Sedo announced yesterday the results of its annual
Domain Market Study (PDF). In 2008, top selling domains yielded $77
million in revenue - an 8% sales increase over the $72 million
total from 2007.
Sedo's list of highest selling domains in 2008 includes Kredit.de for
$1,176,672, Invest.com for $1,015,000, Printer.com for $650,000, Villas.com for
$478,149, Tell.com for $400,000, Lowfare.com for $365,000, Banners.com for
$360,000, 770.com for $350,000, SC.com for $300,000 and Triplecreditreport.com
The study showed that .com remained the most wanted extension, drawing in 76
percent of all sales. In second place was .net at 9%, and .info secured
third place with 7% of sales. These results remained consistent with
the generic top-level domain shares in 2007. Overall, every worldwide TLD except
.biz saw an increase in the number of domains sold in 2008.
