This morning I saw a tweet about the sale of RemoteJobs.net for $4,000 – my initial instinct was, that feels like a pretty solid deal, for an end-user.
The tweet mentions that it looks like the new owner is building out the site and I popped over to RemoteJobs.net to take a look and saw a login screen for Skote, which is an admin Dashboard template.
I agree with Adam, this would make me think they are building it out, which means it’s likely an end-user that bought it and hence, as I said above, my take would be that they got a good deal.
There’s not a ton of sales data for two-word .NET domains with the word remote in it but here are handful I pulled from NameBio:
- RemoteAccess.net – $1,000
- RemoteBackup.net – $913
- UniversalRemotes.net – $2,999
I personally don’t think any of these are as strong as RemoteJobs.net especially given how hot the remote job space is right now. Also if you put yourself in the mind of a consumer, I think it’s safe to say more people are searching for “remote jobs” than for remote access, remote jobs, or universal remotes.
Of course, I couldn’t help but take a look at search volume for “remote jobs” and I was actually surprised to see that while it is up over the last year, it’s not the hockey stick growth I was expecting to see.
Still, my final verdict is that this is a solid price for an end-user, if it was a domain investor I would say they overpaid as there wouldn’t be much ROI potential. What do you think?
