GoDaddy Auctions sells nearly 40,000 domain names in October.
The monthly GoDaddy Auctions Domain Market Report won’t be as full of surprises going forward now that GoDaddy is publishing its sales along with Afternic’s each week. But there is still unique data in the October report.
The headline number: GoDaddy Auctions sold 39,830 domain names last month.
Whereas Buy Now and Auction sales usually account for about half each, this time auctions had a noticeable edge with 21,223 sales compared to 17,769 Buy Now sales.
“Online” was the term most commonly found in sold domains. Other popular words were home, best, and blog.
Here are the top ten public sales for the month:
skylofts.com $41,250 – purchased by MGM Mirage
suvidhaa.com $28,000 – bought by company that owns MySuvidhaa.com
