Spaceship Spaceship
In this week's Top Topics, the subject of a domain swap service is considered, and we look at iOS 16's new Mail feature. Elsewhere, a company completes a $1.6 million domain purchase, and a founder explains why they paid $35,000 for a .IO domain.

Would You Use a Domain Swap Service?

For a relatively small industry, there have been hundreds of innovations, new ventures, and developments launched to help domain name investors. We have marketplaces and domain liquidation platforms to aid domain trading, but will there be a domain swapping service?

Until recently, Chill Brands had paid $800,000 of a $1.6 million purchase price, thanks to a purchase plan that let the company pay for the domain name in installments. Now, Chill Brands has paid the remaining balance, confirming the $1.6 million domain sale.
