Two More Six-Figure Sales Help Keep the Early 2019 Domain Sales Season on Track 

I was away covering the 2019 NamesCon Global Conference last week in Las Vegas so I will be bringing you up to date with a double dose of sales data this time out. Our latest all extension Top 20 Sales Chart is headlined by a pair of six-figure sales that closed since my last report on January 23. Joe Uddeme at NameExperts.com claimed the top spot with C5.com at $135,000 while VPN.com broker Sharjil Saleem filled the #2 hole with a $105,000 sale of Crete.com

We expect to chart several more transactions at the six-figure level in the next few weeks as sales made in the NamesCon live domain auction begin closing (the top five sales in that auction all drew six-figure bids, led by OL.com at $900,000, Leads.com at $435,000 and DomainNames.com at $370,000).

Sedo claimed the #3 position with the week's biggest ccTLD sale - Play.de at €30,000 ($34,200) - as well as #4 with PaulValentine.com ($27,360) and a share of #5 with Pay21.com at $25,000. They went on to sweep 15 of 20 chart entries overall. Nametra.com shared that #5 slot with a $25,000 sale of their own for SetPay.com.

.Coms piled up 14 charted sales with James Booth's BQDN.com and Brian Harbin's GritBrokerage.com joining forces to aid that onslaught with their co-brokerage of #8 YIG.com at $20,000 (a sale they put together while at NamesCon).

The ccTLDs also had a good outing, taking all six of the remaining places on the Big Board including Sedo's $21,660 sale of #7 LUZ.es. Sedo accounted for all of the rest of the country code sales except one - GritBrokerage's $10,000 sale of #17 (tie) Fifth.co. That left no room at the inn for the non .com gTLDs. 

Here is how the sales leaders stacked for the week ending Sunday, February 3, 2019:
