Hottest Domain Trend of 2011: Non-English Domains

http://idnblog.com/2011/05/30/hottes...1-non-english/




More than 25% of the top 20 sales from this week’s DNJournal sales chart are not in English. The six non-English domains highlighted across the top 20 below include an IDN and span across many languages including French, German and Spanish.

Even more telling is that this megatrend is not only visible at the top of the market, but competition for mid-market foreign drops continues to rise as well. As an example from this week, a great IDN in a secondary extension, ゲーム.net (“Games”.net in Japanese), sold for $2,350 on Snapnames.

Even if you do not speak any other languages and do not want to spend money on a native translator, Google Translate, keyword tools, targeted droplists, and helpful forums make it easier than ever to build a powerful portfolio of generic non-English domains.

1. 33.com $358,000
2. Cupidon.com $285,250
3. XQ.com $85,000
4. Business.co $80,000
5. Bills.org $70,000
6. Humidifiers.com $50,000
7. Physical.com $42,500
8. FunChat.com $40,000
9. PlayBet.com €21,600
10. 01.org $25,000
11. Undergraduate.com $22,000
12. Darlehen.net $21,000
12. Francemutuelle.com $21,000

14. iVideos.com $16,800
15. Gaertnerei.de $16,493
15. Gärtnerei.de (IDN) $16,493

17. Cacao.org $15,000
17. IT.cc $15,000
17. Xumo.com $15,000
20. Misjuegosdebobesponja.com $14,000

Misjuegosdebobesponja.com $14,000 ???????

Damn, I used to own bobesponja.net and had even developed a site for it and then let it go, around 2007, I think.

I had a *very* nice offer this week for my DATENWIEDERHERSTELLEN.COM but turned it down.

It looks like it was a developed site sale; not just the domain.
