Several more domain purchases of 2017

Hello and Asslamo Alaikum,

I think the last acquisitions post was made in February 2017 so I thought it’s the time to share once again.

Beginning of this month, I now have hit the mark of 1,500 domains in my portfolio.

Usually I share only few domain purchases and try to post those which gives clear idea of what type of names I acquire and this may help others in understanding. This doesn’t mean one should start buying similar type of names and you should be doing your own research as everyone has their own budget, knowledge, skills, ideas and luck, etc.

I have had a little success in selling .CO domains for profit and I always like to buy 1 word .CO names and 3L .CO which are good to invest IMO. So this year I got several of them which are listed below.

Renovations.CO, Craze.CO, Courtney.CO, Lynch.CO – Got 1 word .CO names which I think are good to have.

COK.CO, NOI.CO, LUS.CO, LOR.CO, TAY.CO, TEZ.CO, MDN.CO – These type of combinations are selling for low-mid 4 figures range and I think they are good to invest. But prepare to hold them for long time as they are not 3L .coms 😉

FoodShopping.com – Online food/grocery store.

BeExtreme.com – Adventure/sports loving, an aggressive and positive tagline.

LookAround.com – I love to invest in such highly brandable domain which can be used for multipurpose. You just name it. Thanks to Jamie Zoch (DotWeekly) for helping in acquiring this domain.

TheWater.com – Again a domain which can be used for many different niches and not only a water supply/bottle, aqua related company. And again thanks to Jamie for the same above reason 🙂

Cryptyc.com – Crypto related company.

BornToSparkle.com, BornToImpress.com, BornToInnovate.com – Long shot names.

ChallengersGroup.com – Sensible group names always does well. Although singular would have been better.

SHST.com, AGFF.com, OZHT.com, CMNZ.com – Can’t live without buying 4L .com domains even though I know they are slow to sell 😀

Feel free to comment and/or share your recent acquisitions.

    I recently bought TheKeyboard and StarterDrones.
    Got MyCoolJob as well. Not cheap getting good domain names now.

    • TheKeyboard and StarterDrones are good one’s Hemant.
      I completely agree with you. It’s getting more difficult and requires more time, research and money for finding gems as the times goes by.

    Hello AbdulBasit,

    I have about 200 domain names, most are .com and a few .net

    MiniDroneCamera.com
    PlayElotto.com
    WifiSmartPlug.com
    Finances360.com
    ipoker360.com
    Denims247.com

    Just to name a few.

    Thanks for the post.

    • Thanks for sharing your numbers and domains as well!
      I would suggest to focus more on high quality names which has wide range of endusers and not limited to any one particular product. The more potential endusers, the more value of that domain will be.

      Best wishes!

    • Glad you like the names and thanks for sharing your purchases 🙂

      I always admire your approach of buying domains especially at hand reg names. TheKale, BecomeSmart are good one’s and some others too.

  7. Fatih OZ says:

    Thanks for the info Abdulbasit.

    Oppositely i am decreasing my portfolio to consist only of names which i think are medium-high value.

    Lets see if it will work.

    I believe you sold CuppyCakes.com for $5,000 in 2016 but I like to tell you now I have just purchased CuppyWorld.com & MyCorporal.com (MyWorld.com sold for staggering $1.2 million!). Also I have AssortedCakes.com which is now for sale at Sedo.

  12. Will says:

    Congrats on the buys! Great names. Good to hear you are having success with .CO I believe we bought and sold some in the past. Even though our main focus is .Com we have seen some great sales with .Org and .Net recently.

    FoodShopping.com pretty cool domain straight to the point type of site. It sounds a bit informational but I agree, this can work as shopping site for groceries.

    As soon as you obtain a new name you put the hosting to Uniregistry correct? That is your usual routine?

    – Will

    • Thanks for commenting and your feedback which is appreciated 🙂

      To answer your question – Yes, after acquiring the domain, I simply point towards Uniregistry lander and list at couple of marketplaces like Sedo and Afternic as well to get additional exposure.

      Would love to see what you guys have been acquiring recently 🙂
