HumboldtHomegrown.com is already taken. Garbervilleganja.com is not. But, how much longer will cannabis themed domain names remain open? Today’s New York Times has a wonderful article on the hot properties of marijuana based domain names.
According to the article,
…buying and selling Internet domain names can be a profitable business. The industry is estimated to be worth billions of dollars. A $13 million sale is pending for sex.com. In June, slots.com sold for $5.5 million and dating.com for $1.75 million. The New Jersey company that paid over $1 million for marijuana .com in 2004 says it has turned down five offers for more than $2 million for the domain in the last 12 months.
