Andrew Allemann & Ron Jackson Get Together for a Deep Dive Into the Past Year's Domain Sales Boom 

Last July DomainNameWire's Andrew Allemann had me join him on his popular  DNW Podcast to review how domain sales were going at the mid-point of the 2021 sales season. While things were looking very good at that time, the best was yet to come. The year closed with two explosive quarters that wound up being, by many metrics, a record breaking year for the domain aftermarket.

We just got back together for DNW Podcast (#373) to take an in-depth look at 2021's Top 100 Sales Charts and how they compared to previous years. We also took a close look at how the 14 domains that sold for seven figures in 2021 are being used now. If you want a clear example of how far the 2021 market leaped over the previous year, consider that there were only two publicly-reported seven-figure sales in 2020.

Of course, we can't live in the past and it's 2022 now. So, we also shared some thoughts on what the new year may hold for the market, looking at reasons why the boom could continue and threats that could upset the apple cart.
