sold for $4,000 – did the buyer get a good deal?

This morning I saw a tweet about the sale of for $4,000 – my initial instinct was, that feels like a pretty solid deal, for an end-user.

The tweet mentions that it looks like the new owner is building out the site and I popped over to to take a look and saw a login screen for Skote, which is an admin Dashboard template.

I agree with Adam, this would make me think they are building it out, which means it’s likely an end-user that bought it and hence, as I said above, my take would be that they got a good deal.

There’s not a ton of sales data for two-word .NET domains with the word remote in it but here are handful I pulled from NameBio:

  • – $1,000
  • – $913
  • – $2,999

I personally don’t think any of these are as strong as especially given how hot the remote job space is right now. Also if you put yourself in the mind of a consumer, I think it’s safe to say more people are searching for “remote jobs” than for remote access, remote jobs, or universal remotes.

Of course, I couldn’t help but take a look at search volume for “remote jobs” and I was actually surprised to see that while it is up over the last year, it’s not the hockey stick growth I was expecting to see.

Still, my final verdict is that this is a solid price for an end-user, if it was a domain investor I would say they overpaid as there wouldn’t be much ROI potential. What do you think?

    It has sold at Sedo for $ 7,308. I really find it very low for Buyer to resell for over $ 25000.

    No way, he got a bad deal! For that much money, I am more than sure he could have found a better domain that is .COM. No one uses .net and I am pretty sure no one wants it.

    Not a great deal for an end user.
    If you are a serious end user thinking about 6 or 7 figure business, you should go find a dot com domain.
    I would never build a business on a .net

    He will be losing a good chunk of his traffic to (which redirects to On our web site, in the FAQ section, I address this. When we owned we had it leased to a Laguna Beach mortgage broker who used it to generate leads. One day she called me to say she had received 90 leads in the last 24 hours. I congratulated her, but it didn’t make sense because usually did less than ten leads a day. That evening I was watching the news and a commercial came on for –
    I would never build a business on anything except dotCOM.

    Why don’t you go back to the buyer 6mths from now and ask him/her what the traffic is like…
    Good deal for the seller but sucker for the buyer.
    Data does not lie!!

    Dot com is KING!!

    ** there should be a website that we can check how much traffic is going from the net to the dot com.**
