Connect.com is now officially a HubSpot property. The most popular marketing and CRM service provider, HubSpot, has announced that the company has purchased connect.com for $10 Million. For now, the newly acquired domain forwards to work.hubspot.com, which is used for a social network.
Before the sale, Connect.com had old hands of Whois privacy for a considerable period. Earlier, the domain name was redirected to a BrandForce landing page powered by Efty. The domain name is still registered for sale through Afternic, and the updated asking price had been $11.8 million.
It’s the second eight-figure domain sale we’ve known about after weeks. The previous week, Escrow.com revealed that it managed an escrow for NFTs.com last $15 million. That domain sale is the second after the acquisition of voice.com at $30 million for all-time publicly introduced domain sales.
Elliot Silver witnessed the domain purchase in April, and the company revealed the acquisition price in an SEC filing that George Kirikos spotted.
Hubspot CTO and Co-founder Dharmesh Shah have a different craze for good domain names. Starting this year, he paid $100,000 for WordPlay.com for a Wordle-like play game. Asking about the acquisition – Dharmesh suggested no comment.
With a $22+ billion market capitalization, HubSpot is publicly traded on the New York Stock Exchange. Presently, Connect.com has transferred to MarkMonitor, and it now has a MarkMonitor default landing page.
Connect.com is one of the most promising domain names to pronounce and work with because HubSpot is a publicly traded company; possibly, it will declare the purchase price in a future SEC filing. It will be impressive to see how the company uses this unique domain name in the short term.
