    Here's a slightly different one.

    Some years ago there was an interesting idea called the Million Dollar Homepage. Some of you will likely remember it, many of you won't. I remember it as quite a significant event, perhaps the start of the viral internet.

    It's famous enough to have it's own Wiki entry, so check it out if you want a full background: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Million_Dollar_Homepage

    Anyway at the time I was really keen to get some space on there but never pulled the trigger. At $100 for a tiny square it was definitely a novelty, but one that paid off for some people.

    After not initially purchasing real estate on the MDHP, I'd always been interested in monitoring domains linked from the page to get a piece of it second hand.

    Well it's taken a lot longer than anticipated, but I finally ran the check of available domains, courtesy of Desktop Catcher and some XML/spreadsheet action.

    By my count there are currently 161 domain names available, from about 3000 - 4000 linked. That's at least 16,100 pixels of real estate available at reg fee.

    I grabbed two domains and secured 2,000 pixels of space (initially cost the owners $2000!) so there are certainly some big spaces available for one registration. Let's see who can get the biggest space.

    So for anybody that is interested, here is a list of 161 domains that can get you straight onto the Million Dollar Homepage.

    Great find, thanks!
    Had to grab three domains securing 2,800 pixels.
    Let's see if they get any traffic.

    Just registered ebytes.ca not sure about "space" but not a bad name (of course that what I cam going to say..I own it lol')

    Was just thinking.. noticed milliondollarfacehomepage(dot)com and a few others "million dollar" domains...so what if these site got backlinks for their own "pixel" sites (and these pixels sites are still online?) A little research and a lot of backlinks might be found...

    "On 1 January 2006, the final 1,000 pixels were put up for auction on eBay. The auction closed on 11 January with a winning bid of $38,100 that brought the final tally to $1,037,100 in gross income."

    Meanwhile the owner of MyStoreCrawfordTX.net is struggling on if they should spend a few grand to shorten their URL and move to a .COM. :xf.rolleyes:

    Okay, so I had to bite.

    us411 / biz @ 30 x 30
    Ungy / co.uk @ 40 x 10

    They are some of the cheapest & largest ad units out of the list that you posted. $15 USD for what people paid $1300 for... I'll take that.

    I excel at data harvesting, so I grabbed the sizes of all the ad units based on their coordinates of the imagemap. Here are the results for anyone that is interested in it:

    Thanks again for the share @JRayers

    Yes @JRayers I wanted to buy pixels as well and I couldn't justify the cost for a reasonably sized block. I wonder what common screen res was then? I ended up buying some on one of the zillions of knockoffs and got about zero results for I think a $125 investment

    This was too much fun and I spent waay too much time playing with this in spreadsheets. I actually took the source code and sorted the map by pixel coordinates, because I wanted to find the pixels I was buying! The first one I bought blind, and it took me forever to locate it.

    What amuses me most is the name quality, these were all 2005, was everything good really already gone? Or is the quality of the names indicative of people who had more money that sense since they could afford pixels?

    aallegedly - the reason behind the Alex tew having the million dollar home page was that he was ruling out of socks?

    i had this idea a few years ago after seeing that website finished

    my idea a

    to have a blank website but instead of using visual pixels etc use domain names instead

    so instead of $1 a pixel

    it would be $1 a character of your domain name including ghetto www's and the ltd

    I remember this initiative, was a brilliant idea at the time.

    Thanks for taking the time to post the list of available domains...

    one red paperclip was good too around the same time where a guy traded a paperclip for a house
    the video on YouTube shows you the trades he made

    some domainer could do that now

    eg start from a free domain anxious trade it via a few trades to a LL.com that they swap for a house

    but back then Google was just getting going yahoo allegedly was offered Google but didn't think it was worth it Google bought YouTube etc and bill gates wanted to buy yahoo for massive $ so had yahoo said yes to buying Google and yes go bdkng bought ought by bill gates etc

    bill gates would currently own Google you tube and yahoo

    around the million dollar home page era -

    Alex tew was oh so close to desiring something huge and if he still can

    Most are just knock-offs...in my opinion they will always remain so. Unlikely their backlinks will gain the same authority.

    Any pixel space from MDHP still a good source of backlinks. I bought a couple available names a little over a year ago, and parked them to see the hit average. Both were between 50-70/month.

    For anyone interested in new quality pixel space, I recommend:

    The Million Dollar Map: Pretty cool concept, land ownership on a world map. Point to your domain. Free to claim land, but someone can boot you off by actually buying the space.

    Pic a Second: Another cool concept, where you actually purchase a timeslot within a 24 hour period. No freebies here, but time is sold by the second, $1/second. Each second gives you a dedicated slot to display a full-page logo, along with pointing to your domain.

    @HotKey you mean to tell that people are still using pixel sites as a business model?
