GoDaddy Resumes Releasing Their Top Domain Sales - $400,000 Sale of Ingles.com Tops 1st List

When GoDaddy was a private company, they used to release a list of their top aftermarket domain sales each month. That stopped in 2015 when they entered a required quiet period before they went public with a nine-figure IPO. Unfortunately, after the quiet


period ended, GoDaddy did not resume releasing their top sales. This past summer the company delighted domain investors by announcing they would start sharing their top sales data again in October. 

Well, here we are and true to their word GoDaddy has just released a list of their top 20 domain sales for the month of June (these includes sales made on GoDaddy's Afternic and Uniregistry platforms as well as their home site). Presumably, we will now see a list each month, likely dating back four months like this one - a window that allows time for their high dollar transactions to close and get the domains transferred. This welcome move brings a lot more transparency to the domain aftermarket and is very important to the industry as a whole as it adds data that shows just how valuable top quality domains can be. 

The new list is topped by a half dozen six-figure sales, led by Ingles.com at $400,000 - a deal that will rank as the 4th biggest domain sale reported so far this year when we release our updated YTD Top 100 Chart Wednesday evening. Here is the complete GoDaddy list:

ingles.com $400,000
lendable.com $125,000
vaninsurance.co.uk $106,769
wbs.com $115,000
fivenines.com $100,000
vaninsurance.com $100,000
hfm.com $90,000
kalibari.com $80,000
insurancecapital.com $59,995
makey.com $53,000
autofun.com $50,000
appify.com $50,000
skrt.com $50,000
nopain.com $47,500
mygarden.com $40,000
hifashion.com $39,999
protek.com $39,982
variable.com $36,000
acaglobal.com $35,420
booktopia.com $35,000

We will be listing all of these sales and adding those that qualify for the top sales charts in our next bi-weekly domain sales report that comes out tomorrow evening (Wednesday, October 14).
