The DAE.com domain name expired in mid-October, and the domain name went to auction at GoDaddy Auctions. The auction for this 24 year old 3 letter .com domain name ended this afternoon, and DAE.com was sold for $126,000:
There were 185 bids from 26 bidders in this expired domain name auction. There were three bidders who battled for this domain name above $50,000. According to the DNJournal year to date sale report, the sale of DAE.com is one of the six largest 3 letter .com domain name sales of the year so far, just behind the $130,000 sale of GME.com.
Unfortunately, GoDaddy does not report its auction results or sale prices, so there may not be any confirmation that the transaction completes for the auction sale price. Additionally, it may not be reported in the DNJournal sales report unless third party payment confirmation is received. Regardless of this, because the auction ended today, the sale has not yet closed and should not be considered a completed transaction.
