Moniker Closes Year's 2nd Biggest Domain Sale + ICANN Forced to Delay New TLD Application Deadline:

Moniker Closes Year's 2nd Biggest Domain Sale + ICANN Forced to Delay New TLD Application Deadline:

Moniker.com has closed a $500,000 sale of Jackpot.com . When we chart the sale in our next weekly report Wednesday (April 18) it will rank as the second biggest sale reported year to date (assuming, of course, that no larger sales are reported between now and then), trailing only PersonalLoans.com , a domain that sold through DomainNamesSales.com in February for $1,000,000 . You may recall that Jackpot.com was offered in the DOMAINfest Global 2012 live auction in February with an estimated price range of $750,000-$1,000,000. It did not sell but Moniker kept working the name and found a buyer whose 500K offer was enough to persuade the owner to cash in. Moniker's John Mauriello told me they sold some other high end names from the auction after the event but those are subject to NDAs.
