One letter Isle of Man domain may sell for $20,000 at Sedo.
The domain name K.im has a $20,000 offer at Sedo, and an “auction” for the domain name ends tomorrow.
.IM is the country code top level domain for Isle of Man.
According to DNSalePrice, a handful of .im domain names have sold over the years, with the top reported sale being Mobile.im for $7,000 back in 2008. If that’s the case, then this would be the largest public .im sale of all time.
That assumes it goes through. The current bidder had to complete “Premium Certification” in order to bid, which means sending in a bank statement or utility bill from within the last 60 days and a
government issued photo ID (passport, drivers license, etc). So it’s likely the bidder is legit, although sometimes accidental bids are placed.
Who would want to buy k.im? Perhaps a wealthy person or celebrity, such as Mega founder Kim Dotcom. Or maybe Kim Kardashian learned a thing or two about domain names at Webfest?
