Earlier this month, Jamie Zoch reported that “Signet.com has been acquired by a currently unknown CSC Corporate Domains client.” The domain name was sold by Netincome Ventures, Garry Chernoff’s domain investment firm. From what I can see using DomainTools Whois History tool, Garry’s company owned Signet.com since at least 2004, the date of the earliest historical Whois record.
I have been given permission to share that Signet.com was sold for $300,000 in a deal brokered by Afternic. Garry told me the deal took three months to negotiate. The sale was confirmed by a representative from Afternic, but the company declined to provide further details about the deal.
I presume Ron Jackson will independently confirm the deal and it will be listed in the DNJournal sales report once he has done his due diligence. Assuming that is the case, this will be the tenth largest publicly reported domain name sale of 2018, tied with the $300,000 sales of EEN.com and The.Club.
Signet.com does not yet resolve, and the domain name is still registered to CSC Corporate Domains, Inc. As a result, it is still unclear who acquired Signet.com or how the domain name will be used. I will keep an eye
