The Catholic Media Portfolio VOLUME TWO – announcing the addition of the ultra-premium, single word domain, Catholic.xyz
Nov 30, 2021. God works in mysterious ways. The last week of November I sold one of my favorite domains, reef.xyz. Honestly I was sad to see it go. And I let it go for much less than what I believe it is worth. But the ROI was solid considering it only cost me about $10 per year to hold. In any event, had I not sold reef I would not have stumbled upon the auction for Catholic.xyz. When I saw the domain, listed for auction at sav.com, I knew I was going to make a play for it. The bidding was really slow leading up to the final hours of the online auction. The price floated around $65 for several days with only 2 bids. I dare not show my face or make my presence known until the last minute when I would swoop in and triumphantly claim my prize. So I waited. Much to my chagrin during the wee hours of the morning (about 8 hours before the auction expired) a number of bids came up bringing the price up to $200 and then $800. Ouch! This domain was about to get expensive! The domain eventually went up to $1500 with just 5 minutes to go. I came in and authorized a proxy bid of up to $1850! No one else bid and so I nailed Catholic.xyz for $1610 (which was more painful that I wanted but less than I was prepared to go). I am very excited to add this domain to my portfolio of Catholic names.
After selling reef.xyz I went a little crazy and registered around 80 new .xyz names (I’ll add another post on that subject). For now, here are the additions that related to my faith:
- Catholic.xyz – naturally I paired this with CatholicXYZ.com to mitigate confusion over the newer .xyz.
- Tuus.xyz – my nod to St. Pope John Paul II
- Prayerful.xyz –
