Sold via Media Options

I recently detected that the domain name had transferred to GoDaddy. It was noteworthy because I knew that it had been listed for sale via Media Options for $2.5 million. Before sharing anything, I reached out to Andrew Rosener, CEO of Media Options, to see if his firm brokered the sale of Andrew confirmed the news to me but could not comment further:

This morning, Andrew publicly confirmed that Media Options brokered the sale of, in a tweet: has an interesting history. According to NameBio, the domain name previously sold for $9,999,950 in 2008. Based on the asking price mentioned in the Media Options newsletter, it would appear that the domain name must have sold for substantially less than its previous sale price.

At the time of publication, resolves to a default GoDaddy landing page. The Whois record lists the registrant as Koober Ltd, but much of the Whois record remains hidden due to GDPR regulations. I will keep an eye on to see how it is used in the future.
