It's amazing. I have no idea why this is costing so much. I can only believe it's an end user at this point

Likely. It would be hard to justify the price otherwise. It certainly isn't a wholesale price. But it's a one-word domain with scientific connotations, and quite flexible at that, "accelerate your performance," and whatnot.

So it'll probably go through the till at $100 or something ridiculous.

When I stopped watching the auction it was at $145K and still going. I do not know what price it finished at.

Interestingly, today's domain sale report (for yesterday's sales) here on the forum did not include that sale and it is not yet added to Namebio... so I wonder whassup.

This is a fantastic name. Business/startup accelerators are huge markets. Also a stellar name for automotive of any kind, especially racing and performance.

This could easily have been bought by an end user, in which case they got it for an extremely good end user price. This is also a reasonable reseller price - resellers are commonly paying in the low xxx,xxx range for such good names. If bought by a reseller, it is conceivably a high $xxx,xxx name to an end user, even into the low $millions.

We'll know in a few days who got it... whether it is renewed by previous/present owner, or it goes to an investor or end user. It did not seem to follow the usual pattern of the rollback cheaters so I think it was legit bidding.

I quite fancied buying a domain when the right one came along but I just can't trust Godaddy's system to know I'm not just getting shill bidded.

@Bannen Elliot Silver tweeted (or X-ed) that the auction for Accelerator.com was cancelled and reached out to Godaddy for a comment. We'll have to wait and see what they'll say.

@MKA I saw now on Twitter that Elliott was told that the auction is valid and awaiting payment. I'm just happy I'm not participating at Godaddy Auctions. Too many weird things tend to happen there...

Maybe one of the popular bitcoin transaction accelarators bought the domain. Maybe some medical equipment manufacturing company. Lets see untill DNS changes,

BTW, was it a expired auction or member auction?

Intuitively I'd say you're on the right track, but it's interesting to compare the two because it's not as clear-cut as one might think.

accelerator.com was registered in 1996-07-11.
accelerate.com was registered in 1997-05-20.

accelerator is registered in 192 TLD:s with 15,073 keyword-matches across SLD:s and TLD:s.
accelerate is registered in 227 TLD:s with 10,815 keyword-matches across SLD:s and TLD:s.

I think you'd be hard-pressed to argue that accelerator.com is more valuable than accelerate.com. After all, we're comparing a root word with a derivational affix, not to mention that accelerate is a four-syllable word while accelerator is a five-syllable word.

But because of what's listed earlier I am under the impression that I'm missing something here.

If you asked me if an appraisal a week ago, and I knew nothing of these domains I would've said that accelerate.com is worth around worth low-mid six-figures, and accelerator.com is worth mid five-figures (and that's only because the Large Hadron Collider and the branding potential).

I'm pretty sure that 'accelerator' is associated with growing businesses and business investment. That's a good area.

Accelerate.com is worth more. Very nice name.

I don't know, I just like accelerator.

That I'd agree with, "something that accelerates (things)" is the generic reading, and it's great for branding purposes.

Personally I'd have a hard time justifying six-figures for it though. Then again, I'm not an end-user.

How can you so confidently argue with someone who has been on nP since 2004 😅

Despite that, I don't think it's worth 150k for retail price... because then you'd have to sell it to a company for at least 200k (given broker fees)....

Seems like not something anyone would risk besides a millionaire.

But HEY GUESS WHAT. those real estate fans on here want us to buy A SINGLE HOUSE for over 200k in hopes that it will sell for... 250k in like 4 years.... so maybe it's not so cray?🥲
