Dot Com Domains For Resale

from the picking-through-the-remains-of-the-internet-heydays dept

Remember those good old days (only a year ago) when you could buy a good domain name for only $7.5 million? Well, now that all these dot coms are failing, many are trying to sell off their domain names. While I’m sure that some companies will end up paying way too much for a lot of these domains (mainly for the traffic) I wonder if there’s a negative effect of associating yourself with these failures. In the end I wouldn’t be surprised if some of these domains end up going to porn sites (as is mentioned in the article) as those are sites that are actually making money.
