The power of the “e “


The recent sale of eSPORTS.COM for $1,000,000+ reflects the continued strong demand (and prices) for “e” prefixed domain names. Additionally, short domain names that begin with “e” also show strong demand with recent sales of ETH.COM for $2,000,000 and the sale of ETF.COM for $3,500,000 (in a package sale). This trend is likely to continue well into the future. Why?

Many high-profile businesses choose names that start with an "e" because the “e” leads a person to their website. Examples are:

  • eBay.com

  • eTrade.com

  • eSports.com

  • eFlowers.com

  • eBet.com

  • eBags.com

  • eBates.com

  • eTravel.com

  • eLoans.com

  • eShow.com

  • ETH.com

  • ETF.com

Additionally, tech giants invest in “e” prefixed domain names for the long haul. Examples are below…

  • eSHOP.COM (Microsoft)

  • eSPORT.COM (Dicks Sporting Goods)

  • eSIGNATURE.COM (Adobe.com)

  • eTOYS.COM (Toys R Us)

  • eWORLD.COM (Apple)

  • eNEWS.COM (Barnes and Noble)

  • eTRADE.COM (invested 1million in ePlay.com in the past)

  • eMOVIES.COM (eOnline.com)

  • eROOM.COM (OpenText)

  • eWEEK.COM (owned by large news site)

These e-prefixed domain names will probably never be available again. When an ultra-short, brandable e-prefixed domain name comes on the market it would be wise for a company to quickly invest in such an appreciating asset.

Here are a few actual e-prefixed and ultra-short “e” domain name sales…

eBET.COM $1,350,000

eFLOWERS.COM $1,000,000

eSPORTS.COM $1,000,000+

ETH.COM $2,000,000

ETF.COM* $3,500,000

ePREGNANCY.COM $2,150,000

eSHOW.COM $3,000,000
