Three of Week's Top Five Sales Are 3-Letter .Coms - ccTLDs Claim 8 Chart Entries

The perennial popularity of 3-letter .coms continues unabated. While the top spot on our latest all extension Top 20 Sales Chart went to Acure.com at $65,000, three of the next four spots went to 3-letter .coms. Sedo sold #2 FFG.com for $60,000, Erwan Kina moved #3 NWT.com for $40,000 and Sedo rounded out the first five with #5 UIO.com at $21,600. Sandwiched in between the latter two was #4 Antalya.de at $22,400 - the highest of eight ccTLDs on the elite list.

Shane Kinsch of Netracorp.com gets credit for the #1 sale after sending Acure.com to AcureOrganics. That led a pack of 11 .coms on the Big Board, including Sedo's sale of #6 Antonia.com at $20,580.

 Sedo went on to sweep 18 pf the 21 chart entries (the extra spot resulting from a tie for the final position). SnapNames was the only other company able to buck the tied with their $8,500 sale of #16 JJMC.com

Sedo accounted for all eight of those country code sales, including a second one that cracked the top ten - #10 (tie) Urlaub.co at $11,200.

The non .com gTLDs were left with one spot on the leader board that went to Sedo's $20,525 sale of #7 BBR.net. It was an extraordinarily slow week for this group overall with only six sales reported for the entire category.  

Here is how all of the sales leaders stacked up for the week ending Sunday, May 22, 2016:

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.
