    @Jakker – How can you say $1,100,000 in domain sales, in one week, at only one venue, is pitiful? This is the market you say is dead?

    I think the country code tlds have overtaken the gtlds for good, they have been outperforming them in sales prices and numbers sold for quite a while now.

    @ Jakker

    Talking just about MAGNITUDE of Gross sales to gauge the relative size of the markets…

    $ 1.1M in gross sales might be “great” (to you) for the so-called LEADER in the DOMAIN “industry”

    Of course $1.1M in Gross Sales a week is great for you, Tom, Dick or any individual player.
    But get out into the real world..

    $1.1M in GROSS SALES a **WEEK** is PATHETIC in any other industry for the acknowledged *leader*.
    And this is GLOBALLY
    (Gross sales, not talking about their commission)

    It shows domaining (secondary market) is a tiny industry – the definition of *cottage industry*

    $1.1M that’s like the equivalent price of a SINGLE 1 bed apartment in the swankier parts of Manhattan or London.

    PS no doubt, as expected the “Tom’ & “Ray, “John” anonymous handles etc of the world will come out bragging about their 6 fig sales (all NDA naturally. LOL) & fantasy offers they all turned down.
    Tell them to post with their usual forum handle or reveal their WHOIS for consistency, if nothing else

    Really? This is surprising to me, because all of my neighbors and everyone at work are always talking non-stop about what domain names they want to buy next. It’s like a Beanie Baby craze!

    Sarcasm aside, of course it’s a small industry. But after reading your posts, Aggro, it’s all too clear that you just can’t help yourself from reminding everyone of that little piece of news, every single chance you get.

  4. says

    While I rarely agree with Aggro, I find the essence of what he’s trying to say, accurate. Mike’s post about how MSFT could have bought the entire industry with $6 billion or less, defines the max value of the industry. That’s small, compared to the entire tech sector.

    That being said, don’t confuse me with Aggro. 😀 I get hate mail from people that do just that.

  5. Back in the real world says

    Aggro –

    1 million dollars doesn’t come close to buying a decent one bed in Kensington, try 3 million. You can get a one bed in Mayfair for 2.

  6. says

    The results are low, but then again the domains are, with the
    exception of a couple, complete crap so I doubt the sale results
    mean very much of anything…

  7. says – So according to you, the above list is crap but the .me spamfest of Shits-and-Giggles, sorry, Bells-and-Jingles are amazing. I see.

  8. says


    Yes, the above list is crap, and no, i’ve never said
    that the .ME names are “amazing”.. I was just passing
    along a few words of encouragement to a guy whose
    first language is, clearly, not English and who is just
    trying to promote his names.

    For the record, i’m not over-keen on domain “hacks”
    that are any longer than 4 letters, e.g. in the case of
    .ME, that might be “”… or, indeed, what you
    probably do every time you read a domainer’s reply
    that you don’t agree with:


    Hehe.. :-)

  9. says – Thanks for clarifying, but I don’t see how domains that sell for $1k and up are ‘crap’. Inherently, positive dictionary words in com/net/org are fine and dandy. Some of my favorites from the list above:

    A lot of .fr, .de, .nl words don’t make sense to English speakers.

  10. says


    Ok, you have a point. For sure, I don’t normally use
    words like “crap” to describe anything, and it is true
    that, and do have some
    merit :)

  11. says


    “but I don’t see how domains that sell for $1k and up are ‘crap’”.

    I think the better (multi-part) question to ask is… Why do crap names
    sell for $1K+?.. And do they, in truth, actually sell for the stated price?

    A claimed sale price, on behalf of Sedo, accounts for, and validates,
    very little in my mind. My experience and intuition, re: domains is
    just that, and i’m confident that junk can be sold for a high price and
    it’s equally true that genuine quality can sometimes be had ‘for a song’..

    So, in other words, a claimed sale validates very little for me and won’t
    change my opinion on a domain’s value in any way.

    You might scoff at that, and be tempted to wheel out that tired old
    ‘domainer’ cliche “Well, it’s worth what someone is prepared to pay
    for it”.

    But to scoff at my comment is to mistrust your own instincts and
    disregard the more dubious virtues of Salesmanship… and I KNOW,
    deep down (reeally deeeep) that you know a little bit about domains
    and that you’re a clever chap…. :)
