Rockies.com domain name goes up for sale
Tuesday, September 25th, 2012
Whether it’s for the baseball team for tourism, Rockies.com is now available for purchsae.
Major League Baseball may yet be able to get its hands on the Rockies.com domain name.
Domain Name Wire has confirmed that the owner of the site is trying to sell it.
The sales process is being managed by an outfit called Venture Capital Group Ltd, which tells Domain Name Wire that the domain name will officially be put up for sale later this week.
Venture Capital Group’s web site (which appears to be new given the July domain registration date) says:
Today’s emerging tourism and travel associations and business need powerful partners who have the ability to raise capital to help business with solid business plans advance. Venture Capital Group brings a wealth of experience to those looking to prosper.
Indeed, Rockies.com has been a site about the Rocky Mountains for many years. It is being offered for sale along with a number of Canadian domain names and web assets.
Major League Baseball owns all but five of its team names as .com domain names. One of those that’s obviously missing: Rockies.com for the Colorado Rockies.
Its most recent purchases have been Angels.com and Athletics.com. It picked up Angels.com for $200,000 in 2010. I suspect MLB would buy a domain name like Rockies.com for between $200,000 and $400,000.
