After doing a little research I discovered that Color.com was acquired by Color Labs in December 2010 for $350,000. After hearing about the new photo sharing social network which raised $41 million dollars (pre-launch) from several venture capital firms (which is more than Google raised), I wondered how much of it they used to acquire the domain name Color.com. Well, it appears, not that much of the $41 million was spent on the domain.
If you look at the site DN Sale Price, you can see for yourself that the domain sold for 350k according to DN Journal (the source it lists). I’ve included a screenshot below.
I cannot totally verify the validity of this, but, as of right now I don’t have any reason to doubt that this site is not reputable. It lists the correct amount for the (original) sale of Sex.com of $14 million.
