Major domain marketplaces continue to innovate and grow.
The number of domain name sales venues is expanding. More importantly, the way these venues syndicate sales listings is leading to a more fluid domain aftermarket.
Domainers use a number of domain marketplaces beyond the usual suspects. Still, the big three dominate: Sedo received the most votes in this year’s Domain Name Wire survey with 39% of the vote. Go Daddy and Afternic received 12% and 9% respectively.
Forums are still popular for buying and selling — 11% of survey respondents said forums were the best venue.
When it comes to innovation, Go Daddy and Afternic pick up more votes. Sedo was still on top, but 17% said Go Daddy was most innovative and 15% picked Afternic.
