JoeThorn.net went for a big number at GoDaddy auctions. The domain name closed at $31,450. Joe Thorn is the Lead Pastor of Redeemer Fellowship. He has an active Twitter/X handle with a different domain name in the bio.
It seems odd he would let his .net domain name expire. Ahrefs shows a domain rating of 39 with over 56,000 backlinks from 582 websites.
$31,450 seems like a lot for this name as I don’t see how someone going to benefit from those kinds of backlinks.
