B.et Domain Hack Sold for $100k


This morning, NameBio reported that the B.et domain hack was sold for $100,000. I do not know if the domain name was listed for sale via Sedo or if the domain name sold in private and the parties chose to use Sedo for escrow. The domain name was sold by DomainHacks.com via Sedo, according to the tweet:

A domain hack is a domain name that contains a word when combining the SLD (second-level domain) with the TLD (top level domain). B.et would be considered a domain hack for the word, “bet.” The .ET extension is the ccTLD for the country of Ethiopia.

Because the Whois record is obscured, it is not possible to see who the new registrant of B.et is. However, if you visit B.et, you can see the Bet.me website.

Domain hacks change hands on a frequent basis, but I don’t recall seeing many sell for six figures.
