In the past week (July 7 to July 13), 570 (564 last week) transactions took place on Sedo’s marketplace and via SedoMLS, totaling $1.5 million ($2.4m last week). Only 188 (167 last week) domains from the 570 were reported by Sedo. The other domains were either private sales or domains that sold for less than 700 USD/EUR/GBP. Over 50% (45% last week) of total sales were the result of Buy Now listings. Sedo will not reveal what is the Buy Now percentage of the public sales vs the percentage of the private sales. And will not reveal what percentage of the total sales value do the Buy Now listings represent.
The average domain name sales price was $2,632 ($4,255 last week).
Here are the 188 public and reported Sedo sales for the week July 7 to July 13 2014:
Highest sale this week at Flippa was the domain name OAR.com that sold for $28,500. AZU.com sold for $18,000 and on yet another great .info sale the domain Shares.info was sold for $6,350. There were 2 other domains that made it at over 4-figures.
Post-Auction Negotiation was the method of sale for 12 domains of this week’s list. These Flippa post-auction negotiations seem to be working pretty well. The 2 highest domain name sales, OAR.com and AZU.com, were negotiated Post-Auction.

Just found a press release from Sedo that I missed last month. I didn’t find it in any of the other domain blogs so I thought it was worth mentioning.
Sedo did a survey that queried more than 1,150 individuals from the United States, United Kingdom, China and Germany about their perception and awareness of new Top-Level Domains (TLDs). Sedo does not give out any details on how these people were selected.
Data showed that China is much more advanced than the other 3 countries when it comes to awareness of new top-level domains (TLDs), and has a much more positive outlook for their adoption and success.
Here is what I found interesting in this report: Continue reading
Sedo just announced that it sold the domain name Logics.com for $50,000 USD.
The buyer is a software company named intellirose from Chicago. The domain Logics.com currently displays a couple of links to a cloud CRM solution.
The domain was sold by Advanced Logics Inc. from Florida. This is also a software company.
From what I see at archive.org they were using the domain as their company website and for email up until 2003 or 2004. Then they were only using the domain name for email.
Sedo just announced that it sold the domain name gca.com for $90,000 USD.
The buyer is not yet known as whois has not yet been updated and shows Sedo as the owner. The domain gca.com currently displays the default Network Solutions under construction/parking page.
The domain was sold by Glenhaven Capital Associates (formerly known as Gordon Campbell & Associates) from Toronto, Canada. As you can see even though they changed their name they kept the same acronym and still sold the domain gca.com and made $90k.
From what I see at archive.org they never used the domain to build a website. They only used it for email. Continue reading
Sedo is running a .INFO domain name auction in July. The new .INFO auction features 50 generic .INFO domains such as inbox.info and loyal.info that all owned by Sedo’s sister company DomCollect Worldwide Intellectual Property AG.
All domains have a 100-499 EUR reserve. The auction will run for 7 days, ending on July 17th at 6pm CEST. At this time 16 domains have bids but no domain has reached reserve. Highest bid is 200 Euro for sells.info.
Here is the complete list of the 50 .info domain in the auction: Continue reading
I am sure that this week Sedo had a 7-figure domain sale that was kept private. Usually Sedo has about a million worth of sales every week. Last week Sedo sold mm.com for $1.2m and made it to $2.3m worth of sales.
This week Sedo sold $2.4m worth of domains and the total number of domains is less than last week. Last week Sedo sold 614 domains while this week it was 564 domains. The highest selling domain name this week was Satoshi.com for $75,000. This and the rest of the public domain name sales can’t justify the total $2.4m sales. Continue reading

Namejet released it’s June 2014 domain name auctions report. Namejet sold 69 (76 last month) domains for $368,421 ($555,842 last month).
Namejet only reports domains that were sold for $2,000 or more. I am sure that the bulk amount of sales are below this threshold. Here are the 69 reported domain sales at Namejet:
