Once the sale is archived on DNJournal by Ron Jackson, it will rank as the fifth largest sale of the year (to date). The sale will rank above the $550,000 sale of Inception.com and below the $750,000 sale of Liquid.com.
According to NameBio, Christian.com last publicly sold in 2009 for the same $600,000 price. Because the domain name has had privacy enabled on the Whois registration, I am unsure if the same registrant that bought the domain name in 2009 sold it this week.
It appears that Christian.com had been owned by a company in Russia. At the moment, Christian.com is in Sedo’s escrow account, so the buyer is not yet known. It will be interesting to see if the domain name is acquired because of its religious meaning or if it was acquired as an unrelated brand name.
