Elliot Silver broke the news today that Elon Musk purchased the historic X.com domain name back from PayPal, the company he co-founded and previously was called X.com. If you don’t know this piece of internet history I can recommend this short video in which a young Elon talks about starting X.com (among other things). Elon got help from legendary domain name brokerage firm MediaOptions to buy back the domain that, as he tweeted, has great sentimental value to him.
Back to some more modest transactions, some brandable domain names that sold this week that I like include GoGirl.com, MoneyMaster.com and HireHero.com
Here’s this weeks list:
Please do keep in mind that these are the highest sales that have been reported at NameBio et al. This list is meant to help give you insights and is nowhere near complete as many sales are kept private and the major marketplaces specializing in brandable domains do not report their sales. Some domain name sales might not have been paid for yet.
If you know of any recent, verifiable brandable domain name sales please do let me know so I can include them in next week’s report.
