LOS ANGELES, Calif. (PRWEB) July 19, 2011
Moniker® and SnapNames®, both Oversee.net® companies, said today that sales of premium domain names from their June DOMAINfest Europe Auction have now exceeded $7.2 million and are expected to reach over $9 million as a result of the auction. Top contributing sales include the recently closed transaction for Social.com, for $2.6 million, and Data.com, for an officially undisclosed price that significantly exceeded its $1.5 million reserve.
The sale of Social.com is the largest publically reported domain name sale to date for 2011.
“These record domain name sales for Moniker are strong indicators that businesses are continuing to embrace generic domain names as strategic tools to build brand equity and enhance market presence,” said Craig Snyder, General Manager of Oversee’s Aftermarket Division. “With two of the largest sales happening before and after the DOMAINfest auction itself, sellers understand the power of leveraging our auction events to showcase premium domain names to corporate buyers.”
