The owner of the domain name hell.com thought that it would be a fast way of getting a million when the domain name was put on auction with a list price of $1 million. Unfortunately, no one wanted a piece of hell.The Hell.com domain name was one of the hundreds of domain names that were put on auction in Hollywood, Florida by Moniker.com � a domain asset management provider.
The owner of the domain name put the $1 million minimum price mainly spurred and encouraged by the impressive sale of domain name sex.com earlier this year. That particular domain name was sold for a whopping $12 million. The owner probably thought that hell.com would get the same amount of interest but apparently it was not the case as there were no takers and the bid prices were not even reaching the reserve price.
According to Seevast Corp., owner of moniker.com, the hell.com domain will now be included in a silent auction.
The company is actually selling hell.com on behalf of the owners, a group called BAT Flli LLC. The founder of the group, Kenneth Aronson, registered the domain name in 1995. This is not the first time that Aronson has tried to sell the domain name. In April 2000, he put the address for auction with a starting bid of $8 million.
At present, hell.com is being used by members of The Final.org, which is a loose association of digital artists and creative �visionaries�. The domain name is basically used as a private address for their creative works. It is not accessible with a web browser.
