Database specialist Oracle may be toying with the idea of selling sun.com — one of the most lucrative domain names on the entire Internet.
The firm acquired the website when it took over Sun Microsystems, but it is now winding up its sun.com offering and the actual Internet real estate could be worth a sum.
One analyst has estimated that the Web address could fetch up to $2 million.
Speaking to Tech World, Jeff Kupietzky, chief executive officer of Oversee.net, said: “At just three letters it is short and memorable. It is a positive word that has a high search volume.”
However, other specialists are less certain that sun.com is a multi-million dollar Web address.
Recently, three letter domain name sex.com sold for a record $13.2 million, making it the most expensive Web address on the planet.
The auction took place last November and attracted a variety of high-profile Web real estate buyers.
