Casino.Online sells for $201,250 by Radix (Donuts must be very happy!)

The domain name Casino.Online was sold for $201,250 at Sedo. The seller was non other than the .online domain name registry, Radix.

This sale is now the highest New gTLD reported domain name sale. You can see the top 20 new extension domain name sales at Sold.Domains.

There have been a couple more casino related sales at Sedo in the past month. The domain name sold for $7,500 while sold for $28,000.

These 3 sales seem unrelated as and are registered with GoDaddy and to 2 different owners while Casino.Online is now registered with Safenames, a brand protection agency, and is behind whois privacy. Casino.Online resolves to the default Safenames landing page.

“Casino” and “online” are quite popular terms together. There are 98 “onlinecasino” domain name sales at Namebio. The term has 15 5-figure sales and 2 6-figure sales. Here are the top 5:    165,000 USD    2009-06-23    Sedo    100,000 USD    2011-10-19    Private    85,150 USD    2012-03-14    Sedo    49,999 USD    2007-12-06    Sedo    46,748 USD    2006-07-04    Sedo

The problem is that the term “casinoonline” is not as much popular with only 20 reported sales. Here are the 3 5-figure sales:    17,504 USD    2007-02-01    Sedo    16,500 USD    2016-03-03    Uniregistry    13,500 USD    2014-07-23    Sedo

I think that Donuts should be very happy with this sale as they are the .casino registry and is currently reserved.

  1. The casino always win 😉

  2. Online casinos are a racket, can you imagine computerized slots online, license to make money.

    Cash cow business, run from offshore countries, this one was a matter of when, not how.

  3. How did you come to know @Konstantinos. I think i have tweeted you with this update and said you to update this sales at your end.

    Also, i created thread on veru first this sales:

  4. They should be ecstatic with the sale. Perfect example of a new gtld that you wouldn’t find available for a reasonable reg fee at sunrise, with the keyword having a strong commercial match to the extension. Every new gtld has a limited amount of keywords with good matches like this, then the quality drops off fast.

  5. Even higher sale now from Donuts, for $510,000!
