Mike Mann’s company owns one of the largest private domain name portfolios, which he sells via his marketplace, DomainMarket.com. This morning on Twitter, he announced that this has been “the best month yet” in his 20 year career selling domain names:
Ive been selling domains for 20 years. This is the best month yet.

While the success of one person or company doesn’t necessary mean much for the entire industry, I think Mike’s tweet is notable given the size and broad nature of his company’s domain name portfolio. It would be more notable for the domain name resale market at large if other large portfolio owners also shared that they had a great month.
My company has a relatively small portfolio of 500+/- domain names, so my monthly sales results wouldn’t be any kind of barometer for the industry in general. A few anomalously large sales can move the needle. Essentially, the velocity of my sales and offers wouldn’t be any kind of indicator of the health of the domain name resale marketplace.
Have you had a great month for domain name sales?
