ET.com Phones Home for $225,000 in This Week's Highest Reported Domain Sale
  

Another huge wave of completed sales from last month's Moniker.com  live and silent auctions at the T.R.A.F.F.I.C. West conference in Las Vegas  washed ashore this week. To make sure that sales from other venues over the past seven days were not lost in the flood of completed sales from that one special event, we doubled the size of this week's leader board from the usual 20 positions to make it a Top 40. Even then, auction domains swept 27 of the 40 positions, led by a six-figure blockbuster, ET.com at $225,000. That also ranks as one of the ten biggest sales reported so far in 2007 (#9 on our Year-To-Date chart).

SnapNames.com would have dominated the chart this week if the auction results had not rolled in. Led by #3 MobileFone.com at $65,260, SnapNames would have had the top three names and seven of the top ten. Even in the face of the auction competition, SnapNames rang up eight entries on the expanded Big Board.

By Ron Jackson

Afternic.com/BuyDomains.com (and their Active Exchange platform) and Sedo.com each put two names on the leader board with the private sale of #37 Cristianos.com ("Christians" in Spanish) for $15,000 accounting for the other slot. The top name for Afternic/BuyDomains was #20 ElectronicFiling.com at $22,188 while the standard bearer at Sedo was #32 Actualite.com at 12,000 ($16,112). Both of the latter two names would have been top ten domains without the auction results.

.Com dominates the Top 40, taking all but four entries (with those four all going to .net). #5 Model.net was the biggest non .com, banking $50,000 from the Moniker auction. That sale was made by Durni Companies LLC. In addition to all of the charted domains, there were 21 more five-figure sales just off the chart, making a total of 61 domains that closed at $10,000 or higher this week.

Here's a look at the complete leader board for the week ending Sunday, April 8:

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.
