Verdens Gang whose website is VG.no a Norwegian tabloid newspaper and was the second largest newspaper in Norway just published a story about By.com which is in the RightoftheDot.com auction at Namescon. By.com, as of publication of this postm has a high bid in pre-bidding on Namejet.com of $602,000
The original story that was written in Norwegian is here.
Its a very interesting story about the owner of the domain IT entrepreneur André Eidskrem who bought the domain in 1996 for around $5,000
Mr. Eidskrem is quoted as saying:
“At the time there was an awful lot of money to spend $5,000 on a domain, when it usually cost ten US dollars to register one.”
Nice to see a mainstream publication picking up the story on a rare two letter .com that also happens to be a word and a ccTLD.
