“Largest Domain Name Sales Database Ever Built” Launches WIth Over 315K Domains & $1,135,277,224 In Sales

March 7th, 2014 Comments off

According to a press release we received today the biggest domain name sales database ever built just just rolled out.

The database is at DNPric.es.

“”Currently the database has 315,461 domain name sale records totaling $1,135,277,224.00.

Not only you can lookup historic sales, the site also offers amazing stats section where you can fish for tons of interesting information.

Let’s have a quick look on it from different angles.

1. TLDs

While .COM is still the king with more than half of the sales (this correlates with the number of domain names) other extensions are doing surprisingly well.

For instance .ME, #9, topping even .tv and .co.

2. Brokers

Here we can narrow down the whole industry to five big players (Sedo, Moniker + SnapNames, GoDaddy+AfterNIC, TDNAM, NameJet, DomainNameSales), than another few dozens of boutiques.

3. Time

We can observe that overall average domain name prices are falling in the last few years. Especially those for .COM. And then, this year it started to improve.

4. Length

Interestingly, average prices for LLLLL names are higher than those for LLLL and LLL names.

Average historic price for five letter domain names (LLLLL.***)  is $6,060.81.

That for LLLL is $3,641.76.

And that for LLL is $5,653.34.

It looks like names that are too short but not ultra short (two characters) have somewhat less value than those of five characters.

A paradox that intuitively I am still struggling to explain.

Can you?

The longest known domain name sold is xn--private-krankenversicherung-fr-selbstndige-6sd16h.de a.k.a. private-krankenversicherung-für-selbständige.de.

Well done Sedo!”"

The database is available and accessible for free as of now.

Of course only publicly reported sales are included, which probably account for most of site developers issues regarding difference is longer domains selling for more on average than shorter domains.…

Architelos Publishes The Second Installment of the NameSentry Namespace Quality Report

November 14th, 2013 Comments off

Architelos, Inc. announced today the publication of the second installment of the NameSentry Namespace Quality Report.

The report benchmarks the comparative safety of the Internet and its largest Top Level Domains (TLDs) by measuring by the prevalence of security threats such as malware, phishing, botnets, and spam.

The findings indicate a 67% increase of domain names identified and listed as “abusive” by major blocklists from January to September 2013, and that at least 5.5% of newly registered domain names are being used to perpetrate security threats.

“The increase in abusive use of domains is a challenge for the security and domain industries, and for the general Internet-using population.”

Report Finds Increase of “Abusive Domains” and Potential Lessons for New gTLDs

The findings indicate 67% increase of domain names identified and listed as “abusive” by major security blocklists from January to September 2013.

These respected blocklists are used to protect Internet users by blocking malware, phishing, dangerous spam, and other threats.

The majority of the domains on these blocklists were registered for the purpose of perpetrating abuse, with a small minority consisting of domains that were compromised by bad actors. From January to September of 2013, an estimated 5.5% of newly registered domains were listed. “This underscores prevalent practice of bad actors to use domain names for perpetrating security threats and then quickly moving to new ones,” said John Matson, COO of Architelos. “The increase in abusive use of domains is a challenge for the security and domain industries, and for the general Internet-using population.”

The first NameSentry Report covered January to May 2013, was released in July and pioneered the concept of the Namespace Quality Index (NQI).

NQI measures the relative concentration of abusive domain names in any given namespace, thus providing a comparative measure of safety.

Specifically, the NQI measures the “number of reported abusive domain names/million Domains Under Management (DUM).” Taking a snapshot in May and then again in September, of the 15 TLDs with NQI ratings of “Excellent/Green” in the May, only 6% or four TLDs sustained their ranking by September, while the rest slipped to “Good/Yellow.”

This demonstrates the challenge TLDs face to achieve and maintain an “Excellent/Green” rating. The number of “Good/Yellow” rated TLDs increased from 36 in number in May to 45 total in September and represented 63% or the majority of the 72 TLD studied. The number of “Caution/Orange”-rated TLDs increased slightly in number from 14 in May to 15 total in September; and the number of at “Risk/Red” rated TLDs increased slightly from 7 in May to 8 in September comprising 11% of all measured TLDs.…

DomainTools.com Rolls Out Redesigned Site

November 1st, 2013 Comments off

A reader noticed that DomainTools.com has undergone a pretty dramatic designed home page today.

The home page has a much more modern look and feel.

Interestedly DomainTools.com which seemed to start out as a product geared towards the domainer community is now highlighting the usefulness of the site as a tool for Law Enforcement and Brand Protection Companies.

According to Tim Chen of DomainTools.com, the general context of site resign is really the the homepage which was meant to:
-starting to focus on our buying segments, rather than being what many people think of as a ‘collection of tools for domainers’

-to specifically add content for the enterprise buyers, who have been a fast-growing segment for us.   These are folks that need more than an individual membership (bulk data, custom parsing, group memberships, APIs, etc)

“It’s important to note that our domaining customers remain very important.  ”

“For them though, the DT homepage is not necessarily terribly relevant. ”

“We have a follow-on project to redesign this page:  whois.domaintools.com to better service our important domaining clientele.  ”

Here are some pretty impressive numbers of DomainTools.com records that are on the front page of the site now:

BY THE NUMBERS

3.8 BILLION  IP address change events
7.1 BILLION  whois records
2.5 BILLION  name server change events
1.4 BILLION  registrar change events

Verisign Launches of DomainScope: Domain Discovery Tool To Find Available .Com. .Net & .Tv Domains

October 18th, 2013 Comments off

Verisign launched DomainScope.com today which they say “a new domain name discovery tool designed to enhance the search for unique, relevant domain name choices in the .com, .net, .tv and .cc top-level domains”, for which it is the registry for.

“Incorporating the same functionality found in our DomainFinder, DomainScore and DomainCountdown tools, DomainScope replaces these tools and allows users to focus their domain search and uncover new domain name registration opportunities in one place.*

“DomainScope enables users to focus their search and uncover new domain registration opportunities, while providing more information about a domain name prior to registering it. To start the process, users simply enter keywords and DomainScope’s engine renders suggestions for domain names that are available.”

“From there, DomainScope enables users to discover domain name registration opportunities through learning about the recent history of a domain name, understanding a domain name’s DNS traffic patterns, and knowing which domains are available that are receiving traffic.”

“DomainScope offers a robust toolset for developers and domain investors, with access to a number of application programming interfaces (APIs) to connect to their own websites or applications.”

We are excited to offer those looking for their next great domain name a product that offers distinctive name suggestions, and relevant details about a domain name. We’ve consolidated our domain name acquisition tools into one easy-to-use website and will be adding new features in the future that add to the name discovery process.”

Registered users of DomainFinder, DomainScore and DomainCountdown can still access these tools during the products’ sunset period, which ends Dec. 15, 2013.…

CircleId Post Rips The Domain Name IDNX Pricing Index

August 14th, 2013 Comments off

Alex Tajirian, CEO of DomainMart in a post on CircleID.com just ripped into the IDNX domain name index backed by Thies Lindenthal and Sedo.

“The index is intended to be a benchmark for domain owners and investors. “

“But it’s out of line with other studies and the common sense of how a market operates. A much better barometer to follow is average prices for groups of domain names with similar characteristics.”

“Using a single index would have dire consequences. ”

“Other problems with Lindenthal’s single price index:

1. It’s based on information taken from just one market, Sedo. But other studies reveal that sale prices for similar names vary across marketplaces.

2. The reported index-price correlation with the NASDAQ 100 is grossly misleading. Why would prices of domain names of large companies move in synch with those of small and backdoor domains! One would expect that different groups of domain names would be correlated with different indexes depending on their risk characteristics.

3. The methodology is not robust to the presence of outliers in domain name price data.

4. The model does not identify risk factors driving domain name prices, such as the number of a domain’s key word searches, the cost per click (CPC) of the key word, the popularity of the key word as shown by uses of it on Web sites, etc.

5. The model ignores evidence of a nonlinear relationship between prices and the explanatory variables.”"

Of course we have spoken at TheDomains.com about the inaccuracy of automated models to value domains in the past and feel there is no substitute for the human element.

Someone by virtue of having a huge amount of experience in buying and selling domain names over the years.  Extremely long term domain investors  have developed a gut feel for what a domain name is worth.

We saw just the other day once again basically 50% of all domains that sell at Sedo.com sell for $500 or less and only 5% sell for $5,000 or more.

Over at MostWantedDomains.com we have a $2,500 stated minimum but in actuality rarely sell a domain for less than $5,000 and our average sale is closer to over $20K than to $500.

There are other large portfolio owners like Mr Schilling, Mr Schwartz, the Ham Brothers, and Scott Day just to mention a few who wouldn’t even bother to respond to a $500 offer much less sell a domain name for anything under five figures if not six figures.…

FreshDrop’s Pheenix Changes On Aug 1 To Accept Multiple Back orders & Provide For Drop Auctions

July 22nd, 2013 Comments off

Freshdrop which officially rolled out their back order program out of Beta on April 23rd under the name of Pheenix, announced today that it will be changing their back order system effective August 1st from a one domain per back order system to one which will accept multiple back orders on the same dropping domain.

Those dropping domains with multiple back orders will go into auction like they do on NameJet.com and SnapNames.com

Here is the official announcement”

“”I am pleased to announce that as of 2013-08-01 Pheenix will allow multiple backorders on domains.  For all domain names caught after 2013-08-01, if there are multiple backorders placed on the domain, then a 3 day private auction will be held.

“Only customers that have an active backorder on the domain name prior to the domain name being caught will be allowed to participate in the private auction. ”

“In addition, on 2013-08-01 we will allow backorders to be done on all domains, regardless of whether they are in ‘Pending Delete’ status or not.”

“Any backorder placed prior to 2013-08-01 on a domain name that is not in a “Pending Delete” status will be cancelled, and the domain name will be available for backorders from multiple parties as of 2013-08-01.”

“As many domain names have interest from multiple parties, this new feature will allow a fair chance for all customers to acquire the domain name.”
“In addition, we have updated our Terms of Service.  You’ll find the latest version located here:  https://www.pheenix.com/tos.php
Thanks for all your continued support.…

FAIL: DomainIndex.com Releases 8 Million Appraisals For New gTLD’s Domain Names

June 26th, 2013 Comments off

DomainIndex.com has released 8 Million Appraisals for new gTLD domain names those including trademarks and those with just generic terms and the results are pretty interesting.

Mt first observation is that of the new gTLD domain names with the highest valuation, only 1 non-trademarked term has a value in the six figures, Car.Insurance (which may not even be available to be registered depending on which applicant wins the .insurance new gTLD) at $125,000

All other new gTLD domain names are apprised in the five figures by DomainIndex.com

My second observation of the highest valued domain names include domain names in some extensions that have not even been applied for, as new gTLD’s such as the third highest valued domain, hand.bags which DomainIndex places a value of $85,935 on. The problem is no one has applied for .Bags; likewise credit.card which has a value of over $78,000 no one applied to operate a .Card new gTLD, .Cards yes, .Card no, DomainIndex.com gives a value of $84,000 to Hotels.Europe another non-existent new gTLD which would not even be allowed to be applied for under the ICANN Applicant Guidebook.  Also Included erronously are valuations for other extensions that have not been applied for including .Chicago, .houston, .usa and .angeles (which gets you Los.Angeles).

On the other hand new gTLD that have actually been applied for are seemingly not supported by DomainIndex and quiries on valuations returns errors like .NYC for example as our inquiry for hotels.nyc returned this message

We are sorry  hotels.nyc is invalid or unsupported domain name.

Likewise a inquiry for the valution of the domain name night.club returned the same message:

We are sorry night.club is invalid or unsupported domain name

According to DomainIndex.com the value  the keyword, traffic to the domain name are among the factors they used to derive valuation.  However DomainIndex.com seems to give the most valuation to domain hacks like the above non-existent hand.bags, credit.card (of course credit.cards would be a high value.

I know new gTLD registries are not going to be happy with these valuations as many are expecting multiple deals into the six figures for their super premium domain names.

Here are the highest values placed by DomainIndex in general I would place a GIANT FAIL on this attempt:

Verisign Launches Find Your Custom Domain Tool/App: Domaininspiration.com

June 16th, 2013 Comments off

Verisign released a new Tool called the Custom Domain Tool at Domaininspiration.com to help people find the perfect unregistered domain name.

The site preference is for you to log in with your Facebook account and then randomly generates domain names to match your profile however you can sign up with it using your email address as well.

In my case the Tool “randomly generated 209 domains based on your profile”.

The results seem to be geared to domain names my last name, my company my sports interests and professions couple with common words.

All of the domain names are available for registration but many of the suggested domain names are for .net, .tv and even .name domain names for which Verisign is the Registry for in addition of course to .com.

In my case some of the suggested available domain were berkensquartely.com, incresume.com, LightningTailgating.net, berkensmonthly.tv, berkensgroup.net, BuccaneersPodcast.net, LawSchoolGroup.net, MichaelsShop.net, TaxLawMonthly.com, MichaelsMetsBlog.com are just a few of the domain suggestions.

However as you can see from above there are potiental trademark issues with some of the selected names and if you say worked for Facebook I’m not sure you wouldn’t get domain suggestions that included your name and Facebook in the domain.

Here are the FAQ’s from the site:

What is The Domain Inspiration App?

It’s a free web application that lets you find available domains in .com, .net, .tv and .name based on your profile information. Simply login via facebook, or fill out your information manually and you’ll get back a list of domains you can register now.

How do you get the suggested names?

Our application uses multiple methods for suggesting names. It takes into account your profile information (such as location, career, first and last name) and matches it up with modifiers such as “family” or “fan”.

How does the favorites button work?

Once you login, you’ll see a domain suggestion that is available to register. If you click “favorite” it will be saved to your favorites folder (which you can see any time at the bottom of the page).

How do I save my favorites?

Once you’ve gathered a some favorited domains, simply expand the tray at the bottom of the app and click the “save” button. You’ll then be provided with a few different ways to save your list. It is important to note that saving a domain in the app does NOT prevent others from registering the domain, so if you find one you really like we recommend registering immediately.…

Don’t Dial A Phone Number Dial A Domain Instead

June 9th, 2013 Comments off

Dialing a phone number is so 1950′s.

Not you don’t have to dial a phone number you can just dial a domain thanks to an app named Siter.

Siter is a new concept, you make a phone call, but instead of dialing phone numbers you dial a domain or an e-mail address.

Of course as the website owner you have to download the free App and put the phone number you want your site associated with first but I did it today and it was a very quick any easy process.

Once you establish the free account people can use the App to call you by typing in the site into the app

This is how they describe it on their site:

  1. Easy to memorize

    Easy to memorize – all studies have shown it is much easier to remember names rather than numbers. Use Siter and free yourself from telephone numbers.

  2. Its forever!

    Since your domain is a unique and universal identifier, you always publish the same address. You can change your telephone number at Siter anytime.

  3. Intuitive

    Domain names are intuitive and users can call thousands of addresses.

  4. E-mail, sites and blogs

    Its easy to associate a telephone number with your site, e-mail or blog.

  5. Local identification

    You will no longer need to publish an enormous list of telephone numbers in each state or region, you can simply publish your domain.

  6. Replace your 800 number

    You wont need to publish your 800 number, you can simply publish your domain.

usage examples

1. assign a phone number to a internet address: domain, email, blog and etc.

2. assign multiple telephones to your domain

3. multiple phones with location based service
