What's the most expensive domain you ever bought?

Domain market is a competitive one. The prices for a single domain can vary from couple of bucks to seven or eight figures.

Just curious what was the most expensive domain you ever bought, what was it for and did it payed-off?

Thanks for sharing, although I thought it was way, way more πŸ˜‰
I guess it's not about what you pay for it, but what you make out of it πŸ’―βœ¨

I currently only own one domain for my personal portfolio, which is around 20 buck a year or so πŸ˜‰

Domain prices are scams. Resale of domain names doubly so.
I think the most I've personally paid for one is about Β£22/year for a .scot name,

I think that anything AI related holds a great future potential and I'm sure you are using smart and well thought-out algorithm to generate the results πŸ˜‰
Plus I like the unique design you have developed for the site πŸ‘

I own domcloud.io and domcloud.id which cost about 50$ and 15$ respectively. Most expensive I ever bought for a project.

25€. I search new domains with the 'beast mode' on namecheap, set up to display domains cheaper than 30€.
I don't like the business around domain names
