A .io Domain Sells for $90,000 BIN at Afternic

Following Doron Vermaat’s sale of Seal.io for $60,000 and James Booth’s payment plan sale of Gaming.io for $105,000, we have another high-value .io sale.

This deal will rank as the largest .io sale of the year, at $90,000, beating the previous incumbent, Formula.io by $2,000.

The sale of the domain, mentioned in the tweet below, was announced by owner Bar Franek on Twitter, who acquired the name in 2020, according to DomainIQ’s Whois history.

According to Franek, the deal closed via Afternic, with the buyer hitting the “BIN” (buy it now) button at the GoDaddy-owned marketplace, without negotiations. The domain has already been transferred to the buyer, who is unknown at this stage.

  1. So the seller just paid Godaddy 15%, or $13,500 to use their lander? The BIN fees should be 1-2%. No clue why people accept paying these ridiculous rates to just use a landing page.
