Mommy Makes Six Figures But 8 of the Week's Top 10 Domain Sales Went to 3-Letter .Coms

The value of 3-letter .coms is no secret but that group really flexed their muscles this week, sweeping 8 of the 10 biggest sales on our latest all extension Top 20 Sales Chart and taking 11 places overall! Even so, just as in real life, nothing could quite compare to Mommy as we saw with Sedo claiming the top spot on the elite list with Mommy.com at $100,000

3-letter .coms then began their charge by capturing the next 3 positions on the Big Board. NameJet, who released all of their top October sales this week, banked $49,100 for #2 XLC.com and another $30,300 for #4 SVG.com. Sandwiched in between was the $35,300 sale of #3 FHL.com by GritBrokerage. NameJet wound up putting seven more 3-letter .coms on the leader board and Sedo posted one as well with #6 OWI.com at $28,999.

The onslaught of 3-letter .coms sales sucked up most of the oxygen in the room en route to helped the .coms corral 16 of the 20 chart entries.

The ccTLDs managed to claw out three spots including a pair of rare .cc sales logged by NameJet - #13 KS.cc at $22,560 and #18 (tie) 837.cc at $15,000. The other charted country code sale went to InformationStart.com where #14 (tie) Strafadvocaten.nl ("criminal defense lawyers" in Dutch) changed hands for $16,843.

That left just one opening for the non .com gTLDs that was claimed by NameJet's $15,200 sale of #17 UnmillenialProject.org. The value of that name appears to be in traffic from a website that previously existed on the domain. 

Here is how the sales leaders stacked up for the week ending Sunday, November 5, 2017:
