15 of the Most Expensive Domains

Choosing a domain name is really important for a new born or established business. You do not want to make any mistake. Sometimes it is easier to setup a site than choosing a domain name.

It is a tricky process to find a domain name which has not been claimed till now. There is no surprise that single word domain names are not available on common rates. For example eAskme.com was sold at the price of $1000 in 2014.
