    Link: Man Gets $2.6m for Domain Name - He bought the URL in 1994 for just $20. What`s the domain name?

    Surprised pizza hut didn`t buy it. It would`ve got them a lot more views...

    I am honestly thinking about investing in domain names.
    Can someone explain to me how do you get a domain name and why do websites like godaddy sell it?

    reminds me of the guy who bought the domain name of the current pope before he was elected and now the vatican wants to buy it off him, or something to that effect.

    Haha, good find LillianDulci, I`ll check it out. Mine is more obvious: Survey on the front page asks When do you order pizza the most? and one of the answers is When playing World of Warcraft.

    ... Guilty! :(

    i`m actually pretty surprised that one of the major pizza companies didnt buy it. i mean, i see a coupon for pizza hut and google-ads for just about every pizza company ever on the front page, but that`s it. he couldve probably got more money out of it if he waited for one of them to make a bid.

    unless of course one of them did buy it, and just hasnt updated the site yet.

    but even knowing i couldve gotten more, i`d still be happy with $2.6m

    Pizza.com isn`t as valuable to Pizza Hut or Dominoes as your might think. They already have a strong brand with recognised domain names. How many people are going to type in pizza.com rather than google Pizza Hut or Dominoes Pizza if they don`t already have contact information?

    Sex.com is worth a bucketload now, but when the internet was young the guy who owned it had it stolen from him, by a guy who just sent a letter to the hosting company saying `Yeah, he`s giving it to me`. So the guy who now has sex.com back is actually in debt for his legal fees.
