Over the past few years, Hostgator founder Brent Oxley has amassed a portfolio consisting of some of the best .COM domain names in existence. Paying somewhere in the eight-figure range to create the portfolio, Brent has now listed the majority of his domains for sale at Oxley.com.
The names on display at Oxley.com include Broker.com, Create.com, and VT.com. One thing that I have always noticed about Brent’s portfolio is that it has always been loyally hosted at GoDaddy, with names often being transferred from the likes of Network Solutions and Uniregistry to GoDaddy.
That seems to have changed recently, as mass transfers mean that a large proportion of Brent’s portfolio has now moved from GoDaddy over to registrar rival Namecheap. According to WHOIS, the domains mentioned above, as well as the likes of Storm.com, Analyze.com, and one of his latest buys Sand.com, have all been transferred away from GoDaddy. As of writing, Bonjour.com, Piano.com, and Message.com among others, are still at GoDaddy.
Brent confirmed to me that the move was simply a registrar switch, but declined to comment further than that.
