Dave Evanson of Sedo Brokers Jobs.CA for $450k

9

 

According to a tweet that was posted this evening by Sedo domain broker Dave Evanson, the company brokered the Jobs.CA domain name for $450,000. The domain name is registered to a company at a registrar called BareMetal.com, Inc., although I could not find the name of the current registrant in Whois records.

This sale will rank as the largest publicly reported ccTLD domain sale for the year, according to DNJournal’s year to date sales report. Congratulations to all parties on the transaction.

    Except the undeveloped domain was sold in May 2008 for $600,000.

    5 1/2 years later + development and marketing efforts = 25% loss, not including commission.

    BareMetal.com is the registrar, not the registrant.

      Jeff, it sucks to lose money on business deals but sometimes it happens. As I posted on a private forum earlier…

      “I try not to lose money on business deals and rarely do… but I have always lived by the philosophy of “it’s what you do with the money that matters”.

      What I never do …is stop trying!

      You are right about the registrar. I did not see the registrant’s name listed.

    Yes, it actually sold for a loss, but that is a large chunk of money to put into another project, or a house for that matter… who knows why they needed it… they did develop it out, but at the end of the day, I am sure the money could be put to better use for them, and they let someone with a fresh idea have it…

    If an individual registers a .CA domain, the CIRA registry does not show their details by default. (like a built-in whois privacy). If a business/organization, then contact details are listed.

    It’s interesting and unusual to see mention of BareMetal. I used them many years ago for one of the new TLD releases. It was some of the best and nicest dealing I’ve ever had of all time in the industry, so I thought I’d add that here. (Disclaimer: I have no association with them whatsoever, and I’m a US citizen in the US and always have been.) :)

    Even though a loss, still an impressive sale in today’s market imo
