Operate.com was sold today for $190,000 in a public auction on NameJet. It looks like there were more than 100 bidders who participated in the auction with at least a backorder. Operate.com was one of the Thought Convergence domain names put into auction at NameJet.
According to NameBio, this is the largest sale on the NameJet platform in at least three years. The $148,134 sale of eShop.com in March of this year was the previous high water mark at NameJet during the past three years.
Other sales today on NameJet from the Thought Convergence portfolio include Oversee.com for $77,500, Helpline.com for $57,600, and Clandestine.com for $26,006.
There are a number of other high profile domain name auctions from this portfolio closing tomorrow. Aftermarket.com, Threat.com, and Beer.com all have hit the six figure mark. The Beer.com portfolio high bid is $999,999, but it has not yet met the reserve price.
Because the auction closed within the last hour or so, the purchase has not yet been completed. Once the sale transacts, I am sure NameJet will officially report the sale to domain industry news publications.
