I was informed that Monster Worldwide Inc. has sold 14,300 domain names in a bulk deal for “six figures” that mainly relate to school/education domains and the buyers were Endurance/BuyDomains.com based on whois records.

Also based on whois records, Monster.com owns around 24,000 domain names, so that is about 58% of its domain name portfolio it has sold in the deal.

Monster.com

Since the exact purchase price is not known, the price per domain would be fairly low if the numbers are correct. Even if the portfolio of 14,300 domain names sold for a half of a million dollars, that would pin a number of about $35 per domain (which is reg fee at Network Solutions for an example), which seems low in general. I have also heard that this education domain portfolio was being shopped.

Here are a few of the domains that I was made aware that have sold in the portfolio deal:

drivingschools.com
languageschool.com
languageschools.com
education.net
businesscolleges.com
taxbrackets.com
secondaryeducation.com
mastersprograms.com
militaryschools.com
truckgame.com
managementgames.com
satpreparation.com
opencolleges.com
flightgame.com
trabajosocial.com
computerprogrammers.com
collegemajors.com
jobgames.com
militarycollege.com
frankfortschools.com
sacramentoschools.com
memorygames.com
resumeexamples.com
compareschools.com
englishtranslator.com
liberalstudies.com

Monster Worldwide Inc. is a publicly traded company on NYSE: MWW and is a jobs related service.

Over the past several days, the domain names have been moving over to BuyDomains.com

3 Responses to Monster Worldwide Inc Sells Over 14,000 Domains To BuyDomains.com
  1. BuyDomains.com got a smoking deal. Just the domains you listed hold great value. MemoryGames.com and Education.net are stellar domains.

    Thanks for reporting this transaction. Interesting mix of education domain names.

  2. It looks like Monster.com still owns StudentCenter.com, which is a great edu name that they have had since the 90’s. Our original site was on StudentCenter.org before we purchased Student.com and we would have loved to own StudentCenter.com but I could never get a response from Monster. (We no longer own Student.com).

  3. This sale is depressing if the names you listed are representative of the whole portfolio. Makes no sense pricewise and way underpriced. Hopefully, the rest of the portfolio was crap to justify the low price.
