The asking price was not mentioned in today’s press release, but based on the statement that “Domain Holdings anticipates this category defining premium name will command one of the highest finance related domain sales in history,” and the references to the seven figure sales of Fund.com, Investing.com, and PersonalLoans.com, it appears they believe it will sell for north of $2.5 million.
At the present time, Capital.com is used as a credit card comparison website. I am not sure who owns the domain name, but the registrant email address is @americancapital.com, and American Capital is a publicly traded private equity firm whose stock trades on the NASDAQ market.
In case you have an interest in discussing this domain name with someone from DH, the press release is below with contact information for the brokers.
Domain Holdings Group, a fast growing Internet company located in Delray Beach, FL, is a world-class leader in premium domain brokerage and monetization. Domain Holdings recently announced an exclusive premium domain offering – Capital.com.
“Capital.com is an extremely rare premium generic domain name. Premium generics in the financial sector have historically commanded high-end prices” stated Steve Smith, Domain Holdings Senior Domain Broker. “Capital.com is a gem of a name, which is one of a handful of super premium domains now available on the aftermarket.”
Capital.com overlaps various different vertical markets, including: global financial institutions, banks, credit card companies, and venture capital firms. These are among the market of potential buyers Domain Holdings Group will be targeting.
Domain Holdings’ co-founder Chad Folkening, who is a pioneer in the domain industry stated, “Several well known Capital related companies spend billions a year on advertising. Owning and using a one of a kind and powerful brand such as Capital.com is a great short and long term investment. Capital.com is by far the most memorable name and can be branded across many different global industries”
The premium domain aftermarket is active and Domain Holdings anticipates this category defining premium name will command one of the highest finance related domain sales in history. In 2012, there were two reported finance related domain sales which achieved seven (7) figures, lead by the sale of Investing.com at $2.45M. Domain Holdings specializes in the brokerage of premium generic domains and brokered several seven (7) figure premium domain name transactions last year that were not reported due to non-disclosure agreements.
