Itís not that uncommon to hear of people cleverly snapping up a relevant online domain name and many years later selling it for a lot of money. That was the case with the owner of the pizza.com domain who just sold it for a staggering $2.6 million.

According to Baltimore Sun, Chris Clark bought the name back in 1994 but never really made much out of it, paying just $20 for keeping it. However, after hearing about the sale of Vodka.com for $3 million he decided to try his luck and auctioned the name. Initially he received a $100 bid, but it quickly shot up above $2 million, and ended at $2.6 million to an anonymous buyer after only a week.
