I read a press release this afternoon announcing that Domain Advisors is the exclusive broker for Information.com, and the asking price has not been publicly revealed. The domain name has been owned by Oversee.net for a number of years.
In checking out some screenshots from the website’s past, it appears that Information.com was once positioned as a search engine. I would guess that the results pages contained sponsored results and that Oversee made money on the resulting clicks. According to Domain Name News, it was previously used for “framed parking.”

Press release is below:
DomainAdvisors, a leading broker of ultra premium domain names, announced today that Information.com has been listed exclusively for sale with their firm. Highly marketable and easy to remember, Information.com offers a unique branding opportunity for a new or established company to capitalize on a universally recognized word included in over 68 million Google searches each month. “A domain name like Information.com offers limitless subdomain possibilities and has a strong and memorable branding association,” said Tessa Holcomb, CEO of DomainAdvisors.
Geoffrey Nunberg, professor at UC Berkeley’s School of Information, created a timeline of the history of information dating back to 20,000 B.C. when cave paintings were used to document important facts and details. Flash forward to 1998 when President Clinton’s full testimony receives millions of hits when it is released on the web, marking the coming of age of the Web as a means for the dissemination of public information. The Information.com domain name offers significant potential to a new or established player to capitalize on the Information Age by creating a convenient channel for both new and savvy Internet users.
Descriptive, generic domain names have historically been the most valuable properties on the Internet. Similar domains that have sold in the past show the potential value of the sale of this domain. Some examples include Social.com that sold for $2.6 million, Find.com for $1.2 million, Files.com for $725,000, Local.com for $700,000, and Answer.com that sold for $550,000.
