Website flipping is nothing new and we all know people create website and sell them to make money and you will be surprised to know that people also make money by domain flipping. Like Website flipping, domain flipping is different. In this case, you buy exclusive domain names like (Porn.com, Education.com, World.com) and sell them at highly price using services like Flippa or private sell.
We all know that domain name selling is one of the coolest business where you can make good money just by trading for domain name. The suprising factor here is, the amount at which domain names have been sold. Here I’m compiling a list of most expensive domain names ever sold. This list has been updated in 2012, and in case if you find some other domain name has replaced the current list, feel free to let me know.
One thing which is common in this list of expensive domain names is the One word. Most of names are one word and are highly searched words with high CPC. Another thing to be noticed here is all are .com domains and we don’t see any single .org, .info listing, which again shows the importance of .com names.
I’m sure you will be surprised to see the list of top most expensive domain name here and the price. Sex is the keyword everywhere and this is true in the case of this list. Porn websites are the biggest seller.
Top Most expensive domain names:
Insure.com topped the list as it was sold for a mind blowing price of $16 million. Rest of the list remains unchanged.
$13 millions the most expensive domain sale of all the time. Earlier Sex.com was redirected to other site but recently this site is turned into full-fledged porn site using a Pinterest like template. Now, wonder Sex is one word which is highly searched anywhere and how much traffic this site must be getting? Is this domain worth that price..Oh yes!
Sold in 2008 with a price tag of $9,999,950
I was highly expecting to see names like these in the list and these are also the highest selling keywords. Porn.com was sold at a price tag of $9,500,000 in 2007.
Facebook the worlds most popular social networking site invested $8.5 million in November 2010 to grab fb.com. This will be worth, only if Facebook will do something meaningful out of Fb.com.
Website which is being use as business related search engine and for advertisement program. It’s been sold at a price of $7,500,000 almost 10 years back in 1999.
Diamond the girl best friend. Though the price at which it was sold is right. It was sold at $7,500,000.
Some more interesting names are yet to come including this. Though I’m not sure if you expected this but I also expected to see alcohol.com but the good news is domain name like wine.com, vodka.com and similar name are among the top seller. Beer.com was sold at a price tag of $7,000,000.
Sold almost 9 year back in 2000 with a price tag of $5,100,000.
The only domain name with a country name in the list which was sold for $5,000,000.
It’s actually sad to see casino.com almost at the end of top 10 list anyways for the info it was sold at a price tag of$5,500,000
SEO is one of the most popular search terms in search engine and as name suggest it’s a SEO related website which was sold at a price tag of $5,000,000
These domain names are followed by names like :
Freeporn.com, AltaVista.com, software.com, pizza.com, England.com and more.
Now, if you ever think of making money via domain flipping and found an amazing domain name which is available, grab that name right away. You can later on sell those domains for higher price.
At this time I have following two domain names which are available for sell:
- Diamondsforwomen.com ( Price : $499) For selling Diamonds
