Kate Buckley Books Top Spot on This Week's Sales Chart with a $91,000 One-Word .Com - ccTLDs Also Have Reason to Celebrate

We have a couple of weeks worth of sales data to catch up with this time around the track. Due to the current corona virus pandemic, many of us, including a lot of our sales data providers, are having to deal with a lot more than domains this month. So, we are publishing this column every other week in April (on the 1st, 15th and 29th). We will then see how things stand the first week of May and proceed accordingly from there, with plans to return to our usual weekly release schedule as soon as possible. 

Over the past two weeks, solid mid-range sales have commanded the spotlight with the highest of those being posted by Kate Buckley at Buckley Media. Kate, who has made many appearances at the top of our charts, was back in familiar surroundings this week as her $91,182 sale of Therapists.com earned her yet another bow from the #1 position on our all extension Top 20 Sales Chart.

Sedo then stepped up to the plate and rang up four chart entries in a row, make a particularly big score with #2 UHR. de ("clock" in German) at €70,000 ($76,300). That is one of the five biggest country code sales reported so far this year. Sedo put another ccTLD in the #5 hole, banking €29,750 ($32,428) for WI.de, giving Germany's popular country code domain a pair of big hits. Sedo had plenty of solid .com sales in their quiver too, including #3 Cappuccino.com at $49,000 and #4 Searcher.com at $40,000. They went on to sweep 15 of 20 entries overall.

The .coms also went 15 for 20, with Michael Mann's DomainMarket.com boosting that group's total with a $30,000 sale of StellarHealth.com. Logan Flatt's Media Code LLC added another feather to the .com cap with #9 (tie) InvestorWire.com at $15,000. Namoxy.com chipped in too, using GoDaddy to move #19 BoostFactory.com at $8,888.

The ccTLDs earned four spots of the elite list with Sedo posting three of those, including the two in the top ten I noted above. The fourth one - #11 Unicorn.io - changed hands for $14,988 in a private transaction.

The non .com gTLDs were limited to one place on the elite list. That went to Sedo for their $10,000 sale of #14 (tie) YJJT.org.
