Most expensive domain names

Many news agencies all over the world reported the story of a man named as Chris Clark, who sold the domain name of pizza.com, which he had purchased in 1994 for only $20, for $2.6 million.

It is amazing when people are ready to pay very big money for something that does not actually exist. Nevertheless, it is well-known that such domain names, which can stand for a whole industry, can be sold for millions of dollars.

Below you can find the list of most expensive domain names according to Yahoo! Tech. The list naturally includes the domain names that have been resold. It does not include such names as yahoo.com or google.com, which still belong to their original owners. As a rule, the market value of such domains may considerably exceed the value indicated below.

1. Sex.com, $12.5 million

2. Porn.com, $9.5 million

3. Diamond.com, $7.5 million

4. Business.com, $7.5 million

5. Casino.com, $5.5 million

6. Asseenontv.com, $5 million

7. Korea.com, $5 million

8. Wine.com, $3.3 million

9. Creditcheck.com, $3 million

10. Vodka.com, $3 million

Everything seems to be clear with sex.com and diamond.com. However, Asseenontv.com may cause bewilderment. Common logics says that the domain names consisting of only one word are supposed to be most valuable. However, there can be exceptions.
