This morning, Jamie Zoch announced that it appeared AT&T sold Prodigy.com, a domain name the company has owned since its involvement with the defunct Prodigy company. Prodigy.com was first created back in 1992, and AT&T offered an email service on the Prodigy.net domain name for quite some time:
I don’t think anybody reported this… but it appears that AT&T has sold the premium generic domain name https://t.co/IY76mzMwiZ . The domain resolves to a coming soon page for “Prodigy Education” currently. The domain transferred to GoDaddy under privacy on July 14, 2020.

A few moments ago, Media Options founder Andrew Rosener announced that his company brokered the sale of Prodigy.com:
Congrats to @ProdigyGame on their amazing acquisition of https://t.co/FdVbvMVOJh! Very proud that our team @MediaOptions was able to make this happen. Incredible domain with valuable legacy got into the best possible end user’s hands. #OffTheMarketForever #domainnames

The buyer of the domain name was, as Jamie correctly guessed, Prodigy Education. The company has been using ProdigyGame.com for its website. I reached out to Andrew to see if he could share additional details, but unfortunately the price is going to remain private. Media Options represented the buyer in this transaction.
At the time of publication, Prodigy Education has not yet made use of Prodigy.com. The company has a coming soon landing page on the domain name, while ProdigyGame.com continues to serve as the company’s website.
