Brent Oxley Adds Motivate.com and HealthSpa.com To His Portfolio

Brent Oxley's acquisitions are something that I cover a lot on James/Names. I've previously blogged about his acquisition of Invite.com, and his acquisitions of names such as Sand.com earlier in the year.

I cover his purchases because they're usually significant premium .COM domains acquired for at least five to six-figures. In a matter of years, Brent has amassed a portfolio of some of the best domains on the planet. He has managed to compile this portfolio thanks to the money he received when he sold his hosting company, HostGator for $300 million.

Domain Sales from May 2010: Where Are They Now?

0
A trillion-dollar stock market crash occurs, and planes are grounded. Sounds familiar? This may somewhat mirror current happenings around the world, but this is what happened in May 2010. A trillion-dollar stock market crash occurred over 36 minutes and things were slowly returning to normal after flights were grounded in much of the world after Eyjafjallajökull erupted in Iceland.

In the domain world, Verisign hosted the "25 Years of .COM" gala where Aron Meystedt was recognized as the owner of Symbolics.com, the first .COM ever registered.

I think it's often interesting to look back at the past to see just how much as changed, and how much has stayed the same. From a domain perspective, it's also fascinating to see what has happened to domains since they were sold. So, here are some notable sales from ten years ago in May 2010, and what has happened to those domains since. These sales come courtesy of DNJournal's archive, and domain history data is courtesy of DomainIQ.
