    If 20,529 names were sold through Godaddy auctions I would assume that these are the 700 or 800 that are in auction and bought everyday by domainers with 1 or 2 bids. So the rest are the buy now and negotiation sales that total 18,959 and these I would think are sales to end users so bottom line if I am reading this correctly I would come to the conclusion that end users use the “Buy Now” option 95% of the time. Yes or No?

      Todd, I think you’re reading the numbers wrong.

      39,488 total sold by Go Daddy Auctions

      Of those:
      20,529 domains were sold in auctions (i.e. multiple bidders)
      18,172 were buy-now transactions
      787 sales were the result of offers and negotiation

    I am reading the numbers right. What I am trying to get at is.

    1. If 20,529 domains were sold in auction wouldn’t you assume these are bought by domainers and not end users? I don’t know of one end user that even understands the auction process at Godaddy much less will sit through the auction process. So these 20,000 I would take out of the equation because they were not bought by end users and a $12, $20, $50, sale through Godaddy auctions should not count as an end user sale anyway.

    2. I would think that between the 18,172 buy nows and the 787 negotiable sales which total together 18,959 would be considered actual “End User Sales” and when you only use these sales the total of End users using the “Buy Now” option equals 95%.
