There aren’t many domain names that get appraised at $498,000 by Valuate.com that expire.
But what’s really surprising, is that one company not only allowed VideoEditing.com (appraised at nearly 500K) to expire, but they also allowed another great domain name to expire: ComputerAnimation.com.
These two domains bring the total to over half a million dollars in dropped names. And chances are, if these two domains are expiring, you’ll be seeing others from the same company: A New Light Productions, Inc. based in Asheville, NC.
A New Light Productions, overlooks renewals
According the company’s profile: “A New Light Productions Inc is a private company categorized under and located in Asheville, NC. Our records show it was established in 1986* and incorporated in North Carolina*. Current estimates show this company has an annual revenue of $500,000 to $1 million and employs a staff of approximately 1 to 4.”
They did business on VideoEditing.com which expired on March 27, 2010 and now heads to auction at NameJet.
It’s insane to let these names go. But the amount of great domains that are dropping appear to be on the rise, either through mistakes or just plain lack of interest.
