There have been A LOT of movements on 2 letter .com domain names the past two days starting on September 10, 2015 and continues into today, September 11, 2015, so I wanted to make you aware of the movements as some may be sold.
The majority of movements detected include a “status” update in whois records, and this can indicate a domain name may have been “unlocked” for transfer and this can be an early indicator to a potential sale.
FF.com, a domain name owned by Bank Of America has had a whois update to “OK” in whois records. This potentially could mean the domain name is in the process of changing ownership? The domain currently doesn’t resolve and is registered at CSC Corporate domains. Was FF.com sold? I think so!
YB.com has transferred from GoDaddy to eName. The domain name was owned by YB.com Inc. with an email address of email@example.com and whois records are now showing zhiqiangjin of China. This domain name very likely has been SOLD.
XL.com, owned by XL Airways France at Network Solutions had a whois update status to “OK”. I’m not sure this domain has sold, but may be in the process of simply transferring registrars?
XR.com has transferred from eName to GoDaddy.com. This domain name was listed for sale for $749,900 and this transfer may indicate the domain name has SOLD. eName does something with whois records as most services like DomainTools.com and others often have a hard time getting updated data, so this makes tracking domain names hard. All services I use are showing eName as the registrar but one other tool I use is showing the domain has transferred to GoDaddy. Visiting XR.com directly, which had a for sale lander on it, states “This domain is no longer available.” This domain has likely SOLD!
PK.com followed suit of XR.com and has transferred from eName to GoDaddy. The domain name is under privacy at GoDaddy currently, but likely SOLD!
YU.com has had a status update to “OK”, which again may indicate the domain name has potentially sold or is simply transferring or potentially something else. This domain is currently registered at eNom.
XB.com has had a status update to “OK”, again, similar to YU.com it may be transferring, sold etc. This domain is registered at Name.com using Moniker name servers.
Considering minimum wholesale on LL .com domain names has been north of $550,000 lately, these are Millions of dollars of potential domain name sales. If FF.com sold, that domain name alone could easily have been sold for $1M+ and potentially a lot more!
