Dave Evanson: Circa.com Sold for $150k

According to a tweet this afternoon from Sedo domain broker Dave Evanson, Circa.com has sold for $150,000.

At the present time, it does not appear that the Whois information has been updated yet. It is currently registered to a company based in Nevada. If you visit Circa.com, you will see that there is not currently a functional website operating there. I presume that will change.

There are many companies called Circa, and there are thousands of domain names that have the word “circa” in them. It will be interesting to see which company was able to acquire the domain name. $150,000 for Circa.com seems like a good price for this very good domain name. I don’t see a record of Circa.com being marketed before, and NameBio does not have any archived sales information.

It’s only March, but the sale of Circa.com would rank as the 8th largest publicly reported sale of the year (on DNJournal’s year to date sales chart), tied with the sale of Genetics.com. This is also the largest publicly reported sale of the year at Sedo, beating out AWM.com, which sold for $99,750.

I’ll share an update when I see who acquired the domain name and how it will be used.

Update: As others have pointed out, the new registrant is a company called Circa, LLC. The Whois address is the same as a company called Sinclair Broadcast Group, Inc. According to a CNN Money article, “Sinclair Broadcast Group has acquired the recently defunct mobile news app Circa and plans to inject significant resources and capital into the company.”
