In my second case study update, when I referred to my development plans for Stocks.XYZ (landrush domain), I also told you guys that I got some general availability domains but since I wasn’t sure what my final list looked like (one of the domains went to auction), I decided to only write about them once I know the outcome of the auction.
The auction in question hasn’t ended yet but since the bidding reached a level that’s in excess of what I’m willing to pay for the domain, I’m out and can therefore share my final .xyz acquisition list.
I set up “domain for sale” landing pages on each domain and will be asking for $1,880 a pop. The terms on the left of the dot are very strong, so I think $1,880 is a reasonable end user price.
Here are the domains in alphabetical order:
9 domains which, together with Stocks.XYZ, bring my dot XYZ total to 10.
Dot XYZ has the lowest renewal fee out of all new gTLDs I’ve bought, so all in all, I’m quite happy with the “very strong term on the left of the dot + low renewal fee” combination.
At this point, I have 34 new gTLD domains (the 10 dot XYZ ones mentioned today and 24 other new gTLD domains).
I’ve set up “domain for sale” landing pages on 33 of them and will turn the other one (Stocks.XYZ) into a megasite (I own MegaSites.com, check out the video on the site if you’d like to see what megasites are all about).
This is the 4th update of my new gTLD study, be sure to also read the previous three when you get a chance to.
Here they are:
