    What is the basis for your feeling that is the value?
    $370,000 is the value given in NameBio (see link in article), as well as the value given by James in his NamePros report from the auction, and when Ron reported the NamesCon auction results in DNJournal he gave $370,000. That value is also consistent with my own personal notes from the night (James and I, and of course Ron Jackson, were all at the auction in person). I am happy to do a correction if there is any authoritative source indicating a different value, it just seems surprising so many would have independently got it wrong.

    I just went back to the video. You are correct 100%. I thought it was 500k but I was wrong.

    It is a good suggestion Gary, and I have added it to my list of ideas to analyze. I already have plans for the next number of weeks, but will try to do it sometime in first half of 2020. Thank you for idea, and best wishes for your domain name. Last month I personally added my first ever 3 word .com as well.

    Thanks Bob for this Article!

    I noticed that "again for sale" names were acquired mostly at Uniregistry (4), DropCatch(3), NameJet(1), Sedo(1).
    GoDaddy is absent in this list.

    I think it was good price for buyer (39,623 USD), I think it worth mid 6fig, which explains why it is for sale now.

    Great article thanks
    What are SEC filings and how can you find domain sales information from it/them?

    Public companies that are listed, or about to be listed, on a stock exchange are legally required to submit securities exchange documents that disclose, among other things, assets and changes in assets. These can include transactions including premium domain names and can be the first way we know if no announcement was made about the domain name. The master of digging out this information from securities exchange filings is @GeorgeK, and he shares what he finds in his blog, on NamePros, and on his Twitter feed. While in theory any of us could dig through filings, I am happy to leave that to others, but appreciate the great work they do.

    Great list thanks Bob. I have a lot of 2-word domains in my portfolio, so it’s good to see. 😉

    FYI CryptoInsurance.com is in there twice (# 11 and # 15) but they reference the same sale in NameBio?...

    Interesting List. The mention on the usage of the names gives it that extra punch. Thanks @Bob Hawkes for the awesome work.
