    Minds + Machines has billed $3.2 million in .vip domain names sales after the first five days of operation, the company said this morning.

    It’s already managed to pay off the cost of acquiring the domain at the September 2014 auction, which was $3.1 million.

    Between 1600 UTC May 17, when .vip went to general availability, and the same time May 22, the gTLD racked up 203,720 domains, the company said.

    The $3.2 million is a “billings” number, which will convert to accounting revenue over the lifetime of the domains.

    100.000$ to completely pay off the cost of acquiring the domain in just five days is a pretty great deal. A gTLD racking up more than two hundred thousand domain is outstanding too. They got a big bargain there with the acquisition of that domain.
