just sold for $2M – here’s how

It’s funny because sometimes I hear people say things like, “are people still buying and selling domain names?” To which I’d love to respond, “No, that ship has sailed” since that would mean less investors to compete over names with, but I can’t say that, and instead I have to tell the truth, the domain name world is at the top of it’s game, and IMHO it’s only getting hotter.


So it should come as no surprise that just sold for $2M, and the guy who sold it, Ali Zandi, made a name for himself selling domains on Flippa, lives in Hawaii, and has a super-cool beard that I wish I could grow but I know I can’t.

This week Michael Cyger from sat down with Ali to talk about the sale and I think it’s definitely worth a listen. Whether you’re a startup founder or a domain name investor, this is an interview you can’t miss.

    Congrads on your sale Ali, and I do agree that the domain names are even getting more valuable. I don’t think the downward trajectory has been properly calculated for TV and radio mediums. Millennials and most of the under 30 don’t watch as much TV, won’t pay for it, don’t listen to radio and forget about print. If you want to get in front of them, a memorable domain name is the only way to go.
