I have done another monthly analysis of all ngTLD sales reported on Namebio for the monthly period ending May 22, 2018. While the new .top registry data released and the .nyc auction explain part of the increase, it was even without that a pretty active month for ngTLD sales. Here are the highlights: 102 recorded ngTLD domain name sales; The average sales price was $3096, while the median price was $1000; 51 of the sales were for $1000 or more; In terms of major sales, 6 were for $10,000 or more; The highest price sales were my.bio for $61,002, go.exchange for $30,000, BroadwayTickets.nyc for $25,000 and my.tax for $22,500; There were sales in 23 different TLD extensions during this period; Sedo (35), Jiangsu Bangning (30), Global Registry (14), Flippa (8), Alibaba (6) and Dynadot (3) recorded multiple sales during the period, while six other marketplaces had a single sale. The full report is available on my blog at this link, and it includes a detailed analysis of the number of sales in each extension. At the bottom of the post are links to the two previous monthly reports, in case you want to make comparisons. One of the points that continues to surprise me is how, after a long period without significant sales, a high value sale suddenly takes place. For example, prior to the sale of my.bio for $61,002 the highest reported .bio sale was $7000 (for the single letter i.bio domain name back in December 2015). As Namebio report dates at least, the year 2018 up to this point has seen 401 reported ngTLD sales in the database, with an average sales price of $6411. The latter is highly influenced by the few huge sales, and is not reflective of a typical ngTLD sales price. As always, appreciative of the incredible Namebio database that makes it possible to analyze trends in domain name sales!
