The domain name MyCornerstoneLoan.org just sold on GoDaddy Auctions for a whopping $42,003 USD, that’s pretty amazing for a three-word dot org that doesn’t mean a lot to most.
The domain name MyCornerstoneLoan.org was registered in 2011 and owned by the Utah System Of Higher Education until it recently expired and has been auctioned off but why so much if this domain name?
Well, the below from ahrefs shows you why over 6,000+ Backlinks from a strong financial backflow in the education sector but that’s still a huge amount of money to drop as ultimately that traffic will disappear over time.
