    Some expensive Domains ever
    CarInsurance.com — $49.7 million
    Insurance.com — $35.6 million
    VacationRentals.com — $35 million
    PrivateJet.com — $30.18 million
    Voice.com — $30 million
    Internet.com — $18 million
    360.com — $17 million
    Insure.com — $16 million
    Fund.com — £9.99 million
    Sex.com — $14 million*
    Hotels.com — $11 million
    Porn.com — $9.5 million
    Shoes.com — $9 million
    Porno.com — $8.8 million
    Fb.com — $8.5 million
    We.com — $8 million
    Business.com — $7.5 million
    Diamond.com — $7.5 million
    Beer.com — $7 million
    Z.com — $6.8 million
    iCloud.com — $6 million
    Israel.com — $5.8 million
    Casino.com — $5.5 million
    Slots.com — $5.5 million

    It depends you should buy it or not. for example, if you see oyo.com someone registered and selling for some $million but oyo founder had another option oyorooms.com it wasn't highly necessary for him that's why he didn't purchase.
    if it would be highly necessary like fb.com than should buy.

    so buying a domain is not important. marketing the site is important.

    Absolutely! It depends on how popular the word(s) in the domain name is, but yes. Some domains were sold for well over $1M in past, even more than $10M - yes, just domain names, not websites or whole businesses. We're talking about .com domains mainly, but if the domain is 1-word name that is ridiculously popular, like sex, money, weather, business, etc. then some of the tlds are surely worth $1M too.

    The price for this one is taken out of thin air. Unless the domain is ranked high in search engines and receives a huge amount of traffic, then maybe.

    One guy bought CBD.com because his ecommerce store is named ChristianBookDistributor.com or something similar. Imagine his reaction when the term CBD became popular. Probably worth a few million dollars

    I'm not a domain expert, even though I sold quite a few one-word.CO domains in the past for about $1500 each on average. But, I wouldn't pay $100K for imarkzuckerberg.com even if I was a millionaire.

    The asking price doesn't mean much. So to answer your question, yes people will buy 1M$ domains.

    The real question is: Is it worth it? A lot of domains are making a good amount of money just by placing ads on the domains, without any content, because people are typing the url directly in the browser. You can try asking for those numbers to figure out if it's worth it.
