A Trio of 6-Figure Sales and  Ongoing .AI Surge Stand Out on the Latest Domain Sales Chart

There are a couple of clear story lines on our latest bi-weekly all extension Top 20 Sales Chart. One being that, with a trio of six-figure sales at the top, high end sales are still getting done even though we are entering summer - a season when sales activity often softens. The other is the continuing strength of .AI sales as they continue to benefit from the explosion of  artificial intelligence start ups. 

.AI domains swept seven spots on the latest leader board including the #1 position with Namecheap's report of a $120,000 sale of Fantasy.ai. Three others reached the top half of the honor roll - #5 Hollywood.ai at

$65,000, #8 Meld.ai at $47,500 and #10 Inventive.ai at $44,900, .AI helped ccTLDs claim ten spots overall, two more than the .coms. The other country code names that crashed the Big Board were a pair of strong .de sales at Sedo and a $52,000 sale of #7 Fire.co made by Efty.com Founder Doron Vermaat.

That left just two spots for the non .com gTLDs but one of those was the third highest sale reported year to date in that category, #2 (tie) Open.network at $100,000. As DomainInvesting.com reported, the original registrant of that domain, James Jean, made the sale on the Efty platform after holding the name for 10 years. The other big win from this group came from Sedo's $20,000 sale of #17 NYA.net.

Sedo also posted the highest reported .com sale with #2 (tie) RKX.com at $100,000. Shane Cultra also helped the .com cause with a $45,888 sale of #9 YourLogoHere.com via Atom.com. Multimedia Manager chipped in too with an $18,988 sale of #18 CobraKing.com made through Afternic.  

Here is how all of the leaders stacked up for the two weeks ending Sunday, June 9, 2024:
