I noticed another domain name has been sold by, a company that operates a portfolio of valuable domain names., which had been registered to for many years, transferred from Tucows to GoDaddy. The domain name is currently registered under Whois privacy, but it is now forwarding to a company called Snappy that operates on The sale was confirmed to me by a representative of the company, and I was told the sale price was $415,000.

The buyer of was represented by GoDaddy and its Domain Buy Service. Larry Fischer from and represented on this deal.

Snappy, which started out under the Snappy Gifts branding, has undergone at least a couple of domain name changes in its six year history. In a 2016 TechCrunch article, the publication linked to its website on That domain name now forwards to, just like the brand match domain name.

According to its CrunchBase profile, Snappy has raised just shy of $10 million in funding to date in two funding rounds. According to a blog post on its website, Snappy was recently named “#1 fastest growing company in the New York Metro area in the annual Inc. 5000 Regionals: New York 2021 list.” Acquiring should help the company with its growth trajectory. has sold several high value domain names in the recent past, which I have previously documented. was sold to Blade for $503,000, was sold for an undisclosed amount (to Microsoft), and was sold for an undisclosed amount (to Fairway Independent Mortgage Corporation).

This sale was also added to the list of public one word .com domain name sales.
