Video.us has sold on domain aftermarket Afternic for $75,000.
Video.us has set a record for publicly announced .us domain name sales at $75,000. The transaction was executed through Afternic and was completed today, according to the sales logs at Afternic.com.
.Us is the country code domain name for The United States. .Us has grown in popularity and there have been many five figure sales. Large companies have started to embrace the .us extension, and Volvo has even advertised its Volvo.us domain name in TV commercials.
Other high prices realized for .us domain names include Models.us for $30,000, Jew.us for $29,500, and Football.us $18,510.
City.us domain names often attract offers in the $5,000-$10,000 range. I have personally bought a number of .us domains that have direct applicability and potential business uses, such as Wifi.us and Prefab.us. Video is certainly a hot topic these days with video search, video content (e.g. YouTube), video on wireless devices, and video offerings from traditional phone companies.
The whois for Video.us still shows the previous owner, AdoptableDomains.com, and the domain currently resolves to Sedo parking. It is unclear who the buyer is.
