Earlier this week, Sedo and InterNetX released their annual Global Domain Report that highlighted primary and aftermarket domain data.
The 69-page report, which uses data collected by the two companies and third-party sources, presented a detailed analysis of the entire industry in 2021. The report offers a view of the potential market and business opportunities and provides a look at the tendencies and trends in the years to come.
The rise in new top-level domains is particularly noteworthy. The report noted that a total of 362 different TLDs were traded at Sedo, raising its domain sales by 15% year over year. Sedo sold 227 different new TLD extensions last year, a massive jump from 125 in 2020 .xyz, which was Sedo’s top new TLD by unit volume, was a hit, along with other new TLDs such as .online, .app and .shop.
There has also been a surge in domain transactions that are taking place without any negotiation via “Buy Now.” In fact, 72% of Sedo’s sales last year were Buy Now, a significant increase from 30% in 2011.
“We celebrated another sensational year: 4 million domains registered and an increase by 15% in domain sales,” said Hakan Ali CMO and CSO at InterNetX and Sedo.com. “A success for the whole InterNetX & Sedo team. Both companies are in a better position than ever before.”
The report predicts that the increase in new gTLD sales and ccTLD sales will continue this year, with some gaining popularity via niche markets. The increase in demand also indicates a potential rise in the price of premium domains.
