Donuts beats its previous records for a new top level domain sale.
New top level domain company Donuts has sold the domain name Online.Casino for $510,000, a record for a publicly-disclosed sale of a second level domain under a new TLD.
Donuts completed the all-cash transaction in June.
“It’s another large sale to an end user and we’re excited to follow their site launch next year,” Matt Overman, SVP of Sales for Donuts, told Domain Name Wire. “We expect big things from online.casino similar to home.loans and vacation.rentals.”
Overman was not yet able to disclose the buyer.
The online.casino sale does not appear to be connected to these other sales, at least as far as I can tell from Whois.
