The Well is an community website that has been online since before Facebook, Twitter, and Google. The Well was founded in Northern California in 1985. Now Salon Media Group is putting The Well up for sale. Some parties were interested in the property purely for the domain name: well.com.
Salon Media Group attempted to sell Well.com in 2005, but they could not find a suitable buyer back then. Well.com has a subscriber base of 2,693 that pay roughly $100-$150 for an annual subscription.
