Incredible but true: the domain porn.com
has been sold by Moniker
to MXN Ltd for more than US $9.5 million!! This is the largest all-cash sale of domain name in history. In 2005, the domain Sex.com has been sold for US $12 million but the payment was partly cash and partly stock options. Other interesting sales made by Moniker in the past include domains such as cameras.com (sold for US $1.5 million), scores.com (sold for US $1.2 million), autos.com (sold for more than US $2 million).
