Adam Robinson is the CEO of Retention.com, a company that aims to help businesses increase revenue by offering a variety of customer retention tools. When the business was founded, it was known as GetEmails and used GetEmails.com. The company upgraded its domain name to Retention.com in 2020, as noted by DomainGang.
Yesterday, Adam tweeted about acquiring a domain name for $800,000, and I saw it after George Kirikos reposted the tweet:
I spent $800,000 to acquire the domain for my startup
Ask me anything

Based on further responses to his initial tweet, including one where he specifically mentioned it, the domain name he is referencing is Retention.com. The domain name was acquired in August of 2022. Subsequent to his original tweet, Adam shared that the domain name was worth its $800,000 acquisition price. He also shared that he “Found it through a friend who was a domainer.” I did not see him mention who this person is.
If the $800,000 sale / purchase of Retention.com is added to the 2022 domain name sales reports on DNJournal and NameBio, it will tie for the 12th largest publicly reported domain name sale of last year. I am not sure if DNJournal or NameBio will add this domain name to their sales reports without independent verification.
Regardless of whether or not the sale is added, it is neat to read about a solid domain name acquisition that is benefitting the business.
