Last week a surprise email hit my inbox. It was from GoDaddy telling me one of the domains I had listed on their auction site had sold and I was about to receive a few thousand bucks. Not bad for a domain that I spent $100 bucks on years ago. My investment finally paid off.
GigJob.com is a six letter domain that has been around for a number of years. I think it sold because its short and memorable along with the fact that it will probably be used for some sort of gig economy site.
I have bought and sold many domains over the years. I once sold careerclicks.com for $10k almost 20 years ago. More recently domains like jobspotter.com sold for $3,500 and the Jobster.com name from the former social network was acquired for $200k.
Short 2 word job domains that focus around a niche are worth anywhere from $5k-$50k depending on the niche. 3 word job domains are worth much less so don’t expect to get big dollars for those types. With so may domain extensions now available, the ones that command a premium will always be the short dot com versions.
If you want to sell your domains I suggest trying to list it on places like Sedo.com, Flippa.com or GoDaddy auctions. You just might get lucky.

I managed to get ecomjobs for my country and another country. It will be focused around jobs for e-commerce and marketing.
Cool, its not a true two word domain but close enough!
Congrats on the sale, Chris, but I”m actually surprised that this domain didn’t go for more!
With millions of jobs from hundreds of gig companies currently in circulation and the many publishers who focus on generating gig job revenue, this could have made a nice domain to collect all this job content into one property and go to market with a nice gig-focused job board that earns revenue on a cpc\cpa model!
I’m speculating the new owner has exactly that in mind.
Thanks Joe, I would agree.
