Who Are Brandbucket Buyers?

Who are Brandbucket buyers?  If you are planning to start you own brandable domain name marketplace of some sort or already own a brandable domain market place then this will be one of the questions you should be asking.

There are some reasons why you may decide to do this and they could be the following:

  1. You already own a brandable domain marketplace and want to scale your business
  2.  Avoid unfair marketplaces
  3. Listing fees for all domains you got approved seems expensive and the funds to be paid is enough to get your own name store built
  4. Slow conversions, not getting many sales and maximum exposure

However, regardless of the reasons of why you may decide to run your own marketplace you should understand the amount of work required before stepping into this and I probably will discuss this in detail in another post. For now, we will assume you understand the amount of work required.

Being able to understand who are Brandbucket buyers are is very critical for your business and allows you to be placed in a better selling posting, in fact the theory   should be the foundation of your business. So how do I find this out?  There are two approach to achieve this and today I will be discussing the most trivial approach that you may have overlooked.

In a nutshell you can find Brandbucket buyers in the most up to date Brandbucket sold domain list that Dnbolt publishes. To acquire the data accurately you should allow at least 21 days from the sales date and simply make a whois call to those list, that’s all.

As I am writing this post am kind of contemplating if I should go ahead and spill more of my discoveries that has been very fruitful to me, I will share just one. From my past research and analysis, I discovered that a some of Brandbucket buyers are merely investors and you could easily tell by checking which sites are developed from the sold list. So this means there should be high chance that these investors would also be interested in the domains you have.

Interesting right? Well that’s it for the day, enjoy.


A simple way to tell if investors (rather than end users) are buying these sites is to do a reverse whois check. The following tool is useful to use.


If they own multiple sites then it is pretty obvious end users haven’t purchased the sites. End users would not normally own multiple sites.
