A report by EIN news claims that a domain name’s price has exceeded the cost of And the difference is not of a few million dollars but is twice of that. Yes, the domain name has been priced at a whopping $60 million! 

What is the reason behind such an exorbitant amount for this domain name? The first reason being the cost is the second level domain here, i.e., Riyadh. Riyadh is the Capital city of Saudi Arabia. The country is going through an intense economic transformation. Seeing the exhaustion of its dear petrol reserves in the near future, the state pivoted to a tourism based economy. The special attention on Tourism, makes flights an essential part of the economic progress of the Country. Considering the hoard of oil money that the middle eastern state is sitting upon, such a high price can be expected. 

The second reason being the extension.  .flights domain names are one of the most expensive domain names. The domain name provides accurate and on the point branding.

    Domain with business extension can be a great investment if you get to register any good one. As these resemble the purpose of the brand, these are of very high value for SEO purposes as well as to remind the name easily. Also, one should check before registering such domains that it hasn’t been trademarked by any other company.
