Monte Cahn emailed me to let me know his company, Right of the Dot, brokered the sale of Vehicle.com for $121,675. A week ago, Monte reported that his company brokered the sales of Kick.com for $276,077.45 and Cogent.com for $60,029.60.
The Vehicle.com domain name is currently registered under Whois privacy at Namecheap. When I visited Vehicle.com this morning, I was taken to an Efty “for sale” landing page on Oxley.com. That website is owned by prolific domain investor Brent Oxley, who has acquired many high value domain names over the last few years.
Using the Whois History tool at DomainTools, I can see the domain name appears to have changed hands in May of this year. The domain name Whois information was redacted by privacy, the nameservers and registrar both changed around May 15. It is unclear if Monte is reporting that sale or if Brent resold the domain name. My guess is that Monte is reporting Brent’s acquisition of the domain name, but Monte did not clarify for me.
Once Ron Jackson confirms the $121,675 sale, it will rank as the 17th largest publicly reported sale of 2020 on the DNJournal YTD sale report. It will beat out the $115,000 sale of Plains.com, which transacted in April of this year. I added the sale to the Embrace.com one word .com sale list. Notably, ElectricCar.com was sold for $180,000 earlier this year.
I reached out to Monte and Brent to seek clarification about the sale of Vehicle.com. If I hear back from either of them with more information, I will post an update.
Update: Brent Oxley just confirmed he was the buyer of the domain name
