What are the most expensive domain names that ever sold? What domain names have sold for millions upon millions of dollars?

It’s not always easy getting the domain name you want, especially if it’s one of what are called generic top-level domains. That might be something ending with .com, .org., edu, .net. or .info. We just searched online to see if we could get headlesschicken.com and we were told it’s a premium domain and would cost over $31,000. You buy a domain name from what’s called a registrar, and they reserve those names from registries. But if you wanted to buy headlesschicken.us, that would only set you back $4.99. We were told that in the first quarter of 2018, there were 333.8 million top level domain name registrations. Getting the name you want might not be easy, or might be expensive, as we just found out with our headlesschicken.com. Today we’ll see who paid the most though, in this episode of the Infographics Show, Most Expensive Domain Names Ever Sold.

First of all, if you’re wondering why .com domains can be so expensive, it’s just a matter of buying the best real estate. Brands are often most recognizable as .coms and it is a .com that will make your brand most visible in searches. As Forbes says, “Using a .com is the most authoritative way of guaranteeing your site will be found, along with providing other useful content around your brand.” It’s not just about being found, either, having a .com business gives it inherent value.

Ron 2shoes says:

Companies grab all the internet name for pennies to block anyone else from using them. Then sell them for huge profits. Like I looked at the name NPP (for non partisan polls) and found out that a chinese company owned the rights to it and will give it up to me for 56,000 dollars. They aren't using it, It is just one of the hundreds of thousands of possible names they took over to make a killing on.
It stinks.
