It’s one of those things were we look back at the ’90s and wonder why we were not smart enough to invest in single word domain names! Ah, I remember… seems to me that they were priced a lot higher back then. Still, knowing what I know now, it would have made me a fortune.
Well speaking for fortunes, it appears that Candy.com was sold for a decent $3 Million recently and based on this article here from TechCrunch. Once you consider an average search volume of 800,000 queries per month, the price tag suddenly seems pretty reasonable.
The previous owner is no fool. Just last year he was the same guy that sold ireport.com to CNN for a cool $750,000! Clearly, this is a man who has a decent grasp of domain speculation it would seem.
