View Full Version : Assurance.mobi sold at Sedo

11-27-2010, 06:25 AM
Just noticed Assurance.mobi sold on Sedo for $1650 euros.

It is probably just wishful thinking but it would be nice to see Assurance.mobi end up in the hands of an end user like Assurance Wireless (http://www.assurancewireless.com/Public/Welcome.aspx)

Hi Think it means "insurance" in French and appears to be a Landrush name. I wonder if a member here bought or sold it.

Here are the previous sales listed on Namebio.com for "assurance"

assurancevie.com http://namebio.com/images/information.png (http://namebio.com/info/assurancevie.com) $43,500 2009-08-02 sedo.com
assurance-vie.com http://namebio.com/images/information.png (http://namebio.com/info/assurance-vie.com) $43,500 2009-08-02 sedo.com
assuranceauto.org http://namebio.com/images/information.png (http://namebio.com/info/assuranceauto.org) $766 2008-06-03 sedo.com
kelassurance.fr http://namebio.com/images/information.png (http://namebio.com/info/kelassurance.fr) $1,215 2008-03-01 sedo.com
assurance-sante.com http://namebio.com/images/information.png (http://namebio.com/info/assurance-sante.com) $13,566 2007-04-18 Sedo
assurance-de-personnes.com http://namebio.com/images/information.png (http://namebio.com/info/assurance-de-personnes.com) $2,660 2007-03-08 Sedo
auto-assurance.fr http://namebio.com/images/information.png (http://namebio.com/info/auto-assurance.fr) $1,330 2007-01-30

Here are some from DNJournal.com this year:

assurancevoyage.fr $2,010
AssuranceAuto.net €5,000 = $6,950

BTW assurance auto is car insurance, assurance vie is life insurance, assurance sante is health insurance, personnes is people/personal, voyage is travel.

French domains generally seem to me to have low prices but that could change. It has been relatively rare to see a French mobi sell, but that seems to me like a modest price. Is mobi uptake significant in Francophone countries, or are French mobis just a domainer-collector hobby?

A question, can well known international companies genuinely interested in .mobi domain, approach DotMobi with their intentions?:hmmmm2:
they may grant them the name- on the condition that it be used (within a specified time frame):smile:

i would guess it's our own member commerce.fr who bought voiture.mobi recently

fortunately for him his home country keywords go for peanuts
can you imagine buying car.mobi for $1k
or insurance.mobi for $1.6k ?

french keywords dont go for much. sometimes you see a big .fr sale, but thats rare
the french stick to .fr and even then dont like to shell out much it seems. although im guessing most bigger sales are under the radar and not on sedo etc

i may be wrong but i doubt its an enduser. hope im wrong but bet im not

Pred we're about to the point where cars.mobi might only fetch $1k. It's sad but true!

Depending on the day and the venue you may not be far ***. Certainly a well publicized auction would fetch more but I'd be surprised if it broke 5 figures.

Thanks for pointing out that this is also insurance in French. I thought it may have another meaning but I immediately thought a couple of companies that use the name here in the US like Assurance Wireless. Ah well...

Hi guys,
I bought this domain few months ago to develop a mobile site on insurance in the French language. It is obviously very early days for the mobile internet and there is only one major mobile insurance site for the French market at the moment: direct-assurance.mobi (Axa Group). But I am sure it was a good deal as I remember bidding for it at the landrush and it went way too high for my pockets at the time (higher than the price I bought it)... I also recently bought the plural, assurances.mobi and it is redirected to the singular. You are welcome to check the site and give me your feedback: www.assurance.mobi (http://www.assurance.mobi).

Congratulations on your name purchase. I can't read your mobile site but it looks good to me.
