Yesterday saw the wholesale sale of gas.com.au for $25,000 on the expired domain auctions held by Drop.com.au.
The domain name was purchased by a Melbourne business, presumably for their heating and cooling business.
The lucky Melbourne buyer grabbed themselves a bargain after Air Liquide a large gas producer head quartered in Melbourne let this valuable domain name expire.
Covid 19 has seen a significant pivot by Australian businesses who have chosen to upgrade their domain names and websites to take advantage of lock downs and social distancing. Industry experts expect strong demand in premium .au domain names to continue.
