Sedo announced the brokered sale of the domain name Partners.com for $125,000 USD.
The domain was first registered in 1993. The seller is Domain Capital that bought the domain name in 2006 for $130,000 in a sale brokered by Moniker. Whois has not yet been updated so the buyer is not yet known.
So the domain was sold at a $5,000 loss. But Sedo’s fee is another 15% or $18,750. So the total loss for the seller is $23,750. That is quite a loss for such premium domain name. Would you have sold this domain name for a loss? I wouldn’t.
