This past week the following 6 Donuts New gTLDs entered general availability with EAP: .academy, .center, .company, .computer, .management and .systems.
Some of the sales are difficult to find as a few domains don’t have nameserves and don’t appear in the zone files. Only sales over $1,000 are listed here.
There were 5 domain names sold on the 1st day of the EAP for about $12,500 each or more depending on the registration/renewal prices (premium level or no premium). These are the domains with who the buyer was:
Forward.company was registered 1 week after fwd.company by a guy named Forward.
There were 6 domain names sold on the 2nd day of the EAP for about $3,000 each or more depending on the registration/renewal prices (premium level or no premium):
peach.company (Zyrra LLC)
Reputation.management was one of the few domains that I was watching. Good one!
There were also 25 domain names bought at about $1200 each in the third day of EAP.
Michael Berkens and Worldwide Media, Inc. got the domain delaware.company. Now that is a great domain!
Merchantaccountsolutions.com bought the domains merchantaccount.company and creditcardprocessing.company but didn’t get creditcard.company that was registered 4 days later and much cheaper. (but it could have premium renewals)
Nokta bought a few domains such as gaming.computer and roofing.company.
Scandinavian Health System AS bought what I believe was one of the best domains: green.company.
The total Donuts EAP purchases from just the first 3 days is at about $110,000 or more depending on the premium domain names.
I also checked all the corresponding domain names in .com (including some plurals) and found 5 that were sitting unregistered today:
A lot of the registered .com domains are owned by domainers and domain companies such as Huge Domains, Nokta, DOTCOMAGENCY.COM and Name Administration Inc.
Some of the purchases above might be higher that reported if the domain name is labeled as premium. Premium registration/renewals start at $50 and go all the up to $1500 per year. Prices are approximate and depend on what each registrar charges on top of the registry fee.
You can register a 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. The EAP wholesale registrar prices are:
