Top Domain Sales of All Time

In Domain News by Brannans.com

This is a list of some of the highest prices paid for premium domain names. The list is updated as new information comes in but most sales are done under non-disclosure so it’s difficult to know how much some domain names have been sold for in the aftermarket. Also, in some cases business assets were also acquired with the transaction so this is not a “pure domain name” list. That stands to reason though, most domain names are developed this day and age so finding a domain name that isn’t developed is less likely than it was in the early 2000’s.
