sex.xyz sells at $11,000 loss as premium renewal kicks in
The domain sex.com was for many years the most-expensive ever sold, but the outlook might not be so bright for sex.xyz, which may be a bit of a poisoned chalice.
sex.xyz sold at Sedo for $2,150, according to a record that popped up in my feed today. Namebio lists the same price, with a sale date of December 15.
The domain appears to have been sold just one week before it came up for renewal, which would have cost the original registrant an eye-watering $13,000.
According to XYZ, the registry, it had sold in December 2021 for $13,000, and is one of the names listed as having an annual premium renewal the same as the original sale price.
sex.com sold for $13 million in 2006 and held the record for the highest publicized domain sale every, until the crypto guys started throwing their money around a few years back.
The current record is $30 million for voice.com, sold in 2019. The name nfts.com sold for $15 million last year.
Update: this post was updated to correct that it was sex.com that sold for $13 million, not xyz.com.
