World’s most expensive domain name sold

Sex.com, the world’s most famous domain name, was sold for an amount of 13 million U.S. dollars (9.5 million Euros).

The Sedo GmbH, the German trading platform for buying and selling of domain names, announced Thursday.

Sex.com is therefore the most expensive domain name in the world, followed by fund.com and porn.com.

The sale of the domain name has been officially confirmed by the court in California. It is not known who the new owner is. “That we can not disclose” said a spokeswoman of Sedo GmbH.

The previous owner of sex.com, the U.S. company Escom, was declared bankrupt and was therefore forced to sell the domain.

Escom bought Sex.com in 2006 for an amount between 12 and 14 million U.S. dollars.

Sex.com is seen as the most valuable domain name in the world.
