    Excellent price for this era. Some people still use DVDs, $10k is good price for this product in my opinion.

    It's a dying market - most people under a certain age have never used one.....but they are still selling and some might/probably will become collectables

    https://www.mentalfloss.com/article/624637/most-valuable-dvds

    Or they can sell 10,000 of them at a couple of dollars each......

    Plenty of info out there on collectable DVD's - could become an interesting (non domain) niche......

    I meant the original buyer who bought it at 300K.

    Its outdated. But the price of 10K is pretty nice because it can be "branded". And is already well known.
    Next thing we know LLLL.com may be worth 10K+ regardless of pronounceable or brandable or not. Because it becomes a "collector" item, and being RARE.

    For something to be "cool"...successful it has to be innovative and new. You have to find something new to make it work.

    I'm guessing you mean the $300k buyer? If instead you mean the new $10k buyer then only time will tell.

    For the $300k buyer, no they probably made a lot overall.

    Doing the math... over approximately 9 years the $300k buyer had an active website, they would have to have made only about $92/day to payoff their investment. Based on the amount of traffic they likely received over that 9 years, I'd say they averaged way way more than $92/day especially in the early years.

    $300,000/(365*9 years) = $91.33/day

    This of course is a wild guess, but in this case I feel confident that they made their investment back pretty quickly and then any income generated would be profit minus maintenance costs.

    Most websites don't earn even $1 per day. $92/day is too high for 99.99% of the websites IMO.

    That's very true because most people don't know how to make more than $1/day online.

    In this case, the website was obviously receiving lots of traffic and it appears to have been monetizing that traffic.

    During the same period for example, I owned a website that usually generated over $1k/day in affiliate sales with probably far less traffic. So at the time, it wasn't that difficult to do.

    Unfortunately, generating sales this way today isn't as easy :(
