From Japan to China: New owner for 999 .com
The triple digit dot com domain, 999.com, changed hands recently via Sedo.
Registered in 1995, the domain 999.com remained in the hands of Japan-based “Virtual Communications Corporation” for several years.
In fact, the previous Japanese admin contact domain, WebSolutions.co.jp was dormant since 2007 – according to Archive.org
The new owners are from China, a country gone “loco” over numeric domain names, as numbers have a special meaning in the Chinese culture and modern communication media.
Definitely an interesting sale; the selling price for 999.com is expected to have been in the mid five figures.
