Second premium liquor keyword in .co sells in as many weeks.
Sedo has brokered the sale of Vodka.co
m for $10,000 to the same person who bought Tequila.co for $14,500 just a week ago.
Of course Vodka.com was one of the most expensive domain names ever sold. Legendary domainer Roy Messer sold it to a Russian vodka company for $3 million.
So who’s the mystery buyer snapping up these liquor domains?
No, it’s not a liquor company. It’s someone in the Czech Republic who has a penchant for high quality keyword .co domain names. The same person owns both Auctions.co and Beauty.co. He also owns some generic keywords in .asia.
The seller of the two liquor domains is someone in Bogota, Colombia, who likely got the domain names through the grandfathering process when .co was opened up at the second level.

It’s Vodka.CO, not .com 🙂

Bitters.com (not .co, though) was as well reported recently ($12.5K)
Andrew, just edit and correct that typo, it’s your blog! Unless, you intended it 🙂
smile, you should start using dnw.co to access your site….typing .com (when not ment) will go away
I already use dnw.co to access Andrew’s blog, it’s a very comfortable shortcut: 17 vs 5 chars 🙂
You can also use DNW.com. I usually visit from Domaining.
Still shorter 🙂
I think I know who it is. F T A
Try figuring that one out.
