London , June 26 (ANI): Selling unique domain names can certainly make you a millionaire and the latest instance is of a businessman who sold the domain name for a whopping 1 million pounds at an auction.

Nine years ago, Richard Haigh, 32, from Nottingham , bought this domain name for a meagre 20 pounds.

This Internet address is one of only two domain names in the world with a single symbol, the other being the euro, which is expected to be grabbed by a bank at the Amsterdam sale.

“I bought it before the internet really took off and while prices for domain names were low. Whatever happens at the auction, its sale will change my life for ever, the Mirror quoted Richard, as saying.
