Report provides rich data on domain names and the aftermarket.
A few weeks ago, Sedo and InternetX released a Global Domain Report covering data about the domain name industry and their own businesses. I was at NamesCon and bogged down but I finally got a chance to review it last week.
Here are some of the interesting stats from the report. You can download the full report here.
Domain search of all TLDs by length
I’ve seen many charts showing that most domains that sell are about 7-12 characters, and prices drop off from there. This chart from InternetX shows the length of domains people are searching for, and it’s no surprise that it correlates with what’s selling.
Domain aftermarket prices
The report reviews domain sales data at Sedo and breaks out data in an easy-to-read format. For example, you can review top sales by country code. I also found this chart showing median prices interesting:
Note how many domains are selling at low prices. Half of .com domains are selling for under $630! Also, note how much higher .AI domains are selling for. Keep in mind that many of Sedo’s customers are other domain investors, so median prices here are a blend of end users and investors.

There’s a lot of other good data in the 40-page report.
