pizza.com


BBC reports: [edited]

A US man has sold the domain name pizza.com for $2.6m (£1.3m)

Mr Clark registered the domain name in the hope that pizza.com would help to get a contract with a pizza firm for his consulting company. He sold his business in 2000, but kept paying the $20 annual fees for maintaining the domain, which he also used to sell advertisements.

In January, Mr Clark decided to sell it after hearing that another domain - Vodka.com - was sold for $3m in 2006. The online auction was launched on 27 March. The first bid was $100, jumping to $2.6m a week later.
