The .org extension was in the news a lot in 2020, many organizations, investors and other interested parties were anxious about a potential sale of the registry to Ethos Capital.
Then on April 30, 2020 ICANN says no sale on .org. On the reported sales side of the coin, .Org has continued an upward trajectory in sales over the last 5 years.
|Year||# of sales||Total Dollar Volume||Average Sales Price||High Price|
While 2020 did not produce one blockbuster sale like Q.org or Casinos.org it made up for it in volume and 2020 showed the highest average sales price over the last five years.
When we look at 6,032 reported .org sales in 2020, 3,395 took place at GoDaddy. So many were expired, SEO link plays like CiteULike.org.
Sedo has averaged around 135 .org sales over the last five years.
