Hearst Buys Pilot.com for $300,000

Media company buys domain name Pilot.com.

Media conglomerate Hearst has purchased the domain name Pilot.com for $300,000. Hearst is well known for publications such as Cosmopolitan, Esquire, and the San Francisco Chronicle. A review of Hearst’s products does not show much related to “Pilot”, so we’ll have to wait to see what the company is up to. Domain brokerage Sedo handled the transaction from a private seller.

Sedo also brokered the sale of Nasty.com for $200,000 to a different buyer. That domain is still in the transfer process. Another buyer picked up NoStrings.com and NoStringsAttached.com for a total of $75,000.

[Note: The original title of this post, which was up for less than an hour, may have been misunderstood to suggest that Hearst bought both Pilot.com and Nasty.com. Of course, it only bought Pilot.com.]
