OrangeJuice.com Sells For $44,800 On NameJet.com

The much hyped no reserve auction just ended at NameJet.com for the domain name OrangeJuice.com with a winning bid of $44,800. Although there were 517 people in the auction only 7 were willing to bid $20K or more for the domain. The domain was advertised on the front page of NameJet.com with a banner ad for a few weeks and I even received an email from Network Solutions (a NameJet.com partner) promoting the auction. The winner of the auction goes by the handle of pertevniyal. We have been running a poll on what this domain would sell for and if you voted you can see the results on the right. At the end of the day I didn’t bid on the domain since you can’t sell the product online, there isn’t much development potential IMHO leaving just the resale to one of the big boys as an option which I assume the seller would have done, if he could, in his many years of ownership
