Domain Holdings released its quarterly domain name sales report this afternoon covering the first quarter of 2015. The company announced it sold just under $5 million worth of domain names in the first quarter.
The company is reporting that things have been going quite well through the first quarter of the year. “Overall, Q1 was a great success and had an amazing start. We are expecting to have another solid quarter by increasing our sales through continued dedication to our existing clients (buy requests), secure more inventory, new relationship generation, maturing pipelines and new marketing campaigns.”
Some of the Q1 report highlights include the following:
- $365,701 Average Weekly Sales
- $49,522 Average Domain Sale Unit Price
- 64.58% of ALL Sales End Users
- Average weekly sales up 39% over Q1 2014
- Total sales up 40% over Q1 2014
- Average domain sale up 35% over Q1 2014
In the report, the company also discussed the types of domain names that it has been successfully selling, as well as the target market of domain buyers. It’s not surprising to me that the US and Chinese markets saw the most sales action for the company during the first quarter.
One of the most interesting aspects of the quarterly report is the “looking ahead” section, where several predictions are made about domain values and sales for the remainder of the year. I won’t spoil the report for those who wish to read it in its entirety, but it looks like the company is anticipating continued success for the rest of 2015.
