Archive of Final Annual Charts:

Special Entry: On November 1, 2012 Marchex, a public company with a portfolio of hundreds of thousands of domains, for the first time released a list of the company's Top 500 sales over the preceding four years. Marchex did not release the dates on which these sales were made, so we cannot assign them to any of the specific annual Top 100 charts linked to below. So instead we are including a link to the complete list of the Marchex sales (ranging from just under $10,000 to  $700,000) here for your reference. The release of this information is a valuable addition to the body of sales information we have compiled over the past decade - all of which is meant to serve as an educational tool that gives our readers information on what price tens of thousands of specific domains have sold since we started tracking the aftermarket in 2003. We believe that the majority of domain sales are never publicly reported, but this data on those that were revealed can be very helpful in understanding domain values and sales trends over a long period of time.

A list of the top 500 Marchex domain sales (between 2008-2012) that was released by the company on November 1, 2012 (this is a .pdf file).

Editor's Note: In July 2016 Uniregistry.com sent us a list of thousands of previously unreported sales, totaling approximately $42 million that they made between February 2015 and June 2016. We added all of the 2016 sales from that list to our weekly reports in July 2016. Since the 2015 sales were from a previous year (and all of our weekly sales reports for that year had been completed), we added the top Uniregistry sales that qualified for our 2015 Top 100 Reported Sales chart (22 domains added, all in six figures. Those are shown on the chart with the date 12/31/15 as they came in after the last day of the year). 

We placed all of the other 2015 sales they reported to us (along with the ones that were added to the 2015 YTD Top 100) in this special Excel document (2,466 domains in all, ranging in price from $575,000 down to $1,000, which is the minimum number we track). These sales were not included in our 2015 weekly reports but we wanted to get them on the record because the list includes many significant sales and also provides a clearer picture of the strength of the aftermarket in that year.
