The consensus on Sedo seems to be that 2 letter .ca domain names are valued at 200k


That works out to about 250k CAD

Oh really?

Then you should buy ym.ca for $3,300?

I did not say I agreed, but there seems to be a contagion on sedo. :eek:


That said I know of one recently that sold in the sedo price range, I think that is why everyone caught the bug *ROFL*

I think you can choose to price names at whatever price you want. That’s the great thing about domains. I can assure you though the higher the names are priced the less likely you will sell any in your lifetime. It’s easy to do if you have 100 names. Try doing it with 10000 names and you quickly realize it’s not possible.

There are great names on Sedo that are fairly priced yet no one is buying them...does it make you wonder why?

A lot of the domains on sedo are no longer owned by the people listing them, I can name you a few I own that are listed there quite cheap. From what I can see I would say at least 1/3 of the listings are outdated.

I just may end up buying this one if nobody else does.

Or [notify]AdamDicker[/notify] I think he would snap it up.

It depends on the letters and how long you want to wait, but some of the recent LL.ca sales I've seen from major domain venues are in the 4-figure range. One I remember very distinctly was SI.ca, which sold for $4,999 USD, as well as UP.ca for a little over $5K USD. I think KQ.ca sold for under $1K.

Private and more esoteric venues move into the 5-figure range, like DT.ca and AR.ca, but both are premium letter combos and the seller likely didn't need cash anytime soon.

Selling for 6-figures is very rare, but it does happen, and is likely the result of a long-term negotiation over several years. That kind of major transaction doesn't "just happen" and I think a lot of these LL listings above are simply lottery tickets.

OK well I am referring to those where I go to the website and it’s forwarding to sedo with a BIN. I have to assume those are correct.

I agree there are domains listed there that are not being removed. I would contact sedo about those domains if you own them. It doesn’t look good.

I paid 15k for dn.ca and I consider that a bargain, I would have paid up to 25k for that one had gone to a bidding war.

Does anyone remember that CN.ca went for at TBR auction?

And I just searched at NameBio and the most recent LL.ca sale was CD.ca for $2,667 USD (NameJet) which looks like a steal.

You are the end user. If you’re a domainer you can’t pay those prices and expect to leave room to make money.

There’s a sale that makes no sense. I offered 5K to a broker in 2016 for that name and in 2019 it sold for less. Another baffling sale....

Actually, both SI.ca (consulting) and UP.ca (weed) were end user sales, so you an also get some deals there.

We are not all in the same situation. We all value domains differently. I can’t stop anyone from selling their domains too cheap. These sales that are being reported are concerning for the .CA market. Sometimes no reported sales are better than the ones that we see.

CD.ca was owned by Emall and he put it to auction for Namescon Europe in June 2019. Things obviously didn't go as planned and I doubt he was happy about it.

Thanks, didn’t know the specifics. Usually you make an offer and forget about it when you don’t receive a reply.

When I purchased dn.ca I was not intending it to be an end user site. I purchased it as an investment thinking dn had potential in the domaining industry. At that time dnc.ca was still running strong so that was not on my radar.

I decided to launch dn.ca well after, it was mainly because we only had one topic on namepros and they are way too trigger happy to delete comments and stifle private messages.

I understand, I was referring to you as the end user based on the amount paid. This is all subjective but I don’t buy a domain that I can’t sell for 10x what I paid at the very least.

I’m not purchasing domains for 20k to sell for 30k or 40k. DN.com sold for $560,000. So I see the top end of DN ca at $60K. I could be wrong who knows. That’s how I view it. Now that it’s developed maybe that will change in the future.
