Sex.com is set to be sold for $13 million by Escom LLC, the bankrupt Los Angeles firm that now owns the domain name, according to a news report.

Clover Holdings Ltd., registered in the Caribbean island of Saint Vincent, won an auction for the property, according to bankruptcy documents obtained by the Register, a London tech publication with San Francisco operations. There were 12 bidders.

The deal is subject to bankruptcy court approval. A fight broke out among Escom's creditors earlier this year when one of them pushed the domain to auction.
