Big Domain Sales Continue to Blossom - A Quartet of 6-Figure Sales Tops This Week's Chart 

Last week I noted that spring had arrived along with some nice high end domain sales (three of which reached six figures). This week went one better with four sales breaking the six-figure barrier including the year's biggest ccTLD sale to date and its 2nd biggest Non .com gTLD sale. The latter one, Video.games, topped our latest all extension Top 20 Sales Chart after Rightside revealed they sold the new GTLD domain in February for $183,000

That news came in a press release in which Rightside reported all of their five and six-figure new gTLD sales to date  that were not subject to non-disclosure agreements (53 sales in all). However, we were only able to chart the highest one, Video.games, as it was the only one for which a sale date was noted (we did request dates for the others but have not received a reply). When sales made in the current year are first reported we chart them the week the information is made public, If they are being reported for the first time but occurred in previous years we add any that qualify to the Top 100 Chart for the year in which they were sold (those annual charts are available in our Domain Sales Archive).

A pair of .coms filled the next two spots on this week's leader board with #2 CryptoBank.com going for $125,000 via Undeveloped.com and Sedo selling #3 1515.com for $121,000 in a deal handled by Senior Broker Dave Evanson, who has rung up a remarkable number of sales at this level over the years.

Robert Kaay of DBR.com.au (Domain Broker Australia) also joined the six-figure club this week with the year's biggest ccTLD sale to date - #4 Fetch.com.au at 132,000 AUD ($100,320). Kaay also scored with #9 PD.com.au at 42,000 AUD ($31,920). In each case an end user bought the domain. The operators of FetchTV.com.au grabbed Fetch.com.au with Kaay representing the seller and insurance company Progressive Direct Australia bought PD.com.au with Kaay representing the buyer in that acquisition.

Sedo's $50,000 sale of eSports.net rounded our the first five and gave the Non .com gTLDs a second entry on the Big Board. 

The ccTLDs had an outstanding week with six entries overall, four of which reached the top half of the elite list including broker Chirag Chavda's $37,000 sale of TV.cc. All of those four also rank among the five highest country code sales reported so far this year! (the YTD ccTLD Top 100 is the 2nd chart on the page linked to).

Still, it was the .coms that continued to reel in the biggest share of the weekly catch, taking 12 of 20 chart entries this week. DomainsNext contributed to the haul with #11 0867.com at $24,800, as did Tuoky.com with #12 PQI.com at $24,500.

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.

Country Codes

The ccTLDs had a lot to celebrate this week with four of the year's five biggest sales in this category all rung up this time around the track! Fetch.com.au led that group at $100,320 to top both this week's chart and the YTD ccTLD Top 100. The six biggest country code sales all made the all extension leader board above so the biggest sale from this group that you haven't seen yet is #7 on our latest weekly Country Code Top 20 Sales Chart. That is Sedo's $8,559 sale of TMHCC.es.

Park.io filled the next three spots on the elte list and took ten entries overall after releasing all of their 2017 sales to date for the first time this week.  Most of those were .io domains including the trio that rounded out the top ten, led by #8 Calculator.io at $7,500

Thanks to Park.io's report, .io easily won the extension race with ten chart entries. Germany's .de was next with three. Here is how the country code leaders stacked up for the week ending Sunday, April 2, 2017:
