Hi fritz9, According to the Guinness World Records the highest price ever paid for a domain name was $7.5 million. Most Expensive Internet Domain Name "The Internet domain name business.com was sold by Texan entrepreneur Marc Ostrofsky on Dec 1 1999 for £4.6 million ($7.5 million)." FIVE MOST EXPENSIVE DOMAIN NAMES Business.com ? $7.5 million AsSeenOnTv.com ? $5.1 million Altavista.com ? $3.3 million Wine.com ? $2.9 million Autos.com ? $2.2 million http://www.guinnessworldrecords.com/content_pages/record.asp?recordid=53433 However in January of 2006, Sex.com was sold for $12 million, making it the most expensive domain name so far.
