According to a tweet earlier this morning from James Booth, IJ.com was sold for $550,000.

Based on what I can see, it appears that IJ.com was acquired by a Chinese company. The domain name does not yet resolve to an active website, but there’s a message on the landing page indicating that one is coming soon:
“Sorry, the website is unable to access for the moment. According to the filing requirements of China’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT), the website is accessible only if the ICP information is accurate and the ICP license is filed.Please contact the person in charge of the website for assisstance.”
I reached out to James to ask about the sale of IJ.com, and he let me know that his company (Phenom.com) brokered the sale of it.
Once the sale is confirmed by Ron Jackson, it will rank as the tenth largest publicly reported domain name sale of the year, just behind the $565,000 sale of Carrot.com.
