In 2015 Domain Name Sales are still a lucrative business 20 years later

Are you one of the naysayers that insist that internet domain names are so "yesteryear" in value?

Then maybe you should think again about this dynamic market and the businesses that buy and sell lucrative web domains.   Domain Names registered in the early years (late 90's) especially those of the dom com (.com) domain variety, are still commanding multi-million dollar prices as evidenced here with the Domain Name Journal's 2015 "year to date" list of domain sales and prices.

While it is true that many lesser domains (most unrecognizable in phraseology) are worthless, or sell for $50-100 dollars, you should keep in mind it only costs $10 at most registrars to register a new name, and your imagination is the only limit as to what names you register.


Names listed here were sold by brokers like Afternic, Sedo, Godaddy, DomainNameSales and others who act as independant third parties providing a service to buyers ad sellers in this lucrative trade.

Remember, this list is only for the first 6 months of 2015.  There will, no doubt, be many other eye popping sales of domain names in the latter half of 2015.
