GetMovies.com and Major.com Give Sedo the Week's Two Best Domain Sales

by Ron Jackson
  

There were no six figure sales reported this week but it wasn't exactly Spring Break for the domain business. Sedo.com landed a nice 1-2 punch with GetMovies.com and Major.com leading a pack of 14 solid five-figure sales. One of those, Ohio.org, was the highest reported Global Contenders sale so far in 2006.

Sedo hit the Daily Double with #1 GetMovies.com at an even $75,000 and #2 Major.com at 48,000 ($58,070). Those sales helped Sedo rack up seven entries on our new Top 20 list while SnapNames.com snagged eight slots on the Big Board.

Loco.com locked up the #3 position with JW Media acquiring the domain for $50,000 from DigiPawn.com. Moniker.com/DomainSystems.com then entered the fray, taking back to back entries with #4 Sbort.com (Welsh spelling of "sport") at $40,300 and #5 PetNation.com at $30,350. 

Next up at #6 was that big GC domain, Ohio.org, acquired by Chad Wright's Webquest.com for $30,000 in a private transaction. That was the year's biggest reported sale in the Global Contenders category which includes the non-.com gTLD's; .net, .org, .biz and .info.

.Com is still the undisputed heavyweight champ of course and this week the world's most popular extension walked off with 16 of the 20 chart entries. Three .co.uk country code domains joined Ohio.org in the other four slots. The British power trio included #14 Duck.co.uk at 6,000 ($10,455), #17 BibleStudy.co.uk at 7,500 ($9,074) and #20 Performance.co.uk at 4,600 ($8,016). All three of those were sold at Sedo.

.Com's tear through the first ten continued with #7 BusinessBuyers.com, sold by CoffeeAM.com to a public company in England for $25,200 in a private transaction. BuzzTracker.com followed at #8 after going for $23,000 at Sedo. Then SnapNames took the spotlight with the two best domains from their sales roster; #9 MORealEstate.com ($21,250) and #10 TheDog.com ($17,251)

Here's a look at the complete all extension leader board for the week ending Sunday, April 9:

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)

For the second week in a row, .org dominated the Global Contenders competition. The big headline was Webquest.com's $30,000 acquisition of Ohio.org in a private transaction. That set a new high water mark for all .org, .net, .info and .biz sales reported so far in 2006. .Org wound up taking 3 of the first 5 positions on our new GC Top 20 chart and 11 of 20 entries overall.

.Net also fared well this week with 8 charted domains, including #2 JobFinder.net, sold for $7,326 at SnapNames. Other .net winners included #4 FreeWeb.net ($4,050), #6 Postmark.net ($2,900) and #7 Wart.net ($2,662)

.Org's other standouts included #3 ICAO.org ($5,700), #5 Roofing.org ($3,600) and #8 Eole.org ($2,150). All of those sold at SnapNames, a venue that swept all but four of the 20 chart positions.

.Info got on board with PPCIncome.com's $1,500 sale of ChaCha.info which tied for the 15th position. .Biz came up empty handed this time out. Here's a complete look at the Global Contenders list for the week ending April 9:

There were 11 more 4-figure sales just off the chart. Afternic had the biggest one with WealthManagementServices.net at $1,288. Sedo accounted for another with Xpad.net at $1,000 and SnapNames sold the other nine including LawEnforcement.org ($1,261), Flex.org ($1,253) and Gertrude.org ($1,250)

Country Codes

Great Britain's .co.uk reigned over the Country Codes this week, sweeping the top three spots on our new ccTLD chart. Those three domains, Duck.co.uk, BibleStudy.co.uk and Performance.co.uk were all strong enough to crash the Top 20 all extension chart as well (as you saw earlier in our report). The UK trio helped Sedo run off with 11 of 12 chart entries this week.

Germany's .de also did very well by charting 6 domains in a row after Italy's Teatro.it ("theater" in Italian) took the #4 position at 4,500 ($5,444). The .de run began with #5 Geschenk-idee.de ("gift idea" in German) at 3,000 ($3,629) and #6 eGames.de at 2,800 ($3,387).

The surprise of the week was a pair of chart entries from .vc, a seldom seen extension that represents tiny Saint Vincent and the Grenadines. AA.vc and Poker.vc did the honors, selling for $2,000 and $1,655 respectively. Sedo sold the 2-letter domain while Afternic accounted for the poker name.

Here's a look at the complete Country Code Chart for the week ending April 9:

The always popular poker keyword sold in another extension this week as well. Poker.sh (Saint Helena ccTLD) went for $1,500 at Afternic. That venue also sold VietNamNet.tv for $600. Meanwhile, sales reports continue to trickle in from the recent Canadian .ca drops. Sibername.com sold a trio at 500 Canadian dollars each ($437) that included xtreme.ca, NNC.ca and FraserDowns.ca.
