A good deal or a reality check of the domain market?
Afternic just brokered the sale of WirelessPhones.com for $70,000.
The name rang a bell, so I started searching around. As it turns out, I wrote about an auction for WirelessPhone.com (singular) back in 2006. The domain sold for $355,000 to a domain investor back then.
So let’s be honest, here. WirelessPhones.com is a better domain than the singular version. And it just sold for 1/5th of what the singular version sold for in 2006.
Is this a) a symbol of the excesses of the domain market before the crash or b) changing nomenclature around mobile phones or c) just a freak occurrence (either the previous sale or this one).
You tell me.
The buyer is a direct marketing company out of Charlotte, North Carolina.
