      Looks like it was bought privately through Sedo bidding platform…

    Good names tend to only sell once.

    This is why with .com very high sales above $1m *on the aftermarket* are declining and overall there is a higher median being achieved with most decent .com domains finding $100,000 as the floor. (I agree with Rob, was a steal).

    It’s not that $1-10m sales aren’t happening. They are happening and more than ever in fact. It’s just that fewer and fewer occur on the ‘aftermarket’ as most are now end user to end user. (Or soph investor to end user – these type of investors have strong hands and are not the sort to flog prized names on aftermarket sites).

    All of the above is what has been happening with also. is still about 4-6 years behind .com because there are still great names that can be bought on the drops, and because of this there are opportunities for investors.

    Because there *are* opportunities for investors, it means that most sales that end up reported are wholesale rather than sales to end users. (This is why sales results do not reflect the prices generally paid by end users).

    Whereas you are hard pressed to find a bargain on these days, there are bargains aplenty on and Netfleet most weeks.

    I would rather spend $2,500 or $5,000 on a domain name that I know is worth $30,000 to $50,000 than spend $30,000 to $50,000 on a .com domain name that I know is worth $100,000 to $200,000.

    Or $10,000 a domain name that I know is worth $100,000 minimum. There are 2-3 of these every month on the expired auctions.
