Congrats to Central Nic on the sale of GB.com which we expect to be a seven-figure sale, Jamie Zoch broke the news yesterday and had it confirmed by George Hong of GUTA.com, you can read more about that from Jamie’s blog Dot Weekly.
I was reading last years company statement from Central Nic and found out they own approx 37,500 Domain Names in their own company portfolio see below.
So I had quick look to see what other domain names they own in there portfolio and while I know about many two-letter domains they own and use as subdomains which they sell they also have some really nice generic domain names such as Fares.com, Claims.com, Deleted.com, EmailMe.com, DiamondClub.com, VoucherCode.net, and multiple LLL Domains plus many more.
Many of the domains appear to be parked at Bodis.com or ParkingCrew.net some are redirected back to the CentralNic.com Corporate website and others throw up errors while loading.
I am not sure if this was ever covered before by anyone but I thought it would be interesting to share, GoDaddy has been swallowing up domain portfolios for fun over the past two years to add to its NameFind.com business will we see more Domain Registrar build up there own portfolios like Central Nic?
