3-Digit Numeric .Com Changes Hands for $327,000 to Top This Week's Domain Sales Chart

No doubt about the king of the domain sales hill this week. James Booth's BQDN.com closed a blockbuster $327,000 sale of 708.com to lay claim to the top spot on our latest weekly all extension Top 20 Sales Chart. That is also one of the 10 biggest sales reported so far this year and the 3rd highest numeric domain sale of 2017 (topped only by 01.com at $1,820,000 in February and 20.com at $1,750,000 in April).

Sedo took the next two spots on the elite list with Medically.com at $53,000 and PayEther.com at $45,000. They went on to sweep 13 of the 20 chart entries (including #9 Wawel.com - a domain sold by Bart Sadowski at Bluberries Advertising). Those sales helped the .coms claim 10 spots overall. DNBX.com also contributed to the .com cause with #15 BLCP.com at $15,000.

BuyDomainsNames.co.uk nailed down the #4 spot with the week's biggest ccTLD sale - Massage.co.uk at $36,180. Two more solid country code sales at Sedo followed - #5 Experience.tv at $35,000 and Shein.de at $33,345. All three of those rank among the 10 biggest country code sales reported so far this year (the YTD ccTLD Top 100 Chart is the second chart on the page linked to).

In an outstanding week for the category, the country codes piled up eight chart entries overall with Sedo accounting for all but two of those (Massage.co.uk and #11 (tie) D8.tv, a name that changed hands for $15,000 in a private transaction).

The other two spots on the Big Board went to the Non .com gTLDs thanks to the .Global Registry's sales of #17 (tie) Jade.global and Retail.global at $8,000 each
