Quintet of Six-Figure Sales Headline a Fabulous Fortnight for the Domain Market 


While we took last week off to cover the T.R.A.F.F.I.C. conference and SedoPro Partners Forum in New York (reviews of both events will be published by the end of the day Monday), the dike burst in the domain aftermarket, flooding the industry with a tsunami of scintillating sales. Five of those cracked the six-figure mark and if it weren't for a non-disclosure agreement we would also be reporting the name of a one-word .com that went for $830,000 in a deal brokered by Moniker.com.  

Even with that one off limits, there is no shortage of eye-popping sales to tell you about. We'll bring you up to speed on all of the transactions reported since our last column June 12 and we're expanding our usual Top 20 chart to 50 positions to make room for all of the heavyweights that entered the ring over the past two weeks.

By Ron Jackson

While this column is jammed with sales gems, an even bigger wave is headed this way after Moniker sold close to $11 million worth of domains at their live auction during the T.R.A.F.F.I.C. conference last Thursday (June 21). Those sales have just entered the escrow process and will be popping up on our charts in the weeks ahead as payments are made and the names are transferred to their new owners. You can see all of the high bids here. Meanwhile Moniker's silent auction is winding down and will conclude Wednesday morning (June 27). The silent auction is expected to add a few million dollars more to a tally that has already shattered all domain auction records. 

While there is a lot to look forward to, let's focus now on the flurry of sales over the past fortnight. Sedo.com led the charge with the 150,000 ($201,792) sale of Masculin.com ("masculine" in French) to the owners Zedcom, a company that operated a French magazine at Imprevisible.com. They purchased the domain name from Virtual Network SA to rebrand the magazine and have now transitioned it to the new URL. Sedo had more sales on the Big Board than any other venue, walking off with 20 of the 50 entries. 

SnapNames.com claimed the runner-up slot with the $171,750 sale of DreamLife.com. HotProperty.com landed in the #3 position after being acquired by Australia's Transparence Group for $120,000 in a private sale. Moniker then took the spotlight with the first of three sales that ranked among the top eight, WifeLover.com at $100,930. Afternic.com/BuyDomains.com also broke the six-figure barrier with #5 MyFinance.com banking an even $100,000

While .coms always dominate the leader board, the country codes also turned in a very strong performance this week, grabbing 10 positions on the all-extension elite list. That group was led by the largest verified .cc sale ever reported, #9 CC.cc at $70,000. The sale to Korea's Jong Kim was made by Original Web Ventures with Moniker handling the escrow. .cc is the ccTLD for the Cocos (Keeling) Islands

The non .com Global Contenders were also represented by four entries, two .infos and two .nets. The top seller in that category was #17 Christian.info, purchased by domainer turned minister Adam Woeger of Colorado for $35,000 in a private transaction. Adam also acquired #39 (tie) Christian.us for $13,500 in another private deal.

In a notable private .com sale that reached the upper third of the expanded chart, Rick Latona bought Tasks.com for $40,000 from Bruno Falconi who operates Health.md. Here's how all of the leaders stack up for the two-week period ending Sunday, June 24:

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.

.Com Supporting Cast

As if that wasn't enough, there were 12 more five-figure just off the chart. Sedo.com accounted for more than half of those. The .coms in their group included Aromes.com ($10,764) and a quartet at $10,000 each made up of Snik.com, SavingAccounts.com, LottoResults.com and EssentialReality.com. They also had a five-figure .net and a five-figure .de. We'll tell you about those in the Global Contenders and Country Codes sections coming up later. 

Afternic/BuyDomains racked up three more five-figure sales with PWRD.com, Loci.com and Exchanger.com attracting $10,000 each. SnapNames also got into the act with Meetin.com at $10,350 and a five-figure .org that will we'll talk about in the Global Contenders section.

With 63 five-figure or higher sales reported over the past two weeks, you can imagine how big the four-figure list was. SnapNames had nearly a hundred sales in that range including Betrayal.com ($9,302), PhotoPosters.com ($9,000), PornSource.com ($8,100) and PowerCrunch.com ($8,000). LiveDirectory.com delivered $7,988, WineHolders.com uncorked $7,927, Male4Male.com corralled $7,900 and OrderStatus.com dug up $7,877.

MontanaWeb.com connected for $7,600, MalayalamSexMovies.com screened $7,400 and BootyTalks.com brought $7,211.

Global Contenders (.biz, .info, .mobi, .net & .org)

As we did with the all-extension chart, we are expanding this week's Global Contenders chart from 20 to 50 positions to make space for the flood of sales that poured in over the past two weeks. The top four domains on this list all made the Big Board you saw earlier and those leaders were backed up by two more five-figure domains, #5 Handicapped.org at $10,300 and #6 VideoPoker.net at $10,100

#8 Sermon.net also scored for that extension with a $9,000 sale at Moniker. The seller had picked up the domain just days earlier for $1,025 on Ebay. That's what you call a tidy (and quick) return on investment. 

.Info enjoyed one of its best weeks of the year, taking two of the top three spots. In other .info sales, Tariq Ghafoor tucked 4,999 ($6,722) away in his humidor by selling #12 Cigars.info at the DOMAINfest Amsterdam auction. Ghafoor also sold Balloons.info (in a private sale) and Outlets.info (through Sedo) for $2,500 each. PPCIncome.com picked up $3,000 with the sale of Graf.info.

Adam Woeger, who bought the week's #1 domain in this category, Christian.info ($35,000), helped finance his purchase by selling off some other names including Minister.info and Evangelist.info at $2,200 each.  Here's how all of the GC leaders stacked up for the two-week period ending June 24:

Country Codes

The past couple of weeks were extremely strong for the country codes as we saw 6 of the year's 16 largest deals made in 2007. You've already seen the first 10 names on the ccTLD chart on the all-extension leader board, including CC.cc at $70,000, the 3rd biggest country code sale reported so far in 2007

Still another five-figure sale that just missed the Big Board was Stadion.de ("stadium" in German), a name that went for  8,250 ($11,103) at Sedo. The riches were spread across many ccTLD extensions this week as you will see on our expanded Country Code chart (increased to 40 positions this week). If you are not familiar with all of the country codes on the chart, you can see the countries represented by each extension here.

Some more big ccTLD sales are on the way. In one of the largest, Nashville.us was sold for $23,000 at last week's T.R.A.F.F.I.C./Moniker live auction. The buyer was .com diehard Rick Schwartz which will undoubtedly surprise a few people. That sale will become eligible for the chart when it clears escrow. Here's a look at the complete list of Country Code top sellers for the two-week period ending June 24:
