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.
