DomainMarket.com founder Mike Mann is no stranger to six-figure sales. With a portfolio running into the hundreds of thousands of domains, Mann has previously struck gold with sales such as AutomatedInvesting.com for $179,888, and CryptoWorld.com for $194,888.
His company has added another six-figure deal to the books as Mann took to Twitter to announce the $150,000 sale of TechnologyHoldings.com. Mann’s original purchase price wasn’t disclosed, but NameBio shows that the domain last sold in 2007 for $2,788 at domain marketplace Afternic. Whois history suggests Mann’s company took ownership of the domain shortly after that.

The domain moved to a privacy-protected GoDaddy account and while Whois data is privacy protected, the domain is now redirecting to an existing website, revealing the buyer’s identity.
Based on the fact that TechnologyHoldings.com is redirecting to Technology-Holdings.com, the domain’s buyer is Technology Holdings Worldwide, Inc., a mergers and acquisitions advisory group that has been operating since 2000.
There doesn’t seem to be any immediate logic to the timing of the upgrade. Technology Holdings has been in business since 2000 and has been operating on Technology-Holdings.com since 2011, according to Archive.org. It’s an upgrade that makes perfect sense, but why now?
