Escrow.com Domain Investment Index: Q1, 2019 For the quarter ending 31 March 2019
The Escrow.com Domain Investment Index for Q1 2019 provides insight into the domain
name market for the 2019 December quarter as compared to previous quarters.
The latest data from Escrow.com, the world’s largest online escrow provider for internet
domain names and a range of other items, reveals a variety of factors influence the value of
domain names. In particular, the value of domain names with existing content has hit an
all-time high over the quarter.
A desirable address continues to influence the price for domains, showing parallels between
this virtual real estate and physical real estate markets. Domain names with two and three
characters remain more valuable than their longer counterparts.
Meanwhile, global demand for domain names has seen shifts. While the United States still
leads the way in total transaction value, Canada and Hong Kong have seen strong increases.
Domain name transaction value rises surges after dip
In the three months ending March 2019, the total value of domain name transactions
facilitated by Escrow.com saw an uplift from the fourth quarter. Total transaction value also
had a strong increase compared to the corresponding quarter in 2017.
As exhibited in Figure 3.0, the total value of domain names transacted on Escrow.com in the first quarter of 2019
exceeded US$85 million.
