Biggest Austrian ccTLD Sale Ever Reported Clocks in at #1 On Our Weekly Top 20 

As you can imagine, the holiday season is a difficult time to gather sales information since the offices of many of our data contributors have either closed or are operating with a skeleton staff until the New Year. So let me start off with a big thank you to those who went out of their way to get information in to us this week. To them and to all of you, I hope you are having a great holiday season and are ready  for another record breaking year in 2008!

A pair of country code domains head our next to last Top 20 chart of 2007 and the #1 name is a real blockbuster. In fact, at 408,000 ($590,949) Job.at is the biggest Austrian country code sale ever reported. The owners of Immobilien.net (Austrian's largest real estate listing firm) sold the domain to Visions4Tomorrow. Immobilien.net co-founder Markus Ertler said the company was never able to complete plans to develop the name because of the time required to run their real estate business, so they reluctantly let it go when the buyer stepped forward with a suitable offer.

By Ron Jackson

The #2 domain was another generic ccTLD gem - Veiling.nl ("auction" in Dutch), that chalked up a nice 46,000 ($66,627) sale for the Netherlands extension at Sedo.com. Sedo put three more country codes on the Big Board and wound up with ten entries overall to lead all venues. 

The AfternicDLS also had a strong outing with six charted domains including three on the upper half of the elite list (the AfternicDLS sold one of their names through Sedo resulting in them sharing the entry for #16 Pursuing .com). #4 Personified.com led the charge for the AfternicDLS at $35,000

NameJet.com also had multiple winners, landing a trio of names in the Top 20. #7 ChiliDogs.com led the pack there, wolfing down $18,100. As usual, .com had the most chart entries with 14. Aside from the five ccTLDs on the board, the only other non .com to earn a spot was #19 (tie) ESO.net at $7,800.

 Here is how all of the top sellers stacked up for the week ending Sunday, December 23:

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. Our procedure for verifying the accuracy of domain sales reports is available here.

For the many newcomers entering the domain industry we also want to point out that the reasons why a domain name sells for a certain price can be varied and are not always clear to those who are unfamiliar with the domain market. If you do not understand why specific domain names command the prices they do, you are likely to make unwise domain registrations or purchases. We highly recommend that you do some basic research before you buy anything! As a starting point we have built a sister site specifically for you at NameNewbie.com.
