When it comes to sales and acquisitions, some investors are more open than others. Recently, there have been a number of acquisitions mentioned on Twitter and I have listed my eleven recent favorites. If you have your own acquisitions you'd like to announce, feel free to leave a comment.
In 2015, the company Manor (then known as Upside Door) was founded with an aim to help "homeowners maximize and accelerate outcomes related to their homes and associated values." The company has raised a total of $2.7 million in funding and recently announced a partnership with real estate company Xome.
Nothing out of the ordinary there. However, there is when we look at their domain name usage. The company went from Manor.com to ManorFinancial.com, a significant downgrade.
That name is Micro.com, acquired by Brent in 2019 for an undisclosed fee from, according to WHOIS history KC Micro Specialists Inc. After owning the name for less than a year, Brent reached an agreement to sell the name.
According to a NamePros post just published by member "Keith", the domain name NAS.com was just sold for $720,000.
According to WHOIS, the buyer is from China. As of publishing, I haven't received independent verification of the sale, so this is a report of a NamePros post at the moment.
If it is verified, the name will rank as the largest sale of 2020 so far on DNJournal's chart, beating the previous incumbent, OA.com ($614,940) by some margin.
In comparison to some of Brent’s other names such as Broker.com, Create.com and VT.com, this name may not rank as one of his best, but it’s still a versatile name that has positive connotations and possible commercial use. It is, however, easily misspelled. I for one had to double check the spelling, not mistaking it for “Complement.”
