“BusinessServices.com” must be the finest ‘Business’ domain available for sale. A quick check on Google produced 1.23 billion returns for the search ‘business services’ In 1999 business.com sold for $7.5 million and was developed out and resold in 2007 for $345 million. The sale of BusinessServices.com must now surely present a serious commercial development opportunity.”
