    Love the case-study examples:

    “Phrase.com..FreshApparel.com (sold for $5,250 USD), DigitalBrain.com (sold for $28,309 USD)”

    Add more examples, especially 2 word .com, which are more affordable to the average investor, and i
    feel, are more undervalued than one word .com

    Otherwise, keep up the great work! Def worth a read.
    Thanks for simplifying the industry negotiation!

    Thanks for sharing. Although, would appreciate your views specifically at the most popular ccTLDs.

    Insightful.

    Some follow up is needed though, especially when listing examples.

    Definitely dot com did not sell to an end user, an investor bought it & is now for sale on BrandBucket, for $90,000.

    All in all, good report.

    Here are some recent sales from top of my mind:

    RX.com: Recent anomaly that sold for $1M
    (I never said $1M was too low for any DN before..)

    I like RX.com (short for prescription) than voice.com

    Not many wrote RX.com should have sold for more...
    Voice.com is not the only outlier... Write about undervalued outliers, on other side of the spectrum.

    Agreed. I believe it was revealed that that one was bought by an investor as well.

    Thanks for the well written guide, @DomainAgents. You have covered many of the most important categories concisely and clearly. I like the structure of a short comment on a category including in most cases some examples is helpful.

    With country codes it is of course difficult because each TLD has its own nature.

    I have a couple of suggestions for a future edition. I would love to see some commentary, from an expert such as yourself, on mixed mode domain names. For example when I look at the top 100 (NameBio data) in the last year there are quite a few of these, such as:
    • C5 $135,000
    • 1M $112,000
    • 4T $100,000
    • 8T $76,000
    • 7F $68,000
    • 9J $60,400
    Admittedly not many new gTLDs make the sales list, but in addition to your short note re that option I would personally add a line stressing that in new extensions value is almost entirely due to the match across the dot. Examples in the top 100 sales for the past year, such as free.games at $335,000 and business.club at $60,936 demonstrate this well.

    Thanks again for sharing a well researched and written document.

    Bob
