Another 3-Letter .Com Clears the 6-Figure Bar to Top This Week's Domain Sales Chart

The thirst for short .com domains remains unquenched. Last week the blockbuster $1 million sale of QNB.com made that clear, a point that was underscored this week with another 3-letter .com heading our all extension Top 20 Sales Chart after ringing the 6-figure bell. FindYourDomain.com (FYD) did the honors with YIN.com at $180,000

In releasing several of their recent sales for the first time FYD took the top two spots on the leader board - both of them short .com domains. The runner-up, Xiao.com, just missed six figures, coming in at $97,857. Overall FYD put six names on the elite list, including another one that landed on the top half of the ladder - #9 FoodLine.com at $14,000.

The first five was rounded out by the $50,000 sale of #3 Hacked.com handled by Flippa.com and NameConnect.com, the $40,000 sale of #4 SC.tv at MostWantedDomains.com and Sedo's  $35,477 sale of CompetitiveIntelligence.com. 

In addition to being the week's biggest ccTLD sale, SC.tv was one of three that Michael Berkens's company put on the Big Board, including another top ten entry in #8 TravelNepal.com at $15,000.

By Ron Jackson

Sedo also had their usual solid week with nine chart entries including the only non .com gTLD entry on this week's chart - #18 OVN.org at $9,888

With the .coms sweeping 19 of the 22 chart entries (the extra spots resulted from a three-way tie for the final position), the country codes also faced tough sledding but did claim two spots with #7 EasyHotel.ch at $21,800 joining SC.tv on the honor roll. There is an interesting story behind that sale of EasyHotel.ch in a private transaction that we detailed in a Lowdown post Monday. It's worth checking out if you missed it.

Here is how all of the sales leaders stacked up for the week ending Sunday, Dec. 14:

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.

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

The non .com gTLDs had no five-figure sales reported this week. The #1 domain on our latest weekly Non .com gTLD Top 20 Chart just missed with OVN.org coming in at $9,888 via Sedo. They also sold runner-up After.org for $5,000 and went on to book 13 of the 15 sales reported in this category. 

The exceptions were a couple of nice new gTLD domains - Atlanta.limo and LasVegas.limo - that Ryan Hilberth of Rentalimo.com bought from Steve Reuben for $4,400 each in a deal handled by Afternic.com. That put the matching pair in a tie for third on this week's leader board.

The .nets won the extension race with five chart entries followed by the .orgs with three.  Here's how all of the Non .Com gTLD leaders stacked up for the week ending Sunday, December 14:
