Hillsborough, NJ (PRWEB) May 11, 2010
After almost 13 years in business, the owners of the domain name BoardGames.com have decided to pass the baton. They have selected Moniker® (http://www.moniker.com) and SnapNames® (http://www.SnapNames.com), both Oversee.net® companies, to auction BoardGames.com at the DOMAINFest Ft. Lauderdale Live Auction on Thursday May 13 at The W Hotel in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. Auction details can be found at: http://www.moniker.com/DFauction.
The domain name is appealing to potential buyers due to the growth this segment is currently experiencing. According to CNNMoney.com, July 10, 2009 “Board Games Are Back” article, “in 2008, board game sales climbed 23.5% to about $808 million, and they're expected to grow more this year.” The growth enjoyed during the 2008 and 2009 economic downturn, further supports the recession-proof status of board games. Board games have long been identified as a recession-proof product due to their affordability and popularity as compared to other forms of entertainment.
Since 1998, the three partners of BoardGames.com have enjoyed double digit growth in revenue, attributable to the popularity of online shopping for durable consumer goods coupled with the consistent demand for board games.
BoardGames.com offers a wide range of “evergreen” games and products for all ages, including classics like Battleship, Mousetrap, and The Game of Life, specialty strategy game imports like Settlers of Catan, and award-winning educational games like Blokus. The purchaser of this domain name can choose to build out a new web site or continue to operate the existing web site at no additional charge.
BoardGames.com is a highly-relevant, keyword-rich domain name that yields valuable online visitor traffic, translating to less money spent on online ads to acquire search traffic and a more relevant experience for shoppers.
