Mike Mann just purchased the World Wide Web for $18,000!

Well, he actually just bought one domain name: WorldWideWeb.com for $18,000.

The Namejet auction ended a couple of weeks back but Mike announced the purchase today in a tweet:

“Purchased WorldWideWeb.com18,000″

Mike Mann is the owner of DomainMarket.com that offers more than 250,000 premium domain names for sale.

Mike Mann estimates the value of the domain being into 6 figures territory and I can’t blame him:

“True value of WorldWideWeb.com $150-$250K”

OnlineDomain.com provides a summary of Mike Mann’s public purchases and sales every month. Here is the latest report.

  1. Kostas,
    On LinkedIn Mike posted “True value of WorldWideWeb.com $300-$500K” 🙂
    WWW value grows fast! 😉

  2. Good purchase and he surely will sell in mid 6 fig range whenever he does ending up selling.

  3. Solid purchase by Mike. Any guesses on how long it takes him to sell it?

  4. mike mann is a legend. not like the phoney sherpas – media options guy and the plant seller who would tell you “WorldWideWeb.com would has a price tag of 1500” just to try and swindle you. those guys are worse than Adam. at least adam does it in front of your face.

    • Ha ha to an extent this guy has a point, plant selling guy just peddles links for commissions.

      Along with giving advice to invest in .ws, and .co winner winner

      • Ahhhh yes the plant seller…. Who can forget his Chinese domain name spruiking… He and his Team China still cannot bring themselves to face the fact that they were full of shite and were talking out their compost holes..

  5. bought it dirt cheap…definitely worth 200k now only IMO… now i see how domain investors make money 🙂

  6. DomainShame/aka DomainShane/aka Plant Seller guy is so full of himself, guy is such a moron!

    Congrats to Mike Mann!

  7. Mike Mann Massively Overpaid.

    WorldWideWeb.com was available to buy on Name.com for $1150 a couple months ago.

    Anyone in the world could have bought WorldWideWeb.com for $1150, but no one did.

    No one was willing to pay $1150 for WorldWideWeb.com, but now just because ‘mike mann’ has paid $18,000 (Massively Overpaying) all of a sudden everyone thinks it was a bargain. Lol

    The fact WorldWideWeb.com was $1150 weeks before Mike Mann paid $18,000 simply constitutes massively overpaying, even if he does find someone willing to pay even more…
