The two $750,000 deals overshadowed the $285,000 sale of shoppingcart.com, which was purchased by Monster Commerce. The domain was the first to be sold from @Home’s portfolio of 119 quality domains, which have been placed for sale by the At Home Liquidating Trust, which is seeking to recover funds for investors in the bankrupt Internet company. Among the other names being sold are home.net. stuff.com and mystuff.com.
The disconnect between the primary and secondary domain markets is likely to mean continued strength in new domain sales, as speculators hope to convert names bought for less than $10 into a future windfall.
