    Today sees yet another two letter .com domain name change hands.

    However, contrary to the recent trend of domain names moving to Chinese investors, this one has gone from China to a company in the Philippines.

    The domain name is XA.com and has today completed its registrar move from eNom.com to GoDaddy with Hangzhou Midaizi Network (owners of 4.cn) moving the domain to an individual in the Phillipines.

    A matter of weeks before Hangzhou Midaizi Network became the registrant, XA.com was owned by a company in Singapore, so there is a possibility that the domain was brokered by 4.cn.

    Just five days ago, George Kirikos confirmed that the domain had moved to China:

    No pricing has been revealed for this domain sale Price revealed below, and the current average resale price of similar sales is at least $600,000.


    Update on Oct. 23, 2015: XA.com Sold For $850,000

    The domain was owned by Vincent Cheng (Possibly a fake name). He is not actually based in Singapore as I have been to the office address and his number is a Hong Kong number that doesn't actually work. I would guess he is based in China but for reasons unknown has false details. He is contactable via his email address only. I spoke on the phone to the new owner of XA.com as I am based in the Philippines. His english was not great so currently chatting via text. Will post info if I manage to get any. Regards, James
