Three weeks ago we wrote this article about someone making a complaint against the premium generic domain name Link.com.au that caused it to drop.
Many questioned why and how auDA had approved the complaint after an auDRP against the name had failed.
Melbourne entrepreneur and domain investor Luke Smorgon, who purchased the name on the drops, just informed Domainer he has now sold the domain name;
Thought I’d share with you an update on link.com.au
We have just sold the domain name to the guys from The Link Collective for $66,000.
I know they got a bad rep from their auDRP case, but after dealing with James their CEO I can vouch they are a group of genuinely passionate entrepreneurs that just didn’t know what the right process was.
They are excited about building their business and were completely above board to deal with. They put their cards on the table about their desire to own the domain name and their willingness to purchase it.
After some negotiations we agreed on a price that I think represents great value for them and their brand, and I’m pleased to see another organisation who was eager to acquire their matching ‘.com.au’ domain name and pay an equitable amount for it and plan to put the name to good use.
A special mention to Erhan Karabardak who introduced James to us.
