Featured

premium-domain-namesI am introducing a new service that I am working on for a couple of months now. .Press landrush is ending on Monday the 15th of September at 12pm EST and general availability starts on the 17th and I thought that this was a good time to offer for sale this list of all .Media domains sorted by renewal price. .Media has 7,123 registered domain names today and all are included in the list. Although media and press do not exactly match there are going to be a lot of domain names that will be valuable in both extensions.

The list includes:

  • All 7,123 .media domains sorted by their renewal price
  • 604 premium .media domains sorted by price

  • 4 domains with $1,000+ premium prices
