Aura paid over $133,000 for the homeloan.com.au” and $33,000 for homeloancalculator.com.au
Homeloancalculator.com.au, was a drop domain name, and according to the story is the “second-highest price ever paid for a URL (.com.au) bought after a name lapse.
“Aura Capital director Calvin Ng told SmartCompany both purchases were “purely opportunistic”, although the business does have investments in home loan companies and services.
“We haven’t determined the exact strategy for these yet, it’s opportunistic,” he says. “The guy who owned the calculator URL had let it lapse, and so we just snapped it up.”
