Domain Sells – Brokered by MarkMonitor

On Monday, the premium domain underwent a registrar transfer, moving away from corporate provider MarkMonitor to Dynadot.

Those of you who have visited the domain over the past couple of years will no doubt be aware that the name has been up for sale for quite a while. A blog post from Jamie Zoch of DotWeekly indicates the name has been for sale since 2018.

Now, it seems has finally been sold. After the name moved from MarkMonitor to Dynadot, I contacted MarkMonitor who confirmed that they had indeed brokered the sale of this phenomenal domain name.

No sales price was revealed, and we currently have no idea as to who bought the name since the domain moved to Dynadot under privacy protection.

How much did the name sell for? Elliot Silver, who also spotted the name’s movement, revealed that he offered six-figures for multiple times:


That would seem to indicate that sold for a high six- or seven-figure fee.

In terms of branding, common fruit names are highly desirable. Apple. Blackberry. Orange. Peach and are comparable to those established names from a brand perspective.

As for comparable sales, we have which sold for $800,000 in 2016.

They were asking $800,000. Would guess $300k-400k.

Ah wow James, thanks for confirming. Definitely north of $500k but my best guess would peg this domain at an even $1M.
