GoDaddy has started reporting some of its top domain name sales on a trailing basis, with the approval of both the buyer and the seller. This morning, GoDaddy reported a handful of its top domain name sales from November of 2020. Nine of these domain name sales were in the six figure range.
The top publicly reported sale in GoDaddy’s report is Exclusive.com, which sold for $350,000. I believe the domain name had been owned by Merlin Kauffman’s company, True Magic, prior to the sale. The domain name now has a coming soon page, and it appears to be some sort of payments company that will be using the domain name.
An interesting sale in the list is Linktree.com, a domain name that sold for $138,000. Linktree is a popular “bio link tool” that I have seen regularly on social media profiles, allowing creators to share a page with multiple links. Linktree uses the Linktr.ee ccTLD hack, and Linktree.com currently forwards there. It will be interesting to see if the company opts to use the .com domain name or simply acquired Linktree.com for forwarding.
One other notable sale is ALeader.com for $68,500. That domain name was sold for just $2,701 on NameJet in August of 2019, once again proving that there are still deals to be had in auction.
The list of the top public domain name sales from GoDaddy is below. Keep in mind, thousands of domain names are sold via GoDaddy each month, and this represents just a fraction of them.
I added the two one word .com domain name sale, Exclusive.com and Wingman.com, to the Embrace.com list of one word .com domain name sales, and I am sure these sales will be added to DNJournal and NameBio.
