New gTLD Domain Sales: Chinese.club $13750, Toys.club $12500, Hemp.farm $1200+

This past week the following 3 Donuts New gTLDs entered general availability with EAP: .farm, .codes and .viajes. Also Sedo announced some .club domain name sales.

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 reported.

There was no domain name sold on the 1st and 2nd day of the EAP at the Donuts 3 New gTLD strings.

There were 2 domain names bought at about $1200 each in the third day of EAP.

hemp.farm (Someone from California bought this domain)
emu.farm (California based company primetesting.com bought this one)

Both corresponding .com domains are registered and none from the registrars that got the New gTLDs.

Sedo sold 10 .Club domains from $7,500 each and up to $13,750:

chinese.club $13750
toys.club $12500

All domains were sold by the .Club registry.

Sedo also sold the domain name golf.academy for $2,000. The buyer is New Media Golf Corporation from Florida.

Finally the .Rich registry sold about 20 .rich domains at Sunrise for about $2,500 each such as microsoft.rich and citi.rich.


Some of the purchases above might be higher than 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.

    I don’t get .club at all.

    I can’t see how this gTLD would appeal to anyone but the exclusive 1%’ers.

    But good luck anyway.

    • club is one of my fav, they got a lot of money
      but sadly so many are reservred. the good message: club is a vogue word in many other languages as well

    • The work CLUB is used in many countries all over the world. And non-english speaking ones…

        The rich do like their exclusive clubs, but they tend to fly under the radar — you know, to keep the riff-raff out.

        I doubt very much if they will build viral websites for their “clubs.”

        Most of these registrations will be defensive — if at all.

        For an example, Google “Bohemian Grove” and “Bohemian Club” — two references to an exclusive all-male club, where politicians and artists go to wheel and deal.

        Now check out the matching domain names in .com.

        What do you see?

        No website, that’s for sure.

    • i like the .clubs on sedo
      the list looks like the registry used citrix and printed out just the most common 500

      a half year ago i thought i will snap the golf.club for sure 🙂
      Unfortunately, your offer is too low and cannot be accepted. Please submit an offer above the seller’s minimum bid threshold of 125,000 USD.
