Domain name appears to have been sold to pet food company.
It looks like CA (aka Computer Associates) has sold one of its prime domain names, Platinum.com.
Moniker has confirmed that it brokered the transaction and the sales price was $250,000.
The domain name was featured in Moniker’s DOMAINfest and Spring Auctions with a reserve range of $500,000 to $1,000,000.
The whois record for the domain name just changed to show that the domain now belongs to the German company that produces Platinum natural pet food products. The company currently uses the domain name Platinum-Natural.com. This is a nice upgrade!
I haven’t seen any notice of the sale nor a sales price. It’s not material enough for CA to have to disclose it in any upcoming reports. Moniker confirmed a $250,000 sales price.
CA has listed numerous other domain names with Moniker in recent auctions, including Security.com, 1800business.com, and Cheyenne.com. Most of these domains came with acquisitions. Platinum.com came with the acquisition of Platinum Technology in 1999.
