Steam.com – $390,560
When GoDaddy revealed that it sold Steam.com for $390,560, most assumed that gaming company Valve would have been the buyer, upgrading their popular gaming store from SteamPowered.com to Steam.com.

That isn’t the case, though. The buyer was from China, and I believe that it was a domain investor that purchased it. The name holds similar WHOIS data and landing pages to Gold.com, HD.com, and Soft.com among other names. A fee of $390,560 could certainly be a domain investor purchase, especially in this market.

If that was truly sold to a domain investor it shows confidence in his domaining skills.
He is pretty sure he can turn around and sell it at a profit.


Do you think he can?


I sure do, in fact I would have paid that had I had the opportunity to bid.

I see this domain selling upwards of 2.5 million given the possibility of end users.


Nice profit margin!!

Buyer most definitely got a fantastic deal on this. If you compare this to recent .com sales this year, it’s definitely one of the better names and best value for the price.

I don’t think many people realize how many great .com’s Chinese buyers have in their hands. I would love to know how many 2 L and 2 N .com’s that are registered to a Chinese company/individual.

Agree as well. I have 0 doubt that they will turn an excellent profit on a nice one-worder .com like that.

I was going to also say: "the only question is how long will it take", but I think that matters more in terms of how much of a profit they want to make.

Steam.com is a much better domain than exodus.com and ebike.com too, imo.

100% in agreement. Easily a 7-fig domain.

I also think it’s a 7fig domain. Great buy by an astute domainer.
