    Got an extra 1.2million laying around?

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...093965525&rd=1

    Just $1,200,000.00, a bargain...
    Was browing around to see if there were any worthwhile quick buys. Came upon this, thought it was funny.

    Mind you, I've never bought a domain on eBay, but in the off chance theres a cool domain there I"d buy it.

    those domains themselves aren't inherently valuable in my mind unless they still got tons of traffic... and by tons... i mean it better be in the top 100 on alexa to warrent such a price and make people even think about it.

    there are much better ways to spend 1.2 mil if you're buying domains.

    Its no where near worth that much that domain would be worth $10'000 the most.... Only a crazy person would pay that amount.

    Sorri whats the history behind this domain such that it generate 8 figures? Looks quite a common name. Any particular reason why?I feel business.com is obvious but this not very obvious

    ,Yea the problem is someone will use your ebay account your , feedback rating to sell something and then he will get the money to his account not yours , and then you will be in troubles with eBay and the buyer .. While you did nothing

    Well ... to be fair, netpower.com IS a good name; but if I had an extra 1.2M to spend on domain names, I would have A LOT of much better options.

    on a high ticket item if the seller *is* willing to take paypal it would scare me ... secure bank-transfer via solictors and under escrow *only* would be my suggestion ...

    8 figure revenue since 1996?
    Please!!! Are they counting the digits to the right of the decimal?
    $1,500.1200

    Any site that has $1.95 monthly hosting I don't hink has ever had 10's of millions of dollars of revenue. I don't care if they have been open since 1776.

    They are called Google, Amazon, Ebay,,,, I don't think netpower is anywhere near that elite crowd,

    Plus I see this domain being created in 1998, So I don't know where 1996 came from.
    Creation date: 23 Sep 1998
