In a big 4 letter .com sale, the domain CUNY.com sold for $30,050 on NameJet.com today.
CUNY stands for among other things, the City University of New York, which holds 3 trademarks on the term
The City seems to have owned this domain and let it drop, as it was pointed to Cuny.edu according to the wayback machine most recently and CUNY.Edu is the official site for the University system and the .Edu site gets over 1,000,000 visitors a month according to Compete.com
CUNY.com gets some traffic according to Compete.com of around 7,000 visitors a month.
The winning bidder goes by the handle of: 8d3e6emd52; so we have to wait to see if this one gets paid for.
Why would a cash strapped city and school system, just let this domain drop instead of selling it, is anyone’s guess but the usual answer in such situations is “it’s the government”.
NameJet.com seems to be picking up, with a few other nice sales from this week.
Visittnt.com, which looks like it was a travel site, possibly the official travel site for Trinidad and Tobago, sold for $5,500.
This domain according to Compete.com had between 3K-5K visitors a month.
Another domain with traffic according to Compete.com, PcShopper.com sold for $3,800.
Here are a few other NameJet.com sales from the last couple of days
