Slow domain name sales week

The past week (to 5 October) in the domain aftermarket was the slowest we’ve seen this year writes Ron Jackson in his Domain Name Journal. While the financial crisis hitting the world may be one reason, another could have been “the T.R.A.F.F.I.C. conference in New York were spending almost $4 million in live auctions and nearly $1 million more in a Moniker online auction associated with the show.”This week there were only a dozen five-figure sales, with number one position going to bluecollar.com for $28,750 and sold by SnapNames. AfternicDLS sold the next two, carexpo.com ($27,750) and ebio.com ($24,750). There were no non-.com gTLD sales over $10,000 and only one ccTLD sale hitting the five-figure mark – brent.us just making the mark selling for $10,000.To read the full analysis by Ron Jackson in his Domain Name Journal of the week’s sales, see dnjournal.com/archive/domainsales/2008/domainsales10-14-08.htm.
