$1.1 million purchase may be just the beginning.
Boris Kreiman (and his company PhoneToPhone) has been confirmed as the buyer of Call.com. The better news is that he’s an end user, and he’s not done buying domain names.
I briefly connected with Kreiman on the phone this morning to learn about his plans for the site.
Kreiman runs a network of sites that connects consumers to professionals via the phone. An example is NewLawyer.com, where consumers can find a lawyer through the system and call them through the web site. He runs a similar service at NewDoctor.com. The businesses are doing quite well, so he doled out $1.1 million for Call.com. Instead of focusing on a niche like NewLawyer.com and NewDoctor.com, Kreiman says Call.com will be a general site for connecting with professionals for advice.
Kreiman clearly understands the power of a prime domain name, and he’s not done yet. He says we should hear about some other six (and potentially seven) figure domain name purchases he’s making in the next week or two.
