One domainer investigated who was buying the domains it lost at auction.
Do you ever follow up on domains you lose at expired domain auctions? If you’re like most people, you just move on to the next domain.
But domain investor Digiventures Media Group, led by Fred Kauber, went back and looked at 150 GoDaddy auctions it lost over the past 12 months.
The data was interesting. In a tweet, it noted:
1) 47.3% of these auctions were won by HugeDomains; another 16.6% were won by PerfectDomain. These 2 players accounted for 63.9% of these auction wins,
highlighting the power of automation and capital in this marketplace.
That’s a significant percentage!
It went on to note that only one of the domains it lost appears to currently be in use by an end user. The remaining domains point to domain sales platforms.
