GoDaddy auctions sells 40,264 domain names in August
A good month for GoDaddy Auctions including a public six figure sale.
GoDaddy Auctions sold 40,264 domain names last month, up slightly from July’s 39,264 sales. (Numbers aren’t finalized immediately when the month ends, so August’s numbers might increase.)
As always, the most popular word in sold domains was “online”. That was followed closely by “home”. Health, media, blog, design, and free were also popular keywords.
Most sales were through auctions, although nearly as many were sold at “buy now” prices. Only 810 were sold through negotiation.
The top sale of the month was OPS.com for $100,000. It was sold to a Japanese company called Tibanne Co, whose website suggests that the company is still getting off the ground.
Here’s a look at the other top sales for the month:
iqualify.com $23,450 – bought by Open Polytechnic in New Zealand
goodmoves.com $16,000 – bought by Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations (SCVO)
