One thing I realize that I don’t do often enough is analyze recent domain sales and share some of the trends in the market. I do this myself, pretty much daily, but typically keep it in my head or talk about it generally in blog posts. Today I was thinking it probably makes sense to do some of that analysis out in the open, so let’s do this thing.
The two places I visit constantly to stay on top of domain sales data are DNJournal and NameBio. Both have been providing a ton of data to domain investors for free for as long as I can remember so hat’s off to both for doing that.
So let’s take a look at the top ten domain sales from yesterday:
It’s easy to spot three trends here.
- Nine of the ten sales are .COM domains, German’s .DE which has a long history of being the top performing ccTLD was the only non .COM in the top ten.
- BuyDomains takes the cake as the #1 marketplace representing 40% of the sales from yesterday followed by Go Daddy at 30%.
- Seven out of the top ten sales are two-word .COMs.
Let me know if you like quick analysis like this and I can do it more often, or if you think it’s boring and obvious, tell me that and I won’t bug you with it again!
