Internet Real Estate Harder to Find

On-line real estate is getting harder to find.

According to Dotster Inc., a company that sells Internet domain names, and website developers are increasingly worried about a shortage of domain names.

Although the possibilities seem endless, more than 70 million domain names have been snapped up, and most — if not all — one-word global domain names have already been purchased, Dotster said.

Sex.com was sold for a reported $12-million (U.S.) in cash and stock in January, one of the most expensive domain name sales in history. Other top sellers include Business.com, Casino.com, Wine.com and Loans.com.
