Sedo Posts Year's 2nd Six-Figure Sale to Top This Week's Domain Sales Chart

Sedo claimed the top spot on this week's Domain Sales Chart after banking $112,651 for Torrents.com. That is also the second highest sale of the New Year, trailing only last week's $375,000 sale of Booker.com on our early 2013 Year to Date Sales Chart.

Sedo wound up claiming three of the week's top five sales and seven of the 21 places on the Big Board (the extra spot resulted from a tie for the final position). In addition to #3 EatStreet.com at $44,000 their roster included the week's biggest ccTLD sale, #5 Compare.to at $23,475

Frank's Schilling's DomainNameSales (DNS) also turned in a stellar performance with a hand in eight charted sales - five on their own and three more shared with DomainAdvisors.com. #2 FXX.com set the pace for DNS at $60,000 while #4 RoadOne.com rang up $25,000 and #6 FXX.net (the week's biggest non .com gTLD sale) notched $19,000. The trio of sales DNS shared with DomainAdvisors was led by #9 OpenFeed.com at $15,000.  

By Ron Jackson

Afternic.com was busy ringing the registers too. They put four sales on the elite list including one of the ten best - #7 Everclear.com at $18,000. Chart honors also went to WinnerNames.com who sold #8 UpEntertainment.com for $17,500

The .coms had their usual dominant outing, piling up 17 of the 21 chart entries. The ccTLDs followed with three, including a second top ten entry - #10 Jobb.nu at $13,300 via Sedo. The non .com gTLDs were limited to the one spot I noted above (#6 FXX.net).

Here is how the sales leaders stacked up for the week ending Sunday, January 20:

Keep in mind that these are the highest value cash only 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.

Country Codes

The ccTLDs were led by the second highest sale of the New Year in this category, Compare.to (country code for Tonga) at $23,475 through Sedo. That's just a little over $300 short of the current ccTLD Year to Date leader Aandacht.nl ("Attention" in Dutch). Compare.to and the other two five-figure country code sales you saw in the all extension section above fill the first three slots on latest weekly Country Code Top 20 Sales Chart.

The highest sale ccTLD sale you haven't seen yet is #4 Register.org.uk, a domain that SellDomains.com sold for $9,500. Sedo's $8,645 sale of #5 Betrieblichekrankenversicherung.de (talk about a mouth full!) rounded out the first five. Sedo went on to sweep 15 of the 20 chart entries.

DomainNameSales claimed a couple of the chart entries that eluded Sedo's grasp including one that landed on the top half of the leader board - #6 MTX.co.uk at $8,050

Germany's .de easily won the extension race with 7 chart entries. Great Britain's .uk was next with four (three .co.uks and one .org.uk). Those were the only TLDs with multiple chart entries. Here is how the country code leaders stacked up for the week ending Sunday, January 20:
