Russia.com sold recently for a jaw-dropping $1.5 million USD. Considering the country’s large economy and emerging Internet population, the sale price is quite reasonable.
Currently, the domain is being used by the Russia Channel as a hotel and travel guide for tourists. This is a good use for the name, but I could also see it being utilized by a news website or even the government. Geographic domains are some of the best investments out there.
