The most expensive domain names - part 1

This is part 1 of article “555 Most Expensive Domain Names Ever“. If you are newbie, maybe you don’t know what “domain name” is, anyway.

According to wikipedia (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Domain_name):

„ A domain name is an identification string that defines a realm of administrative autonomy, authority or control within the Internet. Domain names are formed by the rules and procedures of the Domain Name System (DNS).“

In other words any name enlisted in the DNS is a domain name. In general, a domain name represents an Internet Protocol (IP) resource, such as a personal computer used to access the Internet, a hosting server of a web site, or the web site itself or any other service communicated imparted through the Internet.

In 2015, it had been registered over 294 million domain names!

As domain names are some kind of property, it is not surprising that in the passage of time has been developed a large trading market for buying and selling domain names. Are you curious which are the highest prices for a certain domains? Well, I can tell you that some of them have achieved a price of few millions dollars!

Would not that be wonderful?

Buy a domain for $10 and sell it for a million dollars! There are many people who do just that. Secret of this business is like in any other. Buy cheap and sell expensive.

Some kids are buying some domain names in the nineties, and now these domain names turned them into millionaires. Nowadays, the best domain names are pure gold!

So, which are the most expensive domains ever sold?

That’s enough talking, here is the list of 555 most expensive domains ever sold!
