Yinan Wang, the owner of the industry-defining DomainName.com, has revealed a six-figure sale that occurred via the GoDaddy network.
According to a LinkedIn post, Yinan Wang sold the domain name Canadian.com for $269,000:
The post reveals that the domain sale was facilitated by GoDaddy’s Uniregistry market, with WHOIS history suggesting that the deal was closed via Afternic. The sale occurred via an inbound inquiry.
As of publishing, WHOIS lists the new registrant of Canadian.com as “WorldClass.com LLC.”
This isn’t the first time that Canadian.com has sold, according to NameBio. In 2010, the name changed hands via Sedo for a $60,000 fee.

Buyer got a good deal, Canadian.com is worth way more than $269k IMO.
WorldClass.com was recently sold by Braden Pollock for $400k.
Wow! DomainName.com what a domain name! I thought it’s reserved by ICANN.
Thanks James.I think it must have sold also at $25,000 on Godaddy but I don’t know when. But if you type it on Godaddy to get an appraisal,it would reveal the old price of $25,000.
@Emeka I see that the valuation on GoDaddy says it previously sold for “more than $25,000” so that might be the 2010 sale
