According to foreign media reports, the English domain name Porn.co recently sold for $120,000, equivalent to approximately 780,000 RMB. This places it as the second-highest .co domain name transaction to date, following only the single-letter domain name O.co, which changed hands for $350,000.
The domain name Porn.co corresponds to a common English word with the meaning of "explicit content," making it highly suitable for building adult-oriented websites. It is worth noting that this domain was purchased by investor James Booth for $22,000 just over a year ago. Now, within a short span of one year, it has been sold for $120,000, marking a substantial profit increase of 4.5 times its original purchase price.
The reason behind the high selling price of this non-mainstream domain name undoubtedly lies in its representation of the lucrative and vast adult entertainment industry.
Typically, domain names related to the adult industry tend to attract significant traffic once they are used for websites. Therefore, owning keyword-rich domain names in this industry is akin to possessing a lucrative tool for generating revenue. Consequently, the prices of domain names in the adult industry have consistently remained high. Today, let's take a look at some of these adult-themed domain names with prices that might leave you astonished!
Sex.com: $13 million
In 2006, the owner of the domain name Sex.com, the Boston-based adult entertainment company Escom, declared bankruptcy. In 2010, the domain was sold on the Sedo platform for $13 million in cash, securing its place as the most expensive adult-themed domain name. It is said that the website enjoys high search traffic mainly because the domain name is easily recognizable, with a clear and distinct feature, making it convenient for searching.
Porn.com: $9.5 million
This domain name was sold in an all-cash transaction in 2007 for $9.5 million, making it the second-highest-priced adult-themed top-level domain name, following Sex.com. Porn.com was registered in 1995 and has a history of 26 years. It is known that this domain name also won the "Most Profitable .com Domain of the Year" award for its website in 2012.
Registered in 1999, Porno.com has the meaning of "explicit content" in Croatian. In 2015, the "Domain King" Rick Schwartz sold this adult domain name for a price of $8,888,888, which briefly propelled it into the top ten list of the most expensive domain names ever sold. Remarkably, he had acquired the domain for just $42,000!
Freeporn.com: $4 million
The domain name Freeporn.com, registered in 1998, may not be concise in terms of length, but its association with the adult industry as "free explicit content" led to an astonishingly high selling price of $4 million.
Sex.xxx: $3 million
The transaction for the domain name Sex.xxx took place in 2014, fetching a price of $3 million, making it the highest-priced .xxx domain name to date.
Sexe.com: 1.64 million RMB
The domain name Sexe.com changed hands for 1.64 million RMB. Registered in June 1995, it has a 24-year history and is synonymous with the English word "sex" in the French language. This makes Sexe.com highly valuable in the field of adult website development.
Sexshop.com: 200,000 euros
In June 2017, the English domain name Sexshop.com sold for 200,000 euros, approximately 1.53 million RMB, and secured the top spot on the DN Journal's sales chart.
For businesses operating in the heart of the adult entertainment industry, using a premium domain name not only fulfills website requirements but also serves as a crucial tool for attracting customers and building brand image. For instance, in China, the well-established adult product e-commerce platform "Jusex Adult" uses the single-letter domain name x.com.cn, and another premium triple-letter domain name xxx.com is also utilized for adult website development.
The market and demand in the adult entertainment industry have always been directly proportional. With the liberation of modern attitudes, the adult entertainment industry experiences significant user demand, especially in the online sphere, where related industries thrive.
Statistics show that at any given second of the day, there are up to 30 million visitors browsing pages related to adult entertainment worldwide. This means that as you read this, approximately 30 million visitors are exploring adult websites, and such massive traffic requires a premium domain name to guide and capture it. Therefore, domain names with clear meanings or benchmark significance hold significant application value!
