Mike Mann, the prolific domain investor and founder of DomainMarket.com, has reported his latest domain name sale.
In a tweet sent on Monday, Mann shared the $200,000 sale of Dorsia.com, a domain originally registered in 2002.

Mann, who owns a portfolio thought to consist of more than 170,000 domain names, also confirmed to me privately that the deal was facilitated by DomainMarket.com’s Chris Waters.
A screenshot, above, shows the Dorsia.com domain held a $1 million purchase price at the time of the sale, so the buyer got a steep discount on Mann’s original asking price.
As of publishing, Dorsia.com remains in Mann’s possession, so the buyer’s identity is unknown. Crunchbase lists 2 small companies using the Dorsia brand name, with Spanish company Dorsia the more likely candidate to be upgrading their domain from Dorsia.es to Dorsia.com.
According to NameBio, the domain was previously sold at GoDaddy in 2012 for $1,200. Whois history would suggest that Mann was the $1,200 buyer.
