sex.com Auction Delayed

By on March 22, 2010 in Computer Supplies

Possibly the most notorious domain name, sex.com, is up for sale, but as of 18 March 2010 the auction of the domain was delayed after some of its creditors interrupted proceedings with a bankruptcy claim. The auction was to happen simultaneously with its foreclosure sale and it is thought that Escom – the domain’s indebted current owners who filed the claim – were worried that they would not get the best price in this context.

The domain name has a chequered history which has spawned two books. sex.com was sold to Escom for a reported $14 million in 2007.
