.ORG Emerges as Most Valuable Domain in Q1 2010

It's no secret that .ORG's inherent value also carries over to the domain name holders. Our brand research shows that and now, so does the research in the secondary market.

According to Sedo's Domain Market Report, just published yesterday, the .ORG extension stands as the most valuable domain in terms of average sale price and secondary market value. In Q1 2010, .ORG witnessed an average sales price increase of $1,291 for a total of $3,376. That's roughly 42% more than .com and 187% more than .net — both of whom experienced a decrease in average sale price since Q4 2009.

Earlier this year, poker.org sold for a record-breaking $1M, marking the highest .ORG secondary market sale to date. The community forecasted that this would be a "Game Changer” for the .ORG extension the secondary market, with MHB going so far as to say that the sale would "affect the value of bang on, category killer .org." Well, the results are in and the forecast was correct! .ORG continues to be the domain of choice for building online communities, invest in a .ORG domain name to distinguish yourself.
