HostGator founder Brent Oxley has been in the news recently thanks to his development of Create.com into a brand new hosting service. According to TechRadar, Oxley is getting closer to launching the hosting company after signing a new office lease in Houston, Texas.
Despite all this, Brent has continued to pick up some valuable domain names. Here are Brent’s recent purchases.
Bath.com, a four-letter .COM to add to Oxley’s already impressive collection that includes Firm.com, Toll.com, and Sand.com. According to my records, Bath.com was featured in the QEIP.com newsletter in February 2019 with an asking price of $425,000.
Another four-letter .COM that is a short, positive brand name with obvious potential uses within the wine or champagne industries. This name looks to have been acquired from FirstPlace Internet Inc. Brent has previously acquired names such as Vehicle.com from this company.
Estimate.com is a name that Oxley acquired from a MarkMonitor client. According to WHOIS history, the MarkMonitor client in question was likely to be Sage Software Inc, a company that operates on Sage.com. Sage also sold Peach.com recently, via MarkMonitor.
Adding to Brent’s list of geographical domains that includes NorthDakota.com and Belgium.com is Arizona.com. Acquired from a company that listed itself as Arizona.com LLC, Arizona.com is listed at VIPBrokerage.com under their “notable sales” section, which would signify that VIP Brokerage was responsible for this sale.

He can’t leave any domains for the rest of us?
The majority of the names he picks up are readily available to any investors… Bath.com and Cork.com have previously been listed on newsletters with no takers – Brent just pays more than most investors would in order to secure the best assets.
I’m a domain socialist. 😄
Nothing special, not a shocker-all it takes is money!!
