Domain sales database now easier to use and more valuable for finding domain name sales data.
NameBio, a web site offering historical domain sales data, launched version 4 last week. I’ve been playing around with it and am very impressed. It’s now easier to use and allows you to quickly adjust search criteria. There’s also a new premium service.
The neatest feature is that you don’t have to click a search button after entering a query. NameBio 4 starts returning results in near real-time as you type a term.
Here are some of the searches you can do:
-Keyword search, including specification for the keyword to be at beginning or end of domain
-TLD, min/max value, min/max length, hyphens, numbers
-Restrict search to dictionary terms
-Search for pattern domains such as three letters
The premium service alerts you to available domains in alternative TLDs when a name is sold. For example, if domain.com sells for $100,000, you’ll receive an alert that tells you if domain.net, domain.org, etc are available. If you believe in ratios between .com and other TLD values, this is a great service. I sometimes play this game by buying .net versions of .com domains that sell for a lot. For example, I picked up Newlyweds.net after the .com version sold for 6 figures. The premium service is currently $7.95.
