Thursday is Best Day for Domain Name Sales


I’ve always been curious about the best day of the week for domain name sales. Afternic shared that the busiest day of the week for domain name sales across its network is Thursday. Tuesday and Wednesday follow closely behind Thursday:

Not surprisingly, Saturday and Sunday are the worst days of the week for domain name sales. I assume that is because most people aren’t working. Perhaps it’s also related to the fact that Afternic isn’t processing larger sales on the weekend, but that’s unclear.

Given the size of Afternic’s network along with its integration at most popular domain registrars, I would imagine this holds true for other domain name sales platforms.
