According to post on Boston.com, the domain names/sites Boston.com, BostonGlobe.com and Globe.com may soon be available for sale.
“Even without daily traffic Boston.com gets, the URL alone would almost certainly be valued in the six or seven figures for a patient seller. ”
“With their current traffic, Boston.com and BostonGlobe.com would be worth quite a bit more says Ken Doctor, who often writes on the media industry, told the Herald Boston.com could be worth as much as $50 million if spun off separately, which the New York Times has indicated it is not considering doing.”
Globe.com currently just redirects to BostonGlobe.com.
One other domain item the story didn’t cover is the new gTLD application for .Boston which was also applied for by the Boston Globe. The new gTLD .Boston which had the backing of the city may or may not be of interest to the buyer of the Boston Globe publication.
So what you do you think Boston.com is worth?
