There are plenty of options when it comes to domain extensions, after .com many a start up has chosen the .io, .co, or the .me to name a few. Yet for many there still is that desire to trade up to the .com. Today was another example of that with Decoded.com selling for $50,000.
Decoded.co has been regged since July of 2010 and the company has offices in New York, London and according to their website, Decoded operate popups all around the world, recently heading to Shanghai, Singapore, Hong Kong, Palo Alto, Atlanta, Dublin and more.
Wired covered the company back in June of 2012
The .com was registered in 2003 and has been under privacy for awhile, the domain looked to be parked for many years. So even in a world with so much choice and a perfectly working .CO another company felt they needed to spend $50,000 on getting the .com.
Congrats to buyer and seller.
