Evanson recently announced that Sedo had the exclusive contract to sell Angel.com, and it seems that the domain didn’t take long to sell at all.
Angel.com, previously owned by Genesys Telecommunications, has been sold to a currently unknown buyer from Utah. Update, the buyer has now been revealed.
Genesys, a customer service and contact center technology provider, acquired Angel.com after acquiring the self-service application specialist Angel in 2013 from MicroStrategy. According to Forbes, MicroStrategy sold Genesys the Angel business, along with the domain, for $110 million.
MicroStrategy is famous for selling Voice.com for $30 million. The company still maintains a valuable domain portfolio.
It doesn’t appear to have been acquired by Angel.co, a popular platform for the startup community, a company that could have been considered to be the most likely buyer.
The news of the sale was announced today by Evanson on Twitter.
