Canadian City Domain Sells for $75,000 While the Name of an Atlanta Neighborhood is Set to Close at $250,000

Geo domains took the spotlight this week with Penticton.com being purchased by Canada's Shaun Pilfold for 88,000 Canadian Dollars ($75,823 US) and a deal for Buckhead.com about to close at $250,000. Just before our deadline for this column, DigiPawn.com announced the purchase of Buckhead.com, but the domain transfer had not been completed yet, so we will be unable to chart the sale until next week. 

Buckhead is an upscale neighborhood in Atlanta where Digipawn President Rick Latona makes his home. Latona said, "I probably overpaid for the domain but I live in Buckhead and just had to have it. Buckhead is where the money is at in Atlanta and we have an exciting new service we are launching to monetize local traffic.  We wanted to test it in our back yard. This is probably the highest price ever paid for the name of a neighborhood within a city.

By Ron Jackson

Pilfold's acquisition of Pinticton.com gives him a matching set of British Columbia city domains. Pilfold told us, "I've now completed the set of three cities located in the Okanagan Valley area I live in that includes Kelowna, Vernon and Penticton. Owning all three makes them all more valuable I think, especially after I start development next year."

.Mobi also made big news this week with Houston's Paul Chmiel purchasing Stocks.mobi and Girls.mobi for a total of $119,000 from Holland's Hennie Groot Lipman. Both of those rank among the five biggest sales reported in any extension this week. Stocks.mobi is #2 at $70,000 while Girls.mobi is #5 at $49,000. You can read more details on those transactions at Dotmobiz.com.

.Info also enjoyed a landmark sale with Gerald Brady buying #10 CreditCard.info for $25,500 in a private transaction. That ranks among the five biggest sales in the young history of that extension.

.Com enjoyed its usual dominance of the Big Board, claiming 15 of the 20 positions. However, .net managed to put a pair of names on the second half of our new Top 20. #15 CreditCardApplications.net sold at Afternic.com for $14,000 and #20 Mint.net went for $8,155 at SnapNames.com

SnapNames and Sedo.com each placed six domains on the leader board to lead all venues. The SnapNames roster was led by #3 IAB.com at $67,250 while #4 MobileTones.com was the standard bearer for Sedo at $60,000

In other chart highlights, BuyDomains.com landed in the #7 slot with AsianGames.com at $30,000. Robert Hodderbagh earned $18,000 from the sale of #13 ScenicHomes.com through a Network Solutions Certified Offer and DNForum.com facilitated the $15,500 sale of United-Kingdom.com. Here's a look at the complete Top 20 for the week ending Sunday, March 18:

Keep in mind that these are the highest value sales that have been reported to us in the past week. This column is meant to be an educational tool, not a complete list documenting ALL high value domain sales. Such a list is impossible to produce because many sales are kept private at the insistence of buyers, sellers or both.

Global Contenders (.biz, .info, .mobi, .net & .org)

.Mobi muscled its way to the top of the new Global Contenders chart with those two blockbusters you've already seen on our all-extension leader board - Stocks.mobi and Girls.mobi. Those domains also helped .mobi dominate the Year to Date GC Sales Chart where the new mobile extension now owns four of the top six positions competing head to head with the well established .net and .org extensions. 

.Info also nosed out the older TLDs this week, claiming the #3 spot with CreditCard.info at $25,500. .Net made its first appearance with #4 CreditCardApplications.net and went on to claim 11 of the 20 chart entries, more than any other extension. .Org had an off week with only four entries and didn't show up until THMS.org arrived at #8, going for $3,000 at Afternic.

.Biz broke into the top ten with #7 Arthur.biz bagging 2,900 ($3,861) at Sedo. .Info also took another bow with WebPage.info tying for #13 after being sold for $2,000 by WhatAreDomains.com at DNForum.com. Here's how all of the GC top sellers stacked up for the week ending March 18:
