Why Did Facebook Spend $19 Billion on WhatsApp but Not $185K on .Facebook?

In the last few weeks, commentators have speculated as to how Facebook arrived at the whopping $19 billion valuation of start-up WhatsApp, with just $20 million in revenue and 50 employees but 450 million users. While there have been some good comparisons to other deals acquiring users and placing value on the future of those users, it still left me wondering why Facebook would not have applied for its own top-level domain when the price tag was a mere $185,000.
