I get a lot of e-mails and phone calls from people who are interested in, and want to purchase, alfie.com. Requests have come from all types of people…small business owners, investment bankers, domain brokers, GoDaddy, individuals, and even a British magician! Cash offers have ranged from $100 to $250,000 and I have given them all the same response…alfie.com is NOT for sale.
I have owned alfie.com for more than 20 years. Over that time, I have created and used dozens of e-mail addresses associated with the domain, and those represent my login credentials to virtually every online site to which I subscribe. Further, in the United States, “Alfie” is a very unique name and I leverage that uniqueness as a way to distinguish myself – both professionally and politically. As a national speaker and consultant, I use the domain for my clients to access their work and to publicize my services. In addition, in the past, I have run for political office and alfie.com hosted my campaign site and was incorporated into my logo (see below). In the future, the domain may be used for this purpose again.
That said, as a professional economist, I realize that virtually everything is for sale at some price. Alfie.com is a very unique, premium 5-letter, .com domain name. According to Google Search Analytics, there are millions of searches for “Alfie” every month! So, after giving the issue a great deal of thought, I have decided that the personal, political, and professional value of the domain to me is roughly $1.5 million (USD). If that is more than you are willing to pay, please don’t waste your time contacting me about purchasing this domain.
