Weekly Domain Name Sales Summary Jan 22 – 29, 2019

This is the weekly domain sales report (using NameBio listed data) for the 7 day period from Jan 23 through Jan 29, 2019. This  reporting  period included the results from the NamesCon domain auction.

The daily summaries section below summarizes  each day in the format date, number of sales, average  price, median price, number of sales at or above $1000, and the total sales volume. It is followed by a listing of about a dozen domain names that attracted our attention. In some cases other brief comments are included.

Weekly Statistics

During the past week the number of sales per day ranged from 193 to 281. There were 200 or more sales on 5 of the 7 days in the reporting period. 

The highest average daily price was $8326, but if we exclude the day with the auction results the next highest daily average price was $601. The lowest average daily sale price was $481. 

The median daily sale price, a better measure of prices an individual investor is likely to encounter, ranged from $230 to $400 (the latter on the day domain auction results were included).

The number of daily sales above $1000 ranged from 13 to 76.  If we exclude the day with the domain auction results were included, the next highest number of sales above $1000 was 33. There were 20 or more sales above the $1000 level on 5 of the 7 days in the reporting period.

The daily sales volume ranged from a low of about $95k to a high of about $138k if we exclude the day with the auction results,  or $2.3M if that day is included.

This week was dominated by the release of the NamesCon RightOfTheDot–NameJet domain auction results  in the Jan 28 daily report. That auction accounted for almost all of the $2.3 million in sales for that day and pushed the average price for the day to $8326. 

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. Keep in mind that only certain venues report sales to NameBio.  These venues represent a mix of wholesale (domain investor to domain investor) and retail (domain investor to end user) sales. The median sales price should be interpreted within that understanding. 

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. We  have based the statistics reported here on only sales of value $100 and more, although the NameBio subscription plans allow you to study sales below the $100 price point.

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 hope to produce a few more weekly reports over the next few days to get caught up.
