Sales

The top sale is the actual keyword itself. Shop.com sold for $3.5 million in November of 2003. Complex.com wrote: Looking to create an online destination where people could easily browse through a number of catalogs, Lee Lorenzen founded a site called Catalog City. From there the vision grew to include products from web-only shops, popular department stores, and speciality stores. Backed by a great purchasing technology called OneCart, all CatalogCity was missing was a new name: It came in the form of Shop.com which was picked up for a little over $3 million.

The number two sale is Shop.cn, the domain sold for $160,320 in February of 2014. The sale was part of the eName/.CN Registry Auction. Currently the site has a 501 not implemented message showing.

ProShop.com was the number three sale at an even $100,000. The domain sold back in 2005 and was a private sale. The domain registered in 1999 is owned by industry powerhouse Anything.com. The domain is currently parked.

Shoppen is Dutch (and maybe German) for Shopping.

@equity78 you still have the word Cloud mentioned in your post.

Thanks Doron, Firefox crashed when I was writing not sure what happened there.
