5 Digit Domains Stop Dropping

Or at least are dropping much less frequently.

Here is the updated graph showing average daily drops during the past 7 months (with complete numbers for December now).

Online Graphing
Graph maker
Average daily drops plummeted in December to 35.8 per day.  We were used to seeing regular days with 50-60 NNNNN.com's dropping each day, and now those days are exceedingly rare.   Interestingly, the number of NNNNN.com's dropping appears to now be consistently lower than or equal to the daily drops of LLLL.com's (four letter domains).  Between now and January 1st, for example, 170 five digit domains will drop, while 177 four letter domains will drop.

More numerics auction results from 4.cn

Here are some additional auction results from 4.cn from the last couple weeks.   In this batch, a four digit domain, 6666.com, actually captured first prize, going for nearly $100,000, more than several three digit domains that went for around $20,000-$30,000.

Closer Look at NNNN.com Prices

I've assembled a database of nearly 300 NNNN.com sales and thought it would be interesting to look at the numbers in more detail, by year and starting number, to get a basic sense of how starting number impacts price and how this has changed.  I grouped domains into two categories (sales in 2009 and earlier, and sales in 2010 and 2011).

Starting with a "0". 
< 2010 Sales (14): Median Sale Price: $510.  Average Sale Price: $619.
2010+ Sales (7): Median Sale Price: $950.  Average Sale Price: $1,025.

Starting with a "1"
< 2010 Sales (11): Median Sale Price: $1,037.  Average Sale Price: $1,372.
2010+ Sales (7): Median Sale Price: $2,078.  Average Sale Price: $3,377.

Starting with a "2"
< 2010 Sales (18): Median Sale Price: $508.  Average Sale Price: $1,244.
2010+ Sales (21): Median Sale Price: $1,500.  Average Sale Price: $2,607.

NNNNN's Buyout Sticking, Daily Drops Falling

NNNNN.com's have been all registered for a couple months now (since the beginning of October).  The drops get picked up regularly, and the number of daily drops has fallen since the buyout.

In the third quarter of 2011, there were 54.8 drops per day on average.  In the fourth quarter so far, there have been 46.2 drops per day (and only 40.1 so far in December).

Here is a graph showing the daily drops by month:

Not surprisingly, the fall in daily drops coincided with the buyout.  As demand is increasing for numeric domains, supply is tightening, and that makes holders more likely to renew their domains. 

The average number of daily drops is nearing the raw number of LLLL.com's that drop on a daily basis.

Several Months of 4.cn Auction Results

Been a little lazy providing sales results from 4.cn over the past couple months so here is a huge report of auction results dating back to late September, 2011.  As we have seen in prior months, five and six digit domains are increasingly showing up in the higher dollar sales figures.  The auction results are organized in descending order of final price, although I don't check if reserve was met, only what the final bid was.

Notable sales include 10000.com.cn for $10,200, 98888.com for $4,575, 66668.com for $3,283, 10050.cn for $2,460, and 777888.com for $1,620.  The high prices for the five digit .cn's are interesting, and warrant a check into what percentage of these domains are registered.
