Featuring another .us domain name today, this one is HUGE! Candy.us is a spectacular domain name owned by Brad Mugford, over at DataCube.com. As you probably know by now, Candy.com sold for $3 million dollars this year to a candy producer here in the United States. Combine that nice sale with the recent surge in popularity of premium .us domain names and it looks like Brad has a real winner here!
This super premium domain name is for sale, but only to the right offer. There are tentative development plans for the domain if no sale occurs. Since the blockbuster sale of Candy.com, type in traffic to Candy.us has been on the rise steadily. It is at 10m in Alexa and climbing.
Also, Candy is a highly competitive keyword as is shown by the 850+ Google keyword sponsors, and the following monthly search volume for the term: Phrase – 16.6M | Exact – 1.2M
Ultimately, the best domain name for a business to own is the top generic term in .com and their respective countries ccTLD, .US in this case. A one word ccTLD like Candy.us would have the same SEO power in the target demographic as their .com counterpart making it a very powerful tool for online commerce.
