Impact Voice.com Sale Will Have on My Business

10

By now, you have read about the $30 million cash sale of Voice.com. From what I have been reading, it is the largest domain name sale of all time when considering the domain name was acquired on its own, without any website, business, or other goodwill. It is a monster deal, but the impact on my business will be relatively minimal.

The sale of Voice.com is record breaking and inspiring. My company has quite a few one word .com domain names, but I am not racing to reprice them.

Undeveloped, a domain name sales platform and marketplace, announced it was undergoing a rebranding. The company will now be known as DAN.com, which stands for Domain Automation Network. The news was announced in a press release this afternoon, and additional commentary about the rebrand was also announced in a Medium blog post written by founder Reza Sardeha.

Here’s an excerpt from the press release that provides a high level look at what the company plans to accomplish with its Domain Automation Network:

According to a tweet this morning from Sedo broker Dave Evanson, Casinos.org was sold for $400,000. I think it is safe to assume the deal was brokered by Dave:

Voice.com Domain Name Acquired for $30 Million (Updated)

At the end of May, I noticed that the Voice.com domain name had transferred to GoDaddy under privacy proxy. I wondered if MicroStrategy had sold the domain name, and it was later learned that it had been acquired by a startup called Block.One. The company announced that Voice would become “a blockchain-based social media application.” Voice.com is clearly a valuable domain name, and today we learned just how much it cost to acquire it.
