3-Letter .Com Brings $235,000 to Top This Week's Sales Chart - Big Australian ccTLD Sale is #2

The New Year has just gotten started but an old favorite continues to create the biggest sales. 3-letter .coms went ballistic in 2015 and yet another one tops this week's all extension Top 20 Sales Chart after BGI.com changed hands for $235,000 in a private transaction. In addition to our latest weekly chart we also just published our first Year to Date Top Sales Chart of 2016 and four of the top five sales on that list are 3-letter .coms.

While the .coms had their usual dominant outing this week, taking 13 of the 20 chart entries,  the ccTLDs also had a good showing with four names on the elite list, including #2 Toys.com.au, a domain that changed hands for $63,897 at NetFleet.com.au.

Sedo rounded out this week's first five with a trio of sales - #3 Rostrum.com ($43,600), #4 PayBoost.com ($25,000) and #5 Byways.com ($20,000). They went on to sweep 16 of the 20 chart entries.

By Ron Jackson

The non .com gTLDs had only 11 sales in the entire category reported this week, but three of those - all .nets - made the Big Board. #9 Clothing.net led the way at $10,900 with #10 (tie) CEC.net adding $10,900 and #18 489.net going for $7,150 at SnapNames. 

Here is how the sales leaders stacked up for the week ending Sunday, Jan. 24, 2016 (a previously reported sale of RPL.com.au was removed from the chart shortly after publication when we learned it had not been completed due to the buyer reneging on the purchase):

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.
