Ebook.com domain up for sale

Now this is a story you don't here everyday. The Australian tech company DNAML have decided to auction off their website domain, www.ebook.com. They picked an excellent time to do it, IMO. From the press release:

DNAML Pty. Ltd., the leading eBook solution provider, has announced that it will sell the domain name, eBook.com. Viant Capital, LLC, a San Francisco-based investment bank, is managing the auction process for ebook.com.

eBook.com is the #1 organic search result for the keyword “ebook” across Google, Yahoo, Bing and all other major search engines. The site has produced over 4.7 million eBook downloads over the past year alone, with only 12,000 titles in inventory.

eBook.com is the premier domain for eBook retailing. Its next owner will be able to generate tremendous traffic and dramatically improve their brand visibility without having to invest significantly in search engine optimization or paid search.


The sale of eBook.com is part of management’s recent decision to streamline DNAML’s focus on its core eBook technology platform and distribution/aggregation business.

Initial bids are due to Viant Capital by 2:00 pm PDT on September 30, 2010 with closing expected to occur before the end of October. Interested parties can contact Viant Capital on dnaml(at)viantgroup(dot)com

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader: "I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
