Prices for domains down, sales volume up in October, November

During October and November, prices for domain names cooled off, as the newest updates from Internet Domain Name Index IDNX show: Overall, prices for domains fell by 3.6 percent since September. This below-par investment performance of domains is similar to the slightly negative returns on IT stocks in the last few months.

But there is good news as well: Sales volume went up by about 30 percent in the same time period, showing that demand for domains remains strong.  Domain investors apparently used the opportunity to realize some of the substantial value gains that domains have enjoyed in the last 2 years.
