Mega Sale of Medidata.com Tops This Week's Domain Sales Chart and Ranks #3 Year to Date 

Master domain sales sleuth George Kirikos uncovered another blockbuster this week - a $600,000 purchase of the domain Medidata.com made by public company Medidata Solutions Inc., a provider of cloud-based software solutions for clinical research in life sciences. Kirikos reported the sale, made in the first quarter of this year, in a post on his recently launched FreeSpeech.com blog. As he has done so many times in the past, Kirikos uncovered the sale while examining an SEC filing (page 14) made by the company. Over the years we have sent so many hat tips George's way for finding eye popping sales, we probably should just give him the hat! 

In addition to topping our latest week's all extension Top 20 Sales Chart, Medidata.com now ranks #3 on our Year to Date Top 100 Sales Chart. It is also one of biggest sales of a "coined term" domain (this one a merging of the words medical and data) that we've ever seen. 

Sedo filled the next two spots on this week's leader board with Presale.com at $45,444 and the week's biggest ccTLD sale, Hero.eu at $32,480. Rounding out the first five are ApexMoon.com's $30,000 sale of Druid.com and a $27,000 sale of Atiko.com made through Michael Mann's DomainMarket.com.

The .coms swept 14 of the 20 chart entries with the ccTLDs and non .com gTLDs claiming thee slots each. Two of those country code sales settled in the first six after OptimalNames.com moved Voice.io for $25,000 via GoDaddy. Sedo accounted for all three of the non. com gTLDs names on the Big Board with #13 (tie) Happy.info at $10,000 leading that trio. Sedo hit the honor roll like a hurricane, piling up 16 of the 20 entries overall including a sweep of the final 14 entries. 

Here's a look at how all of the sales leaders stacked for the week ending Sunday, May 12, 2019:
