If you don’t know James, you should – him and his brother, known as the Booth Brothers have played a role in some of the biggest domain deals in history. I often hear the Booth Brothers talk about some monster one-word .COM that they either bought or sold…but today James announced his latest acquisition, and as you can see from the list below, they’re all .IO:
Like most things the Booth Brothers do, the focus is on truly premium names and I think it’s safe to say this is a very solid list of names. My favorites are Smart.io, Gaming.io, and Sun.io but any one of these could sell for five figures IMO.
Of course this doesn’t mean James or his brother are suddenly moving away from .COM, I’m sure the vast majority of what they will continue to buy and sell will be .COM. That being said, they’re making a nice splash into the .IO space with a very solid acquisition.
My guess is over the next few months we’ll see some pretty interesting sales materialize as a result of these acquisitions. If I were to guess I’d say Smart.io will take the cake as the top sale but only time will tell.
What do you think is the best name on this list? I want to hear from you, comment and let your voice be heard!
