Million-Dollar Michael Jackson Domain Names for Sale On eBay

Michael Jackson fans searching online for memorabilia in the wake of the pop icon’s death have no doubt turned to eBay, where hundreds of thousands of Jackson-related items are up for auction. Buttons, posters, autographs, LPs, ticket stubs, magazines, tapestries, and more are up for grabs, but the highest-priced King of Pop items on eBay aren’t keepsakes — they’re domain names, sold in bundles of 12, 20, 50, and even 72, or, if you’re like “nini4me2003” and you’re hawking a name as strong as, as single sites.

A seller with the handle “corvette2006,” who has a perfect feedback rating and was called by one customer a “first-rate eBayer,” is trying to unload, along with,,, and a host of morbidly-titled domains. Meanwhile, “bobinrobinbur” is selling seven domains, including MoonwalkingMichael’s .com, .info, .net, .org, and .us. The seller bought the domain, initially, “as a tribute to him because he is now really walking on the moon.” For $21 million, “you can now own a piece of history in his honor.”

The strange thing about these listings is how similar they all sound. All pretty much bear the same unusual starting bid: $21 million. Of course, most sellers admit they’ll entertain all serious offers in their actual listings, some won’t. A few sellers are offering a “Buy Now” option. That price tag? A cool $100 million. All of them, too, are either “One-Of-A-Kind” or “Great investments” with “MASSIVE $$ POTENTIAL!” And most, but not all, offer free shipping.

If you’re in the market for Jackson domains, you can own 12, being sold by one eBayer who claims in his listing that if he doesn’t sell them, he’d like to launch as a social-networking site, with the help of the Jackson family and Sony Records, of course. Again, he’ll part with it for $21 million. Also on the market are,,,, and More disturbing titles like and are also available.
