Stocks that Own the Highest Priced Domain Names

A domain name, or domain for short, is what you type in the web address bar at the top of your web browser. It is usually what comes after the “http://”. For example, WallStreetNewsNetwork.com is a domain name. The interesting thing about these domains, is that they can be very valuable. If you had registered some of the one word domains many years ago, you could sell them for very high prices.

Many large publicly traded corporations understand this and have been willing to pay extremely large amounts for certain domains. The following is a list of the highest priced domain names and the names of the stocks that purchased them, along with the purchase price:

fb.com Facebook (FB) $8.5 million
loans.com Bank of America (BAC) $3 million
social.com Salesforce.com (CRM) $2.6 million
mortgage.com Citigroup (C) $1.8 million
fly.com Travelzoo (TZOO) $1.5 million
vista.com Vista Print (VPRT) $1.25 million
mercury.com Hewlett Packard (HPQ) $1.1 million
sky.com British Sky Broadcasting (BSYBF) $1 million
o.co Overstock.co (OSTK) $350 thousand
