That w2 dude is really spending a lot on a bunch of domains. Even some questionable ones.

Someone tell him he can get better prices over here

Yeah, definitely, this one makes no sense to me.

I see Coke or Pepsi as a potential buyer, but not much else commercial value. On top of that, the ASCII domain www.Cola.com is not owned by Coke or Pepsi so there may be no interest from those companies.

This is probably a 6-figure name. No kidding!

Yes, it means [cola].com, or [coke].com, (or even [pepsi].com).

Really, sold for $2703 and it is worth six figures, the non-idners would love that. No offense, i just think we sometimes get a little carried away with our estimates.

I would say quite a bit, Bill. Especially since コーラ.jp seems to be owned by Coca-Cola and has been registered since 2001.

Why is this name worth 6 figures? What can you sell on cola.com? I'd rather sell fur!

Maybe contests, giveaways, and coupons. And of course brand awareness.

Worldwide it is a $ 70,000,000,000 (70 billion dollar) industry.

Coke alone does $15 billion in sales outside of the US.

Re: 可乐.com (Cola.com) $2703 on Snap

If you actually see how Coke is spending on promotions/ads the cost of one day of meetings by the ad agency here is more than that.

Coke is the short form for CocaCola.
Pepsi is the short form for PepsiCola.

Imagine what would happen if "Coke.com" is owned by PepsiCola? Of course, it's not possible in English, but it's possible in Chinese.

可口可乐 is CocaCola.
百事可乐 is PepsiCola.

Interestingly, 可乐 is the short form for both 可口可乐 and 百事可乐. 可乐.com is very important strategically for both companies.

Also, 可乐 is not a trademark, and people say 可乐 most of the time, but seldom its long forms.

In this case, a new Chinese idiom ---> 得可乐者, 得天下.

Re: 可乐.com (Cola.com) $2703 on Snap

cola, definitely.

Which isn't a TM term, and there are a LOT more cola products out there than just Coke and Pepsi, which increases its value.

cola is also spanish for "tail", having sexual connotations as well. Just in case you weren't aware.

"warm smell of colitas, rising up through the air"

Well, no, in the song they're actually refering to the ends of roaches (Cheech and Chong type of roach), this is just an alternative meaning to make people even more confused over what the song is really about.

Can you please share the website you use to check for chinese trademarks.

可乐.com is more than just a translation for Cola.com, it's basically coke.com (the drink type).

I find this site seems only supports Chinese,I think you can understand Chinese so you can check these.
I don't think there is TM issue if people build a soft drink linked webiste because any soft drink company could use "XX可乐“ named their soft drink,but it still have troubles if use this domain not suitable beacuse there are 21 Trademarks named as "可乐"
