SocialApp.com sold for $25,000 – Was the price too high? (plus the top 100 *app.com domain sales)

Yesterday the domain name SocialApp.com sold for $25,000 at GoDaddy auctions and that is an all time record price for a *app.com domain name. (together with wapp.com that also sold for $25k last year)

Of course we will have to wait a few days before this sale is final and learn who the winning bidder was as the current owner can renew the domain or transfer the domain out a week after the auction ends. (GoDaddy will fix this issue. Read more here and here.)

Was $25,000 too much for this domain? If it is an end-user that bought it then the price might be right. But for a domain name investor it may be too expensive. It is the highest reported *app.com domain name sale after all.

History shows that cloudapp.com sold for $24,000 at GoDaddy in 2012 and next year the buyer got a big hit as the name sold at a Namejet auction for just $12,600.

BTW the owner of SocialApps.com is looking for 6-figure offers:

  1. Cloudapp.com is now owned by Microsoft.

    And, yes, I agree. These godaddy auction prices are crazy again. Beyond investor prices.

  2. 25 K for SocialApp.com is a good price for an end-user. Not sure about an investor.

    CloudApp.com is a great one.

    These app domains, for categories, would seem to be the most valuable.

    OfficeApp.com
    EnterpriseApp.com
    BizApp.com
    WalletApp.com
    CryptoApp.com
    CoinApp.com
    GameApp.com
    NewsApp.com
    MediaApp.com
    EducationApp.com
    FunApp.com
    LifestyleApp.com
    BankApp.com
    MoneyApp.com
    ChatApp.com

  3. If these are end users, this is great news, and validation, if they are domains, they are most likely F’ed, but it takes two to get these bids this high, so somebody is pushing, we are coming off gradient unafraid, and now socialapp

    I can’t remember who won CloudApp back in the godaddy auction somehow Anut Patel got a hold of it, and sold for a loss, I think to Tony the dentist, just to many domains to remember.

  4. Yup…i bought cloudapp for $24k at godaddy auction to resell it to Microsoft since they owned cloudapp.net which had lots of traffic …but they never responded back…so i resold it for a huge loss.

  5. Make your offer.

  6. K. Zournas, I think I have a domain that you would want. I wouldn’t post it on here.

  7. I sold around 75 “*App.com” over the last four years. The majority of them were $1k+. I didn’t sell a single one for loss but I’m not active buying them anymore and reducing the prices of my current stock because their sales slowed down in 2017. I also sold many “*Apps.com” and other App related domains.

    These are my top 15 “*App.com” sales:

    Nov-08-2016 TeacherApp.com $6,499
    Jul-18-2014 NearbyApp.com $6,499
    Nov-26-2015 WealthApp.com $4,999
    Dec-30-2015 BuildYourApp.com $4,999
    Sep-12-2014 CareApp.com $4,499
    Jul-01-2015 BrilliantApp.com $4,499
    May-13-2015 PassApp.com $4,000
    Dec-16-2015 PurpleApp.com $3,999
    May-02-2014 BlackApp.com $3,999
    May-06-2015 FlipApp.com $3,499
    Oct-20-2015 WantApp.com $3,499
    Mar-07-2016 TastyApp.com $3,499
    May-10-2015 OpinionsApp.com $2,999
    Feb-21-2016 OxygenApp.com $2,999
    Sep-22-2016 MeditationApp.com $2,999

  8. Yes, nice sales, Sameh.

    I believe CareApp.com is the best one on your list. With the right end user, you probably could have gotten a 5 figure deal. But some excellent sales there – congrats.

    I see Michael Mann’s company owns OfficeApp.com and it’s for sale a bit over 90 K. Office, Work, Biz, Enterprise (app.com) could fetch high prices with the right end user(s).

    Healthapp.com like Careapp.com also would be a great one.

  9. I think it was rightly priced if not less.
    Considering the industry that it caters to, and the amount of credibility that the name will bring to whatever organization is going to use it and the way they can utilize it, $25k is okay if not less.

  10. I have a few lesser ones:

    DiningApp.com
    DiningApps.com
    InvisibleApps.com
    MultimediaApp.com
    TaskManagerApp.com
    OnlineBankingApp.com
