A New gTLD Tops This Week's Domain Sales Chart and 3 ccTLDs Hit the Top 10

They say variety is the spice of life. If that's true you will love this week's all extension Top 20 Sales Chart. With no sales higher than $35,000 reported, several non .com domains found themselves at the VIP table alongside the .coms on the top half of the leader aboard. In fact that biggest sale of all was a new gTLD - World.estate - a domain that was sold by NoktaDomains for $35,000. Nokta actually closed the deal in April but the sale agreement prevented them from disclosing it until now. 

While .coms took the next four spots, one of those was from a new  .com namespace operated by the .co.com registry. They sold #4 Mobile.co.com to Las Vegas based “micro jobbing” company Mobile Inc. for $25,000 in a transaction brokered by Igloo.com.

The rest of the top ten included three ccTLDs, led by Sedo's $18,750 sale of #6 Erfahrung.de ("knowledge" in German). Sedo also scored with a country code IDN - #7 Köln.tv at $14,375 and #9 (tie) Telegram.me at $10,000. Sedo went on to pile up 10 of the 20 chart entries including yet another ccTLD, #12 LSIP.in at $9,600.

By Ron Jackson

Nokta's chart topper wasn't the only new gTLD on the elite list either. They put Ocean.cruises in the #11 position after moving that domain for $9,900. Nokta piled up eight chart entries overall, including a third non .com gTLD - #20 Paket.net at $7,655.

While they had more competition than usual this week, the .coms still easily won the extension race with 13 chart entries, including the PlentyOfBrands.com sale of #13 (tie) SuiteSeats.com at $9,000.

Here is how all of the sales leaders stacked up for the week ending Sunday, November 16:

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.

The highest sale in this group that you haven't seen yet is #5 on our latest weekly Country Code Top 20 Sales Chart. That is Toothbrushes.co.uk, a name sold by NoktaDomains for $7,200.

Non .com gTLDs (.net, .org, .biz, .info & others, including new gTLDs)

The non .com gTLDs had only one five-figure sale reported this week but they made that one count. That $35,000 sale of World.estate at NoktaDomains was one of the year's top 15 sales in this category as well as one 2014's three biggest new gTLD sales. 

Aside from that headliner it was a slow week in this category with only a dozen sales reported for the entire group. Following the first three on the leader board (which you also saw on the all extension Top 20 Chart earlier) we have #4 JIE.net going for $4,800 and #5 Zhuang.net for $3,500 with Sedo handling the latter two sales.  

 Here's how all of the Non .Com gTLD leaders stacked up for the week ending Sunday, November 16:
