Just saw this on the bbc website, .com
wonder how many pizzas he can buy with that amount of money.
I also regret not buying more domains in the mid 90's. I even regret not buying more domains in the beginning of this century. I wonder if I in ten years will regret not buying more domains at this very moment.
Em an SEO Freelancer from India!
just last week a guy bought five 3-letter .com domain names for 3500 total! There are still deals to be had. Btw - I think pizza.com was a steal at that price. Think of how much you'd be able to sell it for to some big national pizza chain.
Yeah, I thought that $2.5mil was too low. I think it could go for $30-50mil easily (yeah, I can easily be mistaken by several orders of magnitude, too).
Then again, I doubt a brand wants to buy this domain (except to redirect it to their brand site and get SE and type in benefits). A brand wants to build a brand, not to be a general pizza. Then again, if everyone starts associating "pizza" with "brand", then it'd be nice, too, eh?

Thanks for the info, then I guess the price was right. Maybe the larger sums I had in mind related to total yearly income of domainers or something.
In the end, any price that makes both seller and buyer happy is a good price, but I'm certainly not the only one that thinks it was a low price: http://seoblackhat.com/2008/04/05/pizzacom-stolen-from-some-schlep-for-just-26-million/
It's a sad, sad day when the domain shemale.com goes for more than a few bucks.
Also interesting - look at #66 (the second #66) and note the date. Then look at #8. lol Not a bad domain flip, huh?
