NDA Keeps Multi-Million $ Sale of Chocolate.com from Topping This Week's Chart But Gives Broker Kate Buckley Another Big Win 

Buckley Media Founder & CEO Kate Buckley has just closed another major domain sale after brokering a multi-million dollar deal for Chocolate.com. The exact price paid could not be released due to an NDA so, unlike many or Kate's other big wins over the past couple of years (including Rate.com, Refi.com, Sleeping.com and Snoring.com, to name just a few) we won't be able to chart this one. That in no way diminishes the significance of a sale that Kate told us closed in the mid to low 7-figure range. Seems to me that would make somewhere around $3.5-$4 million a pretty good guess. That is an altitude few have ever had a chance to fly at, so kudos to Kate!

With Chocolate.com off the board, Sedo was able to claim the top spot on our latest weekly all extension Top 20 Sales Chart with their $50,000 sale of Navibank.com. They took four of the next five spots as well, missing only #2 that went to Canavas Media for their $23,000 sale of REK.com. Canavas scored again with #7 Grew.com at $10,800.

Otherwise, with only two more exceptions, it was all Sedo's show. Their haul included all four ccTLD sales that earned chart honors. That quartet was led by a pair German .de domains - #5 Hot.de at $16,751 and #6 Vergleichsportal.de at $13,560.

The non .com gTLDs were limited to just one spot - the .GLOBAL Registry's $8,000 sale of #14 (tie) ARE.global.

The .coms swept everything else, taking 15 of 20 entries overall. Vegas Options LLC contributed to the .com cause with their $10,000 sale of #9 HistoryOfTheGame.com.
