The expired domain market ebbs and flows and well, this is one of those weeks where there are some really hot names expiring and up for auction on Park.io, and no shortage of buyers bidding on them. What also makes this week pretty interesting is that a .US domain is seeing a lot of bidding activity and for good reason, blog.us expired. While I’m not personally a huge fan of .US from an investment perspective, this is definitely one of the best .US names out there and it’s now over $2,000 with less than 14 hours to go.
When I look at domains on Park.io I tend to focus on .IO and .CO and this week is a pretty smoking week for those as well with jerk.io and pumpkin.co coming up soon followed by one of the strongest .CO names I’ve seen in a while, Voyager.co which is already over $3,000 with more than two days left to go.
One reflection I’ve had these days is how much the floor price for names in these extension has risen over the last few years. When I first started bidding on .IO and .CO names, it was pretty easy to get a premium name for under $500, now getting one for under $5,000 is getting pretty tricky.
But like the title of my post said, it’s the .CO names this week that really caught my eye 🤩 Looking at a name like Voyager.co, I wouldn’t be surprised if this ends up selling in the $7k – $10k range, and right after it, Grammar.co will sell, probably not for quite as much but I wouldn’t be surprised to see it hit $5k or higher. Someone with a strong .CO portfolio seems to have either forgotten to renew their names or this just happens to be a week with some great .CO names hitting the auction block.
Some other notable names that caught my eye are Cardboard.co, Damage.co, Inquiry.co, Extension.co, Cleaners.co, and Dreaming.co. Phew – like I said in the title of this post, there are some really stellar .CO names expiring this week. Best of luck to the bidders, I’ll be interested to see what prices these end up going for!
