Each domain sale by Rick Schwartz is always exciting and always big. Last week Rick announced the upcoming sale of the domain PunchBowl.com – which re-directs to MyPunchbowl – a website that helps you plan a party that your guests will always remember by bringing your party to life with ideas, invitations, favors, gift registries, photo/video sharing, and more. What a great transaction. For Rick and for MyPunchBowl.
According to Rick’s blog post that discusses the sale:
“In the not too distant future I will be announcing my 12th domain sale is PunchBowl.com. Another multiple 6 figure deal plus other considerations. There should be a press release forthcoming and the buyer will decide how much of this to go public with as there will be a confidentially clause .”
No official press release has been published yet, but with the name already re-directing looks like just a matter of time. They also have a blog, but haven’t announced news of the Domain Name.
Rick has made a number of landmark sales over the years, and it’s been an interesting domain ride to follow his story. His trackrecord and success with Domaining and more importantly, his insights on his blog are a wonderful source of information. Hopefully, the media and end-users take more notice on these landmark deals. The sale of Candy.com which was huge in terms of a domain name, didn’t seem to get that much press in the media, but with more and more notable sales by Rick and other domainers, more people will take notice.
Some of Rick’s notable domain sales include:
236.com to IAC
iReport.com to CNN for $750K
