Domain name broker Andrew Rosener recently delved in to building out an online business, launching a daily deals aggregator at DX.com. I ventured over to the site to see how things were progressing and noticed a dramatic change to the layout and what appeared to be new ownership in the whois. DNN contacted Rosener who confirmed with us that the domain name was sold.
Rosener told us “I’ve only owned the domain for 60 days and the site hasn’t even been up for 2 weeks but DealExtreme.com made us an offer we couldn’t refuse.” DealExtreme.com, based out of Hong Kong, is one of the oldest deal sites for electronics. Fellow blogger Andrew Alleman questioned whether the domain name would help stand out in that space. The rarity of 2 letter domains like this obviously caught DealExtreme’s attention, so I guess we found out that the domain stands out.
Rosener told DNN he’s been looking for new projects to invest in like his daily deals site. Since DealExtreme.com wanted the domain only, Rosener intends to continue offering his daily deals service under a new name, DailyDeal1.com. He also revealed that he has plans to launch a new video game site soon.
