On Tuesday, May 22, 2007, the sale of porn.com was reported.  The rights of porn.com were sold for a reported $9 million, which is the second highest reported amount paid for a domain since the internet’s existance.

In my opinion, $9 million is a great deal.   I am suprised it didn’t go for more.   Business.com sold for $7.5 million in 1999, and sex.com sold for over $11 million (stock+cash) in 2006.  In 1997, porn.com was reported purchased for $47,000.  What a deal!
