Bombs Away! Two Blockbuster Domain Sales Totaling Over $5 Million Take Top Spots On Our Latest Chart

Our last report, two weeks ago, was the only one of the entire summer that did not have a seven-figure sale at the top of our our bi-weekly all extension Top 20 Sales Chart. Well, we more than made up for that this time around the track, with two seven-figure blasts that both rank among the six biggest sales reported so far this year. The biggest explosion came from a $3,144,000 sale of Floor.com that was made by the longtime industry pros at BrandForce.com. James Iles at JamesNames.com and Eliot Silver at Domaining Investing.com filled in the details on the year's 3rd biggest publicly reported sale to date when the story broke on September 22.

News of the second seismic sale in seven days just came today and, as has so often been the case, the source was George Kirikos who found the price paid for NFT.com earlier this year while examining Canadian securities filings. That number was a cool $2 million, putting NFT.com in a tie for the year's 5th biggest sale to date with Sedo's sale of Angel.com in April. George also let me know about a previously unreported 2020 sale of GoingPublic.com that he found over the weekend. That name went for $37,695.

A pair of nice six-figure sales took the next two spots on this week's chart. Veteran investor/broker James Booth used Squadhelp to close a $180,000 sale of #3 BetU.com and Sedo Senior Broker Dave Evanson logged yet another big sale with #4 Fume.com at $160,000. As many of you  will recall, Dave is the one who handled that $2 million sale of Angel.com noted above. Sedo also rounded out the first five on the elite list with an $88,000 sale of NFTChain.com.

We got another nice influx of sales data from NameJet and SnapNames as the sister sites (both owned by Web.com) issued a list of their top sales from July and August. Five of those landed on this week's top 20, led by NameJet's $81,610 sale of #6 BestShop.com. The .coms swept 16 of the 20 chart entries, also getting a boost from DomainMarket.com's $35,000 sale of #13 (tie) Cotino.com and a $30,000 sale of MetaFB.com that James Jean made through Sedo. 

The non .com gTLDs claimed three spots on the Big Board with two of those going to DNGear's Swetha Yenugula who sold #8 Quest.xyz for $69,888 and #18 Agora.xyz for $27,888. As Andrew Allemann reported at DomainNameWire.com today, Swetha has created her own cottage industry selling .xyz domains, doing especially well with end user sales to companies in the blockchain space. You will seem many other solid sales from DNGear as you proceed through this report. The other non .com gTLD chart entry went to International Business Network who sold #15  (tie) MetaRooms.net for $30,000.

The ccTLDs were limited to one chart entry this time out, a nice $35,000 sale of #13 (tie) Mill.co at Sedo. The country code domains did ring up a half-dozen five-figure sales though as you will see on the supplementary chart of five-figure sales that follows the Top 20 leader board. 

Here is how all of the sales leaders stacked up for the two weeks ending Sunday, September 26, 2021:
