The stories behind two of the largest nTLD sales to date

For decades, the aftermarket sale of Premium Domains has followed a specific patten: They’ve always been short, keyword-rich sales of predominantly .com domain names. But with the introduction of hundreds of new domain extensions, a new frontier of Premiums was born. Now, after several years of smart investors jumping onto the new TLD trend early, we’re beginning to see major payoff for those who were brave enough to invest in opportunity when they saw it.

While there have been a number of notable sales of aftermarket and Premium new TLDs, there are two that stand out—each of which brought in a whopping 6-figures in profit.

Let’s get rid of all the passwords

By Gary Stevens

Can you imagine an online world without passwords? Probably not, but the fact is that passwords have always come with risk. No one understands that better than Microsoft founder Bill Gates. The 21st century was barely underway when Gates predicted that technology would one day replace passwords with options that are more secure.

Six years ago these domain tools were cutting edge—and for the most part, they have stood the test of time.

But we knew we could do better.
