err, I was being sarcastic about the beauty.cc sale, it was a very doubtful transaction, :laugh:
here's a personal site with a pretty accurate view on it in my opinion,
"8/21/01 This sale of One.cc for $300,000 US is allegedly BS, similar to the sale of beauty.cc for $1,000,000 US some time ago. Both of those reported CC sales are alleged to be scams to stir up interest in the basically dormant CC country code. They are also believed to be insider deals involving the CC Registry. That is done by allegedly packaging zillions of free or very low cost new cc registrations allowed to be sold by the new cc registrar, in exchange for a lump sum payment and other insider transaction consideration. That scenario was basically verified some time ago involving the alleged scam sale and publicity of beauty.cc. This appears to be little more than another attempt by the desperate country code registries to stir up interest in their basically worthless domain names, like the alleged fraudulent marketing and sales of .WS and .TV names, for example.
