Trio of 6-Figure Sales Totaling Over $1 Million Fill Top Spots on This Week's Domain Sales Chart

Just a couple of days after our last bi-weekly domain sales report, we broke the news that Kate Buckley at BuckleyMedia.com had closed a blockbuster $803,025 sale of Engage.com. Since then I've been looking forward to the next sales column (this one) so we could officially place that big sale on our charts. In addition to being the #1 sale reported over the past fortnight (by far), Engage.com also ranks as the second biggest publicly reported sale of the year to date, trailing only the $1,080,000 sale of Bullish.com in November.

 

A pair of $100,000 sales completes a six-figure trio at the top of our latest all-extension Top 20 Sales Chart. Teammates Brian Harbin and

Michael Law at GritBrokerage.com booked one of those, collecting their 100K for JHX.com. Perpetual powerhouse Sedo logged the other, with Spectacle.com doing the honors there.

While the .coms enjoyed their usual dominance, piling up 13 of the 20 chart entries, the ccTLDs also had a a couple of outstanding weeks. Six country code domain crashed the Big Board including a pair that rounded out the top five sales on the elite list. Veteran broker Mark Ghoriafi, who recently launched his own firm at MrPremium.com, has gotten the company off to a fast start with a stack of impressive sales led by his latest, #4 Bank.io at $80,000. That also ranks as one of the ten biggest ccTLD sales reported so far this year. Bank.io was the key name in a group of .io domains Mark moved in a deal that crossed the $100,000 mark.

Sedo, who has always been the 800-pound gorilla in the ccTLD space, put five more on the leader board, led by #5 FV.de at 58,000 ($70,760). They went on to earn 13 chart entries overall to lead all venues.

The non .com gTLDs were limited to one chart entry, but they made it count. DomainSearch.club sold #10 My.club for $45,000 in a sale that also ranks among 2020's ten biggest sales to date in that category. 

Everything else went to the .coms with EmpireNames.com helping them run up the score by selling #6 Newz.com for $70,000 and #7 Roze.com for $68,000. Roze.com was especially interesting as it had been acquired in March for just $2,600 - talk about a great flip! Michael Mann at DomainMarket.com also had a winning Daily Double ticket, selling #15 Nimix.com for $25,400 and using Sedo to move #16 Cardeo.com for $20,000

Here's how all of the sales leaders stacked up for the two weeks ending Sunday, December 20, 2020:
