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? 🙂
lol, good question elliot — i am unfortunatley sick, cant remember the last time i was home on a weekday watching tv, probably 10+ years ago..
Get well soon.
Get well soon.
and thanks for the screenshot but too bad you cant see my face properly ( on background on the left) .. 😉
Wow, nice question. Congrats to Ron for being seen as a source by the mainstream media
Congratulations to Ron Jackson. Now, why do these putzes say “considered by”? It’s in the Guinness book of records.
Just curious how difficult the question was considered to be. Does anyone know the dollar value of the question?
How much was LG.com?
You’d have to ask the seller, although I am pretty sure the terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Did you read http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LG_Electronics ? If the information would not be true, I believe seller or buyer would ask Wikipedia to remove such information from the web.
I wouldn’t believe everything you read on Wikipedia.

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.
Excellent!!!! Congrats DNJ!
