Price Drop on 1 Million+ Donuts Premium Domain Names

This afternoon, Donuts announced that there would be a price drop on 1 million domain names it considers premium. The reduced price domain names are available at, a consumer-friendly domain registrar owned and operated by Donuts. The news was announced via Twitter:

When you visit the link shared in the tweet, you can download .CSV files with the domain names and prices for standard renewals as well as the reduced premium renewals. In total, there are more than 1.1 million domain names included. There is also a .PDF guide available to download which highlights some of the featured domain names.

Here’s more information about the sale, the process, and important dates for those who are interesting in buying the reduced price domain names:

“Over 1.1M unsold Premium Domains are dropping in price as of early November. Investors and entrepreneurs can be the first to grab these newly reduced domains by preordering between now and Nov. 1, 2019 at 17:00 UTC.

Preorder your discounted Premium by searching for keywords or exploring the lists below.

Or, buy it now

If you think a domain you preorder will have a lot of competition, you can purchase the domain now at its current price. If you choose to do so you’ll have instant access to the domain and it will renew at the reduced price as of November 5, 2019, which can be found as the preorder price or as listed in the .CSV files.”

    • They’ll just chase the market down. “Ok you didn’t make any money with those $2,000 premiums but how about some names at $500?”. Some people will take a second bite of the Donut and they know it.

  1. I invest in ngtlds since 2014. Donuts has been the most domainer friendly registry. But, for the last 1-2 years they’ve been reserving the best drops and only leaving the ones that are overpriced or are not that good so that alone tells you that the are no good opportunities for investors in those million+ domains. There are a few good combos in that list but most remain overpriced for investors(i.e. with their quality, price and projected str, an investor would be lucky to make money)

    It’s mainly targeted to end-users since rightside(the vast majority of those domains belong to rightside tlds), had reserved many crappy names that end-users might have registered thus donuts was losing out of potential renewal revenue.

  2. To make the article more authentic it might have been good to post an example of what you are actually promoting, or describing.

    The new extension operators are much like the boy who cried wolf, nobody cares anymore. The whole platform is flawed, not for investors, they will fleece you, end users are not interested in inflated premium renewals, with unlimited price increases written into the frame work of the contracts.

    Epic fail
