Two 6-Figure Sales Top This Week's Chart - Three of the Four Biggest Sales Are 3-Letter .Coms 

Ultra-short domain names loosened their stranglehold on the top sales this week, even though three of the top four spots went to 3-letter .coms. Last week 11 of the 12 biggest sales were 3 letters or less but this week those LLL .coms were the only ones among the first dozen that were that short. That's not to say the other leaders needed to tighten their alphabetical waistlines. In fact the week's biggest sale, Uniti.com at $197,500 via Tracy Fogarty's eNaming.com was only five letters long.

The next three spots went to a trio of 3-letter .com all sold by industry veteran Greg Ricks on his PerfectName.com platform. The former owner of DNForum.com who has an extensive collection of 3-letter .coms, recently began running live auctions on his site. That paid off in his sales of #2 MDF.com at $151,500, #3 DXC.com at $64,500 and #4 YJM.com at $61,100.

Rounding out the first five was the week's biggest non .com gTLD sale, Mortgage.info at $35,000 in a sale made by PlentyOfBrands.com. One other name from that category made the elite list with Chinese registry eName selling #13 188.top for ¥88,000 ($13,596).

The ccTLDs also claimed two entries on the Big Board. The highest of those was #7 Showroom.de, a domain that TradeMark Unlimited Inc. sold for $30,000. The other was logged by Sedo who collected $15,000 for #11 (tie) Sharks.tv

The .coms vacuumed up everything else, including seven more sales at Sedo, giving them eight chart entries overall. eNaming also had a big week, charting seven sales, including three on the upper half of our latest all extension Top 20 Sales Chart. In addition to having the #1 domain, they filled the #6 slot with VAPZ.com at $34,000 and shared the #8 hole with a $20,000 sale of Armilla.com

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 ccTLDs were led by the two five-figure sales you saw on the all extension leader board above - Showroom.de at $30,000 and Sharks.tv at $15,000. The highest sale in this category that you haven't seen yet is #3 on our latest Country Code Top 20 Sales Chart. That is Arts.eu at $8,666 via Sedo.

Rounding out the first five are Bid.io, a domain that Park.io sold for $7,000, and #5 GEA.se, moved for $5,995 at Sedo. They went on to take the next 10 entries in a row and wound up with all but three spots overall. Golem.eu claimed one of the few Sedo missed, picking up $2,616 for #15 eSports.eu.

Germany's .de won a tight extension race with four chart entries, nipping the European Union's .eu and Great Britain's .co.uk that each had three. Here is how the country code leaders stacked up for the week ending Sunday, Dec. 13:
