CentralNic today announced it has made $2.5 million by selling off some of its stash of premium domain names.

The sales appear to be of “non-core” names unrelated to its registry business that the company has been sitting on for a while, rather than names that it has reserved in its own subdomains and new gTLDs for which it acts as back-end.

The company did not disclose how many or which names it has sold, but the sales all seem to have happened in the last few months, since it first announced its intention to liquidate some of its premiums.

CentralNic said its portfolio comprises some 20,000 names.

The company also confirmed today that its financial results for the second half of the year will be in line with expectations.
