A Half Dozen 6-Figure Sales Including YTD's Top ccTLD and Non .Com gTLD Sales Light Up New Charts

Over the past couple of weeks we saw the summer's biggest display of six-figure fireworks. Four of the six that reached that level were .coms but we also logged the biggest ccTLD sale of the year to date as well as the highest sale reported so far this year in the Non .Com gTLD camp (you can review all of the 2023 YTD Top 100 Sales Charts here

A $275,000 sale of Plans.com made via SquadHelp set the pace this time around the track. As DomainInvesting.com noted in an August 24 post, Squadhelp released the sales details on their X (formerlyTwitter) feed, noting that the sale was made within 7 days ot the name being listed on their new Ultra Premium Marketplace.

The runner-up spot on our latest bi-weekly all extension Top 20 Sales Chart went to a $258,888 sale of Stack.ai, the year's new #1 ccTLD sale that Terrains.com completed with the help of GoDaddy/Afternic broker Velizar Sofranov who represented the buyer. This sale actually occurred in April but we just learned the details from the seller this week. 

Sedo and DomainBooth.com shaed the #3 slot after Sedo moved Swiper.com for $150,000 and James Booth at DomainBooth booked the same amount for Throne.com. James was just getting warmed up with that one. He went on to claim five places on the Big Board including four of the top ten with a $100,000 sale of #6 Statistic.com in that glittering group. 

The year's biggest non .com gTLD sale reported to date rounded out the first five. That was a $118,000 sale of IO.net that Mansour Elseify of DomainsNext.com made with the help of GoDaddy broker Ray Shannon that we previously told you about in our Lowdown section.

The .coms swept 15 of the 20 chart entries with a $40,000 sale of #10 Fruta.com, made by the Castello Brothers (Michael and David) via Sedo, helping the .com cause. The non .com gTLDs took four places on the honor roll and the ccTLDs were uncharacteristically held to one (though having that be the category's biggest sale of the year to date made up for any disappointment about that).
