This summer, Donuts released for registration 1.369 million previously reserved domain names in 144 gTLDs. The domains were initially reserved because of collisions.
The company made these names available in batches each week between June and September. The domains were released using the Early Access Period (EAP) where registrants pay an extra fee to purchase, followed by general availability.
The domain names released include some of the best domain names for each extension. These include tens of 1 letter and 1 number domain names that were offered in a premium price. Also these domains include more than 200,000 two character domain names. (LL ,LN, NL, NN)
I noticed that some of the prices for niche New TLDs were more expensive this time around and also noticed that 1 letter and 1 number and also more expensive than the prices Donuts had in the first half of 2014. A lot of the domains released were priced as premium. But that is understandable as some of the best names of each TLD were in the collision list. (together with a lot of junk domains)
I bought a few domains myself (about 130). Here is a list of some of the domains I bought. These are not necessarily my best domain names:
Did you buy any domain names from collisions and what?
I hope you were lucky enough to also have acquired the matching .com’s.
I wanted to register one LL.whatever, but, noticed the matching .com was already registered by someone else. So, I gave it up. Maybe I was wrong in giving it up.
I am curious what budget you spent for those 130 collision released gees.
Quite a lot! I will post about this.
Damn you got some really good ones in there! Happy.Place as silly as it may sound could fetch some money to the right blogger or such….I certainly wouldn’t kick Internet.Expert out of bed either good hunting!
I researched “happy place”. It is quite popular.
Why onlinedomain.com and not online.domain 🙂
There is no .domain. There is .domains.
I only grabbed a few due to the competition:
You know what I think about the first one!
best of luck
I grabbed 4L.domains. Guess where that’s forwarding to…

I got a 3d domain too!
wow .. really nice names here .. most I like the tv.digital .. congrats coco
I really wish and see that I would like to have the experience of K to buy names.
me and my brother (the royal brothers) spend about 5k.
most names are for standard renewal or low premiums.
we only bought names that we personal like, with a good search volume and never before of eap5.
here are the names which I like the most:
cheap.domains (this one is expensive. dont know really what to do with it right now)
mini.cab (already bought maxi.cab a year ago)
we bought as well some german domains like irland.reisen & pizza.taxi and a few more.
and some nerd collector stuff:
we are done, happy and out of race right now.
maybe back again for dot music, art, web, shop or hotels.
hmm…. big list royals almost all nice ones but as per my knowledge favorites are
and fully agree with ur favs .. think as well that those are the best from my list.
I would like to ask u which names u would drop from my list ?
Hi Royal, thanks!
what you mean out of the race ? you have fantastic names. I would also have trouble deciding which one to drop from your list. I like auction.house, network.tools, dns.tools, storage.systems ..
you have London.today and mini.cab, maybe we could some development together with lhr.today and uk.life … here’s my technical question to you and all, please,
is it possible to delegate the main domain to parking (say, DNS ) and delegate the subdomain to hosting, resulting in having the main domain parked but the sub-domain up and running ? the subdomain would have to follow the same tos the main domain is under naturally, for example
main domain: and.flights
and.flights in DNS’ parking server;
subdomain: Hotel.and.Flights delegated to hosting.
im thinking, the subdomain could drive nice traffic to the main domain.
given many of us might have too many ngtlds, it would make sense to group in categories and perhaps mirror one category from multiple’s portfolio holders and have a dns approved subdomain made portal …?!
does that make any sense ?
is that even doable ? A record zoning works ?
if not to have traffic, at least the process of deciding which mistakes to drop, would be less painful and better decided if we hold categories together ?
equally to a portal under a category CNAMed across multiple holders, would allow fast contributed dev.
I always look from end user and see how best we can sell the domains on demand in the domain market place and as per my strategy
100% drop : without second thought
50% drop : depends on your decision
No idea for the followings
you are most welcome royals
how about following domains which I registered today
bridal.house is brilliant. like it !! was it a drop ? for sure there is a buyer somewhere, just needs a bit time to sell. I would buy this one instant too.
not sure about the other two names. I would not buy because I dont know the market for this names. dont know how to develop (no content idea).
http://corporate.design dont has any interest (traffic)
btw .. I remember that u got a swiss.tld
stay cool with that one. I already sold 2 swiss.tld
cheap.domains (this one is expensive. dont know really what to do with it right now)
I would drop:
and maybe a few others. There are various factors including the renewal price.
Thanks all ! very appreciate ur help here.
looks like I have to drop the cupcake asap! no cupcake cook in here ? 🙂
I give a “yes” for ur question. but I think it generates no income when u park the “and.flights”. I think new gTLD needs content to get ranked and traffic.
“out of race” : just with buying domains. I am fully happy with my current portfolio.
btw .. I like ur “hotel.and.flights” idea. that page sounds nice.
just redirect the “and.flights” to “hotel.and.flights”. that would make more sense I think.
i am; weather.and.news, goods.and.services, hotel.and.flights …. 🙂
Thank you royals and dont know about drop please visit followings may be you change your mind because I was on hold registering bridal.house after registering corporate.house & meeting.house at last registered it
Yeah thats right I got swiss.guide and congrats on sale
I see .. sounds really good.
I checked as well by google planner and saw the nice cpc and the search volume. congrats.
I got following newGTLDs. Can I have valuable comments / suggestions if any, from all ? Thank you.
