    The so called 'domain sale' of cars.com was a company sale, including the / it's domain as a part of it.
    We all know that ;)

    +++

    No one will ever own this domain, this domain is technically not possible.
    Because it has 16 times 'cars' in it's domain name which results in 64 characters - but the maximum number of allowed characters is 63 characters.
    So there is one 'cars' too much, it can only have 15 times 'cars' which will result in 60 characters.


    But let's wait and see who will own the following domains:

    carcarcarcarcarcarcarcarcarcarcarcarcarcarcarcarcarcarcarcarcar.car

    - highest possible number of 'car' in a domain name (21)
    - highest possible number of characters in a domain name (63)

    - TLD .car


    carscarscarscarscarscarscarscarscarscarscarscarscarscarscars.cars

    - highest possible number of 'cars' in a domain name (15)
    - 60 characters in it's domain name
    - TLD .cars


    autoautoautoautoautoautoautoautoautoautoautoautoautoautoauto.auto
    - highest possible number of 'cars' in a domain name (15)
    - 60 characters in it's domain name
    - TLD .auto

    If Cars.com confirmed to be the largest domain in history, what about Car.com?

    Seriously folks, the sale of a huge business that used a premium name like Cars.com will not have any impact on the price of a Cars.gtld, Car.gtld, Cars.net or Cars.anything...it was just a business sale which included one of the best domains you can get.

    Although the headline of this thread is already nonsense, ('domain sale') here is another so called 'domain sale' (nothing other than a company sale, including the domain) which is even higher than cars.com:

    $3.3 B USD for the 'domain' (company) jet.com

    ccTLDmarket
    http://www.cctldmarket.com/p/normal-0-false-false-false-en-us-x-none_9.html

    Bloomberg
    https://www.bloomberg.com/news/arti...-to-buy-jet-com-for-3-billion-to-fight-amazon

    Forbes
    https://www.forbes.com/sites/ryanma...iggest-u-s-e-commerce-deal-ever/#142bba1a20b1


    So the 'domain sale' (hahaha) of jet.com ($3.3 B USD) was $0.8 B USD higher than the 'domain sale' (hahaha) of cars.com ($2.5 B USD).

    So the point is to find out which is / are really the highest domain/s in history.

    Only original handregs are 'pure' or 'straight' domain name sales.

    Once a name is addressed into the Domain Name System everything at that address is, by definition, its Domain. Whether you park a sign on it, sell cars from it, or leave it inactive... it all becomes part of that domain's history -which determines its value.

    Of course, owners can liquidate a domain's assets, and sell the name separately.
    But that is not the case in the Cars.com domain sale.

    On the other hand, if you 'sell a domain' that is not in the index... did you really sell a Domain?

    If anything, those "Domainers" should stop obfuscating the definition of Domain and not call those transactions "Straight" or "Pure" Domain Sales... as they are de-indexed Name sales.

    Domain:
    1. a field of action...
    2. the territory governed by a single ruler...
    3. a realm or range...
    4. a region characterized by a specific feature...
    5. property to which there is superior title and ownership.

    DomainGang has satire and real news.

    This story is not satire since it shows "This post is 100% True!" at the bottom.

    DomainGang.com covers domain industry, social media and technology news; the approach being two-fold:
    • Parody domain news that follow the tongue-in-cheek humor of The Onion, and
    • Real domain news that are presented with a “100%” image at the bottom.

    DomainGang blocks access to its site from services like Tor.
