Sedo currently has about 11.5 million domain names listed for sale, but two major recent transactions have standed out from the rest. Server.com sold for $770,000 and there is no content on the website. Server.com is just displaying the GoDaddy parked page as of right now. However the domain name receives 12,000 unique visitors per month anyway.
Jesus.net sold for $124,337. Jesus.net is currently forward to JesusInternetProject.com. Originally Jesus.net forwarded to Christ.com before being sold. Considering we have been in tough economic times, I am impressed by these numbers.
But it appears that domain names are becoming a hot commodity once again. Pizza.com sold for a couple million and so did YP.com. Toys “R” Us bought Toys.com for $5.1 million. And G&J Holdings bought Candy.com for $3 million.
