NEW YORK, NY – According to NameBio, there were just 60 reported .us domain sales so far this year. The highest reported sales were Crowe.us for $9,500.00 with the second highest name as BuyUSA.us for $3,200.00.
I’m amazed that these .us domain names are doing so poorly. There was some discussion towards the end of last year and the beginning on this one on potential changes coming for .us that I guessed would have brightened its future some, but it does not look like much stock was put into those changes. Being in America, I sort of like the .us domain, naturally.
Below are the top .us domain name sales of this year based on data from NameBio. There was only 60 of them to show and a whopping 42 of them (well more than half) took place on domain sales venue GoDaddy; seems like Godaddy is a great place to sell them off if you have some to move, or are looking to buy. It also does not look like either transactions (buy or sell) will break the bank as the entire total of all 60 reported sales was $31,606.00 ‘US’ total!
If you have heard anything on the recommendations to Neustar to release one and two character .us domain names or the updates on the privacy services being offered feel free to update everyone in the comments below.
