So far to date, the $1.2 million sale of Super.com is the largest public domain name sale of 2018. Super.com sold via the NamesCon auction at the end of January, and the sale closed a few days ago, as reported on TheDomains.com.
The largest public domain name sale of 2017 was the $2.89 million sale of Fly.com. There were five other public sales for $1 million or larger in 2017.
Today’s daily poll asks if you think the $1.2 million sale of Super.com will be the largest of the year. Vote in the poll below and feel free to share additional thoughts in the comment section.
It’s only early March, so I seriously doubt it. But see my comments about the super.com sale here:
The crypto-currency market could provide fuel for higher sales.
Hard to say, but it really depends on what ultra premium domains go to sale during the next two quarters.
Definitely not as YES.com sold for 4.5 million Euros. More details here – https://www.namepros.com/blog/yes-com-sells-for-a-seven-figure-fee.1068321/
Definitely NO because YES… 🙂
And for the record, that’s still a big bargain price for a domain like that. Yes.com is worth at least 8 figures; anything less is a bargain. The “bargain” level should have been at least high 7. But yes, we still like to see news like that.
“around 4.5 million Euros”
I don’t think Ron Jackson and other outlets are going to record that unless they get proof and know the exact figure.
There are a fair amount of 7 figure deals that happen every year that don’t get reported. In this poll, I was referring to publicly reported sales.
Now that’s a blockbuster domain name.
Definitely not, Diamond.com was recently sold for more than that.
And it’s only early March … 🙂
I am sure there will be many seven figure sales larger than this one, but I was only asking about publicly reported sales that can be tracked.
Well, I can track this sale by myself, that’s why I mentioned it, I don’t need Ron Jackson or anyone else to know it was sold and for how much.
And keep in mind that sometimes also “tracked sales” (per your definition) can be suspicious … 🙂
I was going to say exactly what Abdul said. No, because Yes.com already sold for more this year.
Not sure why, but I’ve had more domain sales in 2018 (and just 2 months in) than all of 2017 — and all to end-users.
Maybe domains are back “in”? 🙂
