Domain would be one of the most expensive .cc domain names ever sold.
Long before .me, .tv, and .ws were commercialized, the big rage of country code domain names was .cc. .CC is the country code domain for the Cocos islands, an Australian territory.
A bidder on Sedo has placed a bid at $10,000 for Live.cc, which may be the largest amount ever paid for a .cc domain, save for a publicity stunt in 2000.
NameBio shows three other sales of .cc domains over $5,000: Poker.cc for $6,802, and Ringtones.cc and Co.cc for $5,00 each.
Back in 2000, before the dotcom bubble burst, there was a wave of interest in the country code after GreatDomains supposedly brokered the sale of Beauty.cc for $1,000,000. People were in disbelief, and had every reason to be. (This was many years before Sedo bought GreatDomains.)
As it turns out, the deal was $200,000 cash plus $800,000 in stock at a generous valuation, reported L.A. Weekly. And even at that, the buyer and seller had a pre-existing business and ownership relationship, which made the deal seem like one big publicity stunt to put some hot air in .cc.
