Donuts entered general availability for the following new gTLDs: .camera .equipment .estate .gallery .graphics .lighting .photography. 7 new gTLD domains sold for $12,539,99 a piece in the past 24 hours and all of them were registered at Go Daddy. 4 of the domains were .photography, 2 were .equipment and 1 was .estate. $10,000 of each domain name sold went to Donuts and the rest to Go Daddy.
Here are the 7 domain names:
Let’s start from the first 2 domain names:
These were registered by a company in Michigan that offers Sample Prep Equipment and Supplies. While metallographicequipment.com is taken by a different company, the domain name sampleprepequipment.com is available to register. metallographic.net and metallographic.org are also available. I think that this was clearly a costly mistake.
Immobilier.estate was bought by a financial company from the Nederlands whose website (financial-media.nl) is not resolving at this time. You’ve guessed it: Immobilierestate.com is available to register. Immobilier is French for immovable .
Someone from Illiois bought both blackandwhite.photography and color.photography.
A company called Photo Safaris (photosafaris.com) bought the domain name nature.photography.
Finally a company called ProductPhotography.com, LLC bought the matching product.photography domain name.
There is still more time today for more of these $12,539,99 domain name purchases.
You can register a (.camera .equipment .estate .gallery .graphics .lighting .photography) domain name using the Donuts EAP that is available in registrars that sell Donuts gTLDs. EAP prices start at about $12,500 and are lowered within the course of the week until they reach the regular registration cost after the 7 day period.
