OMG, What a Bargain for Yahoo!

Yahoo! purchased the OMG.com domain name for $80,000, Domain Name Wire reported.

Yahoo! runs celebrity gossip site omg!, and OMG is shorthand for “Oh my God.”

Domain Name Wire added that LMK.com (LMK is shorthand for “let me know”) sold for $58,500 this past week.

The $80,000 price tag seems like a bargain when compared with the $4.9 million Zappos.com (now owned by Amazon.com) paid for the Clothes.com domain.
