Back on October 18, the domain name Uncle.com sold for $66,002 at Sedo. The domain name registered since 1994 was owned by a Canadian IT specialist.
Many believed the domain was a steal. It had to be noted it was a wholesale transaction, an auction at Sedo.
The new buyer seems to agree with those that think it’s a 7 figure name. The domain name moved to Uniregistry.
The buyer as noted by the Sedo sales listing is out of the Cayman Islands.
Uncle.com is a tad cheaper at Uniregistry
There is no hard and fast rule when looking at dot org values vs the dot com reseller prices but… generally over the years I have seen and experienced averages of 10-20%+ depending on the term and situation. I watched and participated in seeing the dot org surpass the dot net in desirability for the most part. Watched the rations flip so to speak.
Now Brother.org just sold last month just after Uncle.com for how much again, 10K I believe, making Brother.com if it were available or for sale a likely high 5 to 6 figure name reseller price.
Now I ask you Ray, which would you prefer, Uncle or Brother? Which do you believe would see 7 figures first?
At some point the numbers have to matter, numbers do not lie, yes there are exceptions, yes we can all give examples of trades bucking a norm but for me and when the risks are this high, I invest based on numbers.
No surprise, it’s just a really great brand and domain. There are many one word domains that are not great at all, but this one is, for all the reasons I explained earlier (which means go read it there and don’t ask me to repeat it here).
PS: and note to new registrant – do adjust that other listing up to >= $1m.
