Although social.com received a $2.5 million bid at SnapNames by the time bidding closed online, it still fell far short of the $5 million+ price tag the owner Scott Carter was looking for.
Since the auction closed on June 15, the website has since gone offline.
Scott Carter who tweets under the username @Scott_Carter has been quiet on Twitter.
Who knows what’s to become of social.com now. But the domain that TechCrunch said could very well end up being one of the most expensive domain sales of all time, has turned out to not be such a hot commodity after all.
No details on a closed-door deal have emerged, but it’s certainly within reason.
Last year’s auction of the domain slots.com by Moniker did not reach its reserve price during its auction, but 11 minutes after the auction closed, Moniker received a bid for 5.5 million USD via an absentee proxy bid as reported by Jamie Zoch of DotWeekly.
