Sex.Live and Porn.Live Sold for Big Bucks

CYBERSPACE—With live camming being one of the biggest draws for adult entertainment-minded eyes, it's not surprising that websites with .live TLDs are riding the crest of a wave. That was brought home today when the domain seller Rightside sold two domains that are destined to become click heaven: Sex.live and Porn.live, which went for, respectively, $160,000 and $120,000. While the news site OnlineDomain.com states that those two domain names "rank #5 and #8 respectively in the all time New gTLD domain name sales," they're dwarfed by Porn.com, which went for $9.5 million in 2007 and Sex.com which went for $13 million in 2010. But the web is nothing if not ever-growing, and as new gTLDs are added, sites with simple, attractive terms like "sex" and "porn" will always go for bigger bucks than most others. "As we mentioned, the web is a diverse place, and a sizable chunk of it is dedicated to adult pastimes," reported OnlineDomain's Konstantinos Zournas. "While recent headlines have proclaimed that Pokémon Go has become 'bigger than pornography,' the fact remains that adult content represents one of the largest segments of commerce on the internet. And as much as the adult entertainment industry has the internet to thank for its size, the internet itself can thank pornography for a great deal of its early (and current) innovation, too." The purchaser(s) of Sex.live and Porn.live is/are currently unknown, with no identity disclosed on WhoIs.com, but as a Rightside spokesperson noted, "The choice of the .live new domain extension takes advantage of the overall wave of live content being consumed across the internet in recent months. And the purchase and use of these domains is just one more demonstration of what we have been saying all along: Highly relevant search terms on both sides of the dot make for valuable domains. We feel that our portfolio of new gTLDs can be a great fit for many types of businesses in many types of subject matter. We’re very encouraged to see that others agree and are willing to invest in this new era of memorable, descriptive online properties."
