Making Dough: pizza.com Sells for $2.6 Million
A 43-year-old man from Maryland has sold the domain name pizza.com for almost 10,000 times the price he paid for it. Chris Clark registered the name pizza.com in 1994 for just $20, and continued to pay the annual registration fee until January of this year, when he heard the domain name vodka.com had gone for a massive $3 million, and decided he wanted a slice of the pie.
"It's crazy. It's just crazy," was all Clark, who used to run a consultancy, could say after the online auction finished.
