US man gets $2.6m for domain name

US man gets $2.6m for domain name

Mr Clark registered the domain name in 1994, when the world wide web was just starting.

He had hoped that would help to get a contract with a pizza firm for his consulting company.

He sold his business in 2000, but kept paying the $20 annual fees for maintaining the domain, which he also used to sell advertisements.
