Files.com sold about a decade ago for about the same amount of money.
Name Ninja Bill Sweetman and Sedo have helped broker the sale of Files.com for $750,000.
I’m thrilled to announce that @NameNinja brokered, in collaboration with @Sedo, the purchase of the ultra-premium domain name https://t.co/m0HkGHWLMM for $750,000 USD. Congratulations to Buyer and Seller, and big thanks to Sedo seller broker @FrankTillmanns. #naming #dotcomisking

While that’s a nice price for the domain, it doesn’t appear to be a windfall for the seller. Files.com last traded hands publicly in late 2009 or early 2010. It sold on Sedo for $725,000.
The Whois records have been private since then. Assuming it was the same owner, they didn’t make out well on this domain even if $750,000 was net of transaction fees.
