    The GoTo.com domain name was acquired for USD $2.5 million, by LogMeIn (to shorten their GoToMeeting.com):

    https://www.sec.gov/Archives/edgar/data/1420302/000119312518136767/d518828d10q.htm

    Using DomainTools history and reverse WHOIS, it was clear that GoTo.com was the domain.

    Update: As noticed in a comment on TheDomains:

    https://www.thedomains.com/2018/04/28/goto-com-was-acquired-for-2-5-million/#comment-226701

    despite describing it in the singular (“a domain name”) in the SEC filing, it does appear it was a package that included Go2.com. I would place most of the value on GoTo.com, but DNJournal usually doesn’t put package deals on their charts, even when a single domain is the primary acquisition (that’s why FB.com for $8.5 million isn’t charted, for example). Here, the simple average of the 2 domains would be $1.25 million/each, higher than the current highest publicly reported transaction (Super.com for $1.2 million) for 2018.

    Interesting. I forgot I own Go2.somenTLD where the registry owns Goto.somenTLD and offers it on their marketplace. Might be worth it to do some outbound.
