September 24, 2007 (Cherry Hill, NJ) – Portals.com, a high-level internet domain name, is currently on auction through September 27, 2007 at GreatDomains.com, the leading domain name marketplace powered by Sedo.com.

PORTALS.COM is viewed as one of the rarest internet-related URLs on the web. In active use since 1997, Portals.com is a top-tier, generic domain name providing lucrative access to numerous web-related business categories.

“A savvy developer can leverage this valuable domain for marketing a huge variety of web-oriented products and services: enterprise software solutions, portal development solutions, search engine tools and marketing,” said current owner, Larry Siegel.

Portals.com is currently a monetized news and information website providing streams of up-to-the-minute portals-related news and special features. One of the new breed of “generic” domain names, Portals.com has been generating revenue from organic searches – that is users who find the site simply by typing the category, portals, into their browser and then adding “.com.”

“This is a rare investment opportunity,” added Siegel. “Now someone can snap up Portals.com which offers instant high-prestige visibility, credibility and commercial viability.”

Those interested in making a bid on Portals.com have until 2pm ET on Thursday, September 27, 2007. Bids can be placed at GreatDomains.com.
