The non .com domain after market has been turning out some solid sales in the past few weeks.

The one character .biz domain auction on Sedo resulted in sales that turned heads on an extension that domain investors consider worthless or dying. Overstock recently acquired O.biz, and they will be selling items to small businesses on it. These high sales might cause some to rethink where they stand on the value of the .biz domains.

Top 5 Sales from .Biz Auction

1. E.biz $66,001
2. 1.biz $32,003
3. D.biz $26,110
4. M.biz $15,611
5. W.biz $13,500

.Me domains have also been making some news lately. The .Me registry announced that they will be giving away some preminium .me domains to a company that can prove they have a use for them. .Me domains have had some strong sales lately, along with a growing awareness of the .Me extension. WordPress is now using WP.me, and Bruce Marler has started a State Geo network on his .Me's.

High .Me Sales

Date.me  $70,000
Cloud.me $22,500
Teach.me $20,100
Buy.me $17,500
Tweet.me $11,000

The .com will always be king, but do these sales change anything for .Me, .Biz, and domain investors in general?

Do you believe that these sales increase the value of other .Me and .biz domains?

    You forgot to mention despicable.me, Universal Studio movie. Big Hit for .me promotion.

    Thanks for the mention Brian.

    I think the continued strong showing for .ME names shows that people are taking notice of its potential if developed properly.

    The .biz auction results were extremely interesting, was not sure what to expect from that auction but positive for those that believe in that extension and if people like overstock do a big marketing push on their name that builds awareness for other people that may consider it. Not sure I am a believer in it but it can only be positive for the .biz folks to have a good showing at the auction like that.

    Respectfully, I think you can look at .mobi auction sales history to see how those have performed historically.

    The majority of high priced .me sales have been for hacks and that’s perfectly reasonable and expected but until .me is getting comparable prices for non-hackable generics it will remain a novelty.

    Yea most of them have been hacks and also geos and first names have done well. I agree that the non hack .me prices are still lacking.

    I just think that is a lot of money for “.me” names.

    Some big .biz and .me sales. I think I will retain spirituality.me and suisun.biz a little longer. Maybe monocular.biz can be monetized.

    I would like to have gotten a hold of resu.me. That was a great domain hack. I have resum.net. That site gets traffic.

    1 character .biz sell because of companies such as Overstock paying high prices to acquire O names. Single character domain, even .biz names have many uses. Cool article.
