Mike Mann Sells Luxury.CO for $60k


Mike Mann is reporting that his company has sold the domain name Luxury.CO for $60,000. The Whois data has not changed yet, so it’s not known who acquired the domain name or how the domain name will be used. With the end of the summer fast approaching, this will likely be one of the top ten sales of last week.

In May of 2011, Mann’s company sold Business.CO for $80,000. It appears that domain name was purchased as an investment, and it’s currently for sale again for $200,000  via GoDaddy.

Mann was an early investor in .CO domain names, and his company still owns a portfolio of keyword domain names. The list of names for sale is available on AUX.com.

    .co is the greatest thing since .com started

    Mike Mann is the king and one of the most ethical domainers around.

    Wow. Buy. Buy. Buy .co!

    .com is tapped out.

    .Co is where the next great domain wealth mining is to be had.

    There is so many great opportunities with

    .Co right not, it is not even funny.

    LLL.Co s are still going for sub-$1000

    and still many keywords going for reasonable prices.

    That is a really nice sale for .co

    .co is a big bubble that will burst sooner or later

    September 3rd, 2011 at 7:46 pm

    Elliot Silver

    @ Daniel

    Please tell me how this is a bubble. I would imagine there would need to be a lot more large sales to be a bubble.

    .Co has formed a nice solid foundation.

    It has become a blue chip domain extension.

    You cannot go wrong in investing in this space.

    @ Robert Cline

    Wasn’t it you who was begging for money/coupons so you could renew your .CO domain names? You’re like a cheerleader. Annoying grown man cheerleader.

    September 3rd, 2011 at 8:05 pm

    Robert Cline

    well, I got my wish.

    I raked together $15,950 in enough in donations, funding, and my hard earned money to renew 940 of my .Co domains.

    Plus god gave me a present of my own with a

    $50,000.00 sale plus another $6,000.00 in domain name sales
    to be able to renew.

    god has blessed me.

    god finds ways to reward those like myself that work hard and promote correctly the right extensions.

    September 3rd, 2011 at 8:11 pm


    It is a good notice, but in my opinion, despite the high number of names already registered, sales like these still have been low.
    I pray daily for the .CO be more accepted by all segments of the web.

    “$50,000.00 sale”

    @ Robert Cline

    What name did you sell for $50,000? I don’t believe you.

    September 3rd, 2011 at 8:13 pm

    Robert Cline

    No this is true

    I would tell you the name

    if you tell me how much you’ve sold

    the domains you’ve sold on that list of your domains you’ve sold

    to me. You can even email it to my whois info that starts with jkim@ if you like to keep it private.

    I just need this type of information. In fact, key information that I require for my future pricing.

    September 3rd, 2011 at 8:17 pm

    Elliot Silver

    @ Cline

    I’ve seen some of the garbage you own, and I don’t believe for a second you sold a name for $50k.

    I have nothing to prove, especially to a comment troll like yourself. I don’t think you’re anything but a cheerleader.

    September 3rd, 2011 at 8:21 pm

    Robert Cline

    please do not say this.

    I have escrow.com

    screen shots available as proof for

    perhaps just a small donation.

    September 3rd, 2011 at 8:28 pm


    Nice sale indeed.

    Sent to a Mail Boxes Etc. in Lagos, Nigeria I’d imagine

    @ Robert

    If you send me the screenshot and it’s legit, I will make a $100 donation to Ronald McDonald House of NY, a non-profit organization helping kids with cancer and their families.

    September 3rd, 2011 at 9:37 pm


    @Elliot why even waste a single minute attempting to verify the legitimacy of this Robert Cline person. His posts are borderline manic. Maybe I’m missing something, but I just don’t see how it’s productive in any shape or form.

    September 3rd, 2011 at 9:48 pm


    Nice to see this among the dot co sales crickets. I was selling a LLL a week last spring. Lately…not so much…

    If people are going to claim things, they should back them up, especially if they lack a reputation.

    September 3rd, 2011 at 10:33 pm


    Anyone talking about god (little “g”)
    is either 11 years old or not talking about the game God
    that I’m thinking of 🙂

    September 3rd, 2011 at 11:19 pm



    Maybe I’m 11.
    I can’t type either 🙂

    Well crap.


    September 3rd, 2011 at 11:20 pm


    This is worth 50-100k

    September 3rd, 2011 at 11:49 pm


    Nice big sale … but just like so many of the other large .CO sales we hear about … no buyer info, sometimes no whois change, no news of major development with these purchased names …

    Interesting, sure. Good news for .co, possibly. But sketchy, as usual.


    September 4th, 2011 at 12:00 am


    Anytime there is a dot co sale, you know that R Cline guy will here to BS .

    September 4th, 2011 at 12:22 am


    god finds ways to reward those like myself that work hard and promote correctly the right extensions.

    Robert, you have should see your doctor and tell him you
    have symptoms of manic depression…..he/she can help you, but you have to take the first step and call…..

    September 4th, 2011 at 12:25 am


    I think .co will be no. 2 someday (5-10 years) or even no.1 eventually as it’s shorter than its older brother .com
    best regards

    (provided Google treats it right)

    September 4th, 2011 at 1:45 am


    I think this is totally AWESOME news – ‘god’ is entering the domain market!!!
    Oh, nice domain sale too 😉

    September 4th, 2011 at 5:40 am


    I think this is awesome news, however the timing is also extremely perfect. Did .co buy it back to have people renew their .co Domains?
    Don´t get me wrong I registered quite a few in the past days because I do think the .co extension has huge potential. And you can get great generics for $10 at Godaddy these days.
    Still great timing though.

    September 4th, 2011 at 6:53 am

    Robert Cline


    I like the way you thinking bro.

    “even no.1 eventually as it’s shorter than its older brother .com”

    @E. Silver

    I am prepared to show my screen shot of my $50,000.00 sale.
    I hoping for funding my own domain renewal trust fund, but no matter, Ronald MacDonald house for the kids is just as good.
    Once you see the screen shot of my sale, I wish for you to repudiate me of all the negative charges and name calling of me by all the unknowledgeable people.
    Now the actual domain name will be covered but you will see the dollar amount along with me being the seller.
    Let me know if this is agreeable to you.

    September 4th, 2011 at 9:16 am

    Elliot Silver

    @ Robert

    I assume you will give me permission to confirm that the sale was fully completed by asking the team at Escrow.com. If you leave the name uncovered, I won’t report it, but it will allow me to confirm Whois changes correspond with the escrow agreement.

    September 4th, 2011 at 9:18 am

    Robert Cline

    Oh, one other request.

    I want one of these articles written about my sale as well.

    Maybe headline like:

    “One of Our Own Long Time Prominent Poster Robert Cline Makes a $50,000.00 Sale.”

    September 4th, 2011 at 9:19 am

    Elliot Silver

    “One of Our Own Long Time Prominent Poster”

    You’re not one of my anything. However, I will write a post assuming I can confirm everything, which means the name must be visible. I won’t report the name though.

    September 4th, 2011 at 9:22 am

    Robert Cline

    You can see the name but you have to promise to keep it to yourself.

    September 4th, 2011 at 9:25 am


    @R. Cline

    It may be your occasion to prove you’ve not been trolling (assuming it’s not another of your claims).

    September 4th, 2011 at 9:44 am

    .co 50,000 sale

    I think Robert you should report it as sale like that always some help to promote .co and I have noticed you are very into .co promotion. So do not hesitate and just do it!

    September 4th, 2011 at 10:58 am


    I selected some .co domain names that have not been registered yet.


    Good business!

    September 4th, 2011 at 2:26 pm

    Robert Cline


    It feels great

    the anticipation

    the forplay that is most fun.

    once you come, it’s all down hill.

    so we must extend the sense of anticipation

    extend the heart racing, what is it, what could it be,

    I wonder what does Mr. Cline have up his sleeve?

    mmmummm. how fun it is to ride ….

    September 4th, 2011 at 7:54 pm

    Elliot Silver

    @ Cline

    I don’t think anyone really actually cares all that much.

    September 4th, 2011 at 7:56 pm


    Elliot–thanks for putting up with my “BUllS’ but are you going to put up with RC?

    Please delete all his old BS redundant dot CO comments.

    September 4th, 2011 at 8:09 pm

    Robert Cline

    There will always be the

    Hitlers and Saddam Husseins of this world

    and you are looking straight at him in


    Yah, just eliminate your opponents.

    Dissent, no dissent here,

    pooh, squash all opponents

    execution style.

    Can win by persuasion. just use the a barrel of a bullet approach.

    might makes right

    censor him and don’t give him any daylight.


    September 5th, 2011 at 1:08 am


    uhoh I think Elliots running that Free Crack Pipe With Every Comment! promotion again 😮

    September 5th, 2011 at 1:31 am


    @Robert Cline

    I am neither Hitlers and Saddam Husseins -they are too wimpy in my eyes.

    Just to let you know, my ancestors are from the Genghis Khan tribe.

    We don’t waste food and we eat anything and everything.

    September 5th, 2011 at 2:16 am



    Instead of commenting, send Elliot the proof of your sale if you have it. Rest assured that, until you do it, no one will believe you.
