    Are there any publicly-available resources, sites, research, etc. that shows the domain aftermarket size?

    Looking for some general numbers: how many domains are sold on the aftermarket every day/week/month/year etc..

    I think a good place to ask would be namebio.com and domainincite.com.

    Of domains just listed for sale I have no clue ... but for the expiring side of things, in order to make my daily lists of expiring domains going to auction and closeout I go through GoDaddy's expiration lists daily.

    On average they have a little under 50,000 expiring domains at auction each day. Of those I'd say most are garbage and about 3% are taken at auction and/or closeout. It would be hard to get exact numbers (you would need to ask GD) as there is no efficient way of getting the domains that sell at final day of closeout ($5).

    I honestly don't have a clue of the exact size of GoDaddy's expiring names vs others, but I seem to recall reading GD represents about half of all expiring domains.

    Thanks for the insight... not just looking for GoDaddy's lists, though, trying to get industry-wide info. The number of aftermarket domains bought/sold every day. So that could include afternic, namejet, sedo, etc.

    Namebio is another great source that can get you those information you needed.

    recent DomainNameWire podcast featuring Jeff Gabriel. He projected that UniregistryMarket sales will reach $60M this year (up dramatically from about $40M in 2017). This is what he said:

    “…We finished a little bit above $40M in sales [in 2017] and then this year we’re tracking to break $60M in sales in 2018.”

    https://domainnamewire.com/2018/10/01/domain-sales-in-2018-jeff-gabriel-dnw-podcast-204/

    Sales for August (31 days) $4,903,658

    Sales for September (30 days) $3,971,693

    Sales for October (31 days) $4,363,801

    November sales came in at $5,360,768

    Yet whenever I inquire via Uniregistry my 10-25k offers get refused.
    When I contact the domain owner directly I end up picking up the domain.

    Too much greed when more than one party is involved.

    @bhartzer This might be possible from the APIs but it's a bit of a job. But doable, you'd have to write a few functions here and there. Is this for a commercial project or curiosity?

    @domainer111 it's more out of curiosity, but would most likely turn into a project. I think others would be interested in knowing how many domains are sold on the aftermarket every day/month/year. There are other places to get actual sales data, like @equity78 has mentioned. Right now it's not for a commercial project, although I'm sure it could become one if the data is accurate and people are interested in it.

    @bhartzer it's definitely interesting data. I am quoting the namebio headline data so much these days!

    I ask people I am dealing with to guess the total number of public domain sales on NB then regurgitate the number for them, today it's..
    Showing 1 to 100 of 100 entries (filtered from 639,973 total entries)

    I wonder would jmcc from is it... hosterstats.com be interested in it?
