Premium one word domain Sleeping.com sells for $502K
Sleeping.com a fantastic one word premium domain name sold earlier this year (reported on DNJournal) for just over 502K USD!
It has been interesting to watch how this incredible asset has been used since that time. Sleeping.com currently is used as a pointer to Cpap.com a site dedicated to solutions to sleep problems. It makes perfect sense...sleeping problems require solutions, and those that take the time to enter sleeping.com into a browser address bar are already qualified as those that have a strong interest in sleep and sleep issues....ALL these visitors have now become possible clients for Cpap.com forever! That is powerful! These visitors will not be distracted by any other company, any other marketing message, any other online ad....forever....they type "sleeping.com" into the address bar and instantly they are forwarded to a company that has solutions for them! This is a huge competitive advantage for Cpap.com over competitors.....and we have not even started to look at the marketing potential of this exact match premium domain name yet in anyway!
Again we are reminded of the value attached to short premium domain name assets, one word premium domain names, and super easy to remember domains!
Just over half a million US dollars is a fantastic valuation!
Sleeping.com immediately implies that the organization that owns it is a global player, a savvy technical leader, an established expert in their field....all without saying one single word! That is an incredible advantage over all competitors!
Premium domain names immediately set your organization apart from the crowded masses online.
That is the power of a premium domain name asset!
The future belongs to those that recognize this power, and those that see these benefits! Those that understand that these premium domains will likely become the most critical, most valuable digital assets any organization will ever own!
Congratulations to both buyer and, seller!
What is my domain worth?
Premium domain name assets can be extremely valuable! We know that many may now be wondering what their domain name may be worth?
Here are a couple of online tools to play with … although they are not truly accurate valuations as each domain name asset is unique, they do give you a starting point as to what your domain name “may” be worth, a kind of “estimate” based on certain data points, historical similar asset sales records, search volume, cost per click for the term, letter character makeup / position / popularity and combinations etc… Yes this works for both dot com and dot ca domain names as well!
Who knows maybe you own a fantastic domain name asset that could be on this list someday 🙂

Premium domain name assets can literally be worth any amount really, as every single domain name is unique.
The vast majority of domain names registered are really worth no more than their registration fee, and often times not even that sorry to say (what the domain would be worth to someone else other than the current owner that is)….however it is common place now for many premium + sought after domains to sell in the range of $5K to $50K….and among those there are so called category killers, EMDs (exact match domains), some one word domains, very short domains, and brandables which can sell well over $100K! All these figures are USD by the way as the resale market tends to report in USD. The premium domain name asset sector can be an increasingly exciting space, and for some it can be very profitable as well!
