According to an article in the Dutch online publication WebWereld.nl (reported on DNForum), a company based in the Netherlands recently paid $800,000 to acquire Printer.com. The notice currently showing on Printer.com says company plans to launch their new website on September 2, although they did not reveal their plans for the new website.
Personally, I think this is a fantastic deal. In Euros, the company spent just €546,220, which is a great price for this industry defining domain name. Although I don’t have any public sales to share, I know there have been a number of sales to Europeans over the past several months, taking advantage of the weaker US dollar. Similarly, in the 1980’s when the US was going through tough economic times, many huge real estate deals were consummated in New York City by Japanese companies, which used the strong Yen to their advantage.

  1. Saw the same thing w/Japanese cos (among a few others) here in the Los Angeles area…then watched as they bailed out–often with many millions to 10’s of millions of dollars/yen lost per building–when their own stock market and economy crashed years later…
