Here's the The Lowdown from DN Journal,
updated daily
to fill you in on the latest buzz going around the domain name industry. 

The Lowdown is compiled by DN Journal Editor & Publisher Ron Jackson.

What Does DN Journal, Sex.com and Who Wants to Be a Millionaire All Have in Common?

Over the years  we have been fortunate to have been mentioned in numerous national mainstream publications including the Wall Street Journal, New York Times, Forbes, Newsweek, CNN/Money, ABC News, BBC News and on the front page of USA Today. However, as a former TV guy, I didn't feel like we had really made it until this afternoon when we were part of a trivia question on the national TV show Who Wants to Be a Millionaire.

DomainHoldings Co-Founder John Ferber happened to catch the show (unfortunately, only because he was feeling under the weather and was home recuperating) and he grabbed the screenshot below that he posted on his Facebook page today.

As you can see in the photo above, the question asked by host Meredith Vieira was "Sold in 2010 for $13 million, what URL was considered by the Domain Name Journal to be the most expensive domain name of all time? The answer, as all of our readers should know, was Sex.com at $13 million, a blockbuster transaction we reported in November 2010.

I don't know if the contestant reads DN Journal but she did get the answer right! Now, if we could just get on Jeopardy! :-)
