Four 6-Figure Transactions Totaling Over $1.1 Million Top This Week's Domain Sales Chart

Someone mist have missed the "summer doldrums" memo! Four high end sales lit up the domain aftermarket this week with three of those not only topping our latest weekly all-extension Top 20 Sales Chart, but also crashing the top 20 sales for the entire Year to Date.

That power trio at the top featured three band mates that each sold for more than $300,000! PY.com led the charge at $358,000 as that sale from the second Heritage Auctions (HA) event in March was finally closed (Heritage allows winning bidders up to four months to pay). Another big IP auction house, Hilco Streambank, locked down the #2 spot with Dots.com at $320,000. Heritage came right back with another blockbuster, closing #3 HY.com for $320,000

In a side note, HY.com was sold by Aron Meystedt, who, as many of you know, is the Founder and Director of HA's Domain Name & Intellectual Property Division. Aron's faith in the system he played a key role in building was rewarded with that handsome sale.

In yet another solid six-figure sale, Braden Pollock of LegalBrandMarketing.com sold #4 Statement.com for a cool $140,000

Sedo rounded out the first five with a name that came close to eclipsing the six-figure mark - GCA.com at $90,000. That is one of four 3-letter .coms on this week's leader board. Flippa.com sold #8 OAR.com for $28,500, Sedo moved #9 PDN.com for $27,900 and NameConnect.com used the Flippa platform to sell #12 AZU.com at $18,000. Those sales, combined with that pair of two-letter .com blockbusters, again proved that short acronyms never go out of style.

The .coms wound up sweeping 15 of the 20 chart entries with DomainMarket.com helping the cause through their $40,000 sale of #7 MakeSomeNoise.com

The ccTLDs carved out three spots on the elite list with Sedo ringing up all of those. Their country code trio was led by #10 Open.tv at $25,000

That left two spots on the Big Board for the non .com gTLDs. Flippa posted the highest one with #14 Mortgages.info at $14,095. The second went to Sedo who sold #19 Matrix.org for $7,999 as they went on to pile up 12 of the 20 chart entries.

All in all, a very impressive week, especially when you consider that giant sales venue Go Daddy/Afternic, is still unable to report sales due to SEC quiet period rules surrounding Go Daddy's current IPO.  

Here is how all of the sales leaders stacked up for the week ending Sunday, July 20:

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.
