Friday, August 28, 2015 Sells and August 26 .CA TBR Results

In the August 26 .ca TBR drop there were a total of 91 .ca domains taken.  The last several TBR's have each seen over 100 domains grabbed, so this was a lighter TBR than usual.

Two .ca domain sales were reported in the latest weekly domain sales report.  Those domains were:  -  $1,950  -  sold at Sedo  -  $1,000  -  sold at Sedo already has a web page up using WordPress, billing themselves as "Canada's premier guide to top crowdfunding campaigns".  Looks like there's still some more work to do on the website.

The sale I also mentioned in last week's TBR news, which you can read here.

Some of the top domains in this week's drop were:

The full list of domains caught in the August 26 TBR drop is below.  I've bolded some of the better quality or more interesting names on the list.  Thanks to Sibername for providing this week's data.

Wednesday, August 19, 2015 My Top Pick in August 12 .CA TBR Drop Results

It's a week late, but here are the August 12 .ca TBR drop results.  A total of 133 domains were caught last week.  There were some nice domains available in this drop, but not many of them.

I saw at least one reported .ca domain sale in the past week, but I'll save it for today's TBR drop results which I'll put out shortly.  The sale was for low $xxxx and was completed at Sedo.

Some of the top domains in the drop list below were:

The full list of domains caught in the August 12 TBR drop is below.  I've bolded some of the better quality and more interesting names on the list.  Thanks to Sibername for providing this week's data.

Friday, August 7, 2015 Sells for $10,000 and August 5 .CA TBR Drop Results

There were 102 .ca domains caught in this week's TBR drop.  Not a great week for good one or two word generics, just a few nice names on the list from what I saw.

As for .ca domain sales, I did see this one through Godaddy:  -  $10,000 USD -   sold at Godaddy auctions was the only .ca domain sale I saw reported in the last week (assuming the auction bidder pays).  It sold at Godaddy in auction with only one bid.  There is a blog on the domain on the topic of (what else) Style, in relation to lifestyle, clothes, cars, hair, wedding, etc., basically popular lifestyle subjects.  I don't know if the blog was factored into the price of the domain or not.  Just as a one-word .ca domain sale, the $10,000 price wouldn't be out of the norm.

Some of the better .ca's that dropped this week were:

Like I mentioned above, it wasn't one of the greatest TBR's that will be remembered!

The full list of domains caught in the August 5 TBR drop is below.  I've bolded some of the better quality and more interesting names on the list.  Thanks to Sibername for providing this week's data.

Are and Domains the Next to Rise?

Are and type domains the next to rise in value?

2015 has seen a big jump in prices and demand, up through to even domains, with much of the action coming from China.  Numbers are universal and so is .com, and numbers also have a lot of meaning to many Chinese people.  8 is lucky, 4 is unlucky, some combinations of numbers have more meaning that others, and in domaining circles articles are being written on the interpretation of numbers to different cultures, so that domainers can have a better understanding of what could be in demand.

The .co extension is very similar to .com, and is easier to type.  The .cc extension has been gaining some ground in China, and numeric .cc domains already have some demand from what I've seen in domain auctions.  If there was some promotion by the dotCO Registry in China, and with the prices of numeric .com's so high, it's not hard to imagine that numeric .co's could start to gain popularity in China simply due to the country's large internet population and the scarcity and pricing of numeric .com's.  The recent sale of for $180,000 is on the extreme end, but regularly sell for five figures now.

When I started looking into numeric .co earlier this year, a random check of domains showed many resolving or pointing to Asian webpages.  So to some extent the use of numeric .co's is already being adopted.  All are registered, but not all are taken, you can still hand reg some.  I haven't checked to see how many are available out of the 10,000 possible combinations, but just about all with triple (e.g.: 555, 777) combinations in them are gone, and the same with starting or ending double 55 and 88, and other popular patterns.  I made a list a while back of combinations I liked, and when I check it from time to time there are always a few gone.

Now this isn't an article saying that .com will be replaced, it's just a supply and demand argument, and 1,000's and 10,000's really isn't that much in a 6 billion world.  And if your first choice is a numeric .com but it's taken or too pricey, the .co is such a similar extension it could therefore get some traction.  I wouldn't dabble in's because 100,000 combinations is a lot, and shorter is better, especially when there are's still available to be had.

I'm not recommending anyone go out and sell the farm to get into domains, this is just one opinion of something that may be on the horizon (or not).  Even if numeric .co's can reach 5 or 10% of their .com counterparts, that would be a great return. 

About 7 or 8 years ago you could still hand reg tons of domains, or in more recent years get them in domain forums for $10 to $20 each.  I remember the countdown going on until they were all taken.  Also in recent years you could have gotten the crappy letter's for dollars each in forums.  Now these types of domains sell for many hundreds of dollars or more, and no one really saw it coming.  Loading up on the above types of domains would have been easy and cheap in the last 5 years, and resulted in impressive gains.

Now what will be the next trend in the domaining world that we don't see coming?
