Domain Holdings had a strong Q4 2015. The results of our continuing efforts to develop a strong foundation for the Domain Holdings and Flippa families in Q3 have continued to gain momentum into Q4, resulting in higher sales and more robust numbers than Q3 and Q2. As always, we will continue to develop ourselves internally to ensure continued growth and client satisfaction.
Q4 Highlights and Sales Summary Include:
- Total Sales: $6,358,902
- Average Weekly Sales: $489,146
- Average Sales Price (ASP): $105,982
Sales Summary Q3 vs Q4:
Domain Holdings experienced growth across the board for Q4 2015. Our experienced brokerage team generated $1.82M more (40% increase) in sales in Q4 than in Q3. Our overall average sales price is up from $57,424 to $105,982, and our average sales per week increased by 40% from Q3 to Q4, surpassing $485,000.
The overall average sales price (ASP) for domains in Q4 was $105,982, an increase of 84% from Q3. Although ASP fluctuates from quarter to quarter, Domain Holdings has seen continued growth in the overall ASP throughout the fiscal year, making Q4 among our highest numbers in the last eight quarters.
In Q4, The United States and China continue to be the two largest markets for Domain Holdings, accounting for 86% of total sales. Sales to the Chinese market increased from Q3, due their interest in domain names of up to 4L or 3N.
Buyers by Extension
The .com domain continues to remain the market leader, accounting for 86% of our sales in Q4. However, interest in gTLDs continue to grow and constitute a larger part of our business. Certain gTLDs, such as .io are especially in demand, as they are very popular in the tech and startup sectors.
Overall, Q4 was a success and an amazing end to a big year. Flippa’s acquisition of Domain Holdings has allowed us to build a solid foundation for future growth. We have increased our sales through our continued dedication to our existing clients (buy requests), secured more inventory, generated new relationships, matured pipelines, and launching new outbound marketing campaigns. In addition, Domain Holdings has expanded our team in size, function and experience in 2015. Our increased head count has allowed us to expand our service offerings, helping us to fulfill the needs of our existing clients, as well as the demands of a constantly growing client base.
