Afternic Records Over $550k in .com Sales

18

Last week, Afternic recorded about $564,000 in public .com domain sales of $1,000 or more.  Two out of the three sales above $10,000 were Afternic DLS sales, not owned by NameMedia companies.

I think the sale of Tagalog.com at $12,000 was a great deal, considering it’s the language spoken by up to a third of the population in the Philippines, and it’s the second language of nearly everyone else. Here are the publicly reported .com sales of $1,000 or more from Afternic last week:

  1. Agree; Tagalog.com was a big winner for the buyer.

    12k to “own” an entire language used by millions? Tough to top that.

    Shoot–here in CA, they even print the DMV drive test / study book in Tagalog. Which is of course a wonderful thing … since all our signs are in English.

  2. I’m sure if you put out a ‘call’ to your viewers that watch the auctions all day at sedo, you can get a short list of the biggies, I was on the attorneys.info for a while, until it went beyond what I would pay for it, and I rarely don’t win an auction for a name I want, but .info, not worth that much to me and I have a ton of lawyer/attorney clients. .info was killed off by google in the past year, all our .info page 1 serp’s gone, all our other tld’s held, .mobi starting to get page 1 now, so google for whatever reason devalued .info
    So .info is not worth much IOP (in our opinion), but am I? I thought I was a fool putting 5K on that .info, way more than I thought it was worth due to the new .info issues not being page 1 except for low cpc country keywords maybe. All the high cpc terms we stuck, google wiped them last year. So .info is done IOP
    But a lot of guys that read you can probably shoot you a short list weekly, I saw this and that, and the numbers will be strong, AFN is AFN, sedo controls the higher auction sales usually, so if you have some hounds sniff for you, you can get a nice ‘highlight’ these went for over 10K this week at sedo. Just my 2 cents, well maybe 3.

  3. I think it is a headline making news that .CO Takes #1 Spot this week.

    Weekly Sedo gTLD Sales – .CO Takes #1 Spot

    tequila.co $14,500USD
    fish.co $4,500USD
    juegosgratis.co $2,250USD

    and my
    LLL.co $3,000USD

    Please write here if you have made any significant .CO private sales.

  4. sedo usually has names well over 14K, last week the attorneys.info went for 13K and that was a minor sale, but nice change for .co’s

    we hold some of our trademarks in .co as we do other tld’s, but other than that, IOP, .co will never be a page 1 site for organic seo serp’s so the values are all vanity IOP, great for short term speculation by ‘domainers’ that can’t see the forest from the trees I guess, the forest is big, and it is what do SE’s determine as relevant tld’s for global or national serp’s, .co will never hit high page 1 stats for most if not all high value cpc terms, unless it’s a spanish word, period, google has that tld flagged for what it is, a spanish speaking country code, so no matter what the ‘hype’ it’s a regional cc that should always have value for spanish keywords, but nothing else ‘long term’

    I guess Elliott wants Sedo to personally deliver him the weekly stats, until then, I guess I’ll have to look elsewhere for the numbers, I don’t really concern myself too much with what ‘domainers’ pay for domains, we buy to develop and we set limits in house as to investment capital for a domain, while a .com can cost still ‘millions’, most other tld’s are still secondary, yet they’re valuable to a development company that doesn’t want to put ‘millions into a perfect .com, and for many .com’s they’re long developed, if not poorly, so most of the plays IOP today for the gems are in the secondary tld’s and if it’s a few tlds’ it can hit page 1 and number 1

    .co being a tld to hit #1, not for a keyword of significant value, so while you have what appears to be some nice low sales in .co, they’re far from the ‘top of sedo’ and sedo is not the ‘top’, it’s a wholesale auction house for domainers primarily, the gems get offered to the top end users in sealed bids and you usually don’t hear of them, and that’s how it was done often a decade plus ago

    sedo is sedo, a market that gets ‘minor sales’ for ‘domainers, a nice place for domain owners to sell but the values are minor to what the same names can fetch with minor development

  5. “Last week, Afternic recorded about $564,000 in pubic .com domain sales of $1,000 or more.”

    Did you mean ‘public’, or does Afternic now have everyone else by the short and curlies ? 🙂

  6. “I guess Elliott wants Sedo to personally deliver him the weekly stats, ”

    @ Lords

    Yes, I don’t have time to aggregate their weekly sales from a variety of sources. It’s as simple as them adding me to their weekly distribution list, which I am sure will happen very soon. Just need to connect with the right person.

  7. Just noticed the list with the tequila.co #1

    WRONG

    the 2nd and 4th .de is more than the Tequila.co

    I guess the author has no clue the .de were recorded in euro’s

    so both .de sales top the .co

    I guess the author doesn’t understand euros are worth more than USD’s

    LOL

    That’s why I rarely ‘read’ what ‘experts’ in domains are saying, I understand the level most of the ‘expert’s are on.

  8. lol the .CO promotors find their way into a thread about $500,000 of sales in .COM- shocker! There are millions of English words, millions of Spanish words, and millions more combinations when you combine words to create phrases/descriptive names. A few sales of low X,XXX a week, with one or two X,XXX is nothing. But keep playing the lotto, leaves more .COM for real investors
