Daily Poll: Chicago.com Deal (Assuming it was $1 Million)


Chicago.com was sold a couple of years ago, and George Kirikos found an IRS filing that seems to indicate it was bought for $1 million. Assuming the million dollar figure is accurate, this sale would be one of the largest reported geodomain name sales.

Chicago is one of the largest cities in the US, and it is one of the most visited cities as well. I have been several times (mostly for work when I had a corporate job), and I had a great time visiting friends in Chicago a few Summers ago.

Assuming the purchase price was $1 million, how would you describe this sale?

  1. The sale price of 1M is at least 10 times cheaper. I suspect the sale to be around 10million minimum. The seller probably got compensated through other means as well. If it only 1M then the seller must have part sold and donated for a good cause as the buyer is the community trust which is not for profit.- DomainAstro.com, AroChemicals.com
