* This information is based on published news reports, as well as data collected starting in 2004 by DNJournal.com, the industry’s main trade publication. It should be emphasized that this list only contains sales that have been publicly reported. Most domain sales occur privately, and often the parties are prohibited from disclosing the details. It should also be noted that in some transactions, the buyer acquires not just a domain, but also other assets. This list is focused on sales of domains only.

** included the sale of hipoteca.com, Spanish for “mortgage”
