On Monday morning, Media Options sent out a newsletter to announce that EO.com was for sale at a reduced price of $599,000. According to a tweet from the company’s Twitter account this morning, EO.com is now pending sale. As you can see in the tweet below, the company is very active in the two letter .com space, with “almost 30” LL.com domain names having been sold (or traded).

Media Options CEO Andrew Rosener would not say who has agreed to acquire the domain name, but he was willing to share some comments about the sale and the two letter.com market:
“We knew EO.com would sell, it’s a great example of a premium LL.com domain and a great value for the buyer. What I will say is that the buyer is not Chinese and that is quite important to note. The LL.com domain market is unique to any other category of domains. Values of these assets are not driven by the Chinese alone, the Western world has long put a high value on 2 letter .com domains and these domains were selling for high 6 figures and 7 figures before the Chinese took interest. The value of these assets continues to be supported and continues to rise. We are excited to not only have several more LL.com domains under brokerage, such as RG.com but as well as the three that we still own: EG.com, WI.com & PX.com.”
I asked if the domain name sold for the listing price, and Andrew wasn’t able to comment on that aspect of the deal. I would imagine the domain name sold for close to the asking price, considering the quick turnaround time after it was listed for sale. That is just a guess though.
Congratulations to the parties involved in this transaction.
