Company that bought stolen domain name finds an alternative.
“Because 2020”. That must be how the team at Stands4 felt after paying $180,000 for the stolen domain Calculator.com this year. It also spent $50,000 developing a site for the domain. Rather than let the development cost go to waste, Stands4 found a backup domain: Calculators.net. The company paid $12,500 to acquire the domain name at Sedo this past week.
It was one of 17 end user domain name sales I found on Sedo’s list this week. You can view previous lists like this here.
