If you’re like me, chances are you pore through DNJournal’s Weekly Domain Sales Chart that tracks the top 20 domain sales for the previous week, along with additional sales in country codes and other global contenders. While this week saw strong sales with JF.com for $101,000 leading the pack, there were several other interesting domain sales for the week of Dec. 20, 2010 – Sun. Dec. 26, 2010.
A sale that jumped out at me was a catchy group-buying domain, DayBuyDay.com, which sold for $10,000 at AfternicDLS.
Earlier this year as the group-buying craze really started taking off, names like DailyBargains.com were still selling at bargain prices. DailyBargains.com sold for just over $10,000 on Sedo in May. The trend in the last several months, following the lead of GroupOn, has been for companies to use catchy names to brand their group buying businesses.
Last month, uScoop.com sold for $7,000 and the website has since launched.
Day Buy Day
I dug a little deeper to see where this name was headed, and it turns out DayBuyDay is indeed another group-buying startup in the works.
A few weeks ago, the group behind DayBuyDay ran a logo contest on 48hourslogo and a winner was selected (pictured above). The company describes itself as new Shopping Club that offers Group Deals for much lower prices.
Expect to see another group-buying startup, among the hundreds if not thousands launched in 2011.
