.Coms Retake the Driver's Seat - They Dominate This Week's Chart With a $150,000 Sale Leading the Charge 

After seeing new gTLDs take the top spot on our all extension Top 20 Sales Chart for the last two weeks in a row, the long dominant  .coms re-asserted themselves this week, sweeping 16 of the 21 chart entries including the first three in a row (the extra spot resulted from a tie for the final opening). With three places going to non .com gTLDs (of the old variety - .net, .org and .info) and the other two to ccTLDs, the new G's went away empty handed this time out. 

Like the new gTLDs that led the past two charts (Autism.rocks at $100,000 last week and Wine.club at $140,000 the week before) the latest leader - HotDog.com - also broke the six-figure barrier. Flippa.com teamed up with Brannans.com to move that domain for $150,000

Sedo filled the #2 slot with Filament.com, a domain that two their top brokers - Dave Evanson and  Jin-Hee Choi - teamed up to sell for $89,000. DomainHoldings.com rounded out the power trio at the top with their Hobi Michalec closing a $58,000 deal for BTCC.com

By Ron Jackson

The ccTLDs interrupted the .com run with one of the year's 10 biggest sales in that category, with #4 Cloud.io moving for $45,000 at Flippa. Sedo put a second country code on the Big Board with #19 S1.tv at $8,400.

Sedo rounded out the first five with IPEK.com at $40,000 then put up the week's top non .com gTLD sale with #6 CCC,net at $17,888. They went on to pile up 15 chart entries overall, including a second non .com gTLD - #16 NEN.org at $9,888. The third charted domain from that group went to Flippa for their $8,000 sale of #20 (tie) 3DPrinter.info. Flippa also had an excellent week overall with five of the Top 20 sales.  

There is an interesting side note on Sedo's $15,600 sale of #7 DreamCasino.com. The seller had acquired that domain in February for just $2,235 on NameJet, showing the art of successful domain flipping remains alive and well. 

One other note today - in last week's report I credited the sale of #4 FOYR.com (at $30,495) solely to eNaming.com but Indus Domains also had an equal hand in making that one happen so I wanted to correct the record and give them the credit they are due. That gives me an opportunity to again thank the many leading sales venues, brokers and private buyers and sellers who have made this weekly report possible for the past 12 years through their willingness to share their sales data with us and you.

Now, on to a look at how all of the sales leaders stacked up for the week ending Sunday, June 28:

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 reported only one five-figure sale this week but that was a sweet one. Flippa's $45,000 sale of Cloud.io is one of the ten biggest sales in this group reported so far this year (the YTD ccTLD Top 100 is the second chart on the page linked to). You saw that sale and the #2 sale of S1.tv at $8,400 on the all extension leader board above so the biggest sale in this category that you haven't seen yet is # 3 in our latest weekly Country Code Top 20 Chart. That is Reizvoll.de, a domain Sedo sold for $6,660.

Rounding the first five are Nidoma.com's $6,216 sale of #4 OpenSpace.it and Sedo's $5,550 sale of #5 Strafrecht.eu. Sedo went on to sweep 14 of the 20 chart entries. Nidoma and Park.io each filled two slots including Park.io's top ten sale of Caller.io at $3,800. Golem.eu also claimed a spot with their $3,329 sale of #14 Hungry.be

Germany's .de won the extension race with four chart entries. Three other extensions - .io, .it and .co - each had two. 4. Here is how the country code leaders stacked up for the week ending Sunday, June 28:

Non .com gTLDs (.net, .org, .biz, .info & others, including new gTLDs)

While no new gTLDs made the all extension Top 20 Sales Chart at the top of this report, four found places on our latest weekly Non .com gTLD Top Sales Chart. Even so, the top spots went to the traditional leaders - .net and .org. The lead slot went to CCC.net at $17,888 with NEN.org taking the runner-up position at $9,888. Both sold through Sedo. 

Flippa filled the next two spots with 3DPrinter.info ($8,000) and Innovate.org ($3,495) and Sedo rounded out the first five with the first new gTLD on the list - Simple.chat at $3,329. Sedo went on to sweep 15 of the 17 chart entries.  

The extension race wound up in a dead heat with the .nets and .orgs claiming five spots apiece.   Here's how all of the Non .Com gTLD leaders stacked up for the week ending Sunday, June 28:
