I remember Rick from the old days. I sold him Portugese.com for what by todays standards could be called lunch money. Rick has rebranded his services under the Latonas.com name so that he can be considered a full fledged domain auction house. His first major auction using his new auction platform debuts at Traffic. I look forward to seeing it in action.
Here’s the press release :
