Sex.com on Who Wants Be a Millionaire

13

Sold in 2010 for $13 million, what URL is considered by the Domain Name Journal to be the most expensive domain name of all time?

I bet you can answer this question that appeared this afternoon on the television gameshow,  Who Wants Be a Millionaire? Of course the correct answer is Sex.com (after a very long saga), and the contestent answered the question correctly.

It’s neat to see domain names get attention like this in the mainstream, and it’s even better to see Ron Jackson’s  DN Journal get credit for providing the information.

Thanks to John Ferber, founder of Domain Holdings, for the tip and screengrab. The real question is what is John doing watching Who Wants to be a Millionaire in the middle of the day in the middle of the week? 🙂

    Elliot I believe you had that backwards. Our industry should not be one of personalities. It’s neat that Jackson was mentioned on TV, but it’s even better that domain names get attention in the mainstream media. I am not picking on you, just getting the train of thought to change for the better. In any case, congrats to DNJournal.com/Ron Jackson…

    • Ron is a friend, and I am happy to see the mention on national TV. He goes to every event, and if it wasn’t for his industry coverage, there would be far less information about the domain name industry and aftermarket out there.
