    I was wondering when the domain would be sold... But I did not see the $75k price bump coming. But a marijuana company purchasing the domain? That raises some questions to my mind.

    With the news of Ebola in NY, domain value definitely went up. This shit just getting started.

    This is not their first attempt -

    "Ebola.com is not the only disease-related site owned by Blue String Ventures. The company also owns the domain names birdflu.com and H1N1.com, but Hood points out that the company does not only focus on domains which refer to disease and tragedy."

    If you have medical technology that can cure the ebola, so this domain name is useful.

    I wonder how he got hold of this domain for so long. Had an extra ordinary exact match domain which Godaddy literally took out of my account and closed my account as well. From there, I stopped domaining business. No point of dealing with douchebags.

    Looks like the site is still for sale guys. Look in the footer and it says it's still for sale.
    Maybe they are just planning on dressing it up a bit and flipping it.

    They really just made it a simple PBN site...Might have a reason for doing it that way?
    If they want to flip the site, a more professional outlook would do a better job.

    Anyway, nice money made...
