    Maybe there are lots of restrictions on the stock, making the deal sound better than it is. On the face of it it clearly sounds very impressive indeed.

    Sounds like a website sale to me (not based solely on the merits of a domain name).

    wordpress sitewith 7 million alexa Foz and they relaunch it in April
    it ain't a website sale
    they got some nice features on site like magazine but if you check it issue one is dated july 2012 so that is new owners by the looks doing stuff

    but how much is cash and how much is stock?
    I could sell you stocks in my 10 year old volvo estate. £50k a share. 100 shares :)
    stocks don't mean shit
    if it's legit then taxes have to be paid or Uncle Sam is banging you up. so will show up somewhere

    it may be just linkbait
    it may be totally kosher

    If Ron Jackson says it's an ok deal that's all I need

    Says it stock and share.... thought it was parked and sold for $30,000 in 2005 my feeling it’s a publicity stunt by why choose a name like that its not as if everyone’s searching the net for them anyhow…

    Will be safe to fly in the sky with all those elephants flying around ....

    An entry level netjets account costs about $250k and you only get like 20 hours a years flight time for that or something crazy...

    A 15 seat medium/long range jet costs at least $20m+...most likely way more....even used they are insanely expensive and costly to maintain etc.

    If this deal is legit then if you put it into context of the end product value etc then its not that outrageous imho

    If anyone wants to buy JetHire.co.uk from me, I am prepared to do the deal at only a small fraction of $30 million :D
