The top 20 most expensive domain names ever sold are in the table below. Please keep in mind that most of the “high profile” sales are kept private and confidential because they are handles by brokerage firms and companies that do not care to have that information public. There are, however, the ones that are made public. Out of the ones made public, these are the top 20 of all time.
We like to look at these names and see how many of these names would be considered “brandable” domains? So if we look at the list it is mostly made up of single dictionary words. Very strong words like Insurance, Insure, Porn, Slots, Casino, Sex and many others. These are highly searched terms and are extremely valuable. There are a few surprises on the list. At #2 is VacationRentals.com. I would think Hotels.com or Sex.com would be higher. Another one high up on the list to me is PrivateJet.com.
I would love to hear your feedback below. In my opinion all of these names are “brandable” domain names. Some are much better than others but they are all very strong. Enjoy.
