Hello, happy Saturday, and welcome to Morgan’s Flippa Five. This week I saw a .ONLINE domain hit Flippa.com as a featured listing. It will be interesting to watch what happens here but I think it’s insanely early to resell new gTLDs however if you’re buying you could end-up nabbing one of these for even less than reg fee.
As usual, my focus is .COM however I have also included a .IO domain that I think really stands out and could have solid resale potential depending on how much you can get it for. Onward to five domains I have hand-picked from Flippa that I think are worth taking a look at.
JVD.com – only 19 hours to go and at under $15,000 it is still far below what I think it will sell for. There aren’t any new three character domains being released, this is it, and from where I’m sitting it looks like these are going nowhere but up.
FX.io – it’s rare that .IO names make this list but a two-character name like this in a TLD that is often a close second next to .COM is hard to overlook. Just remember, since .io is still a relatively unproven extension this is a risk, and without a doubt a domain you should plan to hold for five years or more to see a good return.
Feel.com – while this auction starts at $100,000 I can tell you that Feel.com is worth significantly more than that. There’s no telling what the reserve could be but this name absolutely has resale value in the mid-to-high six-figure range based on previous similar sales.
JFL.com – what I really like about this auction is that you don’t just get JFL.com, you also get JFL.net and .org which is about as good as it gets when you’re buying a three character .COM. Like JVD.com they aren’t releasing more of these and there are a lot less of these names than four character .COMs.
Foxo.com – starting to see a trend here? Yes, I do think now is a great time for investors to focus on short .COM domains, I see these as the names with the greatest resale potential over the next 3-5 years. While I’d much rather have Fox.com, Foxo.com is an interesting brand, and it’s short, easy-to-remember, and a whole lot cheaper than a meaningful three letter .COM like Fox.
