According to inside information and an adult industry website, the high-traffic, NSFW domain name freeporn.com has been sold. The members of the site speculate on the sale because of the changing of whois information. It is somewhat safe to assume though that the domain has changed hands since it is now in an escrow account. As one member points out “escrow = sale”. Insiders in the adult space have confirmed with Domain Name News that the domain name was being shopped to prospective buyers with a $3 million price tag. Our sources have also identified the buyer as Webcams.com. I’m sure more details on this sale will be released soon.
The domain Porn.com was also sold earlier this year for a reported $9 million and just a few months ago Naked.com and BigTits.com changed hands for an undisclosed sum.
