Here's the The Lowdown from DN Journal,
updated daily
to fill you in on the latest buzz going around the domain name industry. 

The Lowdown is compiled by DN Journal Editor & Publisher Ron Jackson.

DotcomAgency's Ian Andrew Gets $358,000 for 33.com in Deal Brokered by DomainAdvisors.com  

Over the years Britain's Ian Andrew has sold hundreds of generic domains names through his company, DotcomAgency, but he decided to get some outside help to give one of his best domains special attention and it has paid off in a big way. DomainAdvisors.com (DA) has just closed a $358,000 sale of Andrew's 33.com in a deal brokered by DA Senior Adviser Gina Aubrey. The domain went to a buyer based in China where numeric domains are especially popular.

That is the highest numeric domain sale reported since we started tracking and verifying domain sales in the fall of 2003. Two other sales, both made in 2008, came close with each topping the $300,000 mark, but 33.com finished ahead of both. The previous leaders were 770.com, sold by Sedo for $343,208 and 173.com, sold by Moniker for $302,790.

Andrew was understandably delighted with DA's performance saying, ""DomainAdvisors has been a pleasure to work with. I have worked with Gina and DomainAdvisors CEO Tessa Holcomb (who also serves as Group General Manager for DomainAdvisors' parent company, PPX International) and they are efficient, flexible and deliver smooth fast transactions. I would highly recommend them."

Ms. Holcomb said, "“As a young company, DA is performing beyond expectations. We’ve completed over $4 million in sales this year. and we’re proud to have been chosen to exclusively market some of the most premium

domains available including Temps.com, Sizzle.com, QB.com, Lawyer.net and Lawyers.net and CreditCard.net to name a few."

There was some other news from PPX today when they announced an expansion of their DM Pro domain management service. Gregg McNair, Group Chairman for PPX. said, “Having proven our domain management system with some of the largest portfolio holders in the world, we are now meeting the requests of many mid-sized owners wanting to take advantage of our established platform.” 

McNair added,  “DM Pro clients will be serviced by their own personal advisor from our DA team. Jeffrey Gabriel, President of DA (having assumed new duties solely in the areas of domain parking, CPA and other special projects) will be spearheading the DM Pro initiative.
