Today's Exciting Domain Market

February 2015 showed fantastic sales by DomainNameSales.com with the top ten sale of ErectileDysfunction.com at $241.000. March' domain sales as reported by DNJournal too, are as good and as solid as can be.

CurrencyConverter.com brokered by DomainNamesales makes this transaction one of the highest March sales at $150,000.

And so, the dot-coms have it again and we see quiet a few domains composed of two words with sales above the $10,000 mark, like MissCandy.com, EasyFlyer.com, OneCoin.com and ThreeSisters.com just to mentioned a few.

But there is something new.
In order to be a bit 'unique' people now start to play a bit with domains, by adding 'my' in front of an URL.  Since most domains, no matter how long or short are taken this could open a whole new horizon on the domain market. While this has been going on for some time, we only noticed more of this phenomenon recently.


Thus, now we have MyWeddingDress.com selling for almost $10,000 and BuyMyHouse.com scoring a high sale at $45,000. Also noteworthy MyLearning.com and MyHomeValue.com both sold also for $14,000 and $12,000 respectively. In 2014 we saw 'my' showing up for the first time in domains like MyWork.info, MyTravelPlan.com and MySale.de 

 
It's like starting an entirely new set of domain names. One of these days you're bound to notice a 'my' domain name popping up near you.

Adding 'my' in front of any dot-com domain could solve the severe shortage of quality TLDs and would eliminate the need to deal with those pesky little gTLDs.
Again it is also worthwhile to point to the abundance of sold three word domains. MakeItPop.com sold for $25,000 (by Most Wanted Domains), TakeTheChange.com (sold by sedo) for $15,000 and the TheRecRoom.com for $89,888. In February another big sale, NewYorkNightLife.com, sold for $50,000.

In the past there had been strict ​requirements​ at times, imposed by domain brokers when you wanted to offer a domain for sale through an auction or otherwise.

Many brokers accepted only one word domains to add to their list, hyphenated domains would always be rejected  and, god forbid, no numbers. Sure, a one word dot-com is superior to others but have a look below what​ has just been ​sold.​

Free-Spins.net (with hyphen) sold ​at almost $6,000, 123Logistics.com (with 3 numbers!) at $10,000 and in February Type2Diabetis.com sold for $30,000.


​There is a market for any domain if it fits the content of a website or describes the business ​with a catchy phrase, hyphen or not. (In Europe, with two or three hyphen in a domain at times it's a bid overdone, though).


Which brings us to the ccTLDs, the country codes. Siebdruck.de (relates to the printing business), sold for €12,000, Pass.co went for €9,500, Seepferdchen.de (cute seahorse) sold for €8,000 and Alpiniste.fr sold for a low €4,500. The later being a one word domain has been in my opinion given away to cheaply.

Interesting also a dot-us, not seen in a long time, CaliforniaPoker.us sold for a fair price at $10,000.
Rumors have it that dot-com make a come back. What come back? They always have been top level. Just check past and current global sales at Domain-inventory.

There are so many more great top level a well as country code domains sales.

To get the whole picture you should really visit either DNJournal.com or my SOLD section to get an idea and to compare prices. 

It will give you a pretty good idea of how much a domain might be worth in today's exciting domain market.
