Using the web address, the web site provides information on the company’s business, projects, consulting, and still one of the most interesting sections is the Domain Name Sales & Acquisitions section, which  describes a handful of the more than one hundred thousand domain transactions that Worldwide Media has been involved in since the nineties.

The last time I wrote about Worldwide Media, there were 13 offers listed in the Recently Rejected $10,000 and above section, including one offer for for $100,000. 

Since then, at least one more offer of $150,000 for was rejected, but now it appears the buyer and Worldwide Media have finally agreed on a number:  $230,000.

According to the most recent domain name sales section which are not subject to a NDA (Non-Disclosure Agreement), Worldwide Media has sold the domain name for nearly quarter of a million dollars.

Interesting Notes

Some interesting notes on the recently rejected offers:, if you recall, was hand-registered in March 2010 for less than $22, then acquired by Mike Berkens for $18,000 through Sedo.  

While Mike did turn down a six-figure offer for, he did sell  recently for $77,000. was acquired in 2008 at Moniker for $22,500. sold for $530 back in April.

There have been some great success stories in the Domain industry in 2010.

With Mike Berkens’ new corporate site, and a range of consulting services being offered, 2011 looks to be a promising year for individuals and companies looking for help, particularly for those stepping into new extensions.  In addition to branding and development tools and services, Worldwide Media will be providing consulting on new extensions.
