IO.net Sold for $118,000 in Biggest Non .Com gTLD Sale Reported Year to Date

Mansour Elseify (DomainsNext.com) has closed a huge two-letter .net sale, moving IO.net for $118,000 in a transaction handled by GoDaddy Broker Ray Shannon. Mansour has been in the domain business since 1999 (four years before DNJournal even existed and just four years after IO.net was registered for the first time in 1995)! 

When we add this sale to our charts August 30 (the date of our next bi-weekly domain sales report) it will take over the top spot on our YTD Non .Com Top 100 Sales Chart (assuming no larger sale from that category comes in before then). IO.net went for four times more than the year's previous top sale in this TLD - Cloak.net at $29,888. It is also the biggest .net sale reported since March 2021 when an eye popping $750,000 sale of Poker.net stunned the domain world.
