FactoryDirect.com Tops This Week's Domain Sales Chart With Multiple gTLDs and ccTLDs Also in the Mix 

The past week's domain sales activity was concentrated in the mid-range of the market with variety replacing high end sales in the spotlight on our latest all extension Top 20 Sales Chart. Joe Uddeme at NameExperts.com nailed down the top spot on the elite list with his $50,000 sale of FactoryDirect.com.

The .coms went on to claim four of first five spots on the Big Board and 13 places overall, including the $29,888 sale of #3 IdentidadDigital.com ("digital identity" in Spanish) at Michael Mann's DomainMarket and a a pair of sales at Sedo - #4 Lads.com at $26,219 and # 5 LiftLab.com at $22,500 (a name they sold for AbdulBasit.com).

Sandwiched among those .coms was the highest of the week's three charted non .com gTLD sales - #2 Buy.game, a new gTLD that Sedo sold for $29,999. The other two from that category were also sold by Sedo with #8 2050.org going for $11,400 and another new gTLD, New.video, going for $7,000.

The ccTLDs also got into the act with four chart entries of their own, led by Sedo's sales of #6 Ravensburger-Verlag.de at $15,000 and #10 Cover.ca at $10,000. Sedo logged the other two country code sales as well.

Everything else went to the .coms, including Undeveloped.com's $7,250 sale of #14 JetAgency.com on behalf of seller Mark Levine from DomainTheory.com.   

There was also one very big sale we heard about this week, but since the exact price was subject to a non disclosure agreement it is not one that can be charted. Manish Lunja of BrandPros.com, who served as the buyer's broker, let us know he was involved in closing the sale of IZ.com at a price in the mid six-figure range (we were given the exact price but agreed to honor the NDA). Lunja said it was the highest sale made to date by an India-based broker.

Here is how the sales leaders stacked for the week ending Sunday, February 24, 2019:
