In an update on the Facebook post, Mike mentioned that he acquired acquired the domain name for $30,000 in 2008. Based on a screenshot from earlier this year it appears the original asking price was $300,000.
Whois records show that Aux.com is still registered to Mike, so the deal should still be considered pending. I am writing about it because Mike made it public, so I have no reason to believe it will not go through.
Assuming the deal goes through and is reported to Ron Jackson at DNJournal it will rank in the top 100 publicly reported domain name sales of 2015. As of today, the sale of Aux.com would rank at #62 tied with Gang.com, BSH.com, Autism.Rocks, and Net.Work, although that could change depending on other sales that are reported prior to this.
I couldn’t even guess what company bought this domain name for $100k, so I guess we will have to wait until the Whois changes.
Congratulations to Mike on the sale.
