The domain industry is booming – despite COVID-19.

In the 2nd edition of the Global Domain Report, InterNetX and Sedo draw a positive conclusion for 2020.


2020 was a turbulent year for the entire domain industry. The Global Domain Report analyzes the global market situation and is published on a yearly basis by InterNetX, a leading B2B domain registrar, and Sedo, the world's largest domain marketplace. The report paints an unambiguous picture: domains are still lucrative investments.

With the Global Domain Report 2021, two leading industry players once again provide deep insights into the status quo of the domain market and the results of their internal data analyses. InterNetX and Sedo not only collected, analyzed and processed fundamental, market-relevant data and facts. The report also presents the latest trends and developments in a compact and innovative form that serves as a basis of decision-making for experts and beginners alike.

The review of the “Domain Year 2020” highlights the fact that the market is still expanding: Both the primary and the aftermarket are benefitting from the immense global demand for domains, the COVID-19 pandemic and the associated global boost to digitization.
