The new gTLD domain name Swimsuit.Photos closed on Friday for $3,550.
The domain name was auctioned off by Godaddy.com who had multiple applications for the domain on the 4th day of registrations, which is part of Donuts Early Access program (EAP).
The cost for an EAP 4 day registration is around $700 at Godaddy depending on the domain.
So in essence the domain sold for $4,250 which is the $700 the winning bidder paid to get the domain on day 4 plus the amount of the winning bid.
The losers in the auction will get a full refund of their EAP cost but tied up $700 for the privilege of going into the auction
Of course the winning bidder could have saved a lot of money by going up to EAP 3 which meant the domain would have been registered on the 3rd day of availability thereby jumping the other day 4 applicants.
A EAP day 3 application is around $1,240 again depending on the domain name.
