Baja Brings Big Bucks As Bull Market Continues for Domains 


Last week DigiPawn.com sold a pair of domains that landed on our top sellers chart. This week, company owner Rick Latona went shopping and came home with the two biggest buys reported over the past seven days. He added Baja.com and BajaCalifornia.com to his ever growing portfolio of gems - acquiring both domains from the same seller in a private transaction for $95,500 each. 

Enom's Club Drop occupies the #3 slot with SpeedTrap.com at $58,500, followed closely by a pair of names at $55,000 each; Subscribe.com (sold at SnapNames.com) and Tournaments.com, sold at the Moniker/T.R.A.F.F.I.C. West auction in March, but just finalized this week. 

By Ron Jackson

I thought we had seen the last of the Moniker/T.R.A.F.F.I.C. domains last week but a few more slipped through the cracks and showed up this week. As a result, we will go with an expanded chart again this week (going up to 30 positions) before returning to our standard Top 20 format next week. Every domain on the new leader board, except one, cracked the five-figure mark. 

SnapNames had the most chart entries, piling up ten big winners including #6 YourCompany.com at $48,251 and #7 WoodBlinds.com at $38,500. Sedo.com also had an impressive week with seven entries on the Big Board, including #8 Mame.com at $36,000 and #9 Jeddah.com at $35,000. Afternic/BuyDomains also bagged multiple chart positions with #19 SportsTown.com heading their roster at $14,400

.Com dominated this week, taking all but four of the 30 places. .Net managed to nab two (#15 Fox.net at $19,000 and #18 Viajar.net at $15,750) with the other two spots going to country code domains. The two ccTLDs tied for 21st as StockMarket.eu (European Union extension) and Investor-Relations.de (German ccTLD) each attracted 10,000 ($13,611) at the same venue (Sedo). 

There's an interesting story behind #15 (tie) ETK.com which sold at Sedo for $19,000. That domain had been picked up less than three months ago (also at Sedo) for just $6,100. There aren't too many places where you can triple your investment in less than 90 days! Here's a look at the complete leader board for the week ending Sunday, April 29:

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.

Both of those names also made the all extension leader board you saw earlier. Sedo also had the #3 domain (and all but 3 of the 20 chart entries) with Nude.it (Italian ccTLD) going for 6,000 ($8,167).

MediaStores.co.uk, one of three British ccTLDs on the chart, grabbed the #4 slot after going for $7,000 at Afternic/BuyDomains, a venue that accounted for the three country code sales Sedo did not make. Germany's .de came back to take the #5 position with Schlossstrasse.de ("Castle Street" in German) at $6,793. .de had more charted domains that any other extension with six in all. The European Union's .eu was next with four.

.TV was the only other extension with multiple entries, scoring twice with #7 Bible.tv ($5,000) and #16 Arlington.tv ($1,800). The other countries represented this week were Hong Kong (.hk), Austria (.at), the United States (.us) and the Isle of Man (.im).
