Domain broker James Booth has been operating his domain brokerage under the Phenom.com branding since mid-2019. About a month ago, I noticed that Phenom.com had begun forwarding to DomainBooth.com, and I privately learned that the domain name had been sold. At the time, I did not know who acquired the domain name, but I can now report that a HR company called Phenom People made the six figure acquisition.
In my morning Name Server Alert email from DomainTools, I saw the valuable Acoustic.com domain name had changed hands. Acoustic.com is now registered to International Business Machines Corporation (IBM). Although the domain name does not resolve to a website at the time of publication, I am sure the domain name will be used by the business currently operating on Acoustic.CO.
The launch of Acoustic was announced in a press release in June of 2019. Acoustic was a rebrand and independent launch of IBM’s Watson Marketing. Here’s an excerpt from the press release describing what Acoustic is:
In my DomainTools Registrant Monitor alert email this morning, I saw that IGTV.com has been acquired by Instagram. The domain name was appears to have been previously registered to an entity in California, and it had been parked using Sedo’s nameservers. Instagram is often referred to as “IG,” so the domain name acquisition makes sense. As of the time of publication, IGTV.com does not resolve to an operational website.
Sedo hit the proverbial jackpot this week with the $150,000 sale of BettingTips.com. The sale was reported to me this afternoon in Sedo’s weekly public domain name sales report, and NameBio tweeted about the sale when it hit the Sedo RSS feed earlier this morning:

Uniregistry shared its weekly domain name sales report, and the company announced it brokered the sale of BTI.com for $100,000. The deal was co-brokered between Uniregistry and DomainBooth.com, the brokerage operated by James Booth. The domain was acquired by James Booth in September of 2019 for an undisclosed amount of money:
