped by a major domain investor who bought the domain at a domain conference auction for $17,500 in 2008 (NameBio / DomainNameWire.com)
The website was implemented shortly after it was acquired in the summer of 2015. I have invested a significant amount of time building this business.
This is a 2-year old well-established website that is highly ranked in most search engines and is on the first page for Exercise Balls in most search engines.
The website has not been accepting payments aside from the first month because I have been overwhelmed with other commitments and a 1-1/2 year old baby. I started this website a few months before my baby was born so I didn’t have the time to focus on building the business.
With a category killer domain, ExerciseBalls.com is positioned to be the leader in this particular market. The site did receive one sale the first month before we even got the DigiCert EV SSL. It was about $90 for 2 exercise balls.
The website did have a Facebook page with just a few likes and a few updates. Looks like it was based out of San Francisco. Twitter account had no activity with just 4 followers and one tweet.
Exercise Balls has maintained it’s interest line over the last 5 years so it’s not a term that has become a fad or outdated like selfie stick.
