Analysis Selling

Weekly Domain Name Sales June 12 – 18, 2019

This was a great week for the new domain extensions to complement the usual strength in the legacy extensions. There were more than 250 sales each day while the daily volume varied from $136,000 to $386,000.

Weekly Statistics

During the week the number of sales per day ranged from 265 to 384.

The highest average daily price was $1180. The lowest average daily sale price was $429.

The median daily sale price, a better measure of prices an individual investor is likely to encounter, stayed within a very narrow range from $200 to $236.

The number of daily sales above $1000 ranged from 21 to 45.

The daily sales volume ranged from a low of about $136k to a high of about $386k. Note that the volume reported only includes sales above $100 in value.

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 1111 (tv), AIsoft (com), Alps (ch), bingo (games), blockade (org), Blue-Moon (com),  BoatSafe (com), butterfly (club), CBDfitness (com), cocktails (org), CoinAcademy (com), comments (net), contact (agency), creator (cloud), DataAlliance (com), DoubleXScience (org), edibles (us), fox (club), Ice(land), IntegratedInstitute (org), LoveLetter (co), melatonin (de), motorsports (app), Poseidon (io), retouch (net), SaveGreen (com), ShareNow (com), ShopeeMall (com), SuperSassy (com), text (to), TinHat (org) and VoiceMale (com).

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.


While as always the strong majority of sales were in .com, this was the best week for the new domain extensions in quite some time. Significant sales took place in .club, .app, .land and .agency among other new gTLDs. Ice(.land) is an exceptional domain hack.

The generic country code extensions like .co, .io and .tv had significant sales, while .de had numerous sales during the reporting period and one significant .us sale.

Some nice single word .net domain names exchanged hands in  the reporting period, names like retouch and comments.

The safety niche has been strong in 2019, with names like BoatSafe, TextingAndDrivingSafety, and biosafety (all in .com) changing hands.

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.

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. You can get links to previous weekly sales reports all on one page here. 

Have a great week in domaining, and we will have the next weekly report here in about a week. Don’t hesitate to leave comments or suggestions for how we could restructure the reports to make them more helpful to you.
