The two letter GJ.com domain name was up for auction on NameJet this week, and the auction concluded today. The domain name sold for $694,095. This is the largest sale at NameJet in 2015, and it may be the largest sale of all time on the auction platform.
Once the GJ.com sale is closed, it should rank as the fourth largest public sale of the year on DNJournal, following the sales of Porno.com, 345.com, and the 7 figure sale of PX.com (which should be added in the next report).
There were 211 bidders who were either bidding in or following the GJ.com auction and 254 bids were placed. There were 5 bidders who placed bids above half a million dollars. The auction was a public auction, meaning bidders did not need to backorder the domain name in advance in order to participate.
GJ.com is the third 2 letter .com domain name to come up for auction at NameJet in the last two months. In July, SX.com sold for $555,050. Last month, XR.com was up for auction and did not hit the reserve price. In that auction, the high bid was $554,000.
It looks like the winner of the SX.com auction is also the winner of the GJ.com auction. The high bidder in the XR.com auction appears to be unrelated though.
