Bill, your data is very much in line with the past five years of top publicly reported domain name sales, which is about 2500 domains for a data set.

Of the 176 "one word" .com domain names reported in those 5 years, I removed the 14, $1M+ sales and only included the 163 top reported one word .com domain sales, which results to an average sales price of $218,347 USD.

Of the "two word" .com domain name reported sales, this included 85. I removed 2 domains that were $1M+ and the average of the 83 remaining was $162,224 USD.


Nice post. Thanks.


Thank's Bill for the good article. I am surprised that .co and .io still have good value for start ups after New GTlds availability.

These conclusions are quite logical and are in line to what most already know, the shorter and more generic a name is, the better.


Great post

thank You for sharing.
