Hello, happy Monday, and welcome to Morgan’s Flippa Five. Flippa has been in the news a lot lately, from this recent article in the Washington Post to countless articles about what will probably go down as one of the most famous sales on the site – ShipYourEnemiesGlitter.com.
All of this media attention is without a doubt sending even more premium names to Flippa which makes my job of finding just five actually a whole lot harder. That being said, I’m a fan of short lists so I’m sticking with five, here are my top picks for this week.
Emerging.com – sometimes I’m on the fence about one word names ending in “ing” however in this case I like it. In fact I think it’s probably a stronger name than emerge.com but that’s just my opinion. Either way this is a meaningful and positive one-word .COM that everyone can remember and spell.
Automating.com – okay so this is one of those one word names ending in “ing” that I think is stronger without it. Yes, I think automate.com is a better name, but that’s not for sale on Flippa so I can’t say much about it. What I can tell you is that we are living in a world where more and more things are automated, heck we all carry what would be considered a super-computer ten years ago in our pocket. For a company that specializes in automation this is a nice one.
Lift.io – it’s been no secret that startups have been flocking to the .IO extension and this is a very solid one. The only concern I have is that it could be easily confused with Lyft, the ridesharing startup, however “lift” is a very generic word and there are lots of uses for this name particularly as an API.
Sell.org – I’m not a huge .ORG fan, I think I’ve said that about a million times now, still I have a thing for short, meaningful one word domains and this is about as good as it gets. Still I think .ORG is best suited for non-profits so if you’re looking to buy a domain you can sell for a huge profit this might not be the right fit. If you’re a non-profit looking to build on domain this could be a steal of a deal.
Cases.co – with so many smart devices it’s not surprising that case sales have gone through the roof. Cases are high-margin products that are easy to sell online and people often don’t need to see in-person. Cases.com definitely would cost a pretty penny but with the .CO you could get a store up and running in no time without the sticker shock.
