    It will be interesting to see what becomes of the domain name... parting is such sweet sorrow.

    You can buy 3 3L.com’s, and a dozen 4L.com’s based on that sale, at that price you should have no regrets.

    People have sold much better names, for much less.

    I totally agree... no one was more surprised by all this than me.

    Many thanks to the BrandBucket team for making this happen!

    Congratulations on your super sale! Any idea about the buyer? I can see that name is taken into many extensions. Has any of these went for an upgrade?

    I was tested on numerous occasions...
    As I see it, there are a few possibilities...

    1. a company with the same name made an offer several years ago;

    2. the name is somewhat popular with online gaming and Pokeman;

    3. it's a great name that will appreciate over time... so, why not? :xf.smile:

    So happy for you - part of me feels like i sold the name, that's how happy i am for you :)

    That's the game isn't it - wait it out and fit the perfect fitting company.

    Let's dream a little and play a hypothetical - I don't know you story but lets assume you are willing to re-invest $50,000 of that, spend the other $22,000 on yourself :), what domains do you buy?

    Me:

    • Shop hard for a very good 3L.com for say $25,000
    • Look for another 5 to 7/8 CVCV 4L's for the other $25,000

    What would the rest of you guys do?

    Beauty of it all is that the name are so liquid, you could have your money back within 24 hours if needed back.

    Congrats again!

    Thank you much, Trader247, for your kind words and enthusiasm!

    There is a developer that created two games, Downwell and Nium.

    As for what's next, I think I will do some research and let gut instinct do its thing...

    I always had a feel for that domain name and I'll seek another with the same 'feel'.

    That's one possibility... they offered me a price about ten years ago.

    I don't think they even existed when I first acquired the domain name.

    Yes, this domain name certainly has that “feel” of being a great future brand so congrats on your excellent sale.

    It gave me quite a surprise because I happen to know that the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia acquired the similar domain Neom.com some time in the last two years, though that sale seems unlikely to be related to yours.

    Could be them, but for $90k, most likely someone new with a big idea. Most likely something in the works, what did I see the other day, some weight loss program using noom.com, that is spending a fortune on marketing.

    Agreed...it's unlikely the same company bought for 100+ times the initial offer.

    That said, what price would have been paid if this is indeed "a big new idea"?

    Again, it will be interesting to see how the domain name evolves in the future.

    I submitted five names total for approval... two accepted, three rejected.

    The remaining one is listed for 70K (which I think is a reasonable price).

    Great sale, congrats !!
    Looks like NiumInc // com is your buyer. The NIUM game has little to no results.
    Or like u said, maybe a new buyer with something else in mind.
