How Much Did BH.com Domain Name Cost?
When you have a chance, please take a look at BH.com and I think you will find the landing page interesting. Click on the left side, and you’re taken to the Bell Helicopter website. Click on the right side, and you’re taken to an Elsevier website. I believe both of these companies are publicly traded and very large.
If you don’t choose which page to click, visitors are automatically redirected to the Bell Helicopter website after waiting 15 seconds.
It appears that the BH.com domain name was transferred from Elsevier’s ownership sometime between August 30, 2010 and September 7, 2011,when Bell Helicopter became the domain registrant. I did some research, and I don’t see any information about the sale of the domain name, although I imagine it must have been sold for a good deal of money.
Other potential suiters for this valuable domain name may have been Berkshire Hathaway or BH Photo & Video, a HUGE photography store in New York City. I wonder how long the companies will “share” the landing page, and if the domain sale/acquisition will eventually be reported publicly.
Thanks to George Kirikos for the tip.
