You probably know that top domain names sell for big bucks, right? But exactly how much money are we talking about, and what are those top domains? Well, I just came across a list that has over 50 of the most expensive domains ever sold.

Here are the top 10:

Sex.com – Sold for: $14 million on January 19th, 2006

Fund.com – $9,999,950 – Sold in 2008

Porn.com – Sold for $9,000,000 sometime in 2007 (Update: OR $9,500,000 – Two different prices shown across many different sites/news reports)

Business.com – Sold for $7,500,000 in 1999 (Remember: This was pretty much a “business” sale with a developed name)

  1. Once in a while, I like to play a game with myself—> get drunk, relax and pretend I’m back in 1998 on my PC, having the foresight and vision to register domain names such as business.com and sex.com.

    Of course, I soon sober up and realise the closest I’ll ever get to these domains is sex-warehouse-directory-free.com or Business101Web.com

    🙁

  2. Most of the sold domain names are dot com. But there is few “not .com” domain names which break the record, for example bank.ht was sold for USD 1.4 million, inn.im for USD 1.8 million and motorcycle.se for USD 1.1 million

  3. I think those prices are fair. Domain names are so important these days.

    I bet having a great domain name can boost your hits massively.

    Casino.com is a great one to have.

  4. The price for AsSeenOnTV.com seems really excessive … Also we can notice that most of the top 10 domains were sold around 2000 … it has become more difficult now to sell domains…

  5. You can still invest and do well. I recently registered a name and sold it within months for mid 5 figures.

    I’ve plenty more good ones too 🙂

    You have to follow the trends, like *cloud.com

  6. Now I wish I had a chance back then when all the decent domain names were still unregistered. I would of taken them all 😛

    Then again there are still some great domain names available just you have to predict the future now.

  7. I bought Monstrous.com back in 1998 and I am happy with it but generally considered having a generic domain name does not help much with Google rankings ….
