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 are selected from sales of $1000 or more.

My personal favourite names from this week include 580 (app), basics (org), BitcoinBoss (com), BlueDot (com), BlueOrca (com), CloudPay (com), CryptoFunds (io), CulinaryArts (org), DataForge (com), DirtGuru (com), EcoDynamics (com), FairTradeResource (org), FintechSystems (com), genius (ly),GingerHaze (com), GreatChange (org), HeadZone (com), hipstore (mobi), KidsRadio (com), kites (net), LaunchPod (com), MagicRugs (com), Mailboxx (com), PodPal (com), RXrights (org), SocialRobot (com), stylify (com), swipe (io), timepieces (com), Trustify (info), TrySolar (com), VenusBliss (com) and VictimSupport (org).

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 the .com TLD has a good week every week, a number of other TLDs were also represented and  .org in particular saw consistent sales. Sales in .org have extended beyond the traditional nonprofit topics, and are now being found in two and even three word names such as BreakTheChain.

The week saw little activity in the new extensions, and only modest sales in country codes.

The colour blue seems to be popular of late, with BlueDot and BlueOrca among the sales in this weekly report.

The colour blue seems to be popular of late and domain names related to the topic of pods continue to sell well.

The pod niche continues to be very active, with LaunchPod and  PodPal among the sales.

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.
