DOMAINS.WINE announced to the world today they have opened their marketplace selling premium domains. Set up by Braden Pollock, the marketplace allows the wine industry to purchase DOT WINE and DOT VIN domain.
I had a look through the site and I'm sure some domains will be snapped up very quickly but it was the pricing that caught my eye.
Most are open to offers but ADS.WINE is priced at $3,000 as is WEDDING.WINE. I'm not a wine expert but as a domain investor, surely the wedding would fetch much more than its neighbour??
At the higher end of the scale CA.WINE is going for $35,000 and some name hacks such as CAL.VIN and KE.VIN are up for grabs at $26,000.
It's interesting to see the list and I'd love to know more on the pricing strategy.
Check out the full list on the link below.
55588.com dropped a few days ago and just sold at DropCatch.com for $91,060. The previous owner must be kicking themselves for letting this one slip.
56 bidders were in on the action placing 571 bids. A quick $10 renewal then put it up for auction and the (previous) owner would have had a nice pay day.
A good reminder to keep on top of your domains.
