Latest news of the domain name industry

The Domain Aftermarket Crowns a New 2012 Heavyweight Champion With $2.45 Million Sale

Sales at the ultra high end of the domain market have been rare this year. Until this past week, only PersonalLoans.com had breached the 7-figure barrier - and just barely, changing hands for an even $1 million last February through  DomainNameSales.com. No publicly reported sale since then had approached that figure until Investing.com broke the drought with a $2.45 million haymaker this week to take over #1 position on our Year to Date Top 100 Sales Chart. ForexPros.com acquired the domain in a private transaction and immediately launched a global financial portal on the premier domain.

Sedo took the next two spots on this week's all extension Top 20 Sales Chart with EndGame.com at $80,000 and Latest.com at $28,624. They went on to pile up 11 of the 21 chart entries (the extra position resulted from a tie for the final rung on the ladder) including #5 Xuexi.com at $20,000. The .coms wound up sweeping 17 places on the Big Board.

The week's top ccTLD sale also reached the first five. DomainNameCompany.co.uk sold #4 Fetch.co.uk for £17,500 ( $28,175). Sedo put a second country code domain in the top ten with #6 K1.de changing hands on their platform for €12,000 ( $15,720).

Two non .com gTLDs also made the elite list, led by Afternic's $13,580 sale of #8 CTH.org. Sedo also scored in this category with #11 Stromrechner.net at €9,100 ( $11,921). Afternic rang up seven chart entries overall with a roster led by #7 MobilePress.com at $15,000

Here is how the sales leaders stacked up for the week ending Sunday, Dec. 9:

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. Our procedure for verifying the accuracy of domain sales reports is available here.

For the many newcomers entering the domain industry we also want to point out that the reasons why a domain name sells for a certain price can be varied and are not always clear to those who are unfamiliar with the domain market. If you do not understand why specific domain names command the prices they do, you are likely to make unwise domain registrations or purchases. We highly recommend that you do some basic research before you buy anything! As a starting point we have built a sister site specifically for you at NameNewbie.com.
