Domain Name Sale

By Deane Barker on January 24, 2006

Source: sold for $12 million: I think this is a record. The last domain sale I remember even approaching this was, which sold for $7.5 million in 1999., long coveted as potentially one of the most lucrative sites on the Web because of its catchy name, has been sold for about $12 million in cash and stock… sold for $2.75 million in 2004. went for $1.3 million in 2003, and went for $3 million in 2000.

Someone offered me $15,000 for a couple of months ago. You can get for $800. Sliding to perhaps the bottom of the barrel, is for sale with no price specified.

The oddest domain name I saw for sale while snooping around for this post? I’m willing to bet the market for that domain name is pretty narrow, considered there’s exactly one Broward County in the country.
