The ultra-premium, four-letter domain Link.com has changed hands for an undisclosed fee in a deal that closed within the last month.
According to Whois data, the domain recently moved registrars from Gandi to Google under Whois privacy protection, suggesting the domain had sold.
Link.com had been brokered by Sedo’s Dave Evanson, with a tweet as recently as June 2022 revealing that Evanson had the exclusive rights to broker the name. An email to Evanson confirmed that Evanson was brokering Link.com and the domain has been sold, but further details were unavailable.
Up until the sale, Link.com had been owned by Chain Global Ltd., a blockchain-based technology company that operates on the Chain.com domain. The company still owns domains such as Assets.com, which is available for sale at Sedo as of publishing. The company also owned Block.com for a while, according to Whois history.
Chain’s CEO, Deepak Thapliyal, is no stranger to digital assets in general. Thapliyal, who is the owner of Deepak.com, has poured millions of dollars into NFTs, reportedly paying 8,000 ETH for a rare CryptoPunk earlier this year.
The new owner of Link.com hasn’t been revealed yet, but there are dozens of eligible end users across tens of industries that would benefit from the domain.
