Brent Oxley’s acquisitions are something that I cover a lot on James/Names. I’ve previously blogged about his acquisition of Invite.com, and his acquisitions of names such as Sand.com earlier in the year.
I cover his purchases because they’re usually significant premium .COM domains acquired for at least five to six-figures. In a matter of years, Brent has amassed a portfolio of some of the best domains on the planet. He has managed to compile this portfolio thanks to the money he received when he sold his hosting company, HostGator for $300 million.
Brent already owns domains such as Document.com, Hybrid.com, and Broker.com, and now he has added two more stellar names to his lineup, Motivate.com, and HealthSpa.com.
Both of these domains were acquired from Webmagic Ventures LLC, a company that also owns domains such as Nevada.com, Account.com, and Ace.com, according to DomainIQ. Within Brent’s portfolio, he also owns state names such as NorthDakota.com, and he has previously acquired bigger names such as Texas.com. Could we see Nevada.com heading his way soon, too?
So far this week, we’ve seen some monumental one-word .COM domain deals including Kate Buckley’s sale of Believe.com for $200,000, and Monte Cahn’s sales of Kick.com and Cogent.com for $276,077.45 and $60,029.60 respectively.
HealthSpa.com is a name that has obvious uses within a very lucrative industry, and Motivate.com has tens of companies that could end up acquiring this domain. Bike-share company Motivate, acquired by Lyft for around $250 million, currently operates on Motivateco.com, for example.
Update 18th June 2020: Brent has also just added Tasting.com, a domain acquired from China.
