One of my favorite domain names has changed hands. Cool.com, which has been owned by Future Media Architects for many years, is pending transfer. The domain name was being brokered by Saw. I reached out to Amanda Waltz and Jeff Gabriel from Saw, and both confirmed that the domain name was sold.
As I recall, Cool.com had a high seven figure price tag. Neither Jeff nor Amanda were able to tell me the acquisition price, which is not a surprise. Commenting on the sale, Jeff said, “I can’t tell you the price but I can say that cool has always had a steady stream of interested buyers and we are excited to see it end up with a buyer who has a great plan.”
Jeff let me know the domain name was brokered by Kris Hou, a domain consultant working at Saw.
I will keep an eye on the Whois record to see who acquired the domain name. At the time of publication, the domain name is still pending transfer and is showing the Saw-customized Efty landing page.
