The Washington Post is reporting that the domain Startups.com, that we reported on earlier today as being sold to KillerStartups.com, sold for $500,000.
According to the reporter for the Post he spoke to CEO of Killerstartups.com who told him he acquired the domain for “mid six figures”.
The Post went ahead to assume that meant $500K and said “”That is within reason for a primo domain name.””
According to the same article startups.com raised $17.2 million back during the .com boom before shutting its doors in January 2002.

This is not the Wash. Post report but a techcrunch syndication. The original article is here:
Keep up the great work on the blog!
See you soon!
Hey Mike. He’s also speculating that it was $500k. . . The exact number was not given by Arzuaga.
“has acquired the domain Startups.com for “mid six figures” in cash, CEO Gonzalo Arzuaga tells me. So let’s call it $500,000. . .”
That is correct, thought the post reflected this but I guess not
Startups.com – is a nice .com for sure
didn’t know that killerstartups.com is doing so well…$500,000, that’s a lot of cash…
Good domain name….printed papers are dead.
