Media Options Confirms Sale of EG.com

9

In a tweet this morning, George Kirikos mentioned that the two letter EG.com domain name had changed status. The domain name status had changed to unlocked, which could be a prelude to a domain transfer, possibly indicating that a sale had taken place.

EG.com is owned by Media Options, and it has been owned by the Panama-based company for several months. I reached out to Media Options CEO Andrew Rosener, and he confirmed that the domain name has been sold. Andrew told me, “I can confirm we sold EG.com. After the purchase of MJ.com.” The company owns 4 LL.com domain names, and once the sale is complete, it will be down to 3.

Andrew would not comment on the sale price of EG.com, so it looks like this will not be reported publicly and stay off the sales charts. He also would not share any information about the buyer of the domain name. I believe this is one of Media Options’ three LL.com domain name sales I mentioned on Sunday.

One thing I noticed is that EG.com is still listed on Afternic with a price of $899,000. My guess would be that EG.com sold somewhere close to its asking price. I am sure the listing will be taken down at some point very soon.

Thanks to George Kirikos for sharing this.

    If my memory serves me right it was listed for a little under 500K with few brokers. No idea what it was sold for but I would guess for something around that range.

      I am afraid your memory does not serve you as it used to in 2010.

    I started writing a post right after you announced the sale speculating on who the buyer might be but before I could finish it WHOIS has already updated.

    I finished the post with the updated info. and I think I was on the right track that the name will be used for the new home of Evil Geniuses .gg

      Good try, but I am quite sure you are incorrect and that Finlead is not associated with that company.

      Interesting.

      Does “quite sure” mean you know already?

      And with respect to your experience and connections, I’ll have to yield until we know for sure.

      I would simply ask what other Finlead names do you know about are being used by other companies?

      As far as I know, they are an independent company that buys valuable domain names.
