I missed this earlier this week, but DAN.com founder Reza Sardeha shared some interesting cumulative stats that I found interesting. Reza’s posts were made deep within a long NamePros thread called “DAN.COM Domain Marketplace (Official Thread).” The statistics were brought to my attention this morning in a tweet from domain investor Nikul Sanghvi:
👉 900k domains using their nameservers
👉 Close to $2m a month in domain sales
👉 1.5m unique visitors a month go direct to https://t.co/NOPwRIGvKa
Incredible … congrats guys 👍 pic.twitter.com/P3H93nwX8n

You should read the thread and Reza’s posts in their entirety to get more context, but in summary, Reza mentioned the following stats in his NamePros posts:
- $2 million a month in sales
- 20.97% of traffic is US based
- 1.5 million unique visitors a month
- 900,000 domain names use DAN.com nameservers.
In his posts, Reza also discussed how domain names and sellers are ranked within DAN.com searches, and he provided some insight about how the company’s search algorithm works and returns results.
