Well the hottest topic of the week and one of hot issues coming out of the election season is “Fake News”.
The topic does not seem to be going away anytime soon
We made contact in the last couple of days with the representatives of the domain name FakeNews.com as well as the new gTLD domain name Fake.News.
The response I received from the representative of FakeNews.com after filling out the above form was:
“The owners have considered several 5 figure offers in the past 30 days, and they have declined.
We are expecting a low 6-figure sum at this time.”
The new gTLD domain name Fake.News is owned by the registry Rightside and I got a quote of $175,000 with a renewal of $30 a year.
Of course the .com renews at normal .com prices.
According to Alexa FakeNews.com has an rank in the US of 304,789 and 1,674,970 globally.
The new gTLD domain name Fake.News, although does not resolve, has an Global Alexa rank of 11,659,662.
The potential of both domains is huge if either was developed into a site and has the possibility of getting mainstream news coverage, fake or otherwise.
So if you had your pick which would you go for or a six figure purchase price?
Or would you buy both?
Or would you pass on both?
