Morgan’s Flippa Five: Emerging.com, Lift.io, Automating.com

Hello, happy Monday, and welcome to Morgan’s Flippa Five. Flippa has been in the news a lot lately, from this recent article in the Washington Post to countless articles about what will probably go down as one of the most famous sales on the site – ShipYourEnemiesGlitter.com.

All of this media attention is without a doubt sending even more premium names to Flippa which makes my job of finding just five actually a whole lot harder. That being said, I’m a fan of short lists so I’m sticking with five, here are my top picks for this week.

Emerging.com – sometimes I’m on the fence about one word names ending in “ing” however in this case I like it. In fact I think it’s probably a stronger name than emerge.com but that’s just my opinion. Either way this is a meaningful and positive one-word .COM that everyone can remember and spell.

Automating.com – okay so this is one of those one word names ending in “ing” that I think is stronger without it. Yes, I think automate.com is a better name, but that’s not for sale on Flippa so I can’t say much about it. What I can tell you is that we are living in a world where more and more things are automated, heck we all carry what would be considered a super-computer ten years ago in our pocket. For a company that specializes in automation this is a nice one.

Lift.io – it’s been no secret that startups have been flocking to the .IO extension and this is a very solid one. The only concern I have is that it could be easily confused with Lyft, the ridesharing startup, however “lift” is a very generic word and there are lots of uses for this name particularly as an API.

Sell.org – I’m not a huge .ORG fan, I think I’ve said that about a million times now, still I have a thing for short, meaningful one word domains and this is about as good as it gets. Still I think .ORG is best suited for non-profits so if you’re looking to buy a domain you can sell for a huge profit this might not be the right fit. If you’re a non-profit looking to build on domain this could be a steal of a deal.

Cases.co – with so many smart devices it’s not surprising that case sales have gone through the roof. Cases are high-margin products that are easy to sell online and people often don’t need to see in-person. Cases.com definitely would cost a pretty penny but with the .CO you could get a store up and running in no time without the sticker shock.

    Interesting opinion domain name you give to know and to be on Flippa for investors.

    For my part I understand with good intentions you still entertains this market is normal after so many years, retiring at once is a bad dream being the “Domaining” who get become you.

    Forward friend, is your best way which you already know, but as a hobby can do post any niche, for my fantastic!

    I personally like org domains. However, I’ve seen Sell.org listed sooooo many times and the owner(s) never get what they are looking for. Are ORGs good in the aftermarket? Yes, but that word doesn’t fit the extension.
