    My friend Yinan Wang @owntype of DomainName.com and DomainNames.com fame, informed me he has purchased Link.com from L3 Technologies, Inc. The domain name was created in 1989 and was being used by L3T for their services since then. The domain had never been listed for sale in past 30 years. I was told there was a strict NDA signed between L3 Technologies, Yinan and the broker Joe Uddeme. L3 has just completed … [Read more...]

    I read the thread https://www.namepros.com/blog/joe-uddeme-brokers-the-sale-of-storm-com.1129535/
    In that thread mentioned Joe's also brokering Link and I like this domain name A LOT.
    So I contacted Joe and provided my offers. We negotiated a few times back and forth then we closed the deal. Simple like that, just like how I purchase other domain names.

    There's only one story behind this purchase. I have shared this with some domaner friends in the past.
    I sold a three words domain name Link******.com for $35k in 2008 to an end user. And after a few years I found it is listed for sale in Godaddy's expiration auction and I bought it back for $500. Maybe that's the reason I made my decision that I MUST get Link this time. :)

    Nice domain, congrats. Just thinking of potential end-users, I’m sure you have a few yourself in mind, but first company that comes to my mind would be the domain would be awesome for a company like LinkedIn for a potential re-brand in the future or 2nd project.
