2022 Master of Domains Announced by Escrow.com

With the year drawing to a close, Escrow.com released its 2022 Master of Domains list. This list is comprised of the top 10 highest-grossing domain name brokers of the prior year (2021). Typically, the list is revealed at NamesCon Global in January, but that conference was moved to the Spring. The sales volume is based on deals closed via Escrow.com.

For the fourth consecutive year, the top grossing domain broker of the year is Andrew Rosener of Media Options.

The list has become an annual tradition, with some of the best domain name brokers being honored. Typically, the award ceremony is held at NamesCon, but the conference won’t be held until the Spring.

Here are the top ten highest grossing domain name brokers:

  1. Andrew Rosener – Founder & CEO of DomainX, LLC
  2. Todd Reum – CEO of Names.com
  3. Cameron Gordon – Director of DigitalDNA, LLC & Josh Bourne – Managing Partner of DigitalDNA, LLC
  4. Jeffrey Gabriel – Co-Founder of Saw.com Incorporated
  5. Mark Daniel – Managing Director of Domain Holdings Group
  6. Ryan McKegney – CEO of DomainAgents
  7. Hobi Michalec – Co-Founder of Lumis Group, LLC

  1. Congrats to all but especially Stephen Miholovich who as a long-suffering Pittsburgh Steelers fan deserves some joy in his life.

  2. Chris Zuiker should be high up on the list . Not ethical that Media Options would run all transactions through Andrew Roseners name to game this award.

    • What makes you think Chris would be high up on the list? I have no idea what percentage of MO deals he handles vs. Andrew.

      I believe there are others on this list who also have teams working with them.

  3. Chris does a large percentage. Either they should be separately listed or Andrew should give his broker proper credit. Gaming the system so Andrew can appear in number 1 position.

    If based on teams then GoDaddy should be No.1 by a factor of 10x.

    • Chris is a sharp guy and I understand he is good at what he does.

      Good point about GoDaddy. Unsure how the rankings work. I asked a contact at Escrow.com if she can share more information about that, and I hope to have details about the methodology at some point next week.
