An Example of Why People Still CyberSquat

Why do people still cybersquat ? That was a question posed a couple of weeks back on Namepros, and while I am not advocating it any way, I am going to give an example of how it still pays off in 2014.

PluralSight.in sold on Wednesday for $16,000. The domain was registered in July of 2013, by a gentleman in China who just listed himself as Jeff. No last name, just Jeff. Well just Jeff regged pluralsight.in which has several live trademarks, some before the name was registered and others registered after the domain registration.

The company Plural Sight was written up on Tech Crunch back in 2012 when it announced its first funding from the outside world. The company took in $27.5 million.

From the article:

Pluralsight, an online training resource targeting professional developers, is today announcing its first outside funding, courtesy of a $27.5 million investment from Insight Venture Partners. The additional capital will help Pluralsight fund the expansion of its course library and will be used for hiring.

Salt Lake City-based Pluralsight was founded back in 2004 by Aaron Skonnard (CEO), Fritz Onion (Editor in Chief), Keith Brown (CTO), and Bill Williams (who’s no longer there). The company got its start as a classroom training outfit that once involved sending out an instructor to a business or having employees attend a training event. Three years in, it shifted the business model from in-person training to online learning.

Read the full story here

The company has been active on the acquisition front as well, they purchased Digital Tutors for $45 million back in April.

So did being in China and just having the name Jeff help the .in registrant ? Perhaps the company figured it was simpler to purchase the name on a trusted exchange like Sedo, than to file a UDRP and have to deal with a registrant in another part of the world.

$16,000 is a significant amount of money for a handreg in the .in extension, only two .in extensions have sold for that much or better in 2013 or 2014 (Domains.in $40,000, Yum.in $16,000).

So while there is great risk in regging names like this and it is not recommended by anyone here, it sometimes pays off as the registrant gets what they were hoping for, the perfect buyer that has a lot of cash, who will just buy the domain.

Logics.com sells for $50,000

Logics.com just crossed the Sedo sales feed for $50,000

The domain was registered in 1996 and was recently owned by Advanced Logics Inc. out of  Clearwater Florida. Here is a link to a look at the site back in 2002

The buyer looks to be a company called Intellirose out of Chicago,Illinois.

TheFullStory.com Raises $1.2 Million After Buying The Domain In December for $2,477

The domain name TheFullStory.com was sold on Godaddy.com/Afternic.com in December last year for $2,477.

Today the company was covered by TechCrunch.com after raising $1.2 Million Dollars.

According to TechCrunch, TheFullStory.com is “trying to minimize those endless hours spent on the phone by capturing everything a user does on a company’s product using a simple script.

FullStory captures mouse movement, clicks, page transitions and more and allows for session playback for support teams to understand user flows.

The script begins recording the users movements once they are logged onto the website or app, but users can exclude themselves from being tracked

Then customer service teams can see a customer’s movements and allows them to identify bugs and send the playback session URL to the engineering team to fix.

Anyway it’s another brandable domain that is used in a way that most people would not imagine.

I wouldn’t have sold the domain for less than five figures.
