    The new weekly domain sales report is out at DNJournal.com. The past week's domain sales activity was concentrated in the mid-range of the market with variety replacing high end sales in the spotlight on our latest all extension Top 20 Sales Chart. The 13 .coms on the leader board, including a $50,000 chart topper, were joined by four ccTLD sales and three non .com gTLDs (two of which were new gTLDs). The top sale in the latter group was also the highest sale reported in that category so far in the new year.You can get all of the details here: https://www.dnjournal.com/archive/domainsales/2019/20190306.htm

    Lads.com for $26k is a great deal. I’d consider buying that right now.

    Lads.com was listed for sale for many, many years. At least a decade. The buyer also bought lads.co.uk privately. The ultimate reason for purchase may actually be because it’s an acronym, rather than because of any dictionary definition.

    I dropped LADS.tv in January.
    Looking back, perhaps that was a slight error of judgment!

    Lad(s) is a hugely popular word in the UK.

    Yes. Online I consider any developer would always be up against the perceived gay slant unless that slant contributed to the actual intention to make use of the domain name. It might also still be a bit generic as a single word.

    FYI the buyer of both is British. Good luck to them if they’re actually going to be using both domain names for something besides as an acronym of a four word phrase relating to the industry they’re involved in. Both domain names look like they’ve been configured for email only at the moment.

    Got it.
    I disagree that "Lads" is perceived as a gay slant but understand your point.

    Lad Bible is huge and gets roughly 13 million visitors per month. "Lads" as a brand works really well in the UK.

    I’d heard of your example. However you are specifically referring to the word “lad” here, and when used to prefix another word.

    Could it be that the word “lads” (i.e. a plural) would more likely be used to suffix rather than prefix another word? If so that might make how it could be used in e-commerce or branding quite different. :)
