Domain investor and founder of DomainMarket.com, Mike Mann, took to Twitter on Saturday night to announce his latest significant domain sale, that of BloodBalance.com for $39,888.

According to Mike’s tweet, he acquired the domain in July 2017 for $19, likely from an expired auction or a GoDaddy closeout listing. According to WHOIS history, the domain was owned by a doctor from California before it transferred to Mann’s possession.

What makes the term “Blood Balance” so significant that someone would pay $39,888 for it? Based on some quick Google-ing, a product has recently been released called Blood Balance Formula which is a supplement that supposedly supports the body against hypertension.

Who bought the domain? As of writing, BloodBalance.com still seems to be in the possession of Mike’s company, but a followup to Mike’s earlier tweet may have signaled that the buyer was Nutrition Hacks, the creator of the Blood Balance Formula. They are currently using the domain TheBloodBalance.com, so this would be a direct domain upgrade.

This sale comes weeks after the domain industry veteran Mann dropped 50,000 domains from his vast portfolio. After this cull, Theo Develegas reported that Mike has dropped a further 16% of his portfolio, bringing his domain total down to around 250,000 names.

With 250,000 names in his portfolio, that would still put Mike’s renewal bill somewhere in the region of $2 million per year. His company needs to produce these significant returns on investment.

Nonetheless, turning a $19 purchase into a $39,888 sale is impressive.

Brent Oxley Sells Uno.com in a 7 Figure Financed Deal

Hostgator founder turned domain investor Brent Oxley has amassed a portfolio filled with some of the most desirable domains on the Internet. From the likes of Broker.com and Create.com to Athlete.com and VT.com, Brent has spent a significant amount of money to create a portfolio anyone would be envious of.

Brent acquires plenty of domains (I’ve reported on countless acquisitions over the last five years), but he sells very few. Today, I can report one name that he has sold in a seven-figure financed deal, and that is Uno.com.

Resolve Physician Agency Acquires Resolve.com via Sedo

Last week, a couple of investors noticed that the domain Resolve.com moved from its longstanding ownership at financial technologies company D+H Ltd into a Sedo holding account.

Jamie Zoch of DotWeekly tweeted the news:

This one-word .COM has just moved out of Sedo's holding account and shows new WHOIS ownership information, signifying that the domain has been sold via Sedo. According to WHOIS, the new owner is the Resolve Physician Agency, a specialist employment agency for physicians.

LT.com Looks to Have Been Sold by Telepathy, After LT.co.uk Reportedly Sells for £83,000

Telepathy Inc, the domain investment portfolio founded by industry veteran Nat Cohen, has a penchant for short names. The company is listed as owning hundreds of three-letter .COM's, and also several two-letter .COM's.

It seems that Telepathy may have sold one of its two-letter .COM's after LT.com was transferred out of Telepathy's Name.com account to a NameCheap account. At the same time, the domain's nameserver data was updated. As of writing, the WHOIS data connected to LT.com's owner has been redacted for privacy purposes.
