In this week's Top Topics, we look at OpenSea's reported recent acquisition of OpenSea.com and we see why Dana White had big regrets before eventually acquiring UFC.com. Elsewhere, a seven-figure domain sale is received and an investor is looking for advice on their 2022 strategy.


Dana White Bought UFC.com for $50,000 to $75,000

Dana White has been an instrumental part of UFC, the Ultimate Fighting Championship, since 2001 after a $2 million takeover of the fledgling brand. Since then, UFC has become a multi-billion dollar brand but at one point in time, White wouldn't pay $15,000 to acquire UFC.com.

In an interview that was shared this week, Dana White reveals that he ultimately paid between $50,000 and $75,000 to buy UFC.com. He admits that not paying $15,000 for the domain originally was one of his mistakes in business. The interview in its entirety can be seen in this discussion.

Looks Like OpenSea Bought OpenSea.com

This year has been a breakout year for NFTs. Non-fungible tokens have made headlines around the world as more interest is focused on the world of these digital assets. Marketplace OpenSea has been one of the companies at the heart of the NFT craze as the largest active trading platform.

OpenSea has been operating on OpenSea.io since it launched in 2017 but it looks like the company recently acquired OpenSea.com after the domain moved registrars and started forwarding to OpenSea.io.

My Highest Ever CPC

Despite domain parking revenue falling in recent years, some investors still make good money from the advertisements displayed on their parked domains. One investor has shared a healthy income made from just one visitor's click.

The domainer revealed that despite routinely receiving $10 to $20 revenue from a single click, they were surprised to see a click that earned in excess of $100. What kind of advert, for a domain in the business niche, would generate revenue from one click in excess of $100?

Place.com Acquired for $3 Million

A real estate technology platform raised its first funding round after launching almost three years ago. The Washington-based company named Place raised $100 million of Series A funding in a deal that valued the company at an impressive $1 billion.

Notably, the company operates on Place.com and it was revealed this week that the company has paid $3 million to acquire the domain. WHOIS shows that the name is currently registered to Escrow.com, suggesting that the company is paying for the domain over an extended period of time.

Rearranging My Portfolio for 2022

The domain name industry has changed rapidly in the past few years. While much of the industry may seem the same, new developments, sales, and trends have reshaped the landscape. The ever-evolving domaining ecosystem can make planning and strategizing difficult.

Here, an investor is looking for advice as they prepare a strategy for 2022. Should an investor's portfolio have a lower percentage of .com domains thanks to the seeming popularity of some ccTLDs? Are there any upcoming trends that should be investigated now in order for investors to take advantage of next year?
