Yesterday afternoon, Kate Buckley reported the sale of the Chocolate.com domain name via Twitter. Her company, Buckley Media, brokered the sale of the domain name:

I reached out to Kate privately to ask if she could share more information about the sale. Kate said both parties on the deal wish to remain anonymous, but it was a seven figure deal. She was able to share the following with me:
“Buckley Media announces they have brokered the sale of chocolate.com. “While the exact acquisition price is under a Non-Disclosure Agreement, I am free to tell you that it was in the mid-to-low-seven figures,” said Kate Buckley, CEO of Buckley Media.
Buckley Media, a branding and domains agency, will be working with the new owners (who wish to remain anonymous) on next steps.”
Chocolate.com is a fantastic domain name. Not only is the chocolate industry massive, but Chocolate.com could easily be used as a brand that is totally unrelated to the candy business.
If more details emerge, I will share an update. I am looking forward to seeing how the domain name will be used in the future.
