Man Sells Pizza.com Domain For $2.6m

By now we all know that meaningful and memorable domain names are worth sizable amounts of money. This has certainly played into the hands of Chris Clark (43) of North Potomac, Maryland who has just sold the pizza.com domain name for a cool $2.6 million. He first bought the domain way back in 1994, thinking it would help him nab a contract for his consulting company with a pizza firm. He then had the foresight to continue paying $20 a year for the name since then, which I would bet he was very glad he did. One of the triggers for the decision to sell was the Vodka.com domain, which garnered a price of $3m back in 2006. Mr Clark has said that the sale will make a considerable difference to his life (a slight understatement maybe?).
