Thursday, March 14, 2013 a Hit in March 13 .ca domain TBR drop

This week there were a total of 188 .ca domains caught in the TBR (to be released) drop.  Included in that number were a few nice domains which I'll single out below.

But before I get to that, there were three 5 figure .ca domain sales that took place over the last week.  One of them made it into the weekly sales report, but the other two didn't make the March 10 cutoff, so will be in next week's report.

The one sale that did show up in DNJournal's report was a short three letter domain: - sold for $10,119 at

The sale made it to #18 on the overall extensions list, and #8 for country code domains.  This domain looks to have been bought by Insurance Supermarket Inc (ISI), and currently forwards to their website at  I'd say that's a nice upgrade to a shorter domain, and one without a hyphen.  Which domain would you find easier to remember if you were doing business with them?  Also, if you worked at this company, wouldn't you prefer for your company email, rather than having to type every time?  - sold for $20,000 to $50,000 range at

Hopefully by next week we'll know the actual closing price, because the DNS sales listings just shows a price range.  This domain currently forwards to, who I assume was the buyer.  Another good example of a domain sale that makes a lot of sense to the buyer.

f*  - sold for $30,000 at Sedo (* = u)

This was an interesting sale, and I'm sure most people have seen the .com version of this domain in the news, or somewhere.  An adult play on the popular 'Facebook' term.  There is already an adult dating site up on the domain, targeted to Canadians.

Onto the March 13 TBR now, there were a few domains that dropped that are worth noting, such as:

I put a bid in for at a few registrars, but none of them got it.  The other one I considered going for was  The full list of TBR results is below.  Thanks to Sibername for providing the info.

Apps Domains are Hot in 2013

A few days ago a post came out at about five number .com's ( getting hot.  I remember a few years ago there was a flurry of posts at about the fact that almost all were getting registered.  More and more were getting taken every day, and they did eventually sell out, though they still commonly show up on drop lists.  I own some myself, but have never had an offer on one.  They do get light traffic though, and I think they make sense as an investment because numbers are universal, and, and are getting harder to come by and too pricey for some.  You might have to hold a while, and be careful in the numbers you choose, but over time the demand should grow.

I don't have a large enough portfolio to notice every trend that comes along, but I do have a number of 'Apps' domains.  When I look back over the first couple months of 2013, and starting in 2012, I do notice that many of the domains I've had interest in or offers on, are Apps domains.

Almost everyone who has a smartphone or tablet uses apps these days.  There are almost an unlimited number of apps to choose from at the App Store or Google Play.  When you figure that smartphone and tablet use is projected to have huge growth, the number and use of apps will most certainly increase in the same manner, and across all cultures and languages.

Apps on mobile devices are a relatively new product category, and every single app has its own name.  Many app operators like to have a domain name that goes directly to their app download.  Websites have sprung up that deal with categories of apps, like game apps or free apps, and these sites need a domain too.

The inquiries I've had for some of my apps domains have come from different countries, including the USA, Canada, France, Germany, India, Brazil and Spain.  Some examples of Apps domains I've had interest in, from one or more parties, include ones like:  ('free applications' in Portuguese)  ('free apps' in Spanish)

One example of a sale I had a couple years ago involved a group of french .com's that basically meant 'free app' or 'free apps' in french.  The sale was in the $x,xxx amount.

What about you?  If you have apps domains, have you been getting more interest in them over the past year?  Feel free to post your apps domains in the comments.

Wednesday, March 6, 2013 in March 6 .ca domain TBR drop

The March 6 .ca TBR drop featured a low number of caught domains this week, compared to recent weeks where over 200 names were taken.  In total, 132 .ca domains were grabbed in the drop.

In the weekly domain sales report that came out today, there was one .ca domain sale listed in the country code section.  It was the 5th highest country code domain sale of the week.  That domain was:  -  $8,475   - sold by

This is the second solid domain sale reported by in two weeks.  Last week they sold for just over $39,000. is still resolving to a parked page, and I couldn't find any info on the new owner.  Perhaps it was bought by an airline business, or a company involved in clean air.  For those who aren't aware, CDN is a common abbreviation for Canada.

A few of the nicer domains that were grabbed today in the drop were:  -  London Ontario has a population close to 400,000  -  a nice 'i' domain  -  name of my and other local newspapers  -  payment system in the news a lot lately  -  every home has one  -  popular in the summer  -  Las Vegas real estate is moving up again  -  see above for London  -  what everyone wants

The full list of domains taken in the TBR is below.  I've bolded some of the better quality and more interesting names.  Thanks to Sibername for providing the info.
