Registrar For Sale

While DomainCocoon in general recommends becoming ICANN accredited from scratch versus purchasing an already accredited registrar, the auction happening today may be worth a look. As reported by Domain Name News, the registrar company, a customer base of 8,000 domains, some hosting accounts and domain are all up for sale. The Buy It Now price of $3,000,000, which expired yesterday, seems rather high for our taste, but who knows how much room there is for negotiation.

[Update] The registrar was sold successfully, the price was not made public at the time. Today, the domain name seems to be used for brokerage service.
