Abdul Basit’s June numbers are incredible – here’s the domains he sold for $76,540

I have to say that I think we’re at a peak time in the domain industry when it comes to people sharing data about what’s working and what isn’t. One of the people I’ve been the most impressed with is Abdul Basit who regularly shares his sales data and his June numbers were impressive to say the least.

If you haven’t been following along with Abdul’s adventures with Afternic, you can play catch-up, here’s details on his sales this year so far:

In total Abdul sold $76,540 in domain names in June and his acquisition cost was under $5,000. The highlight of June was without a doubt the sale of AutoFun.com for $50,000 which sold at BIN. His other sales were names like ToothBar.com for $6,888, TinaChen.com for $1,988, GMTransport.com for $4,888, 40HZ.com for $2,888 and a .BIZ sale, ww.biz for $4,888.

One easy observation here that always makes me happy is the absolute dominance of two-word .COMs when it comes to good investments. As I’ve said many times, two-word .COMs are my personal favorite when it comes to low buy prices and high (relative) sale prices.

Congrats to Abdul, especially on AutoFun.com and thanks again for sharing your journey with all of us! 🙌 If you want to read more about Abdul’s June sales you can check out the full thread here on NamePros.

    Thank you so much Morgan for the shout out and you made my day more better 😀

    I totally agree with you as 2 words .com are the best investment and my primary focus is still on such type of domains. But as we all know that domains like AutoFun in the aftermarket are going really high.

    At this crucial time in the world, I believe private acquisitions is the best way to get some good deals.

      Thank you so much Bobby! 🙂
      Really much appreciated your kind words 🙂
      I feel very happy when I find my posts sharing is somehow beneficial for the domain community.
      I’ve learned a lot from fellow domain investors and just wants to give it back in whatever way I can.

      Best wishes 🙂
