The million dollar home page


The Million Dollar home page is, well, exactly what it says.  This guy, Alex Tew, sold his home page at $1 per pixel and managed to make a million dollars.  With all of the pixels sold out, the home page is a rainbow of ads, ranging from you tube to yellow pages and a lot of sites I have never hear of.  It is quite entertaining to spot all of the mini ad icons hidden between the mesh of colour.

This was a brilliant idea. I wonder if he is going to make a million dollar about page too?

  1. Just wonder for how many years he can pay hosting that page with $1m, probably used up all the money already :-)

  2. It's basically 400KB per hit to the front page, I'm sure a million can cover that with interest alone.
