Labeled as purchases in Domain Industry News, started by YairDD, Feb 27, 2020
Kudos to GoDaddy for deciding to not monetize this domain name. If you visit Coronavirus.com, you can see it is forwarding to a page within the World Health Organization's website with information about this illness.
Here's what I wrote about it: https://domaininvesting.com/coronavirus-com-is-owned-by-godaddy/
I saw Uni agent selling this name at high $xxx,xxx a few days ago at Linkedin.
more proof Godaddy has more money than know what to so with. When virus fizzles, it will be worthless.
As the article I wrote states, GoDaddy bought it as part of the Uniregistry portfolio acquisition. The company did not choose this particular domain name to purchase individually.
Thank you for clarifying! i’m of firm belief this is the epitome of “fad” Sorry elliot! title misleading
Change; “acquired as part of Uni portfolio”
As always, thank you for sharing!
Some of trend domain in 2020 , its interesting when we could predict trend for 5 or 10 later
Seems people think Corona will end up like the 1919 Spanish flu... I laugh at corona domains,
if you’re trying to profit off this..
Great Samer...I don't like any trend , focus on good domain for smallest niche ,but really targetted in my mind
this is the worst trend of 2020 and Corona domains give us a bad a name if trying to flip.
It comes to no surprise, Godaddy is trying to make themselves look like they have a heart.
am cynical, unless gd give domain WHO, CDC
after virus, Couldnt Corona beer file UDRP?
Elliot? Sorry, precarious name (Scared, beer)
That's true Samer, focus to scale our capability in domaining is more important than doing what we never know
If that is true, then nice effort from GoDaddy!
As for CoronaVirus, my sense is that the fear factor is more significant than the epidemiological risk.
I update my status , just forgot to mention from start
Thanks for sharing, good to know Epik is expanding worldwide.
I agree. people are in fear of Coronavirus for no reason in my opinion. a regular flu is more dangerous than that. probably the US government trying to make people afraid to harm China's economics
Regarding the virus, waiting for the moment we all hear it has a treatment or some hope towards eradication.
They will do , this is intention , the seed of fear was introduced to the people
"The Lombard autonomy referendum of 2017 took place on 22 October in Lombardy, Italy"
Just a example to be delicate . Strange they did no't find until now patient 0 in Italy - LOL (maybe is a pangolin )
So my advice - let's focus on domain names business
Good to see GD is thinking from the heart on the forwarding to WHO on this matter
Good job by GD,
bad domain 👎
remember ebola dot com?
tbh, we had all better hope that coronavirus.com becomes worthless...
why? because of it DOESN'T become worthless, that can only mean the world never got over the outbreak...
and then 12 monkeys lol.
Thanks for the updates, @frank-germany,
Looks trustworthy, reliable as .info get. I prefer;
I can understand where the 8% mortality comes from
but I have a hard time to understand where they get the 2.3% from
Separate names with a comma.
