SedoIt’s always interesting to read Sedo’s market reports because they tend to give a good overview of what’s happening in the domain investment space. With nearly $22 million in domain sales facilitated during the quarter, Sedo is in a unique position to give an overview on the health of the domain resale market.

Some second quarter highlights, as reported by Sedo include:

  • A total of 11,146 domains sold on the Sedo global domain marketplace during the quarter, showing continued growth in the domain market compared with Q2 2009;

  • Among ccTLDs, the .de extension remained the most popular, accounting for 64 percent of ccTLDs sold. The and .eu extensions both took secondplace, each representing 15 percent of sales on the marketplace;

    I find it odd that .TV was not even mentioned given that in the quarter there was an auction & sale of over a hundred premium keyword .TV domains plus a simultaneous auction of NP members of .TV domains. Since then there have been numerous .TV domain sales reported so in total there have to be over 200 SEDO .TV domain sales in the quarter. Perhaps .TV just barely missed the cutoff?

    .eu is getting stronger – there’s a lot of liquidity at .eu market which is very good for domainers and buyers (end users)
