The Most Expensive Domain Name In History

Has everybody heard of this young entrepreneur, Andres Kello?

He's the guy trying to break the World Record for the most expensive Domain name ever.

Price Tag? How about 12 million plus one dollar. From the proceeds of the sale, at least $4,000,001.00 is pledged to charity. Another $4 million is promised to be given away to his supporters.

The official record is held by Business.com at $7.5 million.
The unofficial record stands at $12 million and reportedly is credited to Sex.com. Imagine that!

Mr. Kello believes that the sell of his Domain name is a small price to pay compared with the fees that some big businesses pay for 30 and 60 second ads on Super Bowl Sunday. He thinks once the sale is made, the media will be flooded with reports. Everyone will log in to see what this site has to offer and who finally decided to take a chance with that kind of advertising dollar.
He may have a vailid point. I'm curious right now, and maybe just a little jealous that I didn't think of such a great idea. I love the charity factor that he has woven into this project, even though with that kind of money, I think he should commit at least half of the sale proceeds. Either way, it's a big gift and I'm sure many people will benefit. Mr. Kello also claims that he will not just quit and walk away with his small fortune, but will continue to come up with bigger and better ideas to top this project.

I hope this thing really does happen. Maybe this idea will fuel the rockets in all our brains to propel more thoughts to new highs and make this world a better, safer, and more peaceful environment for our generation and those that will exist many years from now!
