    yes yonghs, it's in US dollars. there are a few more sales afterwards, and I'll update soon. BTW, one of mine got sold too (decent enough to get me a macbook)

    iamafreelancer, think all five-digit or less numbers are valued high, ie. 0.com until 99999.com - there are just short and would stand for something, although 90210 would probably valued quite favorably among others besides the 4-digit or shorter ones.

    don't bother checking, i'm pretty sure they are all taken ;( [some people really are lucky]

    all the best... anyone could hit a jackpot with a careful selection in getting domain names. (I have, repeatedly already over the past few years -- not huge ones, but enough for make me take a month or so vacation each time)

    what so great about castillo domain??
    look normal to me.
    does it worth buying all these domains?
    couldn't we just simply buy some domains, and wait for it to turn popular sometime?

    1. castillo is index for 40-million web pages according to Google. that's pretty popular I must say: Castillo - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia eg. "Kuala Lumpur" is only index no more than 4-million (10x less!!), so you can imagine that "Kuala Lumpur" could still worth no more than $10K at present valuation. -- Penang is more popular BTW, and myteam is only indexed for 200K web pages ;(

    2. domain trading has matured by now. just like forex, stock trading, gold trading etc, domain trading could actually be much more lucrative and stable (less risk). many traders make at least twice their investment by buying and selling worthy names. I have personal experience where the domains I've sold get re-sold for multiple times more, or getting multiple-times offer price after I've gotten rid of the names. The key is the skills to appraise/value the names.

    3. buy new and wait: yes, possible, but it's likely a very long term investment -- at least two years or longer. but considering that you could be making 100x or more than your initial/on-going investment, nothing should hold you from that. but be modest. don't buy every name you've come across or you could end up with say, RM10K/yr annual costs for renewal of just 300 names.
    but, there are individuals who maintain names worth millions of dollars in renewal fees, but still making millions in annual revenues so this could actually be a solid business just like selling tangible things.

    all the best everyone!

    yay! just sold another domain for 4-digit USD today... in time for me to really vacation in Tokyo next week.

    Nasir

    Exclamation oh my blog....

    Nice... good return for the original Bob Jiwakacau, and at the right time when the domain is still hot and going up in popularity. the sale itself has propelled its popularity even further, so the new owner (calvyn, the guy from India already introduced himself on the blog) can benefit more instantly and would likely make his money back within 6 mths or less by continuing the good work of Bob so far in the past 5 short mths, or resell it!

    with such a good potential, the domain itself already worth a few thousands dollars. added with all the assets, i'd say the package was worth a lot more than $10K. maybe should be around $50-100K (but would have to wait or spend more to find the right/willing buyers). Going to a live auction (with pre-event PR etc) could be a better choice than an online one with limited audience.

    anyway, is this the biggest sale of a Malaysian-created blog we've come across so far? Isn't there a bigger one? if I'm not mistaken a Singaporean guy also sold his site not too long ago for some 5-digit as well.

    oh, it was a private transaction, out of public auction. so, have to hush hush on the exact details to protect the buyer's privacy (a Russian from Britain I suppose). the transaction was completed fast and the fund was banked by escrow within a week.

    the name is a long domain ~ 15 alphabets, WITHOUT a dash, made of two popular english words in the fields of banking/finance.

    happy scouting for domain treasures!
