USAuto.com Motors to the Top of the Weekly Domain Sales Chart

by Ron Jackson
  

Over the past couple of years the domain market has been so hot that "taking a breather" has been a rare thing indeed. This week would  probably qualify though, at least in terms of there being none of the eye-popping six-figure sales that we've grown accustomed to. The sweet spot this time out has moved to the market's mid-range with 17 solid five-figure sales and hundreds of deals in the four-digit range. 

For the second straight week, SnapNames.com finished first on our all-extension Top 20 chart, taking the checkered flag with USAuto.com at $40,001. Overall, SnapNames landed seven domains on the Big Board.

By the way, those of you who are in Los Angeles for this week's DomainFest Global conference will see SnapNames VP Mason Cole talking about the vibrant domain aftermarket during a session I will be moderating Thursday afternoon (Feb. 1). The all-star panel will also include Dan Warner, COO at Fabulous.com and Sedo.com CEO and co-founder Tim Schumacher. Schumacher's company placed more names on our leader board than any other venue this week - nine in all, including #4 VirtualLondon.com at $30,000

Afternic.com was the only other venue with multiple entries. They hit the daily double with #2 EnterpriseMobile.com at $34,000 and #9 PrivacyControls.com at $15,000. Afternic's NameMedia sister site, BuyDomains.com also made the elite list with #13 WasteIndustries.com picking up $13,800

As usual, .com was the dominant extension, taking all but three slots on the Big Board. The other positions went to a pair of country codes and a three-letter .org that cracked the five-figure mark, #15 TVA.org, a name that sold for $10,099 at SnapNames. Sedo accounted for both of the ccTLD sales, banking 14,000 ($18,150) for #6 Bloggen.de ("blogging" in German) and 5,000 ($9,812) for #18 Contractor.co.uk.

Here's a look at the complete Top 20 for the week ending Sunday, Jan. 28:

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, .mobi, .net & .org)

Last week, the .nets swept the top three spots on our Global Contenders Top 20. This week the .orgs returned the favor. TVA.org led the charge for that extension with a $10,099 sale at SnapNames that also put that domain on our all extension leader board. HealthFood.org and BJM.org tied for the runner-up spot at $3,500 each. .Org went on to rack up 5 of the top 7 domains.

Though .net didn't make its first appearance until ElectronicPayments.net ($3,288) showed up in the #4 slot, that extension just about owned the rest of the chart, taking 16 of 21 entries overall (there was one extra position due to a three-way tie for the final position).

BuyDomains was the strongest venue in this category, racking up 11 of the 21 chart positions. Here's how all of the GC top sellers stacked up for the week ending January 28:

Country Codes

Bloggen.de ("blogging" in German) gave Germany's .de ccTLD an easy win in this week's country code race. That domain sold for 14,000 ($18,150) and almost doubled the very respectable 5,000 ($9,812) taken in by #2 Contractor.co.uk. Both of those domains were sold at Sedo, a venue that traditionally owns this chart. Sedo swept all but two of the positions on the new Top 20. 

There was a tremendous amount of variety on this week's list with 11 different countries represented. The European Union's .eu had the most entries by far, seven in all, led by #6 Numerica.eu, sold at InternetProperties.eu for $3,000. Great Britain's .co.uk charted three domains and .de had two. 

The remaining 8 positions were split among 8 different countries, led by Hong Kong in the #3 spot with Online-Casino.hk at $9,000. The other countries earning chart entries this week were Mexico (.com.mx), Austria (.at), France (.fr), Poland (.pl), the Cocos Keeling Islands (.cc), the United States (.us) and India (.in). Here's a look at the complete Country Code chart for the week ending January 28:
