UNet.com Yields $100,000 to Top a Long List of Reported Domain Sales From the Past Fortnight

We're back after a week off to cover last week's T.R.A.F.F.I.C. West conference in Las Vegas (our comprehensive review of that event will be published on our home page by the end of the week). Given the 14-day span since our last column, you won't be surprised to hear that hundreds of new four, five and six figure sales have been reported since our previous trip to the plate. The lone surprise is that from among all of those sales, only one cracked the six-figure mark and that one - Unet.com, sold at Sedo.com for $100,000 to barely clear the bar. 

We also got word of one higher sale but it was closed last August and has just now come to light. Sales have to have been completed within the past 30 days to qualify for our current weekly chart, but we will add this one to our 2007 Year to Date list. The name is Celebs.com and it changed hands for $110,000 in a private transaction.

By Ron Jackson

Despite the paucity of blockbuster sales there was a surplus of solid five-figure deals, including Sedo's $82,000 sale of #2 Centerfolds.com. SnapNames also had a large group in this range, most of them coming from closings of sales made during the SnapNames Live auction at last month's DOMAINfest Global conference in Hollywood, California. Their roster was led by #3 Intimate.com at $80,000 and #4 Kathy.com at $65,000. All told, SnapNames piled up 19 of the 41 entries on the all extension leader board (the extra slot resulted from a four-way tie for the final position). 

RickLatona.com holds down the #5 spot with Lakeview.com at $52,500. Latona didn't sell as many names as usual from his namesake site the past couple of weeks because he has been vacationing in Africa. I got a note from Rick this morning and he had just come down from climbing Mount Kilimanjaro. Made the summit too! After all of that time at high altitude he'll probably return home a little light-headed so you can probably hit him up for some good deals over the next few days.

While .com enjoyed its customary dominance of the Big Board, a couple of non .coms did crack  the top ten. #8 Comparer.fr (French country code) rang up $44,968 at Sedo and #10 (tie) Politics.net stuffed the ballot box with $35,000 at SnapNames. There is another ccTLD on the second half of the chart. #32 Business.la banked $17,500 at SnapNames. .la is the country code for Laos, but the registry has tried to market it as meaning "Los Angeles", an effort that has met with modest results, but this keyword proved to be an exception to the rule.

Here is how all of the top sellers stacked up for the two weeks ending Sunday, February 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. 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.

Country Codes

There is a remarkable variety of countries represented on the new ccTLD chart featuring 17 different countries. The big winner was Comparer.fr, a French domain that sold for $44,968 at Sedo. The big surprise was a pair of Laotian .la domains in the second and third spots. There haven't been many notable sales in that extension but Business.la ($17,500) and Food.la ($11,250) broke the mold this week.

Germany's popular .de had seven chart entries incuding an IDN in a tie for 17th, Blöd.de at $3,748. That domain was sold at Sedo, a venue that always dominates this chart and did so again this week by sweeping 23 of 30 chart entries.

Most of the extensions on the elite list are recognizable but #28 (tie) Forex.nr ($2,000 at the AfternicDLS) would probably stump a lot of people. .nr is the ccTLD for Nauru. If you knew that give yourself a gold star.  Here is how all of the ccTLD top sellers stack up for the two weeks ending Feb. 24:
