Sold for $149,000 |

Early this morning, I saw a tweet from Kukuh Laksana announcing the sale of for $149,000:

The seller of, Nikul Sanghvi, confirmed the sale in a subsequent tweet. Nikul also provided additional information about the sale, including that it was sold via using the buy it now purchase option: was registered on April 5th of this year, making the domain name just six months old. The domain name is registered under Whois privacy at Namecheap, so it is unclear if it has already transferred to the buyer. Because Nikul was informed that the domain name was sold, I believe that means that already processed the buyer’s payment so the deal should be done once the ownership change occurs.

The .so extension is the ccTLD for the country of Somalia. According to NameBio, this is the largest sale of a .SO domain name (thanks, Leanne). Importantly, the SLD is the keyword “meta,” which has seen several solid sales this year. In fact, the sale of is the second six figure Meta ccTLD sale of 2021, sitting comfortably ahead of the $100,000 sale of There are quite a few nice sales of “meta” and “metaverse” domain names that transacted this year, according to NameBio. Once indexed by DNJournal, it will be the fifth largest ccTLD sale of 2021 and will rank in the top 100 domain name sales of the year (to date).

Congratulations to Nikul on an exceptional sale.
