New Escrow.com Report Shows Domain Sales Rebounding - Up 10% in Q1-2019 From 4Q-2018

Escrow.com's new quarterly Domain Investment Index report covering the first quarter of 2019 includes a lot of good news for domain investors. As the world's largest online escrow provider for domain names (and a wide range of other assets), Escrow.com has access to a treasure trove of domain sales information. While they do not disclose


details on individual sales (to protect the privacy of buyers and sellers who use their platform) Escrow.com does compile data on total sales transacted on their platform that provides a great deal of insight into the current health of the domain market

The new Q1-2019 report (.pdf file) disclosed that Escrow.com's total domain sales (including domains with and without content) in the most recent quarter produced over $85 million in sales. That is a 10.4% jump over the $77 million recorded in the previous quarter as well a solid increase year over year. Escrow.com also reported their sales of developed websites reached an all time high as domains with content hit $15.2 million in Q1-2019. In terms of median prices, Escrow.com said their median domain name sale held steady at $2,500 while their median developed website sale price rose to $9,800.

Escrow.com also broke out sales results geographically, noting, " the United States still leads the way in total transaction value but Canada was among the biggest gainers. In the U.S. total domain sales (with and without content) jumped from $55.6 million in 4Q-2018 to $62 million in 1Q-2019 - an 11.5% increase. That is particularly impressive because the 4th quarter has historically been a strong one for domain sales. Canada moved past the United Kingdom into the #2 slot with $9.16 million vs. the UK's $8.58 million). Meanwhile, the China boom continue to recede. After hitting a high point of $18.4 million in Q2-2018 China sales were down to $5.8 million in Q1-2019.
