Master of Your Domain Names

Funny. A couple of examples:

Experts Exchange is a knowledge base where programmers can exchange advice and views at www.expertsexchange.com/

Looking for a pen? Look no further than Pen Island at www.penisland.net/

In related news, can you believe this guy got $2,600,000 for the domain “pizza.com”? He had paid $20/year to maintain ownership since 1994 then decided to see what he could get for it.

Business.com sold for $7.5 million in 1999, and so did diamond.com seven years later, according to an industry trade magazine. In 2006, a Russian alcohol exporter bought vodka.com for $3 million, while sex.com sold for about $12 million in cash and stock. Last month, fund.com sold for $10 million.
