Yesterday morning, George Kirikos tweeted about the likely sale of HU.com, a two letter .com domain name that had been owned by GoDaddy via its NameFind portfolio company:
Another elite 2-letter dot-com domain name has changed hands, as https://t.co/T5Z4rAjmqM heads to China 🇨🇳 (where else?). It had been owned by GoDaddy’s NameFind division. pic.twitter.com/vCy9oKo1mm

This morning, I noticed that at least three other LL.com domain names appear to have been sold by GoDaddy. The change of ownership was detected by the DomainTools Registrant Monitor tool, and I saw these names in my morning Registrant Alert email. Here are the three names that appear to have been sold by GoDaddy / NameFind:
Using DomainIQ, it appears these three domain names and HU.com are all registered to Guta, the domain name brokerage and consulting firm operated by George Hong. I reached out to George yesterday when I saw HU.com transfer to his company, but he said he could not comment. It remains to be seen if he acquired the domain names on behalf of a client or for his own purposes.
Because GoDaddy does not share any sales information, it is highly unlikely that we will learn the sale prices of these domain names. If I do learn more – or if I hear about other LL.com domain names transferring, I will share an update.
Chinese printing money and buying up premium IP and hard assets… Smart cookies.
Thank you Elliot and as always thank you George. This is useful information.
Got to hit those quarterly revenue targets…
