How I know Shiksha.com could be Infoedge’s foray into education

A couple of weeks ago, I got to know of a big transaction in the Domaining world. Shiksha.com was bought by Infoedge (Naukri.com) for an undisclosed amount. This info was interesting as it came in close heels with this announcement by Infoedge (Naukri.com) on their foray into the booming education market.

Now today, during my regular reading on domain investments, I saw ‘Siksha.com‘ (notice it being Siksha and not Shiksha) being bought by another South Delhi based software company for USD 10,000.

Okay – so here is what I foresee: Siksha.com will get a lot of type-in traffic once cash rich Infoedge starts to advertise using mass media. Free traffic for Siksha.com and ad revenue for Pragati Infosoft . Could that would force Infoedge (Naukri.com) to buy the domain by adding another zero to the figure? Or maybe am speculating too early. Watch this space.

Exciting. Domaining is getting into mainstream! And I can be with the FBI for unearthing something which is virtually unknown to many.

Edit: The domain records of Shiksha.com now carry InfoEdge as the owner with the VP (Technology) Manish Gulati’s Yahoo address.
