Consider that reportedly paid $4.5 million for the "icloud.com" domain name. Apple unveiled the shortly thereafter.
Cayman Island-based Frank Schilling, widely regarded as one of the world's most successful generic domain name investors with names such as Antarctica.com, said that cloud.com could fetch $3 million to $7 million if its new owner were to sell it.
"Anything less would have been a very good value for the purchaser," he wrote, in an email.
The sale price of the privately-held Cloud.com wasn't disclosed.
"Cloud computing is an extremely competitive and critical space for the companies operating there," said Schilling. "All companies in this space want to be relevant in the hearts and minds of their customers. Citrix is a very well capitalized company with a learned appreciation for the values of domain names."
