FKA200 has compiled a list of the most expensive domain name sales ever.  Many of these sales were completed before the dot-com bust in 2001.  It makes you wonder if the buyers were ever able to recoup their costs.

# Domain Sale Price Sale Date
1 Sex.com $14 million 2006
2 Fund.com $9.9 million 2008
3 Porn.com $9 million 2007
4 Business.com $7.5 million 1999
5 Diamonds.com $7.5 million 2006
6 Beer.com $7 million 2004
7 Casino.com $5.5 million 2003
8 AsSeenOnTV.com $5.1 million 2000

    1st, thanks for the link back to the post. I really appreciate it.

    2nd, I really think those that have spent just a huge amount of money (1-5million$$$) back in 2001 before the bust much have made a good majority of their money, if not more. For example: Beer.com @ $7million. That’s a LOT of money, but they created a huge brand on the site. Porn @ 9million = they have finally taken advantage of their awesome domain and developed a MAJOR source for “porn” videos… with the amount of traffic I bet they get through type-in and a possible $25-$40/sign up that they probably make through affiliates, they probably make a couple grand / day. Remember, this is just a guess. If Spyware.com can make $100K/month (Conceptualist.com), then my guess is that these sites definitely make a great amount of money.

    Once again, thanks for the link back!
