.Club is a top seller.
NameBio, a domain sales data site, published details this morning about which new top level domain names are selling best on the aftermarket.
Here are the top 5 based on publicly-reported sales, ranked by dollar volume:
You can see the full chart here.
NameBio’s Michael Sumner provides a number of caveats, and I think it’s worth reviewing them.
A key one: NameBio’s database only includes public sales it gathers from Sedo, NameJet, Flippa and other marketplaces.
I’d note that, because Afternic isn’t reporting sales right now, we’re potentially missing a big part of the market.
.Club is certainly doing well, and its exclusive deal with Sedo means its sales get more exposure. .Club’s numbers should go up a lot when the $150,000 wine.club sale closes, too.
You should also consider that many registry-sold domains are at premium prices, and arguably could be included in TLD’s total sales as a sign of a TLD’s overall value. I believe many of the .Club sales reported on Sedo were actually sold by the registry, so NameBio’s number don’t necessarily reflect domainer flips.
