This 1998 dot com domain name expired and dropped at GoDaddy and has now been auctioned off for the grand sum of $26,500 USD.
I suppose you are all asking why so much for this two-word dot com, it doesn’t appear to be anything special from the outside looking in but the domain name was a developed website owned and operated by FoxIT Australia pty ltd, who also own another 56 domain names such as pdfoasis.com, quickpdftools.com, pdfstore.com and many more…
The corporate site for FoxIt is FoxIt.com where you can see they operate in the USA and across Europe too with many different software tools so it’s surprising to see this one expire and be auctioned off but it could be a complete oversight from the company.
The reason why somebody has paid $26,500 USD for this domain name, well it has 105,057 Backlinks from a lot of authoritative domains such as Wikipedia which means it gets a good level of traffic and has the authority to be built again by another person or company and rank well.
