On the expired auctions yesterday, the domain RFM.com.au was purchased on the Netfleet platform for $17,050 (including GST and costs).
Based on having a few unsuccessful bids myself, I can also confirm that there was a reasonable level of bidding on the Drop platform, but on this occasion, Netfleet “got the cigar”. Well done to Nikki Scholes and her team.
According to the WhoIs, the buyer is Coolamon Steel, a company based in Coolamon which is a town in the Riverina region of NSW about 40kms north-west of Wagga Wagga. From what I can see, they currently have three major domain names that resolve to the one website. They obviously understand the benefits of “cyber property”! Congratulations to them.
I’m not sure what the acronym “RFM” is going to stand for, but I have reached out to the buyer. If I hear back, I will update this post.
Incidentally, RFM.net.au has been operated for over a decade by what appears to be an unrelated party (Regional Farmers Markets). So under proposed auDA priority rules, they will have first dibs on the RFM.au if and when it arrives.
