Weekly Domain Name Sales March 13 –19, 2019

This is the weekly domain sales report (using NameBio listed data) for the 7 day period from March 13 –19, 2019.

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. The data is based only on those sales of $100 and more.

Weekly Statistics

During the past week the number of sales per day ranged from 240 to 306, one of the more active weeks since I began this series. 

The highest average daily price was $678. The lowest average daily sale price was $417. So while the number of sales was brisk, the average price range was normal or even slightly low.

The median daily sale price, a better measure of prices an individual investor is likely to encounter, stayed within a very narrow range from $195 to $236.

The number of daily sales above $1000 ranged from 16 to 38. There were 20 or more sales above the $1000 level on 5 of the days in the reporting period.

The daily sales volume ranged from a low of about $103k to a high of about $187k.

My Favourites

Each week I identify some names that stood out for me because they were creative, in important niches, or otherwise interesting. I also try to fairly represent the types of domains selling at significant prices during the week. While these are not exclusively the top sales from the week, most (not all) are selected from sales of $1000 or more.

My personal favourite names from this week include AnimeVision (org), BitcoinPlus (com), blizzard (io), BuyBoats (com), CBDoils (co), cryptotrust (org), graphenex (com), HelpClients (com), intent (io), kickoff (net), KidsTube (com), LogicTree  (com), mad (am), NextCar (net), policy (io), PolicyLab (com), SimplyTidy (com), skilled (co-uk), support (app),TalentSolution(com), ToDo (org), token (cc), uwalk (com) and  vortex (io).

Discussion

The trend of early 2019 for a relatively healthy number of sales continued, with sales volumes also robust during the week. The .com TLD certain dominated, although .io had an excellent week too.

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. Note that in these reports I give the number of sales and sales volume for those sales of $100 or more. Traditionally this was all that was available. Note that NameBio now give in their daily market reports a sales volume that also includes the sales under $100, explaining the difference from the values reported here.

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. In my introductory guide to using NameBio I provide additional details on what sales are included in the database.  

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.
