I want to share the content of an email I just received from Flippa announcing “an Exclusive One Day Masterclass.” The class promises to give students “access to never-before-seen data, tips and insights into how you can make more money from the web in 2015!” The class will be held at Flippa’s San Francisco office on Saturday, November 22, 2014 from 8:30 – 6:00pm.
Flippa currently has a limited time “early bird” offer price of $99 per ticket, and the EventBrite listing says there will only be 30 tickets sold at this price. The regular rate is listed at $499 for this class, which sounds a bit expensive to me.
According to the email, here are some of the topics that will be taught in this class: → Read More
Yesterday afternoon, various tech publications including TechCrunch wrote about a new Facebook app called “Rooms.” According to the Rooms page in the iTunes Store, “Rooms lets you create places for the things you’re passionate about. Pick a topic, customize the look and feel, be whoever you want to be and share with others. It’s perfect for the things you love and interests that make you unique.”
You can learn more about Rooms on TechCrunch and the other news outlets covering this, but the most interesting aspect to me is that Facebook is using a repurposed ccTLD, Rooms.ME, to promote its Rooms app. If you visit the Rooms.ME domain name, you can learn more about Facebook Rooms and find a link to visit the iTunes store to download Rooms for your iPhone or iPad.
As of September of this year, Rooms.ME was owned by → Read More
Sedo shared the results of its October Great Domains auction, and there were 11 domain names that met the reserve price and sold. The sales were both in USD and EUR, and over $100,000 worth of domain names were sold during this month’s auction.
A trio of three letter .com domain names were the largest sales at this auction, and several ccTLD domain names also sold. Since the auction ended this afternoon, I don’t believe these deals have completed yet at the time of this publication.

A week ago, many mainstream news articles were quite critical of Blue String Ventures and its owners for trying to sell the Ebola.com domain name. According to a Securities and Exchange Commission filing, a company called Weed Growth Fund, Inc. (formerly Ovation Research, Inc.) has acquired the Ebola.com domain name “for $50,000 cash and 19,192 shares of Cannabis Sativa, Inc. common stock owned by the Company.”
Cannabis Sativa, Inc. trades under the CBDS ticker symbol, and at the time of publication, it currently trades at $8.50/share. Based on the price of $8.50/share, the total value of the stock right now is $163,132, making this deal valued at over $200,000. According to the sale agreement also filed with the SEC, the seller needs to hold on to the shares of CBDS stock for a minimum of 6 months per SEC rules.

Today’s domain name broker and brokerage submitted listings are published below. If you want to buy or inquire about one of the domain names that was submitted, please contact the broker directly. I am not involved in any of these listings.
You may submit one domain name for sale in the comment section. The domain name must have a buy now price and it must be new to the market. The sale listing must only contain the following information: domain name, price, and contact information for the buyer. Please do not post comments about other people’s listings.
If these rules aren’t followed, I may add your email address to the “comment blacklist” meaning any further comments will automatically end up in the spam filter. Since there are generally hundreds or thousands of spam comments there, it probably won’t be seen, so please follow the rules.
Just as a reminder, you should do proper due diligence before buying a domain name here or anywhere. You should also use an escrow service like Escrow.com to complete your transaction. I do not verify any submissions (from brokers or from readers in the comment section), so buyers and sellers beware.
