    would be curios to hear the negotiations back story on how selfmade.com ended up selling for such a high mark through godaddy within weeks of them practically giving away mumbai.com, skates.com, nip.com, etc by comparison.

  2. Dom

    Any idea if these were domains Go daddy owned and sold or brokered on behalf of customers? We’re they sold through the Domain Buy Service?

  3. Araf

    Damage control list to try and reduce the mass migrations GD is seeing. Stoff & Stil had no idea they were going to be used as this week’s defensive shielding. You doing a piece on the Oxley thefts Andrew? Hottest topic in the industry now!

  4. Nick

    This list has the weirdest prices I’ve seen in a while. bontu for $62,400 , wow i gotta raise my prices again, that’s like a bad brandbucket name . And a real word like dabble for only $75K, that’s crazy low.

  5. Richard B Morris

    and to think…i bought Selfmade.solutions for $4.99 right after I saw where selfmade.com just sold for almost a million dollars. WTFiddle.com☺
