3 insights on the top ten domain sales from yesterday

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:

Top ten domain sales

It’s easy to spot three trends here.

  1. 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.
  2. BuyDomains takes the cake as the #1 marketplace representing 40% of the sales from yesterday followed by Go Daddy at 30%.
  3. 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!

    Create topic “Post your domain for up to $1000” once a week.

    Your blog will gain and domain name investment community will benefit.

      It is just low quality crap. People can go to Afternic or eBay if you they want to see a bunch of low quality domains for sale.

    You can probably get into the difference between investor sales (GD Auctions) and end-user sales (BuyDomains) and who paid too much or too little, where.
