Seven-Figure Blockbuster Tops This Week's Domain Sales Chart - Top 20 Includes 7 ccTLDs

The year's second 7-figure domain sale was reported this week when serial entrepreneur and angel investor Jason Calacanis revealed he sold 20.com to an unidentified Chinese buyer for $1,750,000. NameExperts.com broker Joe Uddeme represented Calacanis is the deal. Calacanis had acquired the domain for just $75,000 in 2006. This is the second biggest sale reported so far this year, trailing only the $1,820,000 sale of 01.com that we reported on February 1st.

The runner-up spot on our latest all-extension Top 20 Sales Chart went to another ultra-short .com. Sharjil Saleem brokered the $115,000 sale of J5.com to claim that slot and that wasn't his only big hit this week. Sharjil also moved 16.net for $60,000 in one of the top five non .com gTLD sales reported so far in 2017. 

This was also a very good week for the ccTLDs who piled up seven entries on the Big Board. Four of those, including the two biggest country code sales, were Italian .it domains that came to light when Nidoma.com updated us on all of their sales from the past three months. Their list included #4 SOS.it at $22,363 (one of the year's 10 biggest ccTLD sales to date) and #5 Launch.it at $17,122.

Sedo accounted for the other three ccTLD sales, as well as the only other non .com gTLD sale on the elite list (#13 Vector.org at $8,999). Added to their seven charted .com sales, Sedo wound up sweeping 11 of the 20 chart entries. Their roster was led by #6 ColorStreet at $16,000 and #7 Porn4K.com at $15,000.  

The .com effort (11 chart entries in all) was also aided by #11 Karamel .com (sold by AuthorityDomains.co.uk through GoDaddy Auctions) at $9,888 and #14 LovelyPepa.com (moved for $7,500 on the Above.com Marketplace).

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

As I noted above it was a big week for the ccTLDs who put seven domains on our all extension Top 20. The biggest sales in this category that you haven't seen yet are a pair of names that tied for #8 on our latest weekly Country Code Top 20 Sales Chart. Those were Dela.de and Sportube.it at $4,815 each, both via Sedo (who piled 11 chart entries overall).

Rounding out the top ten was 123Movies.co.uk, a name that went for $4,800 on the Above.com Marketplace.

With Nidoma (who is an Italian company based in Gerrmany) releasing three months worth of sales this week, .it cruised to an easy win in the extension race with 11 chart entries. Germany's .de was the only other TLD with multiple entries, claiming three spots on the leader board.  

Here is how the country code leaders stacked up for the week ending Sunday, April 16, 2017:
