Hostgator founder turned domain investor Brent Oxley has amassed a portfolio filled with some of the most desirable domains on the Internet. From the likes of Broker.com and Create.com to Athlete.com and VT.com, Brent has spent a significant amount of money to create a portfolio anyone would be envious of.
Brent acquires plenty of domains (I’ve reported on countless acquisitions over the last five years), but he sells very few. Today, I can report one name that he has sold in a seven-figure financed deal, and that is Uno.com.
Judging by the WHOIS data available combined with DomainIQ’s WHOIS history, the sale likely occurred around mid-August. I confirmed the sale with Brent and according to him, the name sold for a seven-figure fee on a long-term finance deal (terms are unknown, but it’s likely to be a payment plan taking place over five to ten years).
Since the name is likely being paid for on a payment plan, it cannot be listed on any DNJournal or NameBio charts as it’s not officially considered “sold” for the records until the deal is complete. That being said, it is another example of a seven-figure domain deal that has been agreed upon behind the scenes in 2020, despite there being no charted seven-figure sales in 2020 to date.
Little is known about the buyer of Uno.com. The WHOIS data gives no clues, and the domain currently just hosts a “coming soon” page.
Based on WHOIS history, Brent seems to have originally acquired Uno.com in 2017 from United Online Inc, a company that still owns the domain Uno.net.
