This evening, Ryan Colby announced a major domain name sale for Outcome Brokerage, the domain name brokerage he founded in 2013. Although he is unable to share the domain name that sold, he was able to say it was a $1,400,000 deal.

The announcement was made on Colby’s Twitter and Facebook feed. On the Facebook announcement, Colby was able to share a bit more information about the domain name that was sold: “The premium domain which was sold was a 4 – 8 character generic .com.” I am unsure if the domain name had been marketed publicly by Colby’s company, but if it was, it should not be too difficult to figure out what was sold.
There is a considerable volume of domain name sales that are kept private due to a non-disclosure agreement. Some buyers don’t want others to know about a domain name acquisition for competitive reasons and many sellers don’t want to share this private information because it doesn’t do anything to benefit them. As a blogger, I don’t like it when people don’t share, but as a seller, I never share information about sales, so I get it.
Congratulations to Colby on closing this large deal. Hopefully the deal is already completed or will be completed swiftly.
