Some of my recent best acquisitions of 2018

Hello and Assalamo Alaikum,

Going through the posts, I found that I haven’t shared any acquisitions this year and recently I have bought some top class names which I would like to share with my fellow domainers., – I wouldn’t say anything about these names and would love to hear feedback from you guys if you like to give any… – Last month sold for $50,000 and couple of years back for $40,000. I don’t rely or buy/sell domains looking solely on the comparable sales but MicroBox is great addition IMO. Highly brandable and can be used for multiple purposes. – Love to have such short and brandable names. – Can be related to transportation, sports in Las Vegas. Anything more you can think off? – Universities and research institutions or some science related project. – Great domain for any festival, music, concert, etc. – Some official site related to applying U.S Citizenship or some guide, informative portal to U.S citizen, citizenship. – Neighborhood in Chicago, Illinois with a population of over 56,000 recorded in 2015. Usually I don’t invest in GEO names but this was difficult to leave out. – Some running shoes business, sports, running store.,, – I’ve almost stopped buying 4 letters this year and only few acquired this year. Focusing more on quality than quantity. Just trying to keep 4 letter .com share of around 7-10% in my portfolio. Currently it’s at 9%. Not sure but I think Shane Cultra who operates also likes to have 4L .com portfolio of around 7-10%., – Media names are hot and will be more in demand as the time goes by. – Spa, Perfume, Body/Face wash, Juice, Media company. Great to invest in domains which can be used for many purposes. – Can be used for many different purposes. – Great name for a software company.,, – 1 word .net are always good to invest which are highly brandable.

Rosemary.CO, Kicks.CO – It’s safe and great to invest in good one word names.

Feel free to give your feedback. Also if you like to share your recent acquisitions.

By the way, how many times per week do you get offer for this kind of names?

Great Names Abdul as usual. I personally like your strategy of acquiring only names which are having broader scope; can be used for multi-businesses.

Keep sharing your acquisitions.

All are very good name. I think Vegas Line has a lot of potential. I am surprised it was available for sale. All betting lines are set in Vegas. I am sure you would get high five figure minimum for the name. I love reading your blog because you share your personal expertise and experience.
