Four Domain Sales Totaling Over $1 Million Lead New Chart - Six of Top 10 are Non .Coms

In the current domain aftermarket boom,  we've noticed that while the rising tide may not have lifted ALL boats this year, it has certainly lifted a lot of them! In addition to the eye-popping numbers from perennial powerhouse .com, a number of other TLDs are showing surprising strength. That was evident again over the past two weeks when six of the ten highest reported sales were non .com domains.   

While .com took its customary spot at the top of our latest bi-weekly all extension Top 20 Sales Chart with Braden Pollock's $400,000 sale of Overview.com via  LegalBrandMarketing.com, six of the next nine were non .com domains. The highest of those was Sedo's $300,000 sale of #2 Binance.ae  

and Park.io's $230,000 sale of #3 Mint.io. Park.io also filled the #5 spot with Factory.io at $88,000 while Flippa's $99,000 sale of #4 3L.com was sandwiched in between the two .io heavyweights. By the way, that $300,000 sale of Binance.ae ties the May sale of ETH.co for the biggest country code sale reported year to date (our YTD ccTLD Top 100 Sales Chart is the second chart on the page linked to).

All told, the .coms still piled up the most chart entries, 12 of 20 overall, while the ccTLDs and non .com gTLDs claimed four spots apiece. Two from the latter category landed in the top ten with DNGear selling #8 Alliance.xyz for $50,000 and Dynadot moving #10 ETH.green for $45,000. DNGear put two more .xyz domains on the second half of the elite list, but that's where the .coms caught up, taking eight of the last ten entries - seven of those from Sedo (who took 11 places overall) and the other from DomainMarket.com where #12 AntDigital.com sold for $34,000

In addition to the closed, paid in-full transactions that are eligible for our charts, many other very big transactions are getting done that involve installment payments (very common at the upper end of the market). Elliot Silver at DomainInvesting.com reported a notable one - a $3 million deal for Place.com. The domain is still in Escrow so no word on when a transfer will be finalized, but given that the purchasing company is valued at $1 billion, nothing is likely to knock that one off track.
