Pizza.com Auction Dough Rises to over $2 million

by Adam Strong in Categories: Domain Auction

Pizza.comThe top-tier one word domain name Pizza.com is up for sale on Sedo.com and attracting a lot of attention in early bidding. In just 2 days of bidding, the domain has already attracted bids in excess of $2 million . Twenty bidders have already placed bids on the auction which has 5 more days left. This is a stellar domain but at these price levels, Domain Name News would expect there to be “end user” (rather than speculator) bidding on this domain name.

Typically with online auctions, bids slowly come in over the first few days only to quickly elevate during the last few minutes as bidders wait to “snipe” the auction. If this trend holds true, the Pizza.com auction could push over $3 million becoming one of the top sales ever for Sedo.com and putting the domain in the upper bracket of  highest reported domain sales.  Sedo.com brokered the sale of Vodka.com in late 2006 for $3 million to Russian Standard Vodka.

Looks like end users are bidding maybe
Pizzahut or PapaJohns could be Dominos.

How could they possibly recover that $2M for that domain name? I’m not sure if it’s even worth the buy.

Figure an average order of $20
That’s 100,000 pizzas in 1 year or 273 a day.
Spread the cost out over as low as 5 years and you are only talking about selling ~25 a day.
I’m sure pizza hut, papa johns, dominos can handle it.

Our ‘pizza’ domains look like phone numbers and offer direct navigation.

Domains that Target Pizza Sales
1-Pizza.com
1-Pizza.mobi
1-74992.com (74992 spells Pizza on a phone keypad)
1-74992.mobi

The 1- mimics a phone number so it’s a great memory trigger for people using a phone to connect to the web.

I have a feeling the reserve is a little less than what Pizza.com went for.

1.2-1.3

Time will tell I guess.

The crust thickens after the pizza.com domain sale…

Domain investors are challenged to ‘Think Outside the Pizza.com Box’ as 1-Pizza.com is being promoted on Ebay before auction.

NTWWEB please refrain from blatant self-promotion.

My apologies Adam. I thought my post was on topic. If we get a decent sale it would have been an interesting post for your visitors about pizza domains and a new competitive way to respond if you don’t get pizza.com and needed it. I respect that it’s your site and is well worth visiting.
