Company gets proactive with domain sales.
But it appears that Microsoft might also be proactively selling some of its domain names.
Abdu Tarabichi noticed that the software giant has listed over 100 domain names for sale on domain marketplace Sedo.
If you type any of the domains into your browser, they’ll forward you to a page on fpq.biz, which then has a link to Sedo.
It’s not clear to me how long these domains have been listed on Sedo, as some of them have over 100 listing views and multiple offers. Interestingly, some are typos of domain names Microsoft uses.
Although the money Microsoft can generate from these domains is nothing big to such a large corporation, it’s nice to see it open up its treasure trove to people who may want to use the domains for a business.
