telefony.pl (Phones in Polish) Sold for 13,500 EUR

PhoneLast week was a great time for Polish domain market. Premium name telefony.pl was sold for 13,500 EUR at Sedo (it took 1st place in DNJournal’s weekly sales report among ccTLDs). In my opinion it was a great deal for the buyer and the value is already much, much higher. It is worth to mention that the same company bought lekarze.pl (doctors) on November last year for 14,000 EUR – also a great deal.  Telefony.pl will be developed into a website dedicated to mobile phones.

In another transaction tools.pl changed hands for 10,000 EUR and cash.pl for 4,000 EUR. It is interesting to see that English keywords in .pl domains sold for such a high prices. It is not usual that such names get big attention from the buyers. Usually most valuable are Polish keywords + .pl. But maybe growing number of Polish domains and less availability of interesting names will lead to higher prices also for English keyword domain names.

In two other private sales obiady.pl (dinners) changed hands for 15,000 PLN (3,500 EUR) and energiawiatrowa.pl (wind energy) for 9,000 PLN (2,100 EUR).

Poland Has More Domains Than France

Based on statistics delivered by NASK (Polish domain registry) and AFNIC (.fr registry) as from December 1st 2008 there are more .PL domain names (including .com.pl and few other extensions) than .FR domains. This gives Polish .pl ccTLD 6th place in Europe with 1.29 million domain names registered.

Top 10 ccTLDs in Europe

.de (Germany) – 12.4 mln
.co.uk (United Kingdom) – 7.2 mln

.it (Italy) – 1.61 mln
.pl (Poland) – 1.29 mln
.fr (France) – 1.28 mln
.ch (Switzerland) – 1.17 mln
.es (Spain) – 1.1 mln
.dk (Denmark) – 0.96 mln

——————————-

.eu (European Union) – 2.96 mln – this TLD should be treated more like .com or maybe .asia but not like ccTLD (Country Code Top Level Domain).

——————————-

Distribution of different extensions among .pl ccTLD

.pl – 865.000 domains – 67%
.com.pl – 244.000 domains – 19%
