Name Vs. Name: eCommerce.co and RealEstate.asia Sold for About the Same Price - Which One Was the Better Buy & Why?

16 years ago we started our weekly domain sales reports (that come out every Wednesday evening) as an educational tool. Showing the exact prices paid for specific domain names each week gives all of us a chance to learn more about domain values, gain insight into the latest trends (what's hot and what's not) and have access to a large pool of comparable sales that can be pointed to when buyers question domain valuations.

As sales data comes in each week I often notice very different kinds of domains selling for about the same (or exactly the same) price and thought this might present another interesting educational opportunity. In this case, seeing how our reader's currently value various kinds of domains by running a periodic Name Vs. Name poll and discussion in which two similarly priced but otherwise different kinds of domains are matched against one another. We ran a couple of these contests last month (links to those are in the table at the end of this post) and the response was good, so let's return to the battle field for round three!

This time around we are going to pit a ccTLD again a non .com gTLD. Both have great keywords and sold for about the same price. As you may have seen in last week's domain sales report those two - eCommerce.co and RealEstate.asia - earned places on our weekly all extension Top 20 Sales Chart with eCommerce.co coming in at $16,650 and RealEstate.asia close behind at $16,095.co is officially the country code for Colombia but it was re-purposed several years ago to mean "company" and has had success with that re-branding (so much so that Neustar swooped in and bought the .co registry for $109 million in 2014). .Asia was launched in 2008 as a sponsored gTLD that serves as the regional domain extension for Asia and the Pacific. Now that we've introduced the opponents - let's get ready to rumble! The poll will remain open for 5 days (closing on Sunday afternoon, May 5, 2019. We will share the final results with you in our next Name vs. Name battle (or you can return to this page any tim after the voting ends and click the poll View button to see the winner). So, which one - eCommerce.co or RealEstate.asia - was the better buy and, if you care to comment, why? (the View button will let you see poll numbers and comments):
