It looks like Mark Cuban’s company has acquired the valuable domain name, Valuable.com, according to a recent Whois update. The domain name had been listed for sale by NameExperts.com, the domain brokerage operated by Joe Uddeme. The purchase price for Valuable.com is not being publicly disclosed, so it won’t be listed in DNJournal’s sale report or NameBio.
Joe told me he did a considerable amount of outreach to sell this domain name to both end user buyers and domain name investors. “Ultimately, Mark Cuban Companies was the appropriate acquisition partner for this asset.” Joe has a testimonial from Mark Cuban on his website, so it is safe to assume he has done other deals with Mark and his company.
As you should know, Mark is a successful entrepreneur who sold Broadcast.com to Yahoo for $5.7 billion, and he is the owner of the NBA’s Dallas Mavericks and is also one of the investors on Shark Tank. Mark’s company owns quite a few stellar domain names.
I am not sure if Mark Cuban has specific plans to use Valuable.com or if the domain name was opportunistically acquired in anticipation of being able to use it in the future. If you visit Valuable.com, you can see that the domain name does not yet resolve. I will try to check back to see how the domain name is used.
Valuable.com is a great domain name, and I am sure Mark and his company will make good use of it.
Great news about a great domain for sure. Just noticed @mcuban’s twitter is protected this time, maybe it always was, but that would have taken forever to click on 6.05 million “follow” requests.
Shark Tank is an enjoyable and useful show.
