I’ve never been a big numeric domain investor, but after taking a look at Go Daddy Auctions over the last few days, I kinda wish I was. A 5N .COM, 57200.com is expiring and currently at $2,552 with over two days to go which means it wouldn’t be all that surprising to see this domain cross the $5,000 mark.
My guess is that the previous owner of this domain has no idea that it was worth thousands of dollars, and they probably don’t know that it’s up for auction on Go Daddy right now. Like I said above, I’m not that plugged-into the numeric domain market but I thought it had cooled off quite a bit so I’m surprised to see so much activity.
Of course I think that some of my readers might be more plugged-into numeric domains so I’d love to hear more about why this particular name is seeing so much interest. There’s a couple other 5N .COM’s on Go Daddy Auctions as well like 00295.com but it’s only at ~$1,000 with less than two days to go.
Where I’m really confused is with 83108.com, which is only at $852 also with less than two days to go. Last I checked 8 was the best number you could have in a numeric domain so it feels like starting and ending with an 8 should mean that this name is worth quite a bit more than 57200.com, right?
Now is where I’m really interested in hearing from you, my reader, since I know quite a few of you know a lot more about numeric domains than I do. Why is 57200.com getting so much more interest than 83108.com? I want to hear from you, comment and let your voice be heard!
