For the first time in more than 20 years, the iconic Getty brand is being brought to market. The Getty.com domain name is an incredibly unique and valuable piece of intellectual property and a little piece of history for one of America’s most iconic families and brands.
Panama City, Panama (PRWEB) October 24, 2016
Media Options S.A. (MediaOptions.com), a leading broker of premium domain names with over 18 years of experience in the industry, announced today that “Getty.com” has been listed exclusively for sale with their firm.
“Getty.com” is a high-profile, iconic name linked to America’s economic and industrial revolution and conjures images of eminence, fortune and philanthropy. It is highly marketable and offers a unique branding opportunity to capitalize on a universally recognized symbol of power and influence.
The current owner of the name is Getty Realty Corp. (NYSE: GTY; gettyrealty.com), a publicly traded real estate investment trust, which specializes in the ownership, leasing and financing of convenience store and gasoline station properties. Getty Realty owns and leases 835 properties located in 23 states across the United States and Washington, D.C.
Getty Realty took title to the domain registration from a former tenant which operated a multi-state petroleum storage, marketing and distribution business until its bankruptcy in 2012.
Getty Realty, having re-acquired the domain name “Getty.com”, has determined that this unique asset is no longer core to its real estate business. It is therefore making this rare and valuable domain name available to the highest bidder.
Andrew Rosener, the CEO of Media Options S.A., said, “This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to own one of the most famous brands in American History, “Getty.com”. “It is rare for a brand like this to come to market these days. Once it sells it will likely never be available again! I feel honored to represent Getty.com, it is truly an icon.”
Established in 2007 by domain name investor Andrew Rosener, Media Options is an industry leading domain name broker that helps companies, big & small, acquire and sell premium domain names assets. Media Options, based in Panama City, Panama, has been involved in many of the largest and most important domain name sales in history. For more information visit:http://www.MediaOptions.com
