How Much Did Domain Name Cost?

When you have a chance, please take a look at and I think you will find the landing page interesting. Click on the left side, and you’re taken to the Bell Helicopter website. Click on the right side, and you’re taken to an Elsevier website. I believe both of these companies are publicly traded and very large.

If you don’t choose which page to click, visitors are automatically redirected to the Bell Helicopter website after waiting 15 seconds.

It appears that the domain name was transferred from Elsevier’s ownership sometime between August 30, 2010 and September 7, 2011,when Bell Helicopter became the domain registrant. I did some research, and I don’t see any information about the sale of the domain name, although I imagine it must have been sold for a good deal of money.

Other potential suiters for this valuable domain name may have been Berkshire Hathaway or BH Photo & Video, a HUGE photography store in New York City.  I wonder how long the companies will “share” the landing page, and if the domain sale/acquisition  will eventually be reported publicly.

Thanks to  George Kirikos  for the tip.

  1. Warren Buffet would have a heart attack if they paid the money this company probably paid to purchase this domain.

    Then again he was at JayZ’s club the other night.

  2. I am glad Owen Frager reads this because I want to tell him how misaligned his articles, and statements are.

    I know this is not nice, but why don’t you post something relevant, or factual, you twist your words, and sound like a self obsessed crazy man.

    I really wish your titles would go away from
