    In this week's Top Topics, we have a number of featured discussions relating to sales and potential sales of domain names. First, we have the news of a $9,000 .TV sale that took place on the Afternic platform, then a domain investor reveals a recently rejected $95,000 offer to purchase their whole portfolio.


    NamesCon Meetup 2019

    The domain industry's most popular global event, NamesCon, is just weeks away. Taking place in Las Vegas for the final time, the conference is an opportune time to network. GoDaddy's Joe Styler published details of a domainer meetup at NamesCon.

    The meetup will take place on Sunday, January 27th at 5pm at the "9 Fine Irishmen" bar across the street from the Tropicana Hotel, NamesCon's venue.

    I Sold Square.tv for $9,000

    The $9,000 sale of Square.tv was announced this week by a domain investor who sold the name through Afternic. According to this discussion, the domain was sold at the "Buy Now" price of $9,000.

    As of writing, the WHOIS for the domain shows that it is pending transfer, but the nameserver shows that this is potentially a CSC client. CSC is a corporate domain management service, reportedly looking after 90% of domains owned by Fortune 500 companies.

    How Much Would You Sell A Portfolio For?

    There have been individual reports of portfolio sales in the past. Mike Berkens, for example, sold his portfolio to GoDaddy's NameFind for a reported $35 million. Recently an investor posted a question asking the community how much they'd expect to receive for a portfolio consisting of one thousand typical domain names.

    The question has resulted in a lengthy debate on the numerous considerations you'd have to plan for, should you ever sell your entire portfolio.

    An Offer to Purchase My Portfolio

    Following on from the discussion above, domain investor @JudgeMind published another discussion, this time informing the community that he had a $95,000 offer to acquire his portfolio consisting of 1,433 domain names.

    The offer was rejected, but the investor goes into some detail about the thought process behind considering the offer and subsequently rejecting it.
