    When I visited MyBB.com last year it was listed for sale by BuyDomains.com for $20k and this domain name is being used as official MyBB website now. Perfect end user bought the perfect domain for their project.

    After googling it a bit, I found the following article about the deal details. It seems BuyDomains gave MyBB around 75% off.

    Here's the url, it's certainly worth the time to read.

    Anyone want to ask questions about this I'm the guy that helped broker it for MyBB. That's my blog. And yes I know, I'm not an impressive blogger. Not really my thing.

    This is sort of old news, but labrocca, you definitely have the right negotiation skills to get that domain for such a great price! I've decided to try out mybb, seeing all the similar features to vbulletin. You definitely also know how to manage huge forums too, judging by your signature ;)

    My largest forum is more active than DP, NP, and DNF combined and it's running MyBB. :)
