Seven Figure Sale Lights Up the Domain Scoreboard After Being Finalized This Week 


Moniker.com auctioned 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.

By Ron Jackson

SnapNames.com had the most entries over all with six, led by #3 WealthyWomen.com at $20,122. Sedo.com and Afternic.com/BuyDomains.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, June 3:

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.

.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.

Country Codes

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:
