SnapNames Snares 12 Entries on the This Week's Top 20 Chart and the Transfer of Porn.com is Completed 


The $9.5 million sale of Porn.com was announced two weeks ago but we weren't able to chart the transaction until the transfer of the domain to MXN Limited was completed this week. That now ranks as the largest all-cash sale ever reported and, obviously, is the top name on our latest leader board. 

SnapNames.com also grabbed a share of the spotlight this week by sweeping 12 of the 21 positions on the Big Board (there was one extra spot due to a tie for the 20th position). For the second week in a row, SnapNames put a Korean IDN in the #2 slot. This time it was 핸드폰.com (the puny code is:
xn--hy1bj30dt7a.com), which translates to "hand phone" in Korean. That name fetched $42,250 in the biggest IDN sale reported so far in 2007.

By Ron Jackson

SnapNames swept six of the first ten positions, also scoring with #3 OwnerFinancing.com at $36,361. Afternic.com/BuyDomains.com  also had a strong outing with five names on the new Top 20 including #4 StockShop.com at $21,000 and #5 InternetMedia.com at $20,000. All three remaining openings went to Sedo.com whose roster was headed by #6 CLK.com at $17,500.

.Com just missing making a clean sweep of the elite all-extension list. A lone country code domain, #16 Wisely.co.uk, kept the .coms from pitching a perfect game. That British ccTLD went for 8,000 ($10,744) at Sedo.

Here's a look at the complete leader board for the week ending Sunday, May 27:

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.

Country Codes

Great Britain went to the head of the Country Code class this week thanks to the $10,744 sale of Wisely.co.uk at Sedo. However, Germany's ever-popular .de won the overall numbers game, piling up 9 of the 20 chart entries, including a pair that tied for the second slot at 6,000 ($8,058) each. Those names, Sommerreise.de ("summer travel" in German) and CodeGear.de, were also sold at Sedo, a venue that accounted for all but two of the charted ccTLD sales. 

Like .co.uk, the European Union's .eu had two names on the leader board while seven other countries each put one name on the list. The other nations represented this week were the Cocos (Keeling) Islands (.cc), the Netherlands (.nl), Spain (.es), Tuvalu (.tv), Austria (.at), France (.fr) and Switzerland (.ch)
