State of the Domain Market
One of the most rewarding things about my job is watching all you sellers, who work so hard to create and promote your auctions and convert some really amazing sales! While some weeks are better than others, there are also weeks like the one we’re currently in…where things are just off the charts!
At time of posting, within the past five days, Flippa domain sales have charted over $100,000. This might not sound like much compared to other domain hubs, but before recently, it was rare that we would hit this amount in any given month. I’m upfront about this because there’s no shame in it: Flippa was always a marketplace for websites; domains roamed about, occasionally making waves. But we’re seeing a real tide shifting, with more and more sellers hitting amazing Premium Domain sales out of the park.
Last week, we announced that you can now negotiate on ANY unsold auction, not just the auctions you were bidding on. The response has been met with great blog coverage and an amazing flourish of activity from interested buyers and enthusiastic sellers! This had a tremendous impact in our sales this week, with over $40,000 worth of domains closing after the auctions had ended!
Our biggest sale of the year (back in April) was privatized per the request of the buyer; so as our official second-biggest sale of 2014, I’m proud to announce Weights.com weighing-in at $36,500 — a property sold by brokerage firm Ejtel Consulting (who also sold Chisel.com back in April).
Usually, such a hefty sale would be an outlier for the week, but .COM absolutely killed-it, stealing five out of six top spots, including Kawaii.com (sold just yesterday for $10,800); the amazing three-letter duo of EIV.com and OZN.com ($9,200 and $7,300, respectively); and Pronounce.com @ $5,501.
Newly anointed Super Seller, “Federer,” moved the top non-.COM of the past week, Iraq.net, for $7,050.
.IO domains once again regained their hierarchy in the ccTLD space, led by the sale of Source.io for $4,100 via one of Flippa’s hottest sellers, ca98am79. This was one of the most-closely followed auctions of the week, garnering an amazing 101 bids!
Also making .IO gurus proud was the $3,200 sale of PPC.io, sold by Flippa seller rtzj00, who also sold Dollars.info (the top .INFO of the week by a mile) — both impressively via No Reserve auctions!
All in all, there were FIVE top-domain auctions that were transacted via the Post-Auction negotiation module, including a couple of cool brandable .COMs.
Two Flippa-Exclusive Domain Auctions closed successfully this week, as well, with more hopefully on the way. Keep an eye out for new Exclusives and Promos, as we continue this month’s anniversary celebration!
