The reasons for buying an expensive domain can vary, from buying out the competition and protecting your own brand, to investing in a completely new business or taking over a well-established one. The most expensive domain names are often not publicly recorded. Negotiations on higher value domain names are usually carried out privately, through big domain registrars like GoDaddy and auction sites or marketplaces such as Sedo or Flippa.
