Do a 380 : James Booth performs a pair of major #domain transactions

James Booth, celebrating the sale of 380.com.

Domain broker, James Booth, lives currently Down Under; the British expat and founder of BDQN.com likes to work hard and party hard.

Skydiving is risky, especially when there are two major domain transactions to be completed. Still, James Booth pulled everything off nicely, including the tandem jump.

So what are the two major transactions James was recently involved in?

First, he assisted with the acquisition of the ultra-premium two letter domain, DO.com by Media Options. Drew Rosener would not disclose the price, but it might be in the seven figure range.

Second, James Booth brokered 380.com on behalf of its owner, for $320,000 dollars. The numeric NNN .com was most likely sold to the Chinese.

According to historic WHOIS from DomainTools, 380.com has been a domain asset of Luxembourg-based Xedoc Holding SA. There are no other records of a sale, and the domain has remained under WHOIS privacy since 2009.

Congratulations to James Booth, and to Drew Rosener for bringing exciting news to the domain industry.

    Where was the sale of 380.com first reported? This is the first time I’m reading it.

    In 2016, received a few bids upwards of $320k. The highest being a $600k bid by bidder Demand followed by Yiming > Kukku > NJHighBid > Easily. The reserve wasn’t met; set at ‘greater than $750k’

    NameJet has since removed historic bidding logs from public auction links, but you can still review the 2016 NameJet auction including a summarized bid log via http://web.archive.org/web/20160301024641/http://www.namejet.com:80/pages/auctions/standarddetails.aspx?auctionid=3737648

    Nivens McTwisp – It was reported by James Booth himself.

    Prices for NNN .com domains aren’t what they used to be 2 years ago, when certain numbers pushed the million dollar figure.

  3. Nivens McTwisp says:

    It’s also worth noting that bids under reserve are essentially nonbinding, and as such shouldn’t be considered a true valuation? Correct me if I’m wrong…

    Nivens McTwisp – Bidding below a known reserve can be considered “safe bidding,” but it can also lead to a sale, eventually, via a private agreement.
