£20 web domain name to go for £1million

£20 web domain name to go for £1million
26/06/2008

Quote:
A businessman who bought the domain name http://www.£.com for £20 nine years ago is hoping to auction it for more than £1million today.

Richard Haigh's internet address is one of only two domain names in the world with a single symbol - the other is the euro - and it is expected to be snapped up by a bank at the Amsterdam sale.

Richard, 32, from Nottingham, said: "I bought it before the internet really took off and while prices for domain names were low.

"Whatever happens at the auction, its sale will change my life for ever."

Only if Nameprep still accepts them.

Most people spending a million quid will do due dilligence. Its not like it was a million bucks or something.

Thanks Steve,

I've successfully make renewal for my €.net 2 days ago, so, I believe that VeriSign won't terminate those existing symbol IDNs - if the owner continue renewal them...

I would renew it for as many years as possible, giving "payment" for an "agreement" to have the name registered for the next 10 years.

Maybe not, but if they won't resolve, what is the point?
