sales Has 77.com Just Been Sold Again?

Spaceship Spaceship
In December 2015, we published the news that the domain name 77.com had been sold for a fee that was thought to be around $5 million. The valuable two-number .COM domain name was acquired by DomainEmpire.com Ltd of London, a domain investment group that owns a portfolio of several thousand liquid domains.

The company have owned the domain name for around fifteen months, with 77.com hosting a β€œfor sale” sign for the entire duration. It seems that DomainEmpire.com Ltd may have finally received an offer that is substantial enough for them to sell, as is evident by the new WHOIS listing.

The only clue to a sale is the fact that the WHOIS recently changed to show Sedo's transfer service as being the registered owner, which means that the domain may have been sold via Sedo's marketplace, or by simply using Sedo's Escrow service.

There are no signals within the WHOIS as to who the new owner could be, but given China's love of numeric domains, the new owner could be based there.

In 2017, there have already been two publicly disclosed two-number .COM domain sales. Firstly, the sale of 01.com for $1.82 million was reported by DNJournal and then earlier this year NamePros published news of Jason Calacanis’ sale of 20.com for $1.75 million.

Based on recent WHOIS details, at least fifty two-number .COM domain names are registered in China, with many more likely to be registered to Chinese owners under WHOIS privacy. There are thirty two-number .COM’s under WHOIS privacy.

Given the domain’s history and the current value of all two-number .COM’s, this was almost certainly a seven figure sale. We'll be monitoring the WHOIS to see where the domain ends up.
