iPhone App Puts Historical Domain Sales Information at Your Fingertips

On the day that I began my trip to Spain to cover last month's Domaining Europe 2012 conference in Valencia, Simon Johnson sent me an email to let me know about a new iPhone app that Kikabink International Pty Ltd. (a Melbourne, Australia based company that Johnson co-founded) had just released. With the trip to Europe and the game of catch up required after I got back I just now had a chance to download the free app that Simon wrote about. 

It is definitely a useful tool that you are going to want to add to your smartphone arsenal. The app provides access to more than 72,000 historical domain and website sales (dating back more than 10 years), enabling you to review sales prices and use that information to help value other domain names that are similar. Johnson said the app, simply called Domain Sales, is the first one in the world to provide sales data on a wide range of TLDs including mainstays .com, .org and .net as well as ccTLDs like .de, .co.ukcom.au, .ca and .us to name just a few. You can filter for specific TLDs, domain age or length and also set exclusions. 

Johnson noted, "Business owners often have difficulty finding domain names, as many of them are already registered. As such they have to buy domains on the aftermarket. The issue then becomes, how much should they pay? The Domain Sales app solves that problem by providing comparable sales. The real-estate industry uses comparable sales to value property and we believe Internet real-estate is no different."

Johnson added, "The app provides sales from major aftermarkets, auctions and private sales and users can also get real-time reports on what has just been sold, where and for how much. We're really proud of what the Domain Sales App can do. It really levels the playing field. Now anyone can get the facts and discover how much their domain or website might be worth." 

You can download the app from Apple's

You can also set filters to refine results.

iTunes® App Store or by visiting http://www.DomainSalesApp.com. To get my copy I just typed "Domain Sales" in the App Store search box on my iPhone and it came right up. Add the fact that there is no charge for an app that many would gladly pay for and it is obvious this is an app that anyone interested in domains should have on their phone.
