    So what's the story behind that one, haven't looked. Something other than - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Five_nines ?

    Looks like 2 people who really want it, that's all it takes.

    From the $1,013.00 mark, just those 2.

    Didn't check backlinks. Redirect to a Comsearch, wireless company before. Nearly 7 hours now.

    Isn't that how it goes sometimes. It could have been over at $1,013.00, think you're about to get it, then 1 other person really wants it, now it looks like it's going to go another $20,000.

    Just hit the 20k mark.

    Not seeing anything recent - https://web.archive.org/web/*/FiveNines.com

    Looks like 1 entry last 12 years, a redirect one.

    GLOBAL SPECTRUM MANAGEMENT SOLUTIONS awhile back, Comsearch like you said.

    Now over 7 hours based off of what I see. Entertaining really. Five9s.com taken, and a bunch of others variations.

    Unbelievable. If I tried to sell any one of those bidders that domain, they would probably only offer $500.

    Looked like it would end 12 sec, and a next bid. Then next time longer, probably not a bot?

    nope -removed article-

    I saw this - "May 20, 2018 - Lincoln, May 15, 2018, Five Nines is excited to announce the hiring of Gail ... Medical marijuana advocates file ballot initiative with Nebraska ..."

    But it could be another article mixed in. It would have made sense with a 420domains bidder but I can't read the whole article.

    Don't think that's it. I guess we'll eventually find out. That turned out to be about a "information technology services company"

    Just noticed that, big jump.

    Current Bid: $32600 USD

    420 has a big proxy bid. Looks like the other bidder is tired of the back and forth, trying to figure out what the max bid is.
