Go Daddy Auctions sells 30,000+ domains in September
Tuesday, October 2nd, 2012
Another month of over 30,000 domain name sales in Go Daddy’s aftermarket.
Go Daddy Auctions is reporting over 30,000 domains sold last month.
The ticker shows 30,839; the number is typically adjusted upward as final tallies come in.
The top reported sale for last month is CashLady.com at $36,000. The domain name was purchased by PDB UK, a payday loans broker in the United Kingdom.
Other top sales include:
startime.com $15,000 (registered in 1996)
chinatime.com $14,000 (seller was BuyDomains)
liveinstyle.com $13,500 (buyer is co-founder of Experience Commerce in India)
Just over 50% of the domains were sold in auctions. About 47% were sold at fixed prices. 451 were sold through negotiations; I expect this number to increase over time now that both Afternic and Sedo are syndicating “make offer” listings through Go Daddy.
“home” “online” was the most common word in the domains sold.
