March 2023 Monthly UK Domain Sales Report

Hello, and welcome to the March 2023 edition of the UK domain name sales report!

For those of you that haven’t been here before, every month I give an overview of all the interesting bits from publicly reported UK domain name sales.

You can read all previous UK domain name sales reports, which are powered by sales data collated from Domain Sales History.

If you have sold any UK domain names or are aware of any sales that do not exist in the database, please do get in touch and let me know.

Have you read last months sales report?

If you haven't done so already, I recommend reading the February 2023 Monthly Sales Report as we compare sales data frequently throughout this report.

With that shameful self-promotion out of the way, let's move on to this months sales report!

March 2023 UK domain sales overview

Lets have a very brief overview of the UK domain market over the last month...

The following table shows a breakdown of key data comparing this months sales data against last month.

Month Total Sales .uk .co.uk .org.uk LLL Total Value
March 220 27 186 7 20 ¤104,400
February 161 37 116 8 28 £47,248

Total Sales Revenue

There were 220 reported domain sales this month, generating a total revenue of ¤104,400.

The total revenue of the top 10 sales this month was £57,890 (+128%)

Domain sales grouped by extension

Lets take a look at how many domains were sold per extension in March 2023.

The best way of achieving that is to group the sales by extension, then sort them into descending order, which gives us:

  • 186 .co.uk (+70)
  • 27 .uk (-10)
  • 7 .org.uk (-1)

Coming out on top this month is the .co.uk extension with 186 sales.

LLL domain sales

There were 20x LLL's sold this month, which is -29% on last months tally of 28.

Breaking LLL sales down by extension gives us 7x .uk, 13x .co.uk.

cpi.uk was the top selling LLL this month, with a price of £150 sold via Domainlore.

For those of you that don't know, LLL means a three letter domain. If it contains a number (or hyphen) it does not qualify as an LLL.

What was the longest domain that sold in March 2023?

For some reason, I like to keep an eye on what the longest domain is each month.

This month it was prescriptionchargescoalition.org.uk with 28 characters, selling for £55 via Flip.

Top Performing Sales Platforms for March 2023

I like to believe that “Top Performing” is a relative phrase. Some sales platforms have been around longer and have earned a loyal customer base. Other sales platforms (like Sedo) sell a broad range of domain extensions and naturally receive a larger viewership, meaning more potential buyers which can inflate the eventual sale price.

You also need to remember that Sedo charges 15% sales commission (at time of writing) for marketplace domains. The buyer is also expected to pay a 3% handling fee for any domain purchases over 500 USD / GBP / EUR when using Alipay, PayPal, and Credit Card.

(The below table is ordered alphabetically as that seems the most sensible).

Platform Sales Revenue Avg. Sale Price
Afternic.com 1 $900 $900
Dan.com 1 £3,500 £3,500
Domainlore 185 £82,423 £445
Flip 30 £6,277 £209
Private Sale 1 £200 £200
Sedo 2 £11,100 £5,550
