DotcomAgency's Ian Andrew Gets $358,000 for 33.com in Deal Brokered by DomainAdvisors: Over the years Britain's
Over the years Britain's Ian Andrew has sold hundreds of generic domains names through his company, DotcomAgency , but he decided to get some outside help to give one of his best domains special attention and it has paid off in a big way. DomainAdvisors.com (DA) has just closed a $358,000 sale of Andrew's 33.com in a deal brokered by DA Senior Adviser Gina Aubrey . The domain went to a buyer based in China where numeric domains are especially popular. That is the highest numeric domain sale reported since we started tracking and verifying domain sales in the fall of 2003. Two other sales, both made in 2008, came close with each topping the $300,000 mark, but 33.com finished ahead of both. The previous leaders were 770.com , sold by Sedo for $343,208 and 173.com , sold by Moniker for $302,790 .
