Signet.com Sold for $300,000 via Afternic

10

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.

Canadian domain investor Garry Chernoff has reportedly sold Drink.com for $500,000. The half million dollar deal was closed using the domain brokerage services of Darryl Lopes and Jason White who work for DomainNameSales.com. The sale is now tied with Give.com for the 11th largest public domain name sale of the year, according to DNJournal.

Garry told me the inquiry for Drink.com was initially made several years ago, but the negotiation was recently rekindled and closed. I asked Garry if he could share any additional comments about the deal, but he declined to comment further. A historical Whois search shows that Chernoff's company acquired Drink.com sometime in 2004.

The Whois information was just updated, and the (more…) → Read More


Glitter Launches on Glitter.club

Whenever I hear about a company or business using a descriptive brand name, I immediately wonder if they got the exact match .com domain name or opted for an alternative. I saw the tweet above referencing  a  TechCrunch article about a new app called Glitter, and when I checked the url, I learned that the startup is using  Glitter.club  for its website.

According to the article, "Glitter is a personal trading cards app, which lets users create mobile, tradable cards that feature all types of 'ingredients,' as the company calls it." Sounds like an interesting concept.

I did some research on the Glitter.club domain name, and I saw that it  was registered to .CLUB Domains, LLC (the.Club Registry) in March of this year. In April, the domain name changed hands and was  registered to Betaworks. I reached out to Jeff Sass,  CMO of the .Club registry, and he informed   (more…) → Read More


Garry Chernoff Sells Scada.com for $110k

6

Last week, I published an article about Garry Chernoff's sale of Jet.com, which is now reportedly owned by the founder of Diapers.com, Mark Lore. Although the sale of the Jet.com domain name was private, I learned about another nice sale that Chernoff's company (NetIncome Ventures) just closed. Scada.com was sold for $110,000 in a deal brokered by Darryl Lopes at DomainNameSales.com.

If you visit Scada.com, you can see that it is owned by a company called B-Scada, Inc. Before visiting the website, I was not aware that SCADA is an acronym for "Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition." According to the website found on its newly acquired domain name, B-Scada, Inc. was established in 2003, and the company is based Crystal River, Florida. Prior to the acquisition, it appears that the company had been using B-Scada.com or BScada.com for its website.

When reporting the sale, Chernoff mentioned that (more…) → Read More


Reports: Diapers.com Founder Acquires Jet.com

0

For many years, the Jet.com domain name was owned by Canadian domain investor Garry Chernoff and his NetIncome Ventures, Inc. In January of this year, the Whois registrant information went private, and according to reports I read, the buyer was Mark Lore, founder of Diapers.com.

According to an article on Fortune / CNN Money, "Lore confirms to  Fortune  that he acquired the domain  Jet.com, which has  a placeholder that says "Coming 2015." Jet.com Inc. was incorporated in Delaware on April 4, according to the State of Delaware's website."  An article by Jason Del Rey in Re/Code suggests that Lore has big plans for this project, and Lore may be "interested in raising as much as $50 million to get his new company off the ground. One source said that number could go higher."

Knowing the quality of Chernoff's domain name assets and some of his prices, I would bet that this domain name had a (more…) → Read More
