Which domain name just sold for $9.5M?

I can tell you it’s not mine. eJabs or Cruftbucket may be worth a million or two though 🙂

Porn.com just sold for this huge amount but it’s not the highest ever. That goes to sex.com – that was US$12 million. Geez, there is a lot of money in that industry isn’t there?

The owners of MXN Ltd. could not be reached for comment today. But in a statement on its Web site, the company said it’s not yet revealing its plans for Porn.com. “The possibilities with Porn.com are limitless,” MXN said. “To rush its development just to get something brand new ‘live’ would be foolish. We will carefully evaluate our options before we decide the direction we wish to take it.”

Porn.com was offered for sale at a live domain name auction in Las Vegas in March, but it never reached the reserve price after garnering bids in the $7 million range. The sale was finally arranged this week after private discussions after that event.

    Hmmm…I would have guessed that Bill Gates would pay millions for goldcoaster.wordpress.com! 😉

    Thanks for the link GC.

    Too bad this world seeks after the things that will be it’s demise in the end…

    Akismet caught it as spam for some strange reason.
    It’s back now – maybe the Gods don’t like you talking about the evil microsoft. 🙂

    Thought I would pay you back with a link, not that I could send you much traffic though.

    And it’s worth every penny. Seriously… I think the buyer got a steal.
