Sex.com domain name sold for $13 million
BANGALORE (Reuters) - Sex.com, widely considered to be among the most valuable web addresses in the world, was sold for $13 million by its bankrupt owner, Escom LLC.
In court papers filed on Monday, the company said Clover Holdings Ltd was the successful bidder for the domain name. The deal is yet to be approved by the bankruptcy court.
