15.com Fetches $100,000 in This Week's Top Reported Domain Sale 

Last year, Ian Andrew of DotcomAgency.com bought 14.com and this week he took the next logical step, purchasing 15.com at Sedo. Andrew told us his company plans to develop both of those domains as game portals. 15.com holds the #1 spot on our new Top 20 chart with RentalHouse.com in the runner-up slot after being sold by Gabriel Gσmez Rojo at DNForum.com for $72,000.

After those two there was a rapid price fall-off to the $27,777 commanded by #3 BuyUSA.com at SnapNames.com. BassetHound.com got a bite on the 4th position after going for $25,420 at Moniker.com.  

By Ron Jackson

Sedo.com had a huge week, sweeping half of the entries on the Big Board. Their list of ten winners was headed by a pair of names; Mapa.com and BlingNation.com that tied for 5th at $20,000 each. SnapNames, who charted five domains, came back at #7 with DSLStart.com at $18,662. Moniker added a second entry with #12 MySuperSweet16.com at $15,250.

Afternic.com/BuyDomains.com and TDNAM.com also made appearances on the elite list. The ActiveExchange at Afternic/BuyDomains scored with #11 Ticketbusters.com at $15,500 while TDNAM picked $8,005 from #19 TomatoVine.com

As usual, .com accounted for most of the chart entries, taking 14 of 20 positions, however the Country Codes claimed four rungs on the all-extension ladder with the other two going to .orgs. Sedo sold all four of those ccTLDs, with #8 Webcam.in (India's country code) leading the way at £9,200 ($18,299). The .org entries were #16 V-Chip.org, sold at SnapNames for $10,750 and #18 WomenToWomen.org, a name that sewed up $9,000 at Sedo. 

Here's a look at the complete leader board for the week ending Sunday, May 6:

Keep in mind that these are the highest value 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.
