Decoded.co Spends $50,000 to get Decoded.com

There are plenty of options when it comes to domain extensions, after .com many a start up has chosen the .io, .co, or the .me to name a few. Yet for many there still is that desire to trade up to the .com. Today was another example of that with Decoded.com selling for $50,000.

Decoded.co has been regged since July of 2010 and the company has offices in New York, London and according to their website, Decoded operate popups all around the world, recently heading to Shanghai, Singapore, Hong Kong, Palo Alto, Atlanta, Dublin and more.

Decoded teaches people code in a day, taking people from zero skills, no knowledge and low confidence to coding a multi-platform geolocation-based app using HTML5, CSS and Javascript. Decoded believes that everyone can and should understand what goes on behind the screen.

Wired covered the company back in June of 2012

Learning to code is no easy task. Learning to code in just one day, well that’s not possible, right? Wrong. Co-founders Kathryn Parsons, Steve Henry, Richard Peters and Ali Blackwell joined forces in 2011 with the aim of taking people from zero skills and knowledge through to coding a multi-platform app using HTML, CSS and Javascript, in a day.

The .com was registered in 2003 and has been under privacy for awhile, the domain looked to be parked for many years. So even in a world with so much choice and a perfectly working .CO another company felt they needed to spend $50,000 on getting the .com.

Congrats to buyer and seller.
