Bargain(.com) May Cost $1M Or More
Looking to get a bargain on a domain name? Don't look for Bargain.com, which is one of the domain names being auctioned off at the Moniker domain name auction at next week's DomainFest, the domain name conference spearheaded by Los Angeles domain firm Oversee.net. In a pre-auction listing of domains to be auctioned off at the conference, Oversee.net, which owns both Moniker and SnapNames, put a $750,001 to $1M starting bid on the Bargain.com domain. Bargain.com is not the only high opening bid domain name; names such as Host.com, Security.com, and Work.com are listed at starting at between $1M and $5M. The highest domain name sale on record looks to be around $13.0M, for the site Sex.com, sold in 2010.
