Interested in owning Crackers.com or Religious.net? Yahoo (YHOO +0.3%) is giving you the chance. The Web giant has decided to sell 100+ "premium" domain names through an auction running from Nov. 14 to Nov. 21.

The most costly domain name, Av.com, has a starting price range of $1M-$1.5M. Webserver.com ($250K-$500K) also won't come cheap. But others, such as Cyberjokes.com and Batoota.com ($1K-$5K apiece), are more moderately priced.

Yahoo has been looking to monetize some of its unused and sparsely used assets. Earlier this year, thee company sold a portfolio of Internet radio-related patents to Pandora for $8M.
