11 of My Recent Favorite Domain Acquisitions Spotted on Twitter

If you are an active domain name investor, Twitter is one of the most convenient ways to connect with other domain investors. From new domainers up to seasoned professionals, domaining Twitter has the lot.

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.

Manor Downgrades from Manor.com to ManorFinancial.com

This year, I've covered several domain upgrades. Most notably was Stash's upgrade from StashInvest.com to Stash.com and Orchard's upgrade from OrchardHomes.com to Orchard.com. It's a surprise, then, to see a company downgrade.

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.

Brent Oxley Also Sold Micro.com in a 6 Figure Financed Deal

Yesterday, I announced that Brent Oxley sold the domain Uno.com in a seven-figure financed deal. Today, I can reveal another name that Brent sold, this time in a high six-figure financed deal.

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.

NAS.com Sells for $720,000

We haven't had a seven-figure sale so far this year, but we may just have a new contender for the number 1 sale of 2020 so far.

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.

Brent Oxley’s Latest Purchase: Compliment.com

Hostgator founder turned domain investor Brent Oxley has acquired a new domain name to add to his collection of stellar one-word, two-letter, and three-letter .COM’s. That name is compliment.com.

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.”
