Comprehensive 2022 Global Domain Report from InterNetX/Sedo Leaves No Stone Unturned

InterNetX and Sedo have teamed up to produce an extraordinarily comprehensive 65-page report on the current state of the global domain industry that surpasses anything I've ever seen in an annual report (and it comes free of charge). They have literally left no domain stone unturned in analyzing results from every aspect of the business over the past 12 months, as well as what to expect in the months ahead.


The report breaks down the legacy TLDs (.com, .net and .org), ccTLDs, new gTLDs, geo TLDs and City TLDs. It dives into Crypto and NFT related domains, the booming aftermarket, registrar and registry results, plus special topics like blockchain, the Brexit effect on domains and more. The information is all presented in an attractive, easily accessible chart-rich layout and is so voluminous you have to marvel at how much work had to go into getting it all done.


Hakan Ali, CMO & CSO at InterNetX & Sedo, noted "2021 was a sensational year with 4 million domains registered and an increase of 15% in domain sales. While the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic presented the global economy and people worldwide with several challenges, the domain industry continued to move forward without slowing down, benefiting from the further push for digitalization, embracing new trends and opening doors to new applications."


Thomas Mörz, CEO at InterNetX, added, “2021 was another outstanding year for the domain industry. Our premium and market sales skyrocketed by 173%. The ccTLD .de, one of the most successful domain extensions worldwide, reached the milestone of 17 million registered domains. Meanwhile domain prices in the aftermarket grew exponentially. The report includes the chapter Central Facts & Figures, which takes a look at the key data and facts across all TLDs, while also laying the foundation for a deep dive into the industry in the Deep Insights chapter. We also take a look at the aftermarket, with Michael Robrock, CEO at Sedo.com, noting “the greater demand for domains has led to an increase in domain prices, especially for premium domains."

The report's Focus Topics takes a closer look at  he rise of blockchain, NFTs and the metaverse, a development that has generated additional interest in domains as digital assets. To see all of the ground that this publication covers, you will want to get a full copy of your own. Kudos to the InterNetX and Sedo teams for a tremendous job done in assembling, analyzing and sharing this information.
