33 Domain Name Upgrades & Acquisitions in 2021

2021 has been an extremely active year with some of the best domain names in the world exchanging hands at premium prices. We’ve already brokered the sale of over 15+ one word .coms since January 1st.


It’s been a while since we’ve done a post examining recent domain upgrades and acquisitions by startups and corporations, so we figured it was time to share a few from this year. As expected, more and more companies are realizing that the world’s best brands are one word names and they need the matching .COM domain to be relevant.


Below are 33 domains that changed hands in the first half of 2021. Most of these are one word .COMs that were acquired as an upgrade from a two word domain or one word with an alternative extension (.io, .app, .me, etc).


Big shoutout to James Illes for being such a great domain sleuth and publishing his findings at JamesNames.com which is our goto blog for domain name sales news.
