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).

Arcade Pte Ltd bought the domain name that bought the domain for $3,000+ also bought the domain

Innovate Solutions from Alaska bought the domain I got the a lot cheaper than $1,200.

Someone from Nevada bought the domains and and a different person from Nevada also bought from Latvia bought the domain name

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.

  1. Keywords like seo, vegas, travel come with huge premium renewals, which only deep pockets with holding power, or end users can really justify spending at those given EAP prices.

    Funny Berkens dropped Bahamas.TV, people spend hundreds of millions of dollars vacations there each year, and a $500 premium renewal could not be justified in .tv, which when up against the new class of gtld’s is a top 10 extension. How are these same gtld’s going to fare with their $250-$4000 renewals?

  2. Zournas,

    I believe the word you are looking for is REGISTERED, not sold. Those domains registered for those amounts plus the renewal premiums. So you may want to revise your headline. Sold applies only to aftermarket. Thanks.

  3. How much did go for?
