Figure Sale Lights Up the Domain Scoreboard After Being Finalized
Moniker.comauctioned off Scores.com at the Casino Affiliates
Convention last month in Amsterdam. The high bid was a
whopping $1,180,000 and that blockbuster deal was closed this
week to easily claim the top spot on our new Top 20 domain
sales chart. In fact that is the third highest sale reported so
far in 2007.
Moniker also had the number two slot with Mozambique.com
at $82,500. That name was actually auctioned off three months
ago at T.R.A.F.F.I.C. West, but it took until now to get that
straggler squared away. Another one fitting the same description, KO.net
was also just finalized at $10,000 to tie for the final
position on the Big Board.

had the most entries over all with six, led by #3 WealthyWomen.com
at $20,122. Sedo.com
were also hot with five charted domains each. Sedo took four of five
positions on the top half of the chart starting with #4 Rohde.com
at $20,000. The flag bearer for Afternic/BuyDomains was #9
(tie) UnifiedSchoolDistrict.com at $16,000. Pool.com
also had multiple entries, scoring twice.
While .Com swept all but one entry
last week, alternate extensions bounced back to take six spots on
the elite list this time out. There were two ccTLDs (both
representing Germany's .de), two .nets and two .orgs.
Here's a look at the complete leader board for the week ending Sunday,

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.
All of the charted domains cracked at least the
five-figure mark again this week while the supporting cast featured
several hundred solid four figure sales. At the Afternic/BuyDomains ActiveExchange,

(.biz, .info, .mobi, .net & .org)
SUV.Net drove to the top of the Global Contenders
chart this week after selling for $14,200 at Enom's Club
Drop. That domain was one of 10 .nets on the list, giving
that extension half of the overall entries. .Org was close
behind with eight, including a pair of $10,000 sales that tied KO.net
for the runner-up position.
.Mobi and .Info split the two remaining
spots. The mobile extension scored with #10 Malls.mobi at $4,500
and Webb.info wound up tied for 15th at $2,500. Both of
those domains were sold at Sedo. Afternic/BuyDomains led all venues on
the chart, sweeping 10 of the 20 positions.
Here's how all of the GC
leaders stacked up for the

There were 38 more four-figure GC sales
just off the chart and Afternic/BuyDomains accounted for the
majority of those - 25 in all. You can see their additional Global Contenders
sales in the table below:
Afternic/BuyDomains G.C. Sales
At SnapNames Dealership.org delivered $1,827,
Zango.net notched $1,603, Com104.net captured $1,550
and Bobbins.org boxed up $1,151.
At Sedo, the winners included Wakeboards.net

TDNAM also got into the act with BitesXXL.net
It was a very big week for Germany's .de
(the world's 2nd most popular extension). ESF.de heads
our new Country Code chart after going for $16,090 at
Sedo, a venue that walked off with 17 of the 20 chart entries. .DE
went on to pile up 9 charted domains, including the top three on the
ccTLD leader board.
.TV was next with three charted names, led by
#6 UV.tv at $4,335. There was actually a .TV sale far
larger than that ($27,000) but it can't be charted
because a non disclosure request kept Sedo from releasing the name.
Spain's .es was the only other ccTLD with
multiple entries, scoring twice. The other nations represented this
week were Italy (.it), France (.fr), Mexico (.com.mx),
Great Britain (.co.uk), the United States (.us) and
the Netherlands (.nl). Here's a look at the complete Country Code
chart for the week ending June 3:

the chart Berufe.eu (European Union ccTLD) sold for $1,149
