This is going to be interesting.
Sex.com For Sale in Foreclosure Auction | Elliot's Blog
Having never visited the site before (honest! ) I can't believe it's just a landing page!
What do you think it'll sell for. I'm going for $6.5 million
sex.com - For Sale
If sex.com does change hands again, I'd be expecting $25m / $35m for sure.
Watch this space...
Seems pricey in this climate. We shall see. I'd of course like it to break the record though. Anything to help people realise the potential and value of domains is a good thing!
It will 100% break the record
Going to disagree with you on this one BG, but happy to stand corrected next week if I am wrong. There is a lot more free porn on the internet these days, via the tube type sites, compared to the last time it was up for sale. Can't see it breaking the record.
Fancy a little wager to keep the dream alive (as in it breaks the record).
<Gary Kremen originally registered the domain name>
What was he doing in 1994 when he registered sex.com. In 1994 I remember we only had a university able to connect online. I am sure he had got a direct internet connection with Netsol with a less than 1 ms latency
I reckon around the same price as porn.com so $9.5m.
- as jwm said, lots of free porn these days
- it's just a landing page not a developed site
- it's a foreclosure sale
- Google Trends shows search for 'sex' in decline over last 2yrs particularly in USA
Having said that, as with any auction, you only need two people to want it really badly and who knows where the price could go.
