HostGator founder Brent Oxley has amassed one of the most powerful portfolios of domain names in recent years. Since buying Give.com via Sedo for $500,000 in 2015, Brent has gone on to acquire some of the best domains on the Internet, including Broker.com, Document.com, and Uno.com.
He’s also sold a few domain names, too. Curve.com, purchased by Brent from General Motors, was sold to the well-funded fintech startup Curve as an upgrade from Curve.app. Aside from that, Brent has struck deals for Edit.com, and Pack.com.
Despite the global pandemic that is COVID-19, Brent is still buying domains. Here are some of his most recent purchases:
Supermodel.com: Before being acquired by Brent in April 2020, Supermodel.com hosted a basic members-only website that offered services to aspiring models and actors. In the early 2000s, the domain looks to have hosted a more active site that included job opportunities, and a message board.
Tiara.com: This name was acquired by Brent from broker and investor James Booth. According to NameBio, the sales price was listed at $55,000. LinkedIn shows a fair number of end-users for this domain, who’ll have to offer Brent at least $100,000 to acquire the domain, according to the current landing page.
Bronco.com: The word “Bronco” may be instantly synonymous with the OJ Simpson car chase that lead to Domino’s Pizza’s busiest day on record (at the time), but by definition, “Bronco” is a wild or untamed horse in the western United States. The name was acquired from a Utah individual who owned the name from 2013-2020.
Sand.com: Brent added Sand.com to his strong portfolio of other four-letter .COM domains that includes Firm.com, Item.com, and Give.com. According to my records, Sand.com was being brokered by Media Options in 2017, with a $240,000 asking price appearing in one Media Options newsletter at the time. The acquisition price has not been revealed.
