closed a $500,000 sale of Jackpot.com.
When we chart the sale in our next weekly
report Wednesday (April 18) it will
rank as the second biggest sale reported year
to date (assuming, of course, that
no larger sales are reported between now and
then), trailing only PersonalLoans.com, a
domain that sold through DomainNamesSales.com
in February for $1,000,000.
may recall that Jackpot.com was offered in the DOMAINfest
Global 2012 live auction in February
with an estimated price range of
$750,000-$1,000,000. It did not sell but Moniker
kept working the name and found a buyer whose
500K offer was enough to persuade the owner to
cash in. Moniker's John Mauriello
told me they sold some other high end names from
the auction after the event but those are
subject to NDAs.
