Domain Sales Continue to Sizzle with $500,000 Deal for a Two-Letter .com  


After a week away to cover the Domain Roundtable conference in Seattle (our complete wrap up article on that event will be published in the next day or two) we are back to bring you completely up to date on what has happened in the domain market over the past 14 days. The numbers continue to impress, both in terms of the amounts being paid and the remarkably high volume of sales (particularly when we are supposed to be in the "slow" summer season). 

Since we will be covering twice as much data as we usually do, we are expanding our usual Top 20 chart to 50 positions (doubling it then adding ten more spots to make way for the first wave of completed sales from last month's Moniker/Affiliate Summit auction).  In fact it looks like a 20-position chart may be a permanent thing of the past as the acceleration in sales volume appears poised to render it obsolete. 

Over $3.5 million worth of domains were sold in a live auction at Roundtable last week and as those sales are finalized (becoming eligible for our charts) they will join the constant stream of high dollar sales generated by Moniker's many live auctions, making additional elbow room on our charts a necessity. 

By Ron Jackson

Sedo.com had a fabulous fortnight piling up 27 of the 50 highest sales including the top two and seven of the first ten. LI.com led the way for them at $500,000 in a deal that is the 11th highest sale reported so far this year. Sedo also sold #2 Supernatural.com for $125,000. In still another six-figure sale, Moniker.com closed Passover.com at $100,000. That name was auctioned off in their live auction at the recent Affiliate Summit in Miami

A half-dozen country code domains cracked the all-extension leader board this week with #5 Reviews.co.uk headlining that group after being acquired by Callum McKeefery for 38,000 ($75,307) in a private sale. Four Global Contenders also joined the usual flood of .com domains on the elite list. #7 Baby.org set the pace in that category, posting 47,234 ($63,656) in a sale at Sedo. In another big one, #9 Pay.mobi pulled $50,000 in the Moniker/Affiliate Summit auction.

NameMedia continues to show excellent results with their Afternic DLS platform (built on the solid foundation provided by Afternic.com and BuyDomains.com). They put nine names on the Big Board including a pair at $44,000 each; StudentAide.com and FCM.com. Here is how all of the top sellers stacked up for the two week period ending Sunday, August 19:

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. Our procedure for verifying the accuracy of domain sales reports is available here.

Country Codes

Reviews.co.uk led a very strong week for Country Code domains. That private sale ranks as the third largest ccTLD sale reported so far in 2007. The first five names on this list all made the all-extension leader board this week and eight names broke the five-figure mark including a pair of .TVs; Regarder.tv ($11,590) and LiveMusic.tv ($10,000). Both of those domains were sold at Sedo, a venue that continues to own the country code category. Sedo accounted for 39 of the 40 sales on this week's expanded chart!

The runner-up this week was Home.gr (Greece ccTLD) at 21,000 ($28,307). So many different countries were represented we won't try to summarize them as we usually do. Instead let's go right to the chart to see all of the country code leaders for the two week period ending August 19:
