Alternative fossil fuels are a big business. This market trend no doubt influenced the sale of woodpellets.com yesterday, which sold at auction for $115,000 USD, or £70,676. Because of their burning efficiency, wood pellets have become a popular biomass fuel for green furnaces and other applications.
Another recent large sale is OnlineEducation.com. It sold on eBay to domainer Alex Alexander for £67,603 ($100,000 USD).
Personally, I think online education is a much more profitable niche than wood pellets and am surprised that OnlineEducation.com didn’t sell for more. With the economy facing tough times, more and more people are going back to school, with many of them doing so online.
