Two-word Domains

Updated: Mar 6

When checking domain prices published by DNJournal and others, a pattern often repeats itself.

Way on top, we have one or more sales of .com domains above $100,000, followed by many secondary transactions below $100,000.

This week's (March 2018) listings caught my attention in the domain price bracket for two-word domains.

The highest price paid, as reported, is a two-word domain, CrosswordPuzzles.com, which is sold for USD 269,980.

What's impressive is that many other two-word domains have changed hands in the past for above USD 10,000.

SmartWatches.com - $55,000

Careeropportunities.com - $30,000

Europewatch.com - $25,000

Turkeyrealestate.com - $20,647 (a three-word domain)

Cleaningproducts.com - $15,000

Giftformom.com -$15,000 (a three-word domain)

Many additional two-word domains were sold for USD 10,000 or above among them, such names as hurricanedamage.com, comfybed.com, and woohoogames.com.

  • While some domains went back into the for-sale section of domain-brokers, others have thrived and are still active website addresses even many years later.

I couldn't find any hyphenated names this time, but a few with numbers being part of the URL.

om2.com - $27,002

10yoni5nnnn.com - $24,000

c7.com - $14,750

kk5.com - $14,750

mp3cutter.com - $12,500

6hg.com - $10,000

Surprisingly at the bottom of the Non .com gTLDs Top 20 Sales Chart, there is a .tel, namely a.tel, sold for $5,500.

Price variation for similar domains is exemplified in two names sold, GroceryBox.com - $37,700 and MeatBox.com $14,985.

Reported and confirmed domain sales are a momentary indication of market condition and value and make it easier to judge whether a requested price might be too high or an offer too low.

The above might make it easier to put a price ticket on a domain and serve as a realization of where the domain market is standing today.
