The domain name iPets.com closed at $12,777 on NameJet on Friday. This was the top close across all platforms on Friday according to Namebio.
While some might think wow nice price! The domain actually sold for much more back in 2008. iPets.com sold for $75,000 on Afternic.
The buyer was Cambridge Mass based Virtual Goods Market, which also operated as Viximo.
Viximo was acquired in 2016 by Pocket Games for $3.5 million.
The domain never even updated it’s nameservers for the past decade, it remained at:
Name Server: CUSTOMER.BUYDOMAINS.COM Name Server: CUSTOMER2.BUYDOMAINS.COM
The domain was probably never needed and got lost in the takeover shuffle. So a decade later a difference of $62,223.
