Gents.com Claims A Spot on Our Final 2007 Year-To-Date Top 100 Chart After Six Figure Sale


Our final YTD Top 100
for 2007 is now set. Gents.com became the last name to crack the elite list after selling for $100,444 through MissDomain.com this past week. 2007 was the first year that every name on the year's Top 100 chart reached at least six figures. By comparison only 70 names broke that barrier in 2006. We also saw 9 seven-figure sales in 2007, compared to only three the year before.

Here is how all of the YTD leaders stacked up in 2007 (new chart entrants are always highlighted in green):

*Date column (month/day/year) shows date the sale was published in DN Journal

** In November 2009 an insider shill bidding scandal was revealed at SnapNames.com that affected as many as 50,000 auctions from 2005 to Oct. 2009. Sales from the tainted auctions were completed at the prices listed however, in an effort to offset some of the damage done, SnapNames offered refunds to those who paid more than they otherwise would have had the shill bidder not been running up the price against them. Some accepted those refunds and other did not, choosing to seek compensation through the courts. 

There is no way to know who received partial refunds and on what domains those refunds were issued, or even which reported SnapNames sales over the years were affected by the shill bidder. So, we are advising readers that even though SnapNames sales listed between 2005-Oct. 2009 were completed at the prices shown, some buyers may have received refunds after October 2009 of a portion of the original prices they paid.

2006 Chart: Top 100 Reported Sales for 2006

Go to Current Weekly Domain Sales Report

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

The Global Contenders Top 100 Chart closed the year with the same members it had last week as no sales over the final seven days of 2007 were high enough to crack this elite list. It took at least $18,500 to earn a spot on the 2007 GC Top 100.

Here is how all of the Global Contenders stacked up for the year we just completed (new chart entrants are always highlighted in green):

*Date column shows the date (month/day/year) the sale was published in DNJournal.  

** In November 2009 an insider shill bidding scandal was revealed at SnapNames.com that affected as many as 50,000 auctions from 2005 to Oct. 2009. Sales from the tainted auctions were completed at the prices listed however, in an effort to offset some of the damage done, SnapNames offered refunds to those who paid more than they otherwise would have had the shill bidder not been running up the price against them. Some accepted those refunds and other did not, choosing to seek compensation through the courts. 

There is no way to know who received partial refunds and on what domains those refunds were issued, or even which reported SnapNames sales over the years were affected by the shill bidder. So, we are advising readers that even though SnapNames sales listed between 2005-Oct. 2009 were completed at the prices shown, some buyers may have received refunds after October 2009 of a portion of the original prices they paid.
