    I’ve often wondered what came of high dollar sales of domain names with “questionable quality”. Over the years, there have been some extraordinarily high sales for domains that didn’t seem to justify the price.

    If someone had the time, it would interesting to take the top 50 publicly reported sales from each of the past 10 years, and document exactly how those domains resolve today. I’ve tried this several times and found a fair number to be either an ad landing page or to not resolve at all. Almost all have privacy protected whois. The odd part is that for $50,000 or $60,000, there were much better domains available at the time.

    I observed very high priced domain sales on .info, .co and some other non .com versions (few years back).

    I am curious to know what happened after that? are they real sales or dubious promotional activity to hype the registry?
