With all 3 of the StartingDot TLDs now rolled out, and more registrars than ever offering .archi, .bio and .ski, demand has been increasing for StartingDot domain names in general, and premium names in particular.
“Just like real estate, the domain industry also offers prime locations which are seen as being more valuable. Our policy with regards to these “premium” names has always been to make them as accessible as possible.”
StartingDot premiums do cost more to acquire, but once yours they can be managed at your registrar of choice and renewed at their standard rate.
Spurred on by the awareness and anticipation of the .ski launch this past quarter has been the best on record for their premium sales, with one .ski name becoming the first five-figure StartingDot name to sell.
In Q4 StartingDot plans to release its inventory to new channels, organize live auction events for super premium names and continue working with community members directly.
Here is the summary of the StartingDot Q3 results:
- Average premium name selling price is over $1,000
- 80% of premium name sales came from inbound leads
- 670% increase in premium name revenue in Q3 compared to Q1 and Q2
Premium prices start at just a few hundred dollars, and the majority of these assets are priced at the lowest point .ski premium names. StartingDot say that they are selling fast.
