The after-market for PH domains is growing! Earlier this month, the domain oom.ph was sold to a foreign client for a whopping P700,000.00!
The sale price dwarfs the amount paid for weather.com.ph, which last year sold for P120,000.00 to a Philippine buyer. Both domains were sold as is – no content, Ad Sense or income generating accounts included. Generally, domains that have content and a proven history of visitor traffic sell for much more.
This is proof of incredible growth in the marketability of PH domains, and their value continues to rise as the number of people who realize their worth increases.
We all know the right domain name can mean the difference between a one-time visitor or a regular visitor, between obtaining a new customer or losing one – and that it's easier to find the domain that fits your brand in PH. More than anything else, the right domain name gives businesses their own mark on the world wide web. And now more and more people are recognizing the benefits of owning a PH domain over an ordinary .com domain.
So what do you get from a PH domain aside from preservation and memorability of your brand, local search engine prioritization and a wider range of domain name choices? A great investment!
