Not a high-dollar sale but a name with some development potential, we recently sold….
ZonaFutbol.com (soccer zone in Spanish)
to an advertising agency in Miami – MarcaMiami
While Starbucks has 2000+ domains in their portfolio, they are AWFUL at defensive domains, or even going after their brand terms
Case in point…
@jamie, 2828.com seems to have been sold recently. the owner was not very open to offers so i am guessing this can be a 6 figures sale.
also, telepathy seems to have sold to a chinese buyer a group of LLL.com composed of double “Y”:
average price was $50k
