Women Rule! Female Domain Owners Take the Top Two Spots on This Week's Sales Chart 

Talk about perfect timing. Two days ago we published a new Cover Story - Women For the Win! How An Influx of Talented Female Professionals Is Transforming the Domain Industry For Good - about the rapidly rising number of successful women who are making their mark in this business. Now, just 48 hours later, comes further evidence of that welcome trend as women took both of the top two spots on our latest weekly all extension Top 20 Domain Sales Chart. We haven't tracked the identity of all buyers and sellers through the 15 years we've been doing this report but I have known many of them and I don't recall this ever happening before.

It is also fitting that the top sale was made by one of the 16 women featured in that Cover Story, ExcellentDomains.ca founder Ilze Kaulins-Plaskacz (who was also profiled in our September 2015 Cover Story). Ilze reached the top rung on the ladder with her €49,000 ($60,270) sale of Margo.com.

The # 2 sale went to Anna Bastian who moved Unimoney.com, fittingly enough through Uniregistry.com, for $45,011

By Ron Jackson

Anna is one of several dynamic women who entered the industry relatively recently, quickly earning respect for their professionalism and passion for domains. You will no doubt be hearing much more from her in the future!

The .coms went on to sweep 13 of the 20 chart entries but the ccTLDs also had an outstanding week. In fact they took three of the next four spots on the elite list and six places overall. Sedo's $38,056 sale of #3 Sturm.de ("storm" in German) led the country code contingent with strong backing from another Sedo sale - #5 UME.de at $22,571 and one from GritBrokerage - #6 Fort.co at $18,000. Sandwiched in between those ccTLDs was a $29,888 sale of #4 DotData.com that Michael Mann's DomainMarket made through Sedo.

Sedo went on a tear and swept all of the final 14 positions (16 places overall). Their haul included the only .non .com gTLD to make the Big Board - #8 Kreditkarte.info ("credit card" in German) at $14,022.

Here is how all of the sales leaders stacked up for the week ending Sunday, March 25, 2018:
