Taking a look at some of the biggest reported new gtld sales on Namebio and it seems like a lot of people spent a lot of money on domains that are doing nothing.
Wine.Club purchased for $140,000 and the name just shows a 101Domain.com landing page.
Web.Hosting was purchased for $52,500 at NamesCon in January of 2016 and it’s being used as a redirect to iBeeHosting.com. IBEE Hosting is part of XBT Holding and other flagship products of XBT like Servers.com, Webzilla etc.
Luxury.Estate purchased in 2014 for $50,000 was one of the first big sales. The domain was sold by Domain Holdings. The domain is a Go Daddy landing page.
Pro.Flowers was purchased for $50,000 in June of 2015, the domain does not even resolve. Uniregistry was the seller and FTD the buyer.
