    having gay.app isn't going to rank them any better - SEO is based on content, not names

    IMO - the overspent and they wasted a lot of money on something that they most likely didn't need

    that's assuming it is legit

    If it’s legit then they need to fire some people on their executive team. Simply for the fact it was probably no more than 10k a few weeks ago.

    Such great news. I, like many other people, knew it before investing in it. And what really matters End users already know the potential of this extension backed up by the most important, and with more expectations, company in the world nowadays. Apps are the future (Android, Apple, Windows, IOT, upcoming companies and a large etc...).
    This sale is better than what was expected.
    .APP already on place number 17 of the most registered gTLDs, on top of .tech .store .life .group ....
    Congrats to the seller. BRUTAL R.O.I !

    The seller of this name was Zhan Baosheng. The same guy that apparently fakes the sale of Father.com for $1m once upon a time. Also the same guy that had a registered TM for Tesla and sued them.

    I would be very suspicious of this "sale".

    It's even plausible that perhaps the name was sold for a smaller sum, and there was a PR agreement to say the sale was 1Mil.

    Too many question marks for me.

    I agree with this. It may have sold, but 1 million just seems too ridiculous when they could've picked it up for 10k a few weeks ago as you mentioned.

    You sometimes never know if the seller doesn't report it or if they have an non-disclosure in place.

    Okay okay okay....

    Wasn’t gonna report this.... but I feel I must....

    I was the seller. Yup. 1 million buckaroos!! And I am certain the only reason I was able to sell it for that price is because I own a “3 wolf moon” shirt. The “3 wolf moon” shirt is the most amazing piece of clothing I have ever owned and undoubtedly released its magical powers into the domain universe and caused this amazing highly inflated sale to happen!

    I have already blown the full million on “3 wolf moon” sweaters and shirts for me and all my friends as well as for all of the local school kids and church groups... please read reviews here https://www.amazon.com/review/R2XKMDXZHQ26YX

    The shirt is amazing and I believe everybody should own one! It changed my life and it could change yours as well!

    That makes absolutely no sense to me. Not saying you’re wrong, because I truly have no idea.....

    But, do you really think a company running a gay website with no affiliation to an “app” registrar would spend $1 million on a name just to help out?

    What am I missing here? I don’t understand why anybody would do that.

    And spend 500k in SEO, and in 8/12 months they will rank 1st pos in Google for: gay app.

    Even with big budget I'll never understand why spend this amount.

    We're no longer in the 90s and with gay.app you'll never rank in first page for gay app search (nor in first 10 pages).

    How many people digit gay.APP in their address bar???

    I think he's saying the sale didn't happen. Posting fake sales is the most common way to try pump up an extension, it happens all the time with new extensions, I remember the $1.6 million sale of Horse.ae when .ae names became available to anyone.

    Who uses an address bar anymore? Most use a search bar and get to their destination by clicking on the most appealing, relevent result. A name that perfectly matches the queried term, like this one, shines like a rainbow out of the 80+ million results.
