The most expensive domain names on the Web

Website domain name tips posted by Fione Tan, head internet marketing coach.

Have you got your own .com name? Why is buying a dotcom name better than your local domain name, such as .com.my and .com.sg ? First of all, using a .com domain name potrays the idea that you are going for worldwide business, and this type of domain name is available for purchase by any person via the Internet. To check if your name is available, you can use domain registrars such as http://www.FreeDomainsRegistration.com 

Another business idea is to sell your domain name. Here are some of the most expensive domain name transactions.

1. Sex.com – sold for US$12 million dollars in 2005.

- the domain name was originally registered by a software salesperson, Gary Kremen, in 1994.

2. Porn.com – sold for US$9.5 million dollars in May 2007 to MXN Limited in the highest domain name sale in cash transaction

3. Business.com – sold for US$7.5 million dollars in 1999

4. Diamond.com – sold for US$7.5 million dollars in 2006

- sold to Ice.com by Odimo Incorporated (and included the sale of the website inventory too)

5. Beer.com – sold for US$7 million dollars in 1999

- originally owned by a web developer, Bill Fisher and sold to Interbrew company

How is the value of the domain name now? Well, looks like the idea of having a great domain name is still very much alive, and in June 2007, these 2 domain names were sold at a handsome price too.

1. Seniors.com – US$1.8 million dollars

2. CreditCheck.com – US$3 million dollars

I wonder how much would our company brand be worth in the coming years?

So, have you done a check for some domain names this year? Might you be the seller of the next multi-milli0n dollar domain name?

      Hi Fione,

      Its so easy to get your own domain, you are correct about using a .com I just got ZoneAlarmShop.com for $9.95 USD from GoDaddy, they are one of the cheapest on the web to register domian names. You can even park your domain and make money while you design you website!

      Hey I would love to come to your next networking group, how can I get an invite?
