Domain name sales

  • Business.com for $7.5 million in December 1999

  • Altavista.com for $3.3 million in August 1998
  • Wine.com for $2.9 million in September 1999

I own marinpersonaltrainer.com and marintrainer.com – they are available for sale.

A Spain pro-tourism site used choosespain.com
A teacher community site went for teacherstalk.com
