A look at who took this year’s survey.
Domain Name Wire’s 7th annual domain name industry survey has concluded with over 1,500 participants.
I’m busy collating and analyzing the results, which will be posted on Domain Name Wire throughout the month of February.
Here are data about the participants in this year’s survey:
1,593 survey takers
25.8% of people who took the survey own more than 1,000 domain names. 27 participants own more than 10,000 domain names.
The domain name industry is global. People from 79 different countries participated in the survey. The largest percentage were from the United States, but that still represents less than 1/3 of all participants. Other countries with a large number of participants are Canada, India, and Brazil.
73.6% of respondents consider themselves domain investors.
Stay tuned for the results…
Wow. I wouldn’t have guessed that such a large percentage of people would own more than 1,000 individual domain names. That’s quite astonishing, a definite sign that there’s still a major industry here.
Mike – The real question is, how many are pigeon sh@t 😀
@Acro LOL. Well… that’s true, too. But I doubt that anyone would invest money into buying 1000s of trash domains 😛
other Mike says
@Acro – damn, that reminds me i forgot to vote a write-in for PigeonDomains.com as best aftermarket 🙂
I think it’s safe to say that most (not all) of the results on this survey will be fairly accurate, as most domain industries such as Registrars, Parking, Escrow Services, Auctions and Domain Brokers did NOT encourage it’s members or customers to VOTE on this survey like one particular Domain forum did, which in the end skewed the results of “Best” Domain Forum.
