    Yesterday, we reported on the likely sale that took place recently. As expected, there was wide interest from the domain industry in this sale, including some fascinating Twitter comments from @MediaOptions CEO Andrew Rosener, in which he revealed that he knew of a $10 million cash offer that was rejected by the former owner of

    That information would lead us to speculate that the sale would have been valued in the eight-figure range, although no official confirmation has been given.
