Domain marketplace Sedo has released the results of its 2013 domain name market study.
Sedo processed more than 37,000 transactions last year with a mean average price of $1,893 and a median price of $577. The .com remained the most popular TLD in 2013 at Sedo, with just over half of all sales (53 percent) on the platform being for that domain extension. The mean average and median sales prices of .com domains increased during 2013 to $2,235 ($2,148 in 2012) and $650 ($642 in 2012) respectively.
“The market reaction so far to the release of new gTLDs has been tremendous – and with 167 different TLDs traded on Sedo last year, we are well-prepared to help our users take full advantage,” said Tobias Flaitz, Sedo’s CEO. “Along with the increase in new domains comes an increased opportunity for businesses to locate and own the memorable domain name they need to be successful. With new gTLDs, the opportunities are endless – and we are looking forward to seeing just how they are used throughout 2014.”
Sedo currently boasts 2 million clients in 150 countries, 650 sales partners and 17 million domains for sale on its network.
