    Amazing sales. Wondering possible prices of non-com extensions for the names.

    A quote (from @Kate Buckley in story) that I really like is the following:

    "Premium domains aren’t only lead generators but they are also brand enhancers and appreciating assets."

    After seeing the sales I thought I would look on NameBio to see how many big sales there have been in words ending in 'ing'. Here is the list (or at link)
    • gambling $2,500,000
    • investing $2,450,000
    • dating $1,750,000
    • flying $1,100,000
    • sleeping $502,225
    • snoring $502,225
    • housing $500,000
    • webhosting $500,000
    • wrestling $500,000
    (all are in .com except for webhosting which is a co.uk; ring would also be in list but don't regard it as a name ending in ing like others).

    I had a look for exact word 'sleeping' on Afternic in various extensions as of right now. Many (including the .net and .org that are both for sale) don't have prices, but some that do.
    .cn for $4999
    .io for $7777
    .tv for $25,000
    .la for $1500

    I also looked on Undeveloped where I found for exact word with prices
    .nu for 450 Euro
    .help for 1000 Euro

    I looked on Sedo and (maybe missed some - is there a way to do exact search only on Sedo?) but in addition to those listed above found exact word in
    .ch for 1490 Euro
    .fr for 2390 Euro
    .porn for $1299
    .eu for 999 Euro
    .ru for 1000 Euro
    co.in for $849
    co.za for $600
    .pics for $329
    (many other extensions offered without prices; also many nonexact single word with prices)

    I looked on ToughDomains but found no exact match there for sleeping.

    I also looked on Namecheap Marketplace where
    .website is $108
    (disclosure that last one is mine)

    Of course some of these prices may go up after today :xf.wink: !
