Publicly Available Premium Domain Name Sales

Last updated: July 13, 2021

The 50 past sales below are cash only sales for domain names without content, and not business/website deals. Keep in mind that 7, 8 and even 9 figure sales have never been reported to the public before due to NDA’s. And many domain names are being leased/rented on a monthly basis with equity deals and not sold. Rent-to-own domains are paid off in monthly terms on the long run and not reported publicly. This list of past sales gives you an idea of the worth of premium domain names. They’re valuable pieces of intellectual property that companies use as their corporate identity.

Lots of these sales are old, but premium domains will only increase in value as the century progresses, see a comprehensive guide at DomainValue.com. Premium domain names may never be available again on the aftermarket, making them even more scarce. Domains are one of the greatest investment vehicles in the history of man kind. Also notice that 99% of all these past sales are for the .COM extension, which is KING!
