Turn back the clock: still some bargains in 2007, but many overpaid

Domain prices took off in 2007.

Last month, I wrote about the top domain sales of 2004. You might kick yourself if you go back and look at the list. Here are just a handful of names you could have bought in 2004 at prices well below their current values: $27,000 $27,000 $26,000 $22,250 $20,000 $20,000 $17,500 $16,000 $15,000

Some commenters pointed out that prices escalated quickly after 2004 and bargains like these were harder to come by. For comparison, let’s take a look at DNJournal’s 2007 charts.

Indeed, many domains sold for top dollar that year. The industry was flush with domain parking cash that was cycled back into domain purchases.

That year’s sales included Porn .com for $9.5 million, for $2.1 million, and for $1.8 million.

While those are all great names, there are certainly many purchases from 2007 that are underwater. Look no further than the .mobi domains that sold for six figures.

Of course, some 2007 purchases still look like bargains. Tastes in domain names have changed over the years. Singular words are popular now, as are two-and-three-letter domains.

You could have picked up for only $100,000 that year, or paid the same amount for Multiple two-letter .coms sold for $150,000 or less.

Take a walk down memory lane.
