newgtldThe New gTLD domain name sales report is back. Courtesy of Sold.Domains that now has more than 500 secondary market sales in its database.

Donuts is releasing during the summer thousands of previously reserves domain names because of ICANN collisions.

This week Donuts is releasing the Generic and Fun collision domains this week: .COOL, .WTF, .ZONE, .GUIDE, .PLACE, .FAIL, .CENTER, .EXPOSED, .GRIPE, .TODAY, .LIFE, .CHURCH.

There were 30 domains sold in the first 3 Donuts EAP days for .COOL, .WTF, .ZONE, .GUIDE, .PLACE, .FAIL, .CENTER, .EXPOSED, .GRIPE, .TODAY, .LIFE, .CHURCH. for a total of about $78,000 or more including the premium domains.

These domains enter general availability tomorrow.


There was 2 domains 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):

Fox.Today was bought by Twentieth Century Fox Film Corporation probably to be used by Fox News. BTW foxtoday.com is probably not owned by the company.

1-800-FLOWERS.COM, INC. bought the domain name Flowers.Today. The domain already redirects to 1800flowers.com. Flowerstoday.com is owned by a California company.


There were 11 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):

FRIENDS LIFE MANAGEMENT SERVICES LIMITED (FRIENDSLIFE.CO.UK) bought the domain name friends.life.

SoulCycle, LLC (soul-cycle.com) bought the domain name soul.life.

Harvest Christian Fellowship (harvest.org) bought the domain name harvest.church.

Lifechurch.tv bought the domains network.church and online.church.


There were also 17 domain names bought at about $1200 each in the third day of EAP.

Chad Wright of WebQuest.com Inc. bought the domains live.life and weather.today.
(I had my eye on live.life but he beat me to it. Check out what outlive.life is.) Weathertoday.com is owned by Michael Berkens and Worldwide Media Inc.

Michael Berkens and Worldwide Media Inc bought the domain names red.zone, the.life and long.life.


Mike also bought other domains in EAP day 4 and 5 such as:
great.life
the.zone
the.guide
good.life
meeting.place
the.center
your.place
friend.zone

Chad also bought other domains:
the.place
game.center
simple.life
whole.life
gold.today
joe.cool


I also checked all the corresponding domain names in .com from the first 3 EAP days and found 0 domains that were sitting unregistered today.

A lot of the registered .com domains are owned by domainers. Weathertoday.com is owned by Michael Berkens and Worldwide Media Inc. Nokta owns longlife.com.

I am sure you notice that not all domain names are reported above. That is because some domains are behind privacy and other reasons. The complete searchable list of EAP domains will be found at Sold.Domains together with the 500+ New gTLD Domain Name Sales that are already posted them.


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.

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:
$10,000 (day1)
$2,500 (day2)
$950 (day3)
$500 (day4)
$100 (days 5-7)

Go Daddy’s early access prices are at about $12,539.99 for day one, $3,164.99 for day two, $1,239.99 for day three, $689.99 for day four and $189.99 for days five to seven. After day seven the regular registration cost applies.
