No big surprise here, but it looks like the folks over at Fiverr, the popular website that lets people sell gigs for $5, are the new owners of fiver.com.
Though the domain remains behind WHOIS privacy at GoDaddy, it recently started forwarding to fiverr.com, and the domain name is hosted on the same IP address.
Back in late May, Sedo reported the sale of Fiver.com for $70,000, which led to obvious speculation that Fiverr acquired the domain name.
Fiverr hasn’t garnered much attention in the news lately, and traffic to the site plummeted according to a rough estimate by Compete from 260,000 visitors in March 2011 to just 80,000 visitors a month later.
Considering the amount of traffic fiver.com was receiving before the acquisition (estimated in the thousands), it may have been just what Fiverr needed.
