Feel the Power! The 9th Seven-Figure Sale Reported So Far This Year Tops This Week's Sales Chart

The big news in the domain aftermarket this week is the $1,261,000 sale of Power.com that we told you about in a Lowdown post Tuesday (Nov. 11). George Kirikos uncovered the private transaction while looking through a 3rd quarter SEC filing made by the buyer, Power Integrations, a large Silicon Valley company that purchased the domain as an upgrade to their present address, PowerInt.com. The deal was co-brokered by Scott Smith and WebsiteProperties.com.

In addition to tipping us off on the sale, Kirikos noted that this is the 9th seven-figure sale reported so far this year, tying 2007 for the most reported sales at that level in any given year. We still have more than a month and half left in the 2014 sales season so a new standard may be set on that front before the new year arrives. 

Sedo claimed the #2 spot on this week's all extension Top 20 Sales Chart with EasyBet.com at $43,750. Their $25,000 sale of MGP.com also gave them a share of the #3 slot alongside RiskJobs.com, a name sold by Doron Vermaat of Efty.com for the same price. Sedo then rounded out the first five with iNavigate.com at $22,500.

By Ron Jackson

Sedo went on to pile up 15 of the 23 chart entries (the extra spots resulted from a 7-way tie for the final position). Their sale of #6 OAL.com at $19,999 helped the .coms sweep the first 7 chart entries and 14 places overall.

The non .com gTLDs were next with a half-dozen representatives on the Big Board, led by Flippa.com's $17,500 sale of Drones.net. The other five sales in this category were all premium .global domains sold by the operator the DotGlobal new gTLD. That group was headed by #9 (tie) Jobs.global at $15,000.

The three remaining chart openings went to ccTLDs with all three sold by Sedo. The highest one, #11 Gravity.co.uk raked in $12,720.

Here is how all of the sales leaders stacked up for the week ending Sunday, November 9:

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.

The highest sale in this category that you haven't seen yet is #4 on our latest weekly Country Code Top 20 Sales Chart. That is Starmaker.tv, a name that Sedo sold for $8,666

Germany's .de won the extension race with five chart entries, nipping the four posted by Great Britain's .co.uk. Tuvalu's .tv was next with three and was the only other TLD with multiple  chart entries.

Non .com gTLDs (.net, .org, .biz, .info & others, including new gTLDs)

The non .com gTLDs were led by the half-dozen five-figure sales from this group that you saw on the all extension leader board earlier, with Flippa.com's $17,500 sale of Drones.net setting the pace. Our latest  weekly Non .Com gTLD Top 20 Sales Chart is dominated by .global domains though. The new gTLD piled up 18 of the 23 chart entries (the extra spots resulting from a four-way tie for the final position) with all of those sales being premium names sold by the DotGlobal registry. 

The highest sales in this category that you haven't seen yet are a pair of names tied for #7 at $8,000 apiece. Sedo sold Penguin.club at the figure while DotGlobal banked the same amount for Sports.global. Rounding out the top ten are #9 RentalCars.global at $7,000 and #10 IDW.global at $5,200
