I am sure you notice that not all domain names are reported above. The complete searchable and sortable list of 750+ New gTLD Domain Name Sales can be found in the new paid Members Area of OnlineDomain.com.
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.
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 or $3600+ per year. Prices are approximate and depend on what each registrar charges on top of the registry fee.
