On.com  Sells for $635,000 at Moniker/DomainSystems in the Biggest Domain Sale Reported Thus Far in 2006 

by Ron Jackson
  

A new heavyweight champion was crowned this week as On.com became the top domain sale reported thus far in 2006. With the combined power of being both a rare two-letter domain and one that is also a common word, the $635,000 price tag looks quite reasonable in today's market. Moniker.com/DomainSystems.com was more than just the venue where the domain was sold (to a buyer who wishes to remain private). Moniker CEO Monte Cahn told us his company was also the owner of this domain.

Cahn said Moniker had recently purchased the name for an internal marketing project, but decided to sell it when this appropriate offer was received. Cahn added that PremiumTraffic.com will handle the parking and management of On.com until the new owner completes development of the domain.


The #2 slot on our new Top 20 goes to VideoClip.com, a domain that sold for $38,500 at Sedo.com. That was one of five entries Sedo placed on the Big Board and four of those landed in the first ten, including #10 Casino.hk, a Hong Kong domain that went for $15,000 in the week's largest country code sale. 

SnapNames.com also turned in a powerhouse performance this week, sweeping 10 of the 20 positions on the leader board, including #3 Doge.com at $20,550 and #4 CicuitCity.com, a typo that went for $20,250. Afternic.com landed a solid one-two punch with #5 NudeWives.com at $20,000 and #6 (tie) MO.org at $18,000. Moniker/DomainSystems also had multiple entries, with their $12,850 sale of #11 SportsMemorabilia.com kicking off the second half of the chart.

The only other non .com listed on this week's Top 20 was a very impressive IDN sale. Dave Wrixon of Chinese Domains Ltd. sent #14 東京.net ("Tokyo" in Japanese Kanji characters) to Bill Winans of IDNBrokers.com for $10,000 in a sale that was made at DNForum.com

14 domains sold for at least five figures this week. Here's a look at the complete chart for the week ending Sunday, March 12:

Keep in mind that these are the highest value sales that have been reported to us in the past week. This column is meant to be an educational tool, not a complete list documenting ALL high value domain sales. Such a list is impossible to produce because many sales are kept private at the insistence of buyers, sellers or both.

Global Contenders (.biz, .info, .net & .org)

A sweet two-letter .org, MO.org headlined the Global Contenders list this week after going for $18,000 at Afternic. However, .net easily won the overall numbers game by racking up 14 of the 20 chart entries, including that $10,000 IDN we talked about earlier, 東京.net . .Net took the next three positions as well with #3 AntiAging.net ($5,027), #4 Domicilio.net ($3,688) and #5 VOIPTel.net ($3,619). .Org then returned with #6 Hug.org at $3,333. SnapNames sold both AntiAging.net and Hug.org and went on to claim 11 positions on the GC Top 20.

.Biz and .Info were also represented this week. .Biz scored with PartyBackgammon.biz, a domain that tied FBB.net for the 7th position at $2,500 each. Both of those domains were sold at Sedo. .Info has two chart entries, #9 Los-Angeles.info (sold for 2,000 = $2,402 in a private sale) and Daylight.info, tied for 14th after selling for $1,500 at Sedo.

Country Codes

Hong Kong raked in the biggest ccTLD pot this week, with Casino.hk going for $15,000 at Sedo. Speaking of big winners, Sedo swept all 12 positions on the new Country Code chart! Great Britain took the #2 slot with Educare.co.uk at 4,000 ($6,985).

Germany's .de is the world's second most popular extension and that pedigree showed through this week as the ccTLD rang up 7 charted domains, including numbers 3, 4 and 5 in a row. Zigarette.de inhaled 5,800 ($6,968), Prinzessin.de ("princess" in German) produced 5,000 ($6,007) and Aktien-Club.de ("stock club" in German) paid a 4,500 ($5,406) dividend.

America's country code, .US, was back again this week with #6 WebSolutions.us selling for a healthy $4,250. Taiwan and Laos also made it into the spotlight. #9 Presents.tw scored for the former, going for 1,950 ($2,343), while Hotels.la did the job for the latter, booking 1,400 ($1,682). Here's a look at the complete Country Code chart for the week ending March 12:
