A Quartet of Six-Figure Sales Led by a ccTLD Took Center Stage on This Week's Domain Sales Chart

The domain aftermarket continued on its merry way over the past two weeks  with four more six-figure sales reported. That quartet was led by a big ccTLD sale at Sedo where Link.co changed hands for $162,000. In addition to topping our latest bi-weekly all-extension Top 20 Sales Chart, that ranks as the 2nd biggest country code sale reported so far this year (the YTD ccTLD Top 100 Sales Chart is the second chart on the page linked to). 

 

A trio of .coms also smashed the six-figure barrier. Greg Ricks at PerfectName.com posted the second biggest sale after using Afternic to close a $161,719 deal for FSM.com. The #3 hole was filled by NameJet/Snapnames who 

auctioned off eShop.com for $148,134 in a deal James Iles nicely detailed on his blog Friday. Rounding out the Fab Four is NameMarket.com's $125,000 sale of ExpiredDomains.com. That transaction was closed in September but was just reported to us with documentation this week.

The .coms went on to pile up 12 of the 21 chart entries (the extra spot resulted from a tie for the final position) but the ccTLDs also proved to be a force to be reckoned with as they racked up a half dozen places on the Big Board. In addition to the chart topper, Link.co, two others crashed the top ten. Logan Flatt at Media Code LLC banked $49,995 for #7 ETH.gg and Sedo collected $48,000 for #9 Grundsteuerwert.de. Yet another country code domain topped the second half of the chart. That was a $32,000 sale of Alpha.co.uk that BuyDomainNames.co.uk made through GoDaddy. Grit Brokerage completed the ccTLD onslaught with a pair of solid .co sales.

 

The non .com gTLDs made there presence known as well, taking three places on the elite list. A pair of .org sales at Sedo, including #8 Psilocybin.org at $49,000, were joined by a $22,000 sale of #16 A.company that AZ.company purchased via Dynadot.

Before we go to the charts, I also want to tell you about some interesting information dug up by the master of the craft, George Kirikos. As detailed on his Twitter feed, George found compelling evidence that suggests Boxing.com may have been sold for $1,150,000. An SEC filing revealed Live Current Media sold an unnamed domain for that price March 22 and other bits of information point to the name most likely being Boxing.com but we can't yet say that with 100% certainty. George found yet another one involving Bowman.com that appears to have been sold for $281,000. The only reason that isn't being charted yet is that, as of this writing, the domain is still in an Escrow.com holding account awaiting transfer.

Back to the business at hand, here's how all of the sales leaders stacked up for the two weeks ending Sunday, April 11, 2021:
