Founded in 2002 by Thunayan Al-Ghanim, Future Media Architects (FMA) has amassed a portfolio spanning thousands of premium domain names. Historically, FMA has been known to rarely sell their domains. However, since transferring over 100,000 domain names to Uniregistry in 2014, the company has sold many one-word names such as Impact.com, with Uniregistry brokers reportedly managing inquiries for the names in FMA’s portfolio. Thanks to DomainIQ, we were able to take a look through the FMA portfolio and pick out ten of our favorite names. Do you agree with our picks? It’s certainly hard to choose just ten names from such an impressive portfolio. Media.com One of the oldest domains in the FMA portfolio also happens to be one of the best. Media.com has been owned by FMA since at least 2003, the oldest WHOIS record available. Archival copies of the domain show the name was used by Multimedia Learning Inc in the late 1990s, then switching to a company called AlignMark. As a generic domain, it has an abundance of potential uses. NameBio lists over two thousand sales that contain the word “media”, with the largest being eMedia.com for $60,000 in 2011. MR.com The first of three two-letter .COM domains in our list is MR.com. As a standalone domain regardless of potential meaning, it would likely attract a lot of attention from investors from China thanks to the letter combination. As Jamie Zoch (@Yofie) noted, GoDaddy sold the similar domain KR.com to China, suggesting that the KR.com name may have sold for seven figures. The meaning, however, should increase the value. In English, the “Mr” abbreviation is a commonplace substitute for “mister”. Plenty of brands use the “Mr” abbreviation including YouTube influencer MrBeast, popular mortgage lender Mr. Cooper and fashion brand Mr. Porter. FM.com The two-letter .COM domains owned by Future Media Architects have meaning and value beyond simply being a rare two-letter domain. FM.com, for example, is a desirable two-letter “Chinese premium” domain name but also has obvious connotations with the music industry. FM broadcasting is synonymous with music radio stations, with music orientated services such as Last.fm using the .FM domain extension. AI.com Two-letter .COM domain names have a wholesale price in the six-figure range, with many more selling for seven figures. This domain name is a surefire seven or eight-figure name. “AI” is the common abbreviation for Artificial Intelligence, a booming industry. According to Statista, AI as an industry is currently worth $7.34 billion in the US, with expected growth to $89.84 billion by 2025. A two-letter .COM domain that perfectly describes an entire industry is certainly a prized asset. Cool.com What is the coolest domain name in your portfolio? I think you’d struggle to top Cool.com! Once called the “most valuable domain” by ZDNet, Cool.com has been a desirable domain ever since it was registered in 1995. The original owner allegedly received many offers including a seven-figure offer that was documented in ZDNet’s article. Future Media Architects have owned the domain name since at least 2008, when DomainIQ’s first ownership record for the domain was archived. Currently, the name redirects to a Twitter account. July.com Month domain names are rare assets that also make great brand names. August, for example, is a smart security company that acquired the domain name August.com. Domain investor Aron Meystedt (@Napkin.com) owns March.com, a blockchain corporation. i.net There are just two single-letter .NET domain names in existence, q.net and i.net, both owned by investors. We have no publicly disclosed data as to how much a single-letter .NET domain may be worth, but a single letter .ORG domain sold in 2018 for $500,000, indicating that these are firm six or seven-figure assets. Jog.com Future Media Architects owns a substantial amount of short domains, but the only three-letter .COM domain name in our list is Jog.com. This name is one of our favorites from the FMA portfolio because it is a common three-letter word in a lucrative industry, fitness. According to reports from Statista, the fitness industry in the United States has a revenue of $3.4 billion in 2018, with jogging being one of the most popular fitness activities. Jog would make a phenomenal brand name in the industry. Party.com This common one-word domain has made our list because of its versatility across a number of industries. With a market value of $5 billion, the party rental industry would be an obvious fit for Party.com. Beyond that, the domain would be at home in the political, music and fashion industries. LinkedIn lists over 65,000 company results for the word “party”, signaling that this is a common commercial term. Research.com The final name on our list is Research.com. This may not be an obvious choice given the number of other ultra-premium domains in the FMA portfolio, but research is one of the most powerful things that we can do. Research, across various industries, improves lives and improves minds. Companies such as IBM, Intel, and Apple own research labs, spending substantial amounts of money on developing new technology. -- What is your favorite name from this list?
