I am listing today my .NET domain names that I have sold in the past 10 years. I don’t really like .net and I think that it shows.
Some of the domain names have been hidden because of confidentiality agreements, so I don’t reveal certain parts of my strategy and various other reasons. Sorry for this. A lot of the domains were sold through Sedo, so if you search the Sedo domain name sales reports you will probably find most of the hidden domains listed there.
So here are my 14 .net domain name sales for each year since 2005 and up to 2013 (number of domain names sold each year, number of *s is the actual number of characters):
**********.net 750 Euro Sedo (2 words)
**********.net 1000 Euro Sedo (2 words)
****Online.net 4500 Euro Sedo (2 words)
************.net 3,000 GBP Sedo (2 words)
*********.net 6500 Euro Sedo (2 words)
**********************.net $12,500 Sedo (2 words)
*******.net 3100 Euro Sedo (2 words)
*****************.net $3,500 Escrow.com (2 words)
DVDr.net $2000 Escrow.com
LeftWing.net $500 Escrow.com
EscortAgency.net 2000 Euro Sedo escrow
LondonEscort.net 2000 Euro Sedo escrow
MyLinks.net $3,000 Go Daddy
SiteMonitor.net 2,250 Euro Sedo
Surprisingly almost all sales were for 2 word domains. (except for dvdr.net)
The 14 domains listed above have a total sales revenue of about $55,000. The conversion from Euro and GBP to dollars was estimated.
The average .net domain name price is $3,929 and the median price is $3,000.
Sales from 2014 have not been included. I have a list of a few other .net domain names that I remember selling but I don’t remember when and for how much. I have only included sales that I found in my Sedo and Escrow.com accounts.
Some interesting facts about the sales above. I remember selling Mylinks.net for $200-300 sometime around 2004 and then it dropped in 2006 and I bought it again and then I sold it again in 2012. I only own 55-60 .net domains now and considering 10-15 are defensive registrations, I think I made some good sales. I have made some solid profit on them over the years. Maybe I was wrong not liking .net after all.
If anyone has any doubt that this list is not correct or it is fictional then please let me know what sale you don’t believe so I send you a screenshot from Sedo or Escrow.com and my bank account. (I get a lot of these people whenever I post sales.)
This is the second post of a series of articles reporting my domain name sales in the past few years. A lot of people were asking for this so I am just getting started with .info and .net. .Us, and .Biz will follow and I will end with .org and then .com. .Net has the fewest sales of all.
You can find all my .info sales in my post “100 .Info Domain Name Sales In 10 Years For $330,000+“.
I’ll have to admit .Net has not a great TLD for the Spanish market. Yes, I sold a couple of .Nets in November but for low $XXX even on solid search volume keywords. .Nets do get registered by small businesses and developers but generally because they don’t want to pay for an aftermarket .COM domain.
Love those EURO sales, makes a big difference to the bottomline.
I agree, also I avoid .net, anytime I can get rid of one to a end user, I am more than happy to do so. Basically buydomains portfolio has a lot of matching .net/.orgs they have priced $388-$888 for the most part.
Seems like you caught .info during the right upswing, and did much better there than .net
The truth is that buydomains.com has some pretty good deals even in .com.
I have bought a few domains from them.
okay so i am a cheap skate but i find great .nets on any drop not so for .com buy a .com for 100 bucks and sell it for 1000 or but a .net for 10 and sell it for 1000.
Some nice sales but once again it showed .net is on the slower side but considering most were 2 word domains, final price was impressive and good to see you made decent ROI.
Let me tell you some interesting fact about MyLinks as well… I came to knew about MyLinks.net sale a week later once it was sold in 2012 and today I knew it was you the seller… Btw, my father owned the same domain in .org and we got offer at GoDaddy. We knew the buyer was willing to buy in some other tlds as well so countered with $4,500 and finally sold for 4k. Always good to keep an eye what names sold for what and when.
I too noticed the .org sale! 🙂
Lol, honestly .org is a stronger extension.
May I ask-when you sell on Sedo-do you actually list on the auction or in their Premium MLS and just wait-I haven’t had a lot of luck with them and need some advice-thank you!
I used to sell at Sedo but I stopped a couple of years back.
I was parking the domains and getting inquiries from there.
Never used MLS.
