ROTD: Tattoo.com Sold for $800k & Names.com Sold for $300,000

This morning, Monte Cahn responded to a comment on my blog about the status of the Right of the Dot auction results. As far as I am aware, finalized results have not yet been reported by Right of the Dot founder Monte Cahn. Apparently, that is because he is continuing to work on closing additional deals.

In the comment Monte posted, he revealed that he “resold Tattoo.com for over $800,000,” and Names.com was sold for $300,000. From what I recall, Tattoo.com had been sold during the live auction for $750,000. I do not believe Names.com was sold during the live or silent auction, so this is an additional sale.

Because Monte reported these sales, I am pretty sure this means the deals have already closed (paid and domain names transferred). In fact, it looks like Tattoo.com was transferred to Dynadot from Tucows and Names.com appears to have changed registrant and Nameservers at Network Solutions.

When I mentioned the Tattoo.com sale on Twitter a couple of weeks ago, someone mentioned that Tattoo.com included the website, so it might not be a pure domain name sale. For the time being, I only added the sale of Names.com to the list of recent publicly reported one word .com domain name sales I maintain on Embrace.com. I am sure it will also be added to DNJournal and NameBio.

I do not have an update on any of the other auction sales but will continue to stay in touch with Monte and provide additional updates when I receive them.
