  1. “This price was for domain name only” = excellent ?

  2. they paid 1.8M for it in 2009, amazing company actually offered free shares in the 90’s, they turned up to be worth thousands to those who redeemed

    It makes sense for the to sell their unused assets for a fair price. Great sale, great domain. Thank you for the story Konstantinos.
