    Hi guys!

    Yesterday I sold my first domain. The good feeling was awesome!

    Suprisingly for me, the domain I sold was datenschutz.space on mid xxx$

    Do you think is overpriced or underpriced?

    Thanks!

    Super, what a start.

    Datenschutz is a great German keyword which I personally would not combine with an English nTLD. Your sale proved it´s a good combination.

    Congratulations on the sale. There are not that many .space sales, and in my opinion your pricing was just right. Yes, a few five-figure sales but they were registry sales of really superb combinations. Most sales have been at less than yours (low $$$) so I think you priced it just right.

    Best wishes for more in 2020. Out of interest do you hold many .space?

    Congrats on becoming a domain name seller, the first sale is always memorable!

    Re the price, it was apparently a price you and the buyer felt was appropriate so a deal was made at a price that was right for both parties!

    And agree with Bob's comment above re the right pricing of your name.

    There are several English translations for Datenschutz with a different focus: data protection, data privacy, information privacy, data security.

    Datenschutz is the right of everybody to possess and use his personal data. Datenschutz wants to protect the web user against other online forces, the citizen from the state, the customer against the company. A big legal issue worldwide I believe but the masters of data protection are to be located in the European Union and there in Germany. We even have a basic right of informational self-determination.

    Just for fun I calculated the sell-through rates for .com and for .space. I took sales from NameBio over past two years, and then divided by 2, and names for sale via the Dofo extension detail (about 10,700 .space are for sale vs. 15.3 million .com).

    Anyway the apparent sell-through rate for .com is 0.54% while that for .space is 0.070%. These include all sales above $100 so probably quite a few acquisitions by domainers, especially contributing to the .com totals. To get some sense off this I deducted GoDaddy, Dynadot and NameJet auction sales and the .com sell through rate becomes 0.38%, whereas .space goes to 0.065%. So overall, the apparent sell-through rate of .com is about 5x that of .space, but small number statistics. By the way, the way select/deselect works on NameBio I have had to exclude a few others, but I think the numbers are approximately right.

    These are apparent rates based on NameBio reports, so you can apply some factor (like 5 to 10x) to get a real sell-through rate from an apparent one.

    One advantage of being in smaller niches is that there is less competition in names. It is interesting to ponder if there were more .space listed for sale, would more sell. I don't know. A bit smaller than yours, but I had a $$$ .space sale last year. Interestingly, it also was a foreign language word (French in my case). Proportionally for me too, based on tiny statistics, I had more luck in 2019 in .space than in .com. But yes, I do realize that 85% of the entire aftermarket sales volume is in .com.

    In any case, sell-through rates on an industry-wide basis are simply that, and for each of us it is the sale itself that matters. And congratulations again on that sale, @M0rd0r! Now with this success are you anticipating any other acquisitions in .space?

    Bob
