Press release out this morning on a big time sale
Australian Company Buys Accommodation.com and Accommodation.co.uk for $528,000 USD
SYDNEY, NSW, Sep 13, 2012 (GlobeNewswire via COMTEX) —
via PRWEB – Australian company Pixel Capital Pty Ltd has added two
travel oriented Domain names to its portfolio of web sites. The domains,
http://www.accommodation.co.uk , were bought for $528.000 USD.
Based on data from industry news portal DN Journal, Pixel Capital's
purchase is rated in the top three highest global domain sales for 2012.
It is the second time in less than a year that Pixel Capital has broken
into the top three of global domain name sales. Its purchase of
creditcard.net for $138,000 USD was the second highest price for a .net
domain name in 2011, beaten only by cars.net at $170,000 USD.
The accommodation.com site is gearing up for launch later this year.
Pixel Capital founder, Roland B. Bleyer, said: "The site will have a
sharing community focus. We are finalising arrangements with four
charities across the globe to which we will donate 10% of our profits.
We will also be rewarding travelers to share their stories and tips.
Accommodation.com will encourage a strong social media interaction."
Pixel Capital heavily entered the premium domain name race with the
purchase of creditcard.com.au for $160,000 AUD in 2009, still an
Australian record. Bleyer said, "For me, the growth in domain name value
far eclipses that of traditional, physical real estate. While we have
seen the property market show low to negative returns in recent times,
the domain market continues to deliver for investors that are willing to
take up the charge. With minimal upkeep (domain renewal fees) and a
market that is growing at such high rates I believe that domain names
should be part of a balanced investment portfolio."
