3-Letter Domains Re-Stake Claim to Top of Sales Chart - Group Posts 4 of 6 Biggest Sales on Elite List 

For the past 20 years, 3-letter .coms have been a consistent favorite in the domain aftermarket. Over the past couple of years they have been over-shadowed by a rush to secure top tier one-word domains, but the 3Ls are back in a big way on our latest bi-weekly all-extension Top 20 Sales Chart. Four of the six biggest sales reported over the past two weeks were 3-letter domains and three of those four were .coms. It was unusual to have no six or seven-figure sales reported this time around the track, but the number of transactions was the highest we have seen all year in one two-week period.

NameJet's $57,611 sale of ODC.com led the hit parade, followed by the week's biggest

non .com sale, CasinoApps.org at $42,500 via Sedo. Sedo also had a pair of those three-letter domain sales, scoring with #3 JPR.com at $40,999 and selling #5 PFP.xyz at $34,999 for DomainBooth.com. SnapNames completed the 3-letter quartet on the top half of the Big Board with #6 DNZ.com at $34,003

The .coms went on to pile up 13 of the 20 chart entries including Mike DeLucia's $25,000 sale of #9 (tie) NFTBook.com through DAN.com. Mike had hand registered that domain for just $6.99 less than two years ago! That is the kind of ROI anyone would love a chance to celebrate. 

 

The non .com gTLDs also had another strong outing, landing five spots on the honor roll, three of them filled by .xyz domains and two by .orgs. NameJet logged one of the .org sales with #7 KidneyUrology.com at $32,000. Meanwhile, DNZodiac helped the .xyz cause with a $24,999 sale of #11 Affinity.xyz, as did Swetha.xyz with her $19,888 sale of #18 (tie) Bailout.xyz.
