Business.com for sale $400M

WSJ: Business.com Could Hit Jackpot on Auction Block

Quote:
Entrepreneurs Jake Winebaum and Sky Dayton were widely mocked for lavishing $7.5 million on a single Internet domain name -- business.com -- back in 1999. It was the single highest price paid for a domain name at the time.

The company that grew out of business.com -- a search engine used by businesses to find products and services -- is now on the auction block, and could fetch anywhere between $300 million and $400 million, according to people familiar with the matter.

Re: Business.com for sale $400M

The title is a little misleading as I'm sure the business itself would be more than 95% of the purchase price with the business.com domain the rest.

The cool story was the kid who regged business.com and sold it 3 years later for the 7.5 mill

Re: Business.com for sale $400M

I thought business.com was sold twice, once for 150,000 (which ain't bad if that was off a reg fee) and then again a couple of years later for 7.5 mill.

the 400 million kinda reinforces the development aspect of domains.
