My Recent Domain Acquisitions

Some-recent-domain-acquisitions-by-AbdulBasit.comHello and Assalamo Alaikum,

My sincere wishes to every Muslim reader of my blog all over the world a very happy EID Mubarak. Hopefully everyone is enjoying and having loads of fun.

I feel really good sharing my experience no matter it’s good or bad. I receive emails where people ask me what type of names I buy and what are the strategies behind those acquisitions.

I simply buy all type of names which I feel comfortable at selling in future. Normally I avoid buying adult/alcohol/gambling related domains. Other than that I hunt for every name I think can pay off well some day.

So let’s start with some of my recent acquisitions I made in the last couple of months or so.

Steps.net – Oh well a .net! I liked this name. I don’t buy too many .net domains but this wasn’t there to be left off. I paid couple of hundred Dollars less than I won finally this domain. Long story short,  I actually lost the auction but the winning bidder failed to make payment and all his bids were removed and as I was the second bidder, got the domain for $200 less than the first bidder won.

Liaison.net -Another .net domain! That’s enough for today’s list and I have to control myself on buying more .net domains 😉
.com is developed and I see great potential in this name.

GrowthHormones.com – I found this domain from Mark’s domain picks and thanks once again to Mark for sharing this decent name.

CaProperty.com – At first look I thought of Canada/Canadian/California Property, although “CA” can be the initials of many companies dealing in property business.

TheBreastCancer.com – I am fond of “THE” word domains and this can easily be used for breast cancer awareness, fundraiser, research foundation, etc. I think I have now over 10 domains starts with “THE”.

TAEQ.com – Another LLLL.com addition to my portfolio. Looks like an Arabic word to me.

AusCom.com – Can be used for an Australian communication company may be? I see there are many companies out there with Auscom and can be an upgrade for any one of them who pays the most 😉

DanielMorgan.com – Slow in terms of selling for a decent profit but I am starting to like two word common names. Have to be very selective in buying it.

RoseCottage.com – Another upgrade name for many companies.

EyeSeeYou.com – Brandable domain which can be pay off well on some golden day. Not sure when that is going to come…

LasikSpecialist.com – Do I need to explain this one? 😉

Careful with eyeseeyou.com, trademark pending and confusingly similar to icu with dozens of tm’s. We saw it dropping and stayed away.

Regarding CAproperty.com you might try contacting the buyer of CaliCondos.com (recent low $XXXX sale of mine at Godaddy). They might be interested in this name as the buyer apparently is a realtor in California.

LasikSpecialist.com might be a potential trademark issue. Check TESS.

I like the Steps.net domain. I was watching it but I couldn’t pull the trigger just because of the .net. A lot of people like .net, so with the nice generic nature and the vast amount of different kinds of “steps” available, I like it!

RoseCottage.com should find a buyer!

Why do you have to be selective about buying two word common names?

Thanks AbdulBasit. I call these “vanity names”. I try and pick ones that match people on LinkedIn as well, particularly those who do business using their full name, e.g., realtors, insurance salesmen, and senior executives (who might write a book or give speeches, etc. and are really into marketing their personal names). I buy ’em cheap and then price them at $995 to $1,500 for a sufficiently attractive ROI%.

Good names.

I had put the Liaison.net for BO somewhere but I missed.

Where did you BO it? Dropcatch/Snap?

Ah, ok! Congrats, that’s a good name.

Initially I used to be a Pool/Namejet customer for my Backorders but their epic failure in catching dropping names made me check a lot of WHOIS.

Finally, I found Snapnames and a few others 🙂

Thanks for sharing AbdulBasit. Some very nice investments.
I’ve looked at buying a few of the 2-word common names like DanielMorgan.com but never really knew what benchmark to use so your detailed reply to Vladimir was really helpful 🙂
