Thumbs up Juegos.com sold on $XX.XXX.XXX !!! games.com

Chena from Paraguay sold his top spanish domain juegos.com games.com on $XX.XXX.XXX, the rumor is $16.000.000, although i dont believe it is that much, he said the domain receives 100.000 visitors per day and makes $200.000 per month, so maybe sold on 8 x annual? Anyway no matter what he says on his blog it will be one of the top or the highest domain ever sold. He sold all in cash @ - @ wow!

if you also understand spanish read it here http://chrischena.blogspot.com

Great find, idnceo!

There was a rumor that AOL paid more than 10MM for games.com. So, it seems the prices for spanish domains are slowly catching up to their english counterparts.

Well if you read his blog, he went a few weeks ago through an operation so he decided to take more time for other things and begin to sell some of his domains.

Juegos.com will be the highest domain ever sold if the amount is right -at least he also says it is maybe the most expensive domain sold, but he also sold -and soon to be published the specific amount information- several other key domains in spanish in several million of dollars as well. He bought juegos.com on 1 million a few years ago, so you can imagine how much it costs now when it bring $200K per month.

I think he is also a part owner of NameDrive and probably the reason why IDNs are treated with a lot of respect there.

Maybe that explains where the funds for the ND facelift came from?...

Yeah you dont have to teach him, he knows about IDNs as guys here, even telling to this newbie about spanish idns :p

About sales, im also sure if Rick Schwart decides to sell sexo.com -sex.com- he would also get several millions for it.

Juegos.com's 200k PPC isn't by accident. It used to be a top download/game site before the PPC pages took over!

Somehow he managed to promote the name and then swap to PPC, boosting the name value in terms of multiples! What a neat trick and a smart man - he just got to convince some millionaire the concept of "multiples" and fetch his millions.

Still, as owner of some nice spanish IDNs, you should be smiling right now :-)

Does it matter? the point is the potential the domain has. I can do whatever i can with crap.com but it wont get $200K per month. I guess other guys see it like that, the domain already proved how much it can make.

He didnt have to convince nobody, even parking companies were trying to buy! the new owner is a gaming company.

Yes and no. His name is sold on multiples, or first thing i am looking at is why my Spanish idns do not get that traffic even a tiniest fraction of his 200k.
