Igloo.com: “sale of IG.com at $4.7 Million is not Igloos biggest sale to date”

iglooIgloo.com recently shared some exciting data supporting speculations within the industry regarding the predominance of unreported sales.

“While many sales are recorded on well-regarded industry blogs including DN Journal and Domaining.com, it is exceedingly rare that Igloo.com reports any sale, let alone the actual sale price of a domain name transaction.”

In her recent Domain Name Wire Podcast, Igloo.coms CEO Tessa Holcomb alluded to the fact that last years highest public sale of IG.com at $4.7 Million is not Igloos biggest sale to date. And, while the Guinness World Record Holder, Sex.com may not actually be the most expensive internet address domain name on record, its probable we may never know which is. Our clients are with us for our discretion and value their anonymity, said Holcomb. They appreciate that our Domain Advisors are able to work discreetly yet still achieve outstanding results.

In total, Igloos Domain Advisors have closed upwards of $120 Million dollars in domain name transactions and is pleased to have been associated in the sale or acquisition of some of the worlds most valuable domain names including those such as IG.com, CARD.com, AO.com, Top.com, Quote.com, Yoga.com, Mojo.com and Dragon.com to name a few. Like many, Igloo.com experienced tremendous growth in 2013 with gross sales of Intellectual Properties totaling over US $35 Million.

We were happy to offer the exclusive brokerage of the Top.com listing to Igloo.com after our previous positive experience during the sale of AO.com, says Alex Kistenev. Tessa was always communicative, thorough, but most importantly open and honest throughout the entire process. In the end, all parties to the sale were very pleased, and I credit that to Igloos market expertise.

Ben Katz, CEO and co-founder of CARD.com has had the opportunity to work with the team at Igloo.com upon several occasions. Our broker, Amanda reached out to me when I was working for another company. At the time she represented several great domain names and since I have long appreciated the value of a great domain, we kept in touch. The team at Igloo is not only reliable and efficient, but I also have appreciated their expertise in related legal nuances within the domain industry. I had expected professional representation to be too expensive to use for my smaller acquisitions, but I was wrong. At Igloo, I received the same professional-grade solutions and support during 4 and 5 figure domain sales as I did with a super-mega domain like CARD.com.

Igloo.com is currently representing a collection of ultra-premium, generic and brandable domains including Fashion.com, Realty.com, City.com, Cambridge.com, Temps.com, Vino.com, Visitor.com, QT.com and more.
