Christina Farr tracked down the real winner from the Obamacare website debacle. The owner of Healthcare.com.
From the article:
Miami-based web entrepreneur Jose Vargas is sitting pretty. The domain he purchased seven years ago for a little over $2 million is now one of the most lucrative web properties on the Internet.
That domain is Healthcare.com, which hundreds of thousands of people rushed to by accident on Oct. 1, when the United States government launched its online health exchange — at a very similar domain.
“We generated over 100,000 quote requests in October, and since HealthCare.gov launched the site traffic has increased 10 times,” said Vargas, who owns the site with business partner Matias de Tezanos.
