Sold for $175,000 via Sedo

According to a LinkedIn post from Sedo’s Sr. Broker Dave Evanson, the domain name was sold via Sedo for $175,000:

The domain name is currently registered to Sedo’s transfer service, so the buyer is unknown at this point in time. The domain name has been registered under Whois privacy, so the seller is also unknown.

In doing a cursory search on NameBio, I can see this is the largest publicly reported domain name sale. sold for a little more than $50,000 back in 2006, sold for $50,000 in 2011, and sold for just shy of $40,000 in 2019. I can also see it is the largest Solar-related publicly reported domain name sale by a wide margin.

  1. I agree Michael, a great price for the buyer. The climate situation effects everyone’s way of life and global warming is not going away anytime soon. In my opinion is a 7 figure domain and the green energy economy is the only growth economy worth investing in.
