  1. I’d like have a similar domain…

  2. Well I hope it is more than just the domain name they are paying for… It just shows that Dotcom2 is just around the corner.

  3. It can’t even be compared to the speculative dot-com times as it is much more that just a domain name. lastminute.com is a sucessful business with a proven revenue model that delivers profits. Congrats to those involved.

  4. Amazing…how lucky they are! This is unbelievable but I don’t think this is a fake.

    Are there any company offer me 1million for http://insurancesignal.com ?

    Then I can contribute the money to America disaster. I hope.
