Anything.com, a domain Investment company that owns a portfolio of high value domain name assets, has sold the Medicine.com domain name. The sale of Medicine.com was first reported by Jamie Zoch in a tweet earlier this morning:

I reached out to Jason Schaeffer, an attorney who has represented Anything.com in the past. He advised me that he could not comment, but did confirm the public reports that domain name was sold. I also reached out to Larry Fischer and Ari Goldberger to ask about the sale, but they were unavailable when I published this post. Based on past sales from the company, I am pretty sure the company will not publicly comment about the sale.
The current registrant of the domain name appears to be a company called Hampstead Trust. I could not find any details about the company that acquired the domain name. When I visited Medicine.com today, I saw a message that indicates the website will launch in the second quarter of this year. I submitted my email address to get updates about the website.
If I were to guess about the sale price, I would guess that it was a seven figure deal, possibly mid seven figures. Medicine.com is a great domain name, and it will be interesting to see how it will be used since medicine is such a regulated business.
I can confirm this is an extremely valuable blockbuster .com. Hope it doesn’t get wasted.
Hampstead Trust of New Zealand appears to have a trademark on Question.com.
Hampstead Trust owns Drugs.com. So Medicine.com is a valuable addition to the portfolio.
