One of the Year's 3 Biggest ccTLD Sales Takes Top Spot on This Week's Domain Sales Chart

We're used to seeing short .com domains at the top of our weekly sales charts but this week was different. The ccTTLDs scored an easy win with GritBrokerage's $89,000 sale of Leaf.co. That's the 3rd highest country course sale reported so far this year, trailing only two .co.uk domains - Furniture.co.uk (sold for $650,000 in August) and Purple.co.uk (sold for $155,520 in June). Leaf.co has been under WhoIs privacy since it was transferred and no site is resolving there yet, so the buyer, at least for now, is unknown.

While a ccTLD leads our latest weekly all extension Top 20 Sales Chart that doesn't mean short .com sales were lacking - quite the  contrary. The next four spots on the leader board were all taken by 3-letter .coms sold by James Booth's BQDN.com. THB.com and WBG.com tied for 2nd at $44,000 each while LXB.com brought $41,500 and SWD.com drew $40,000. All told 12 of the 20 chart entries were four letters or less with 8 of those 12 being .coms.

The .coms took 16 of 20 places overall with the ccTLDs and non .com gTLDs claiming two spots apiece. The second country code domain on the Big Board also reached the top ten with #9 EVUS.us closing at $13,000 via Sedo. The non .com gTLDs scored with Flippa's $16,500 sale of Loan.info and Sedo's $5,655 sale of #18 CO.club.

Flippa also contributed three sales to the .com surge including #12 (tie) Hexo.com at $10,000. However, Sedo had the lead role, piling up 11 entries overall, including 9 of the .coms - three of which landed on the the top half of the elite list including #6 MyMed.com at $25,000.

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.

Country Codes

The ccTLDs were led by those two five-figure sales you saw on the all extension leader board with Leaf.co landing the biggest punch of the week with that $89,000 sale via GritBrokerage.com. The $13,000 sale of EVUS.us at Sedo was also an impressive one as that was the biggest .US sale reported so far this year.

The highest sale in this category from the past week that you haven't seen yet is #3 on our latest Country Code Top Sales Chart. That is Flippa's sale of Movie.io at $4,000. Sedo rounded out the first five with #4 Clever.ai at $3,800 and #5 Thats.tv at $3,100.

Sedo accounted for seven of the 16 charted sales. Three other venues had multiple entries with two each - Golem.eu, DomainLore.co.uk and SnapNames.com - and Golem's $2,199 sale of #9 FitShot.at was the highest among the latter three venues.
