Sedo, The worlds largest domain marketplace, has made more than a total of 37,000 transactions in 2013 with an average price of $1,893 and the median price of $577. This is a 3% increase in total transactions since last year, and also a small increase in 2012’s mean average of $1,885. The website continued to be the most popular TLD in 2013 at Sedo, with just a bit over the sales (53%) on the platform being for that domain extension. The mean average and median sales price of .com domains increased in 2013 to $2,235 and $650.
“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 now caters to 2 million clients in 150 countries, with 650 sales partners and 17 million domains for sale on its network. More than half of Sedo’s buyers in 2013 come from Sedo’s two largest markets, Germany, which is home to 21% of buyers, and the United States, which is home to 36% of buyers.
