Knowing public domain sales prices is one of the keys in making good business decisions when it comes to buying and selling domain names, and it’s also helpful in negotiations. This type of inteligence can be difficult to ascertain, especially when it comes to sales that are just a few thousand dollars or less, which wouldn’t be reported on sites like DNJournal.
One of my favorite domain tools is DNSalePrice because they have a ton of domain sales data from a variety of sources. It’s a no-frills site with a ton of information and quite a few search options. The site was launched in 2006 following endorsements from Ron Jackson, Matt Bentley and other early leaders in the domain industry.
To provide data that is consistently reliable and trustworthy, the site typically uses only data from the major domain channels such as Sedo, Moniker, Afternic, GoDaddy, DNJournal, and a few other trusted sources. Earlier this week, I learned that DnSalePrice recently complete a substantial update, with the additional of $83 million in domain sales from 2010.
DnSalePrice is the largest repository of domain sales and includes over $700 million in domain sales records from 1995 through the present. It’s great to be able to track domain sales that are difficult to find elsewhere and can be helpful in negotiations – both buying and selling, when I find a favorable comp.
DnSalePrice was developed by Richard Wixom, a software architect who has extensive experience in both database and web development. Richard splits his time between domain investing, software consulting, has wife and three sons.
It’s great to have such a useful (free) resource.
