POTOMAC, Md. (AP) - A Maryland man has sold the Web domain for millions of dollars.
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 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
The winner remains anonymous.
