After 9 years of starting over 31 internet businesses, Mr. Dillon Dao, has literally met his match. With plans of a future engagement, he has promised his significant other more quality time, hence, he’s decided to sell all of his internet businesses. His asset sales include: his company’s online dating division, along with 423 niche dating domains, and a huge portfolio of 567 generic domain names, all of which can be seen at http://www.nichecashcows.com and http://www.datingsoftwaretips.com.
Asked why he’s selling, Dillon states, “I’ve worked 16 hours days since the start of the internet since 1996, and now its time for a new chapter in my life. It’s about time for me to start a family and settle down.” At first inspection of his domain portfolio, one would agree that they are truly great domains, not junk or made up domains. They do have a lot of intrinsic value and great potential for starting online portal and ecommerce businesses. A lot of the names are very generic and easy to remember. Basically, that’s what counts the most in valuation and domain pricing.
For instance, if someone were looking to start a college student discount ecommerce or an affiliate portal site, then CollgeDiscounts.com would perfectly fit the business model. Or how about starting a grant writing website, helping people search, find, and write grant proposals? Then GrantWritingTips.com or GrantSecrets.com would be the ideal name for this venture. If those weren’t enough, then here’s a few more domains to turn on your entrepreneurial spirit : PrepaidHealth.com, CampusModels.com, HypnoticSecrets.com, TonerSuppliers.com etc. These are just a few of the top level domains in Mr. Dao’s domain portfolio up for grabs at http://www.nichecashcows.com. All of the domains in the portfolio have a business model waiting to be launched. Dillon has had a lot of successful online ventures thanks to the easy branding of his domains.
