Six-Figure Domain Sales Bring Holiday Cheer to DNJournal's Latest Top 20 Chart

When it comes to domain sales, the holiday-filled second half of December is typically one of the slowest stretches of the year but there are some more nice numbers on our latest bi-weekly all extension Top 20 Sales Chart. We didn't expect to match our previous report covering the first half of the month (that included a 7-figure sale and four that hit six figures) but two more 6-figure sales did arrive to light up the leader board.

The highest of those was a $260,000 sale of Poe.com by Greg Ricks at PerfectName.com. The interesting thing about this one, as Andrew Allemann reported at DomainNameWire, is that this was the second time Ricks has owned and parted with 

that domain. He first bought it for $3,200 in 2002, then, after letting it go, acquired it again for $18,500 in 2009. Proving patience is a virtue, Ricks kept it until a buyer that recognized the value of the domain  stepped up with a fair offer. That buyer turned out to be Quora.com who also deserves congratulations for acquiring such a great asset.

SnapNames also soared into six-figure range with a nice $102,499 sale of #2 PutLocker.com. Sedo rounded out the first four with EVY.com at 46,000 ($55,200) and Polling.com at $45,000. Sedo also earned two-thirds of the #5 spot that is shared by a trio of $35,000 sales. Sedo scored with a pair of 3-letter domains, FDV.com and FTP.org and Elad Nof completed the threesome with Workia.com.

The .coms claimed their usual lion's share of the spoils, taking 13 of the 20 chart entries overall. SnapNames added three more to the .com haul with their sister site, NameJet, accounting for another (#9 FindingDulcinea.com at $26,101).

The ccTLDs claimed four places on the Big Board, led by a couple of $20,000 .co sales at Magnum Domains that put Arbor.co and Organica.co in a tie for the #11 slot.

The non .com gTLDs produced a nice trifecta that included a $29,998 sale of #9 Reflect.net by Braden Pollock at LegalBrandMarketing.com that gave this group a second entry on the top half of the elite list. Sedo completed the trio with #20 Spain.net at $15,999.
