The third largest .CO domain sale has been recorded by Mike Mann. According to Mann, his sales team sold Business.CO for $80,000. The buyer for this domain name has not been disclosed, and the Whois record has not changed as of yet.
This sale will rank in DNJournal’s top 20 publicly reported domain sales for 2011, and it will also rank as the #2 country code domain sale for 2011, trailing Deals.com.au.
The only two higher publicly reported .CO domain sales that I can recall are O.CO, which was purchased by Overstock for $350,000, and E.CO, which was purchased for $81,500 by B52 Media. The later of the two domain names is on the market again for a cool half million dollars.
