Man regrets not buying more domain names in the 1990s – and sells Pizza.com for $2.6m

At least Chris Clark had the foresight to register a domain. He signed up pizza.com – which he’s just sold for a staggering $2.6m. His initial plan, when he registered the name in the dark days of 1994, was to scoop up a bit of consultancy work for his business.

Fast forward to now and he’s just bagged a vast pile of money for doing nothing other than continuing to pay the domain fees once a year. That’s the sort of easy-money dream the internet was founded to help come true.

Shopping.com, hotels.com, buy.com – missed opportunities the lot of em. Every night we cry ourselves to sleep over the missed opportunities.
