The domain names after market is heating up again as domains sold widely.

International Domain NamesImage by vaXzine via FlickrThe after market in internet domain names has always been very active since the advent of the dns system (circa 1994) In the early days, headline grabbing sales included Business.com at $7M and Sex.com at $10M as well as many many more.

In those early days the extensions that sold mostly were, in order, .com, .net and .org.  Of course, if you had the forsight to see this markets potential in its infancy, you might have been able to register dynamic words in these extensions such as Casino.com, work.com, Funds.com (recently sold for $10M) etc, and you would have made a small fortune, as you can tell from some of these valuations. Country code domains with dynamic words also sold very well, albiet, at lesser valuations.  However, country code valuations have come a long way, and so has the domain after market in general.

Many current domain investors are still registering good domains, for as little as $9.99 at some registrars, and sell them in the hundreds of dollars.  The bulk of the market has gone in this direction however, depending on the domains, many sell in the thousands, tens of thousands and still some, in the millions.

Here is a recent top 100 list of domains sold this year (2010), their prices, and which brokers did the selling, from the list at the domain name journal (DNJournal.com) which is a must site for todays domain investors
