Bird.com has been sold for $2.5 million at today’s Right of the Dot live domain name auction. Fish.com was the next domain name up for auction, and that domain name was sold for $1.6 million. Based on the location information shown on the bidding page, the winning bidder appears to be the same for both of these auctions.
Bird.com and Fish.com have long been owned by TABcom LLC. Bird.com does not resolve to an active website at the moment, but Fish.com has a fully developed business operating on it.
Once the payments for these domain names have been made and the domain name transfers are completed, I am sure ROTD will report the sales to DNJournal and NameBio for archiving. These will undoubtedly be two of the largest domain name sales of 2021. From my recollection, they are two of the largest live auction domain name sales in many years.
Update: According to an article in Domain Name Wire on May 11, 2021, a lawsuit has been filed by ROTD and the seller of Bird.com and Fish.com.
