Every website has to have a Domain Name, and many sellers, such as GoDaddy, or NameCheap sell them for as little as US$7.
The first domain name was registered in 1985, but over the years, domain names were recognised as a crucial part of any marketing plan, and companies new that the return on investing in a top level domain name would be huge, if it was well chosen.
It’s hard to get a good one these days without paying a hefty price, and prices have skyrocketed. If you had a spare $50 million would you buy a domain name, or a Superyacht?
These are the Top 10 most expensive domain names:
CarInsurance.com — $49.7 million
Insurance.com — $35.6 million
VacationRentals.com — $35 million
PrivateJet.com — $30.18 million
