Latest news of the domain name industry

 

Editor's Note: I was away last week covering the first ever WHD.usa conference (daily highlights are posted in our Lowdown section) so there was no Domain Sales column last Wednesday (May 20th). Instead, I will bring you completely up to date on all sales reported since our last column below (from May 13) with a double-length column that will be published on Thursday evening, May 28th (a day later than usual because most U.S. businesses will be closed for the Memorial Day holiday on Monday, May 25, pushing our production schedule back one day).

It's the Same Old (but Sweet) Song! Big Sale of Same.com Tops This Week's Chart Backed by Five More Hits from the 3-Letter .Coms

Short .com domains have gotten so popular it's just a matter of time before some new band calls themselves the 3-Letter .Coms! Five more of them filled spots in the top ten on our latest weekly all extension Top 20 Sales Chart. However a name just one letter longer, Same.com, took the top spot with a sweet $233,333 sale brokered by Larry Fischer's GetYourDomain.com (with Sedo handling the escrow).

The latest round of impressive 3-letter .com sales was led by Sedo's $78,400 sale of NFC.com. Voove.com put OKF.com in the #4 slot at $26,000 and Flippa.com secured a tie for #5 with their $25,000 sale of NUP.com. Sedo put two more on the Big Board with JUR.com and JVA.com tying for #9 at $16,500 each

Sedo also had the week's biggest ccTLD sale, scoring with #3 Veilingen.nl at $34,720. That is one of five country code domains on the leader board, including a pair of Australian domains from NetFleet.com.au - #11 Stocks.com.au at $13,728 and #14 (tie) Stockbroker.com.au at $11,088.

By Ron Jackson

The non .com gTLDs claimed a couple of spots on the elite list with Sedo moving #14 (tie) Trading.info for $11,088 and #18 (tie) Laws.org for $10,000.

Still, as is almost always the case, .the .coms captured the lion's share of the pie, raking in 14 of the 21 chart entries (the extra spot resulted from a four-way tie for the final position). Perception.com contributed to the .com cause with their $15,000 sale of #10 SlowDown.com.

Here is how all of the sales leaders stacked up for the week ending Sunday, May 10:

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.
