This is an opportunity to capitalize on the next generation of the internet where consumers start thinking about the “right of the dot” as part of the brand.
PANAMA CITY, PANAMA (PRWEB) October 04, 2013
DNX, domain name exchange, a joint venture between InternetMedia and Media Options, is offering for the first time ever, what could be considered the premier portfolio of “domain hacks”. Comprised of over 500 domains, this incredible portfolio contains the likes of Cruis.es, VideoGam.es, and many more high quality and rare brand opportunities of this caliber; and the best part? They are being sold off at well below the fair market values! All domains are priced for immediate sale and auctions will begin on Monday, October 7th, 2013. The auctions will be staggered so that not all are starting or ending on the same days.
This is an opportunity to capitalize on the next generation of the internet where consumers start thinking about the “right of the dot” as part of the brand. With a flood of new gTLD’s coming out, it will become increasingly more common to incorporate the domain extension into the brand or domain name; example: Car.Insurance as opposed to CarInsurance.com. Domain hacks are one of those internet niches that savvy domain investors have been profiting from for years.
While domain hacks are surely going to capitalize on the next generation TLDs, it’s a lesser known fact that they have already been in the news. Delicio.us went on to an undisclosed 8 figure buyout by Yahoo. Instagr.am, later changed to instagram.com, went for a cool 1 billion to Facebook. There have also been numerous ‘smaller’ sales over the years, to name a few:
- LOCAL.LY sold to Infor for $100,000
- E.CO sold to Domain Capital for $81,000
- T.AG sold to Kinetic Fin for $60,000
- SOCI.AL sold for $50,000
- INSTANT.LY sold to Webtigo for $32,000
- FAMO.US sold to Famous Industries, Inc. for $25,000
- MA.DE sold to surefive for $25,000
- REP.LY sold to Social Media Ltd. for $22,050
- WHI.CH sold to Which.co.uk for $21,840
- ANSWE.RS sold to Answers.com for $20,000
- LOVE.LY sold to Quotidian Ventures for $20,000
- DAI.LY sold to Dailymotion for $17,000
- FIR.ST sold to SocialFlow for $15,000

According to Andrew Rosener, Media Options CEO who is considered a leading expert on domain name valuation, “We expect the value of domain hacks & similar type brands to only go up in the future. One of the biggest barriers to their adoption is that the domain space has for so long been dominated by .com. While we don’t expect the .com dominance to change anytime soon, ICANN is soon releasing an infinite number of new extensions. For the next generation, you’re going to see people who are ready to accept new brands and creative combination of extensions. It’s going to be like 1996 all over again for those who missed the original .com rush.”
Regarding the upcoming domain auction at DNX, Christopher Crowther CEO of InternetMedia says, “You’re going to be shocked at the value available for these domains. The seller is raising money and wants the whole portfolio to go. These domains are priced to sell.”
