So how much did InterX pay for its domain name?

Six figures or seven?

Last week, while prepping for a piece on InterX's results (out today), we noticed that the company's Web site URL had changed from Interxtechnologies.com to Interx.com. Last time we looked, Interx.com was owned and operated by a small US concern.

So how much did InterX pay for the domain name. It's not saying - the amount is "commercially confidential". Which in our book, means a hell of a lot of money.

If the US company formerly known as InterX had any sense, it would have demanded - and got - a high six/low seven-figure sum, for its URL. We reckon a million dollars may have changed hands. Anyone know better?

Update (filed 1.07pm)

From Inter X's financial results press release:

"Costs of £603,000 were incurred in relation to the securing of domain names and related trademarks".

So the confidence thing was really a closed period thing. ®
