The Most Expensive Domain

So the record was broken in early 2012 with PrivateJet.com being sold for $30,00,000 when everyone was pleading poverty and the dotcom boom was supposed to be dead and buried. It's the same old story, something is only worth what someone is willing to pay for it. We look forward to the new TLD's being offered shortly and the market continuing to thrive.
