According to its owner the Domain name gets 125,000 visitors on a daily basis without any content put up on it (YEAH JUST DOMAIN PARKING ) and he is close to earning 7 figure income from just SEX.COM domain parking monthly. We might see him in Forbes soon(JoKing). 😛

5.Fund.com

Fund.com went off for $10 Million, well $50 less than that ie.  $9,999,950  .  Run your mind why they left on $50 and get back to me with your whacky answers. The domain name was sold on 11th March 2008.

10.Casino.com

Casino.com turned to be a jackpot for Boss Media its initial owner by grabbing $5.5 Millions in pockets to give Boss Media a great bash.

The domain names are a great investment better than shares because these are safe investments which could be sold anytime the buyer wants to.  The list is quite huge with various domains touching the Million Mark to get them grabbed by the buyers making the day and life for the domain name sellers. Think differently, get a niche domain….You may leave behind Mark Zuckerberg and Bill Gates.  You neever know which domain name can get you rich in seconds.

      Yes , I used to buy and sell domain names earlier. It was a great way to get bunch of money. You can read my whole story here : About Me. It is nice but earning through domain names needs patience, tactics and luck.

    Well, this list is funny and obvious at the same time. There must have been a big competition for these domains. I’ve read in an article, that in 1989 when decisions were made about bringing the www to the public, one of the “geeks” working on it tried to persuade ABC network of quickly buying the domain, because it will probably be one of the first to go. They laughed at him at first, later they had to admit he was right.
