MLB buys domain name for Cubs and other end user domain name purchases.
The Chicago Cubs (technically MLB Advanced Media, L.P.) were among those companies buying domain names last week.
The team and Major League Baseball paid $1,700 for MyCubs.com. This is the name of their season ticket holder portal.
It looks like MLB uses this same name for more clubs (e.g. MyBrewers) , which means MLB might try to acquire the other domain names.
Here are other domain names sold to “end users” via GoDaddy/Afternic last week. (View previous end user sales here.)
EveryDayCounts.com $40,000 – The owner of every-day-counts.com dropped the hyphens for a mere forty grand.
WeedShops.com $18,000 – Colorado marijuana store Frosted Leaf. Business must be good.
TryAll.com $2,000 – Tryall Club, a Jamaica country club. It uses TryAllClub.com. While it’s buying domains it might want to pick up TryAll.club.
Best-Body.com $4,995 – Diet and nutrition company Fitnesshotline GmbH. It runs the website best-body-nutrition.com.
AllegiantTheMovie.com $1,000 – Law firm Sheppard Mullin bought this, presumably for someone involved with the planned movie.
