Reportedly Sells for Record $240,000 (Update: Sale Ultimately Fell Through)

James Booth may be focusing his time on amassing an NFT empire, but his company still owns a whole host of the best domain names available.

While he owns some top .com domains, Booth also has a valuable portfolio of .io names, accumulated in the last couple of years. That portfolio is now one domain lighter, as Booth announced that he sold for $240,000.

At $240,000 the name, which appears to have sold via the Squadhelp marketplace, is a record for the .io extension. It beats the previous incumbent,, which attained a $230,000 sales price last November.

The .io extension had a stellar 2021, amassing $4.2 million in publicly-disclosed sales, more than three times the total for 2020. Is .io set for another record-breaking year in 2022?


Update, February 20th, 2022: The domain sale has fallen through.
