TOP 10 MOST EXPENSIVE DOMAIN NAMES OF ALL TIMES

The supply and demand rule applies to almost anything you can buy. The more popular and rare, the more expensive it becomes. With domain names, that’s no different. The internet is no longer clear from our lives, so a good domain name is just as important to some companies as a store in the best shopping street. How many people are left for a good domain name? You read it here in the top 10 most expensive domain names ever sold.

10. Porn.com (€ 8 million)

It will not surprise anyone that value of this domain name has reached the top 10. Ever since the founding of the internet, online porn is one of the most visited and viewed things. Companies therefore earn gold on these websites. The easier you find, the more visitors you can expect on your site. What’s Simpler Than Just Porn.com? That’s why this domain name was worth at least 8 million euros.

9. Fund.com (€ 8.5 million)

Simple domain names always do the best. In 2008, this address was sold for an amount that was still a record. In the meanwhile, the price of 8.5 million euros has already been taken over by several other domain names. Fund.com was sold to a large company that provides information about managing different funds. In addition, the domain is available for sale again. Soon a new record?

8. Hotels.com (€ 9.2 million)

In 2001, this domain was sold to the owner of the hotel Worldwide. Strikingly enough, he mentioned the price of this domain, which indicates how much he deserves with his company. The easy name of this website makes sure that many people use Hotels.com to book a hotel room, which makes the domain name worth every penny.

7. Sex.com (€ 11.8 million)

Over the years, this domain has been in various hands, all of whom would like to receive revenue from this highly visited website. One of the former owners has even revealed that the Sex.com domain is good for hundreds of thousands of euros on earnings per month. It is thus again clear where the internet is used primarily.

6. Insure.com (€ 13.5 million)

Imagine that as a company you buy a domain name for 130,000 euros and can resell it eight years later for ten times as much. Buying and reselling domain names can be a job, especially when you can buy this kind of popular address. Today, the website is owned by Quin Street, a company that buys multiple popular domain names.

5. 360.com (€ 14.3 million)

If you have more than seven billions of euros on the bank, you can spend some money on a popular domain name for your products. Zhou Hongyi from the well-known Chinese company Qihoo decided to spend a lot of millions for the perfect domain name for the hardware and software that he develops with his company.

4. Internet.com (€ 15.1 million)

This domain has also been purchased by Quin Street for an amount greater than Insure.com. Already in 2009, this domain had as much as 15 million visitors a month, all of which helped with revenue from ads. So Quin Street does not make it worthwhile to invest more than 15 million in this domain.

3. PrivateJet.com (€ 25.2 million)

Is there something extravagant than a private jet? So it’s not so crazy that a website for these planes is worth a lot of money. The most remarkable of this purchase is that this domain consists of two words, while all other expensive domains consist of one word only. This obviously makes the finding a lot better, so the internet was on its head when PrivateJet.com was taken for so much money.

2. VacationRentals.com (€ 29.5 million)

A wonder of miracle again comes with a two-word domain this list. Strikingly, the company HomeAway purchased this domain name only to be the competitor Expedia. Perhaps this is the most expensive way to counter another company, but if you have almost 30 million euros, you can not even bother anyone else.

1. Insurance.com (€ 30 million)

Yes, there you have them again. Quin Street is also the buyer of the most expensive domain name sold so far. Domain names that have something to do with insurance are apparently worth more than the most expensive 18+ websites together. Trading in domain names is and remains a strange world because the value of a domain depends entirely on the amount of people visiting a site. The question now is which website will break this record of 30 million euros.
