According to the DomainTools domain registrant email I receive every morning, it looks like the Print.com domain name was briefly registered to Sedo’s Transfer Service. This would indicate to me that the domain name was sold and is in escrow with Sedo.
When I checked the Whois information this morning, the domain name is now registered to an entity in the Netherlands. Prior to this, Print.com was registered to a California-based entity, according to DomainTools Whois history tool. Sedo’s sold domain name RSS feed does not list Print.com. As of this morning, Print.com does not resolve to an active website, so I am unsure about how it will be used.
I reached out to several contacts at Sedo to see if they could confirm the sale, and if so, share any details about the sale. Dave Evanson, Sr. Domain Broker at Sedo, replied to me and said he was unable to comment about the domain name. I searched my email records, and I do not see any emails from Sedo mentioning the domain name, so if the company was involved in the deal, it may have been as a buyer’s broker or they may have been instructed to market the domain name stealthily. Again, this is just a guess.
Incidentally, Dave Evanson tweeted about an approximate $2 million deal he and two Sedo colleagues brokered recently:
Just co-brokered $2,000,000 USD (approximate) confidential sale with Sedo’s Albert Schimmel & Liane van Hoorn. Congrats to buyer and seller!

I am curious if this large deal may have been for Print.com. Unfortunately, because Sedo would not confirm that they brokered Print.com, and because the approximate $2 million deal is confidential, we will not know if the company brokered Print.com nor will we know if Print.com was the $2m sale. It does look like Sedo closed out its second quarter on a good note though.
