Domain Sales Cooled Off a Bit This Week But SnapNames and Sedo Kept the Fire Burning
  

Severe winter storms swept through the northern United States last week and it looks like some of that chilly weather reached the domain market as well. Sales cooled off with the top reported transaction hitting just $30,000 (for CostaRicaHotel.com at SnapNames.com). Though the dollar figures were down a bit, someone did remember to turn on the heat at SnapNames, as they swept more than half of the entries on our new Top 20 chart, including the #2 spot with Fruit.net at $28,533.

SnapNames charted 11 domains overall while Sedo.com also showed a lot of muscle by bagging 7 slots on the Big Board including five of the first ten positions. Sedo's top guns were #3 Bing.com at $25,375 and #4 Invest.mobi at $22,500.

By Ron Jackson

SnapNames and Sedo were so strong that only two chart entries were left for other venues. Those went to Pool.com with #5 PropertyShop.com at $20,801 and Afternic.com with #15 FreeDiscount.com at $10,000

As usual, .com was the dominant extension, occupying 16 of the 20 rungs on the top sales ladder. Fruit.net and Invest.mobi gave the Global Contenders two entries on the all-extension leader board, a number matched by the County Codes thanks to the  9,000 ($11,824) sale of #10 Forum.gr (ccTLD for Greece) and the 4,995 ($9,763) sale of #16 Partnership.co.uk. Sedo handled both of those country code deals.

Here's a look at the complete Top 20 for the week ending Sunday, Feb. 18:

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.
