.CA Leads ccTLD Assault on This Week's Sales Chart - Canadian Domains Take Top Two Spots with 5 More Going to Other ccTLDs

For the second week in a row our all extension Top 20 Domain Sales Chart was led by a non .com domain. Last week it was a .org, this week it was a Canadian ccTLD - actually a pair of them as .CAs took the top two spots on the elite list. RH.ca took over the penthouse suite after a $39,750 sale made by IREX.ca. They accounted for the runner up as well, selling (Editor's note: name deleted 11-10-17 at buyer's request) for $28,000. The RH.ca sale is the 3rd largest ccTLD sale reported so far this year.

IREX.ca also gave us documentation for some previously unreported .CA sales of note from the past two years. In 2015 they sold CarsForSale.ca for $20,000 and in 2016 they moved Offers.ca for $38,500 and Ring.ca for $32,500. When sales from previous years come to light we add them to the Top 100 Chart for the appropriate year if they are high enough to qualify. All three of these did. 

CarsForSale.ca was added at #40 (tie) on our 2015 ccTLD Top 100 while Offers.ca joined our 2016 ccTLD Top 100 at #24 and Ring.ca at #26. IREX had three other previously unreported sales in 2016 that did not make that year's Top 100 but are worth putting on the record here - Choose.ca ($11,300), Litigation.ca (CAD $10,622) and RealEstateAgent.ca (CAD $10,170).

Returning to the present, In addition to the .CA sales at the top, the country code domains went on to pile up five more entries this week with Sedo ringing up all five of those. Three were German .de domains with #8 CarHifi.de leading that trio at $11,138

Last week non .com domains took the majority of spots on the top half of the leader board (6 of 10 positions). They did almost as well this week, splitting the top ten evenly with the .coms as five spots went to each camp. This week's non .com quintet included two 3-letter non .com gTLDs - #5 THF.org at $14,500 and #9 (tie) BND.net at $11,000. Sedo booked both of those sales and went on to sweep 18 of the 21 chart entries (the extra spot resulting from a tie for the final position).

While the ccTLDs and non .com gTLDs teamed up to take nine places overall, the .coms still wound up with the most entries with 12 charted sales going on their side of the ledger. RapidNames.com accounted for the one .com sale that Sedo didn't get - #15 CryptoStars.com at $6,565
