NOTE:  Web businesses have other assets and are not domain only sales, so they were not eligible for this list. For example, Insure.com was bought for $16 million as a fully-operating, profitable company. Most buyers and sellers remain anonymous for legal reasons, so names/companies are not included in this article.
