The sale of vegas.club for $100,000, announced at the NamesCon conference this week in Las Vegas, has been quickly topped.
Wine.club sold during the RightOfTheDot NamesCon Auction for $140,000, meaning it now is the highest reported sale of a domain for any of the new gTLDs. According to media reports, the sale is a cash sale whereas the previous two six-figure .club sales (including for coffee.club) were done as deals.
During the auction almost one million dollars of domains was sold, with the biggest sale being for homecare.com and homecare.net, selling for a combined $350,000.
There were a number of other .club sales, the best of the remainder being weed.club which sold for $15,000 (and had a reserve range of $5,001 to $10,000), fight.club ($13,500), tequila.club ($8,000) and birthday.club ($5,000).
While the auction was dominated by .com sales, there were a number of sales for domains from new gTLDs such as email.host and mail.host ($6,500), food.wiki ($3,100), realestate.wiki ($3,000) and wallstreet.press ($2,900).
