Newlyweds.com Honeymoons at the Top of the Weekly Sales Chart

With the holidays now behind us, this was the first full week of the 2008 domain sales season. With just about everyone back on the job, market activity started picking back up again but we still haven't seen our first blockbuster of the New Year. #1 Newlyweds.com was nothing to sneeze at though, finally closing at $130,000 after being auctioned off at the Moniker/T.R.A.F.F.I.C. East auction in October. 

Moniker live auctions wound up accounting for the top three sales and four of the first five. NameJet.com broke Moniker's stranglehold of the upper quarter of the chart with #4 Atty.com at $48,900. That was one of five chart entries for NameJet and they reached the first ten again with #6 Well.org at $29,100. That was one of only two non .coms on the Big Board (the other was #18 (tie) Avatars.net at $9,100).

By Ron Jackson

Sedo.com wound up charting the most domains overall with seven and two of their sales also cracked the top half of the elite list, #8 NAK.com ($27,135) and #8 (tie) Dreamerz.com ($25,000)

The AfternicDLS was the only other venue with multiple chart entries, scoring four times. Their roster was led by #8 (tie) Racy.com at $25,000. Here is how all of the top sellers stacked up for the week ending Sunday, January 13:

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.

For the many newcomers entering the domain industry we also want to point out that the reasons why a domain name sells for a certain price can be varied and are not always clear to those who are unfamiliar with the domain market. If you do not understand why specific domain names command the prices they do, you are likely to make unwise domain registrations or purchases. We highly recommend that you do some basic research before you buy anything! As a starting point we have built a sister site specifically for you at NameNewbie.com.
