Rick Schwartz a/k/a the Domain King has done it again, setting yet another record selling the domain name 9595.com for $180,000.
This is the highest reported four number (NNNN.com) domain sale of all time and only the 5th reported NNNN.com domain to sell in the six figures.
Rick hand-registered the domain name in 1998 for $70.
The only four number domain names that sold in the six figures before this sale were:
0060.com sold for $120,000 in December 2014.
8788.com sold for $106,000 in February 2015 through DomainHoldings.
9555.com sold for $102,000 in April 2015 at though eNaming.
1001.com sold for $100,000 in December 2013 though Sedo.
So we are not just talking about a new record sale, but one which exceed the old record holder by some 50%.
Rick’s sale is also 80% higher than the sale of pretty similar domain name, 9555.com which just sold a few months ago.
Rick sold the domain name Porno.com for $8,888,888 back in February this year, which set a few other records and is still the highest reported domain sale of 2015 (with my 345.com coming in 2nd at $800K).
Congrats to the King and the power of “No”
