BuyDomains Now Owns Famous Domain Name

If you read or watch the news, one domain name is likely to stand out in the reporting: For those who haven’t been following the news reports, here’s information from the Wikipedia entry about DC Leaks:

“DCLeaks (also known as DC Leaks) is a website that was established in June 2016. Since its creation, it has been responsible for publishing leaks of emails belonging to multiple prominent figures in the United States government and military. Cybersecurity research firms say the site is a front for the Russian cyber-espionage group Fancy Bear. On July 13th, 2018, an indictment was made against 12 Russian GRU military officers; it alleges that DC Leaks is part of a Russian military operation.”

Interestingly, it looks like is now owned by BuyDomains, and the company has it listed for sale. The asking price of is $3,288. The company currently has it parked, where it is showing politics-related PPC links. It would be very interesting to know how much traffic the domain name gets with its notoriety – and how much money the domain name earns from PPC advertising.

I looked at NameBio, and I do not see any public sale listings for the domain name. I would imagine BuyDomains acquired it after it expired, although I am not sure if the domain name went to auction.

It will be interesting to see if someone buys the domain name, and if so, how it is used.
