Most Expensive Domain Names

Category: Internet, Release Date: 19-May-2011

The value of an easy-to-remember domain name cannot be underestimated in helping users find your site. Back in the early days of the internet (when domain names were free!) people were able to snap up popular words or phrases easily and resell a few years later for massive profits. Here is a sampling of some of the highest-priced domains and what they sold for:

  •, sold to QuinStreet for $16 million in 2009.
  • sold for $14 million in 2006
  • sold for $9,999,950 in 2008.
  • sold for $9.5 million in 2007.
  • sold for $7.5 million in 1999.
  • sold for $7.5 million. 
  • sold for $7 million dollars. 
  •, sold for $5.88 million in 2004.
  •, sold for $5.5 million in 2003. 
  •, sold to Toys ‘R Us for $5.1 million in 2009.
  • sold for $5.1 million in 2000. 
  • sold for $5 million. 
  • sold for $3.25 million. 

It’s hard to find a dot com that is available, but with new domains being released often (such as .co or the newly approved .xxx) there is still a chance you could secure the perfect domain for your business. Or who knows, maybe you’ll get lucky and your new domain will be at the top of the list above.
