City AM covered the Ebola.com domain going up for sale, they pointed to the $150,000 sales price.
Business partners Jon Schultz and Chris Hood are selling Ebola.com for $150,000, after purchasing it for an undisclosed sum in 2008.The Ebola outbreak currently gripping West Africa has killed over 4,000 people since it began in Guinea in February, according to estimates by the World Health Organisation (WHO).While there is currently no certified cure for the disease, a number of pharmaceutical companies, such as GlaxoSmithKline and MAPP Pharmaceutical, are trying to develop one.
So how much is Ebola.com worth ? Some like Theo from Domain Gang have said they felt the purchase price was rather conservative, with the money pharmaceutical companies make off of their vaccines he may be right. Legendary domain investor Michael Castello left a comment on Domain Gang that he inquired about the domain years ago, he was going to use it to point to Caution.com.
The domain name EbolaCure.com is for sale at $19,000. This domain was just registered on 4/3/14 and is under privacy. I would also say in these types of categories that .org can be quite powerful. The .org was regged in 2002 and is parked.
The Ebola.com name gets traffic and the owners have stopped parking it and provided links to those seeking information and Doctor’s Without Borders.
What do you think the domain is worth ?
