    Default wallstreet dot com expects $10m

    Another..if only I thought of that..

    At an auction of internet domain names on Friday, "Wallstreet.com" is expected to fetch at least $10m.

    "Porn.com" sold for $9.5m (4.8m) earlier this year.
    The current owners of the domain bought it from an online gambling company which found itself unable to trade in its main, US, market after the passage of the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act in autumn 2006.

    The cost of the entire business last winter was $1(50p).
    At the other end of the scale, lackofimagination.net was still available on Friday for $5.99 (2.95).

    I remember going to wallstreet . com for stock info.. and every single time would be taken aback by the casino portal. Interesting that they sold for so much.

    At the other end of the scale, lackofimagination.net was still available on Friday for $5.99 (2.95).

    I can understand why porn.com sold for so much but think that $10M must be a little optimistic for Wallstreet.com isn't it?

    If you've been following the domain business for the past year you'll realize the above sales are not abnormal. The people making the real money online are not affiliates, they are domain name brokerage firms.
