Man, I need to start buying up domains.
Chris Clark, of North Potomac, says he purchased the name for $20 about 14 years ago. He sold it Thursday at an online auction for more than $2.6 million. To celebrate, he and his family held – what else? – a pizza party.
The 43-year-old native of Queens, N.Y., ran a Web site-consulting service in 1994 when he bought pizza.com hoping to persuade a pizzeria to do business with him. But there weren’t any takers, and Clark maintained the Web site as a pizzeria directory ever since. He decided to sell after hearing about other big sales involving domain names.
The bidding opened March 27 at $100 on the Web site Sedo.com. The winner remains anonymous.
