This past week the following 5 Donuts New gTLDs entered general availability with EAP: .agency, .bargains, .boutique, .cheap and .zone.
The total Donuts EAP purchases from the first 3 EAP days is at about $35,000 or more depending on the premium domain names.
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 day of the EAP for about $12,500 or more depending on the registration/renewal price (premium level or no premium).
There were 3 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):
The domain realestate.agency was sold for $4,800 despite being bought on the 3rd day of EAP. This is because is carries a registration/renewal fee of $3,600. Click here to read the full story.
Arcade Pte Ltd bought the domain name arcade.agency.
Boxstudios.com that bought the domain kids.agency for $3,000+ also bought the domain kidscreative.agency.
Innovate Solutions from Alaska bought the domain socialmedia.agency. I got the social.agency a lot cheaper than $1,200.
Someone from Nevada bought the domains vegas.bargains and vegas.cheap and a different person from Nevada also bought travel.bargains.
Gogetssl.com from Latvia bought the domain name ssl.cheap.
I also checked all the corresponding domain names in .com and found no domain that was sitting unregistered today. I guess that buyers are becoming more picky and cautious.
A lot of the registered .com domains are owned by domainers.
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.
