Brent Oxley’s Recent Acquisitions: Bastard.com, Quarantine.com, and More

HostGator and Create.com founder Brent Oxley has quickly assembled a portfolio of some of the most desirable domain names. Led by names such as Broker.com, Hybrid.com, and Give.com, Oxley is known as an avid investor in one-word .COM domains.

Recently, Oxley has acquired seven more .COM domain names to add to his portfolio of close to 200 domains. While he does sell the occasional domain, Oxley’s acquisitions far outpace his sales. As usual, Oxley’s purchases have been added to his portfolio website at Efty.com.

 

Baptize.com

This one-word .COM has obvious religious overtones. The name was acquired by Oxley from Francine Callahan, an investor that recently sold the highly valuable Acquisition.com domain. The sale of Baptize.com may have been brokered by VPN.com as the domain is listed on that company’s website.

 

Bastard.com

Bastard.com found its way into Oxley’s portfolio from the ownership of Elliot Silver’s Top Notch Domains LLC. According to Twitter, Silver’s company acquired the name earlier this year before the name moved into Oxley’s possession. Bastard.com is on sale at Oxley.com with a minimum offer value of $75,000.

 

Collapse.com

Collapse.com previously sold for $15,000 at Sedo in 2013 and hosted a basic economics website for several years, according to Archive.org. Now, the name has moved into Oxley’s possession and commands a $100,000 minimum offer value at Oxley’s marketplace.

 

Hops.com

Hops, a key component of beer, is a term that has gradually become more popular online thanks to the rise and increased popularity of small breweries. The name was previously owned by Forte Web Properties before it was acquired by Oxley.

 

Quarantine.com

Quarantine seems to have been one of the most-used words of 2020, thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Quarantine.com domain was listed for sale in the Media Options newsletter last year for $149,000, but it’s unclear what price Oxley paid for the domain, or whether Media Options brokered this deal. The name is up for sale at Oxley’s website with a $100,000 minimum offer value.

 

Relocate.com

Oxley has acquired a number of real estate-related domain names including Let.com and Listing.com, and I think Relocate.com can sit nicely next to those real estate names. The name looks to have been acquired from Landmark Media Enterprises LLC, a media company that owns dozens of local newspapers in the US.

 

Succulent.com

Another domain name that looks to have moved from the ownership of Elliot Silver’s Top Notch Domains LLC to Oxley is Succulent.com. According to WHOIS history, Top Notch Domains LLC originally acquired the name in 2018 from The Trimensa Corporation.
