4-Digit Numerical Domain Sells for 6 Figures to Top New Sales Chart - 3-Letter .Com Also Passes 100K Mark 

We have seen a few 3-digit numerical domains sell for six figures over the past couple of years but while 4-digit domains have also become popular it is very rare to see one reach such heights. In fact only one did it last year (1515.com at $121,000) and none had done it this year until now. DomainsNext.com owner Mansour Elseify put 0007.com on top of our latest weekly all-extension Top 20 Sales Chart after selling it to a Hong Kong based company for $172,500

While that is nosebleed territory for four-digit domains it is common ground for 3-letter .coms and yet another one reached that level this week with Sedo selling #2 FLO.com for €109,106 ($128,745). Yet another one was just a step back with #3 WSB.com going for $85,000, also at Sedo, in a sale made by Senior Broker Dave Evanson. This is actually the second time that domain has sold at Sedo in the past 3 months. It had been purchased there in March for just $40,000, so someone made a very healthy profit by flipping the name for more than twice what they paid for it earlier this spring.

Still, 3-letter .coms change hands in an extremely broad price range. A third one landed on the top half of the elite list at #7 this week, but that one changed hands at a much different price point with YIG.com selling for $16,100 at NameJet

.Coms wound up sweeping 20 of the 23 chart entries with the extra spots resulting from a four-way tie for the final position. Their haul included nine of the top ten sales with Sedo booking five of the top six. Sedo also accounted for the biggest non .com sale, #10 USBetting.org at $15,000. Sedo wound up with 12 chart entries overall, including the lone ccTLD sale, #12 Edison.co at $12,000.

The new gTLDs also had a horse in the race with the .GLOBAL Registry selling #20 (tie) Deal.global for $8,000

Still, the .coms ruled the roost and NameJet had a lot to do with that. They released all of their May sales this week and wound up with nine spots on the Big Board - all nine of them .coms.

Here is how the sales leaders stacked up for the week ending Sunday, June 3, 2018:
