Buying domain names on the web can rake in big bucks, if you have a winner for a name. Sought-after names can fetch millions of dollars at auctions.

According to Sedo, the world’s largest domain marketplace and monetisation provider, the highest-valued domain sales for 2014 was mm.com, which sold for a whopping $1.2 million. In the second place was true.com which raked in $350,000. Malls.com, flashcards.com, gab.com and kaffee.de, were some of the other top selling names. For those health freaks out there, vitaminc.com, fetched a cool $104,000.
