In recent months the number of reported .ca sales have been very few, at least in $1,000 plus range. However, there are now a few sales worth mentioning.
Slots.ca - $206,906 (sold through Moniker private transaction)
LogoDesign.ca - $4,500 (sold at Sedo)
Oil.ca - $21,375 (sold at MyID.ca TBR auction)
Of interest to .ca owners is that the Slots.ca sale was the highest priced domain sale in any extension for the last two weeks according to the DNJournal sales report. The next highest sale was a two letter .com, SZ.com, for $125,000.
You can see the sales report here:
Oil.ca was a domain that the previous owner dropped or didn't renew 30 days ago. It went into the To Be Released (TBR) queu and was caught on Wednesday by MyID.ca. MyID promptly started an auction for the domain and got a healthy price for it.
The summer months are generally quiet for domain sales, but maybe we're starting to see more action in the .ca market. The overall domain market doesn't seem to have slowed down this year, probably because the internet is one area of the economy that is still growing. Smartphones, notebook computers and the iPad allow people to be online these days as much as they want.
