Aftermarket.com Sells Order.com in 6th Largest Public Sale of 2011
This evening, I learned about a large domain sale that was completed by Aftermarket.com and its Senior Domain Broker, Omar Kubba. Order.com was sold in a “mid-to-high six-figure sale,” which would rank as the 6th highest sale of the year, according to the Aftermarket.com press release posted below.
Although the final sales price was not released, we can surmise the price was somewhere between $525,000 and $700,000 based on the current DNJournal year to date sales chart covering public domain sales. According to the current Whois information, the buyer of the domain name was Delivery.com, a delivery service for restaurants and stores.
Details about how the deal was consummated were not released. The sale was completed last week, and Order.com already forwards to Delivery.com.
Congratulations to Aftermarket.com and to Shai Neubauer, the seller of Order.com.
LOS ANGELES, CA –(BUSINESS WIRE)– Aftermarket.com celebrates its first birthday with the successful brokerage of Order.com. The mid-to-high six-figure sale, which closed last week, ranks as the 6th highest domain sale of the year, according to DNJournal.com.
The transaction was led by Omar Kubba, Senior Domain Broker for Aftermarket.com’s recently-launched Brokerage division. Aftermarket.com’s Brokerage division was formed specifically to cater to premium, highly-sought-after domain assets, domain names and websites that typically require a high level of hands-on involvement and personal attention due to the premium price tags and sophisticated clientele.
Senior Domain Broker, Omar Kubba, who heads the Brokerage division, views Aftermarket.com’s involvement in the premium domain space a must, commenting that, “Quality domain names above a certain price point often require a seasoned and professional team in order to complete the sale. Our brokers are dedicated to identifying investors and end-users that are committed and understand the long-term value of a premium, one-of-a-kind domain asset.”
As with any relatively new asset class, many of those outside of the domain industry are either unaware of or do not fully understand the true value of a solid domain name. Aftermarket.com brokers educate and evangelize throughout the sales process, reaching out to and working with buyers at all levels, from Fortune 100 companies to small business owners to individual investors. The quick turnaround and flawless execution of the Order.com transaction evidences that philosophy, and further solidifies Aftermarket.com’s unique position in the domain name industry. According to Kubba, “The new owner of Order.com had the savvy and foresight to purchase an asset that will not only appreciate over time, but one that will also add tremendous value to their already-successful business. They understood that there’s only one Order.com in the world, and now they own it.”
Shai Neubauer, the previous owner of Order.com, approached Aftermarket.com after exhausting several other avenues of representation. He knew of the Company’s solid reputation and decided to give the newly-formed Brokerage division an opportunity. “I’ve used all of the known domain industry brokers at one time or another; however, Aftermarket.com was the only company able to open the door to appropriate and qualified end users. Omar Kubba worked harder than anyone else and really went the extra mile to get the absolute best offer on my domain. His knowledge, persistence, and connections really made the difference,” said Neubauer.
Recent enhancements to the Aftermarket.com platform further assisted Kubba in successfully concluding the Order.com transaction. The newly-launched, proprietary Aftermarket.com broker system enabled Kubba to create a central web presence for all of his domain name listings, making it possible to provide a robust, secure, and professional hub for all interested parties.
