Sunday Tidbits

  • A blockbuster sale of the domain name + website was announced. Terms of the sale are not 100% clear but it was confirmed there was $4 million in cash plus equity going to the seller. DomainNameWire got in touch with the seller and not surprisingly it turns out he’s no rookie to high dollar domain sales.
  • What’s this? has expired and going to auction?? The ultra premium domain which was sold back in 2008 for a reported $10 million is at pre-release auction via NameJet. Surely, the registrant would not let this slip out of their possession… right?
  • ICM Registry recently launched a search engine for .XXX websites. According to a report released by ICM and shared by TheDomains, saw almost 8 million page views, over 1.4 million visits and more than 1.2 million unique visitors in the first week of existence.
  • The T.R.A.F.F.I.C. Conference is underway and the auction will be taking place tomorrow!  I wrote about the auction last week and I think it will be very interesting to see the results.  I have my eye on a few lots and have been confirmed as a phone bidder, looking forward to it!
  • The Broncos and Patriots are getting ready to clash this afternoon, GO Broncos!  My prediction is Broncos 34-27 in a shootout.  This is Peyton Manning’s chance to really prove he is back and we need a win to stay in the hunt for the division lead.  Are you watching football today?  Who are you rooting for??  Have a great Sunday!
