The first Million Dollar Homepage ever


WORLD'S FIRST
MILLION DOLLAR HOMEPAGE

THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST

What was the world's first Million Dollar Homepage?

So, you're getting ready to go to University and you have no socks, what do you do?

Alex Tew knew what to do, he registered the milliondollarhomepage.com, divided the homepage into a 1,000 pixel x 1,000 pixel grid and sold each pixel for $1.00, mind you you had to buy at least at 10 x 10 block, costing $100.00 USD.

The Million Dollar Homepage launched on Friday August 26, 2005 and a mere three days later Alex Tew had his first sale; 400 pixels.

Being the first such pixel site, the Million Dollar Homepage grew very quickly and by the end of 2005 999,000 pixels were sold.

The last 1,000 pixels went up for auction on eBay netting $38,100.00 and bringing the total sales of the Million Dollar Homepage to $1,037,100.00 USD.

The idea spawned thousands of copy-cat sites, but very few had any success and none were even close to the success of the Million Dollar Homepage.

By our calculations, after paying taxes, hosting, marketing and any other expenses, Alex Tew should have had enough left for his pair of socks.
