How Much Did Solotees.com Sell For?

01Apr07

I must have been sleeping, but I didn’t notice until today that solotees.com had shut down.  Upon visiting the site I saw typical parked domain landing page.  My initial thought was that the guys had been careless and not renewed their domain and it had been snatched up by a domainer.   After looking around a little more it appears that this isn’t the case and the owner actually sold the domain.   If you visit the sitepoint.com page linked below it says the domain sold for $500.  A number of questions come to mind:

1) Why did he shut it down and sell the domain?  He was getting a decent amount of exposure in the industry, links from other sites and blogs, etc.

2)  Why did he sell for so little?  $500 seems awfully low for a good domain name that is an established site with good inbound links.

Here are some of the pages to check out on the topic.
