New Domain Extension Sales Oct 23 - Nov 22, 2018

I have decided to move my series of monthly new extension domain sales analysis reports to a the site, starting with the report through Nov 22, 2018.  I will continue to announce with a link to full report and summarize each monthly report here.


Here is a summary of NameBio announced ngTLD domain name sales for the period Oct 23 - Nov 22, 2018.
  • 88 NameBio recorded ngTLD sales in the 31 day period, with about $257,000 total sale volume.
  • The average sales price was $2920. The median price was $1404.
  • In terms of major sales, 11 were > $5000 and 57 > $1000.
  • Sales occurred in 24 different extensions.
  • The highest price sales were ($38,196), ($18,800), ($11,500), ($9750), ($8000), ($7567) and ($7500).
  • There were ngTLD domain sales during the month at 12 different venues. Alibaba Cloud had the highest number of sales (24) with Sedo second (15), although Sedo had a larger sales volume dollar wise.
  • Most ngTLD sales are either single word or very short (or both). Together those categories accounted for 72% of the sales this month.
  • Registries accounted for almost 51% of dollar volume and about 27% of the sales by number this month.
  • In 2018 YTD there have been 1363 ngTLD sales listed on NameBio, with an average price of $3606. Sales volume is just over $4.9 million YTD.
You can find the full report at this link. It includes a breakdown by extension, sales venue, and type of domain. I also list the highest value sales, as well as some of the names that I think span the dot effectively as well as some names that sold for value prices.

You can find the links to all of the monthly ngTLD sales reports in one place here

Note that at year end I am planning to change the reporting period for these reports to correspond with the end of each month. Therefore the next report will cover the period Nov 23 to Dec 31, 2018 and will be published early in January.
