Did 4.CN Acquire DN.com?
Last week, Domain Holdings was brokering the DN.com domain name, and Domain Holdings broker Giuseppe Graziano stated that it was the final day to submit bids to purchase the domain name. At the time of my article, the domain name was owned by Verio, and the asking price was $750,000.
It appears that the Whois has recently changed, and the new registrant is listed as 4.CN. In case you aren’t aware, 4.CN is a very domain name marketplace with a large presence in China. Up until a couple of days ago, the domain name was registered at Melbourne IT, and at the time of my article, the domain name resolved to a Domain Holdings inquiry form. At the present time, the domain name no longer resolves, although the DNS could still be propagating.
I recently reported on two other large sales of two letter .com domain names, MM.com and WW.com. A couple of people mentioned a 4.CN connection with those two domain names, but I am not sure if those sales are connected with this sale because of the different Whois information. In addition to those two recent sales, Mi.com was also recently sold for seven figures.
I reached out to Alan Dunn from Domain Holdings, and I was told, “We can confirm the domain name is no longer for sale but unable to discuss any more details.”
