Answers Corporation Buys Dictionary.com For the Domain Name

| About: Answers Corporation (ANSW)

Step aside, sex.com. The biggest domain name sale ever may have happened yesterday, and it wasn't for porn.

Lexico Publishing Group, the company behind Dictionary.com, Thesaurus.com and Reference.com just fetched $100 million, sold to publicly-traded Answers.com (NASDAQ:ANSW).

This was about domain names, pure and simple. And at least until business.com goes for a few hundred million, this is a record-setter, me-thinks.
