Yahoo! Continues Dumping their Domain Assets by Selling Domain Name ClassicGames.com for $25,000

"Yahoo Games"

If ClassicGames.com was previously owned by Yahoo! as everything indicates, Yahoo! has been on a tear lately, selling off several of their domain name assets with the recent sales of MusicVideos.com, LookUp.com, and FreeComputers.com. They also made news when they sold contests.com last year. However, they did make a notable purchase: OMG.com for $80,000 for their Celebrity News web site.

In early January CookingGames.com sold for a whopping $350,000 to Hallpass Media. Sales petered off after that for “games” domains with ArcadeGames.org selling for $1,060 and ViewGames.com selling for $300 on Snapnames – that is, until today.

Sedo GreatDomains announced the sale of ClassicGames.com for $25,000.

Back in 1997, ClassicGames.com, was an internet game room, that featured multiplayer games online ranging from Chess to Freecell. But by 2000, the website ClassicGames.com was Yahoo! Games that offered games for kids. In 2005 was still Yahoo! Games.

Take a look at the screenshot on the left from 2005 via Archive.org. Around 2006, the site was no longer operational, and a message in the footer simply read, “For information regarding www.classicgames.com, please contact: ovdm_ysbdomain@yahoo.com”.

Leap of Faith Financial Services Inc (http://www.loffs.com/) who own over 500 domain names, appear to be the new owners according to the Registrant records. The domain name gets over 60,000 searches globally.
