    Site lists top domain sales of all time.

    Domain investors looking for a little inspiration should visit SoldNames.com, a web site that lists the top domain name sales of all time by top level domain. The site is backed by Cybertonic, the same company behind PremiumDomains.com.

    For each domain, SoldNames.com lists its proprietary “premium score”, whether the domain is parked or contains a web site, the year sold, amount, and who currently owns the domain according to whois.

    One thing the site lacks is information about domains purchased with equity. For example, business.com is listed at a $7.5M sale price, although it really ended up being $2M. This type of information can be hard to come by.

    There are other sites that aggregate sales information. DNsaleprice.com and NameBio.com each do a good job of aggregating sales data from sources including DNJournal, Afternic, and Sedo, and presenting that information in an easy-to-search format. Despite SoldNames.com information being accessible through DNsaleprice.com and NameBio.com, I still think this is a valuable resource. There are a lot of blog posts about the “highest domain sales of all time”, but SoldNames.com provides an updated resource that should be fairly accurate at any given time. I find the valuable names score to be an interesting indicator as well.

  • Wonder if SnapNames would go after SoldNames with a trademark infringement lawsuit like it did with SwapNames…because Snap, Swap and Sold are very alike… :)

  • I don’t know how accurate this information is. I only know the history of one of these sites,creditcards.com, and I know that the “year” sold column is incorrect- it says 2000, but it should say 2004.

    What are the odds of that being the only mistake. Where are they getting this info?

  • Find All My Domain Names…

  • Thanks for sharing the info on this interesting resource.

    I found that “jobs.com”, sold to TMP (Monster) for a mere 800k$ was a major, major deal (for the buyer, of course) — that particular name is worth multiples more.

    The name “art.com”, which was sold for only 450k$, also appears to be an amazing bargain.

  • […] Via Domain Name News I recently discovered Sold Names, which aggregates publicly available price data for domain sales. You can also view last week’s sales at DN Journal. If you find someone underselling a domain name browse through their inventory and see if they have any others worth buying. […]
