Short and Sweet: 12 of the Week's Top 20 Sales Were 3 Characters or Less

Short domains have always been attractive but over the past couple of years it often seems like buyers eyes are focused almost exclusively on these petite beauties. The past week was a good example with 9 of the 11 biggest sales running just 3 characters long. Eight of those were ever popular 3-letter .coms and the 9th was a 3-character .com - all sold by NameJet who just released all of their November sales. We also saw a trio of single character .at domain sales at Sedo that gave the 3-and-under group a dozen spots on our latest all-extension Top 20 Sales Chart

PEB.com led the pack with a $45,000 sale at NameJet. The runner-up was was barely over 3 characters with 4-digit numeric domain 2869.com coming in at $39,567 at SnapNames. The power trio at the top was completed by the week's biggest ccTLD sale - #3 Lampara.es ("lamp" in Spanish) at $38,520 via Sedo.

The next six in a row were more 3-letter .coms from NameJet, including #4 LAA.com at $35,700. They also closed out the top ten with the 3-character W55.com at $18,666. The .coms wound up piling up 14 entries overall.

The ccTLDs took the remaining six spots, leaving the non .com gTLDs out in the cold. The country code contingent included Sedo's sales of 7.at, X,at and S.at from their November series of three short .at domain auctions. 

Here is how all of the sales leaders stacked up for the week ending Sunday, December 4, 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.
