It is hot in .CLUB’s Fort Lauderdale headquarters, but the humid Florida weather was no match for some solid premium name sales during the month of July.  A number of registrars took part in a month long tiered premium name sale, driving a total of 72 names sold for the typically slow summer month.  With no auctions held in July, the 72 names generated a respectable $62,589.47 in sales.  In July, premium names were sold by 20 different registrars and also one sale was made directly by the registry. The top sale by a registrar was diamonds.club, sold by GoDaddy for $8,247.98 (discounted from $9,999.99).  The top sale of the month was the registry ’s sale of hotels.club, however the specific terms of that sale remain confidential.  While no auctions were held in July, an auction of 28 two letter names, plus a i.club and 777.club will be held on the Sedo.com platform September 9-16.

At the end of July the total cumulative premium name sales for .CLUB was $4,056,159.55.
