EZY Does It! Another 3-Letter .Com Leads This Week's Domain Sales Chart - Year's Biggest .Info Sale Also Booked

After four weeks of stellar sales the market took a bit of a breather this week. One thing did remain the same though - a 3-letter .com is at the top of our latest all extension Top 20 Sales Chart. Last week it was the blockbuster $2 million dollar sale of ETH.com. This week's winning combo was EZY.com but, at least price wise, that's where the similarity ended as this domain changed hands for $58,116. Still that's a very respectable sale for Sedo. ETH.com's stratospheric price was based on its unique meaning (as the abbreviation for the red hot cryptocurrency Ethereum).

.Coms swept the first six chart entries and 14 of 20 places overall. Logan Flatt claimed the runner-up spot with ABCapital.com at $34,488. Logan just acquired that domain in June when he paid only $2,300 to win it in a SnapNames auction!

Matthew Van Grinsven sold #3 Cousins.com for $30,000 in a private transaction and Sedo rounded out the first five with Indofil.com ($24,900) and PrivatePsychology.com ($20,300)

Sedo went on to sweep 15 of the 20 chart entries. Their haul included #6 (tie) SportsBetting.info at $20,000. In addition to being the highest non .com sale of the week that is the biggest .info sale of the entire year to date. Four other non com gTLDs made the elite list, led by the .GLOBAL Registry's $18,000 sale of #8 IP.global.

The ccTLDs were limited to one spot on the Big Board this time around. That went to #20 Dan.de, a German country code domain that sold for $6,902 at Sedo.

Before we go to the leader board I also want to tell you about a major transaction that is not chart eligible because it included multiple domains and other intellectual property including trademarks. Still, domain industry veteran Jay Westerdal's purchase of Vanity.com (plus Vanity.net and related assets) for $340,000 in a Hilco Streambank bankruptcy auction is well worth noting. I would not be surprised to see Westerdal make a significant profit on the lead domain alone or the entire package should he decide to let it go. 

Now back to the business at hand. Here is how the sales leaders stacked up for the week ending Sunday, October 29, 2017:
