Hubspot acquired the domain name connect.com for $10 million last quarter. Elliot Silver noticed the domain acquisition in April, and the company disclosed the purchase price in an SEC filing that George Kirikos spotted.
The company currently forwards the domain to network.hubspot.com, which is used for a social network.
Hubspot co-founder and CTO Dharmesh Shah is a fan of good domain names. Earlier this year, he paid $100,000 for WordPlay.com for a Wordle-like game.
It’s the second eight-figure domain sale we’ve learned about in as many weeks. Last week, Escrow.com announced that it handled escrow for NFTs.com last $15 million. That domain sale is second only to voice.com at $30 million for all-time publicly announced domain sales.
