It appears that another two letter .com domain name has been sold. Because of the recent two letter .com domain names that have recently sold (or appear to have sold), I have been monitoring a number of those that aren’t held by major corporations, and I noticed a change with CH.com.
The Whois information for the CH.com domain name changed yesterday, and the new domain registrant is listed as Spring Airlines, a company that appears to be based in China. CH.com is currently forwarding to the company’s website, China-SSS.com. This isn’t a big surprise considering that many similar two letter .com domain names have sold to Chinese buyers. Some two letter .com domain names that I have written about recently include the following:
Prior to the sale, the domain name was owned by Media Options, the domain brokerage and investment firm founded by Andrew Rosener. I reached out to Andrew to inquire about the sale, and he did not wish to discuss it publicly. Knowing Andrew’s knack for getting good prices for his domain names, I would imagine this was an exceptional sale.
Although did not wish to comment about this particular sale, here is a comment from Andrew about two letter .com domain names on August 13, 2014:
“For an endless number of reasons which I’ve documented on our own blog, I believe that 2 Letter domain names are one of the most under-appreciated and under-valued assets today. If there were a single class of domain name which I were most confident in the future value appreciation of, it would most certainly be two letter .com domains – even more so than 2 number .com domains, despite their being even more scarce, simply because the letters have a more global appeal and reach and numbers are primarily focused and value based in China and other Asian markets. “
If you notice a two letter .com domain name sale that is unreported, I invite you to share the information with me so I can research it.
