What is digital real estate?

Everyone’s familiar with real estate investment. It’s as simple as buying a house or land to rent or sell for profit. Digital real estate works the same way. Every domain name, every website and every blog you see online is internet property. It’s digital real estate you can buy and sell just like those houses, apartments and lots.

In fact, there are people making a living buying and selling domain names and websites full time. Some domain names sell for millions of dollars, and websites often gets acquired for hundreds of millions of dollars. And yes, you can make money with digital real estate too.

DomainKing’s List of 33 Domain Name Sales. 1999-2019

Morning Folks!!This is what I would call an “Easy Reference Post” for me to refer back to or point others to when I need to access my prior domain sales. So please indulge me. It seems I never have a list that’s easy to find or to add on to. Now I do!The first sales (1998-2003) are mostly lower on the list and occurred when 5 and 6 figure sales were almost unheard of, and folks would laugh at me for even asking these prices. The laughter stopped when I started getting those prices and then completely silenced when I sold Men.com for $1.32 Million. One of the very earliest verifiable, 7 figure domain sales. Before to was just the rumored Business.com for $7.5 Million with murky details.

  • Men.com sold for $1.32 million in 2003, acquired for $15k in 1995. Plus earnings of about $350,000 during ownership
  • Candy.com $3.0 million + several million in Royalties + 12.55% Ownership currently valued at over $5 million+, acquired for about $100k in 2005. (Will end up being my biggest sale ever)
