I have only sold 35 of my 6500 domains.
This was the 4th largest recorded cash domain sale ever!
(Purchased for $42,000 in 1997) It is important to note that this domain had career earnings in excess of $15 Million via pay per click earnings and never had adult content)
989.com $818,181.81 (registered for $100 in 1997)
899.com $801,000 (registered for $100 in 1997)

The following were early sales to establish domain value. Registered between 1996 and 1999 for $35-$100 each.
eCruise.com $100,000 & Stock
235.com for $100,000
236.com to IAC (Undisclosed)
I hope you’re right. I have no idea what you have in mind but I always felt 2008 would be a great year. Can’t wait.
What a tease! LOL
C’mon, another hint?
telecom.com sold for $700k…thats a big bang
a bigger bang would be if Rick Schwartz puts all his domains for sale with no reserve in the next traffic auction…this would be a big bang for 2008
Fired Up !!!
I am fired up about this information….I can’t wait to hear about this…Give me my domain fix now Rick!!!
wow, just read the news at DomainNameNews.com Congrats to all involved.
Rick, what are your thoughts on what networksolutions.com have done with their whois searches? i think it’s down right unethical!
I read your recent comments in dnjournal and would like to know more. Can I ring you and if so, what is your tel. no and timezone (I am in New Zealand)
Thanks and regards
i have read you writings about forces gathering to take domains away from their owners because of their rising value..monetarily and for traffic.
respond in more detail are you talking about registered trademark domains?i own several generic domains and have filed a trademark application and also filed a notice of opposition the
uspto has repeadly stated
a generic name is a generic domain.
even if the rules are changed do you see any consquences for generic domain holders? art.com creditcards.com are ipos..
even countries and cities and states cannot be trademarked they are in the public domain their is
a uspto law clearly stating this.
