The domain name XND.com just transferred to a new owner yesterday, someone in China.
A three letter .com finding its way to China is certain not news, but what is really interesting about this domain is that is sold back in January 2010 for $10,500.
The domain name according to Domaintools.com has been sitting in escrow every since.
That’s right over 6 1/2 years:
Here is how the whois record looked until just yesterday according to DomainTools:
Domain Name: XND.COM
Update Date: 2010-11-16T05:48:37Z
Creation Date: 2000-01-09T13:27:32Z

So did this domain really sit in escrow for what I would guess would be a record 6 1/2 years?
