Weekly Domain Name Sales Summary Oct 31 – Nov 6

Here is the report on NameBio listed domain name sales for the 7 day period Oct 31 to Nov 6, 2018. As usual, the daily summaries include number of  sales in total and over  $1000 in value, as well as average and median prices.  I also highlight a number of  domain names from each day.  

During the past week the number of sales per day ranged from 206 to 258. There were 200 or more sales on all days in the reporting period. 

The highest average daily price was $1271 while the lowest day saw an average of $425. The median daily price ranged from $220 to $310.  On only one day in the reporting period did the median price  crack the $300 level.

The median price ranged from $220 to $310, while the daily number of sales varied from  206 to 258.  Each day in period saw between 20 and 32 sales over $1000 in value.

The number of daily sales above $1000 ranged from 20 to 32. Only a single day saw more than 32 sales above the $1000 level.

My personal favourite names from this week include Alexa (ai), Babylon (co), BookTown (com), CozyNest (com), DigitalChain (com), GeneticExperts (org), InnerBliss (com), medicare (io), showcase (net), taxation (in), tokens (im) and YouWeb (net).

In the daily reports I kept the information as reflected in that  daily report.  Some sales are added to the database after the deadline and therefore do not appear.  November 4 had a number of significant  sales missing from the daily report.

I urge you to read the full Daily Market Reports at NameBio. I would like to thank Michael and others at NameBio that make this valuable database freely available to the domain community.

Should you want to get my reflections on the NameBio reported sales on a daily basis follow me on Twitter @AGreatDomain.  In case  you missed the preceding weekly report it is here. I will do another summary here in about a week’s time.  I  apologize for this summary being a little late in posting.
