Garry Chernoff Sells for $110k

Last week, I published an article about Garry Chernoff’s sale of, which is now reportedly owned by the founder of, Mark Lore. Although the sale of the domain name was private, I learned about another nice sale that Chernoff’s company (NetIncome Ventures) just closed. was sold for $110,000 in a deal brokered by Darryl Lopes at

When using a licensed escrow service, the domain name is protected in the event of a default, and the seller generally keeps any payment that had been made prior to default. had originally been acquired by Chernoff’s company in 1999 via Network Solutions drop. The buyer contacted Chernoff via the Domain Name Sales landing page, and the parties used Lopes as the broker.
