Qihoo 360 Search's "Million-Dollar" Domain Name [techinasia.com]

Qihoo 360 announced the new domain name for its very controversial search engine that was launched in August. And there it is: www.so.com [so.com]. According to Qihoo CEO Zhou Hongyi, this domain name doesn't come cheap – it cost the company "millions" to get hold of it (though we're not sure if he meant Chinese RMB or American dollars). It is understandable, I guess; so.com is so short, easy to remember and I'm sure that's what Qihoo is going for.
