Trio of Six Figure Sales Reign Over This Week's Expanded Domain Sales Chart

A huge wave of completed sales from last month's Moniker/SnapNames Live domain auction at T.R.A.F.F.I.C. West hit this week's chart so, as we have done in the past, we are expanding our usual Top 20 chart to 40 positions. That keeps the everyday venues from getting lost among the many special event sales. 

All told, Moniker/T.R.A.F.F.I.C. sales accounted for 20 of the 40 chart entries with another auction sale from Moniker's live event at the Affiliate West Summit also making a big impact as it hit the Big Board in the #1 position. That name was Offer.com, a domain that commanded $180,000. The other domains cracking the six-figure barrier  this week were Porn.mobi and AutoClassifieds.com, a pair of names that each attracted $110,000 in the Moniker/T.R.A.F.F.I.C. auction in Las Vegas.

By Ron Jackson

NicExpress.com finally broke through the Moniker logjam at the top of the elite list with their $30,000 sale of #5 Penitence.com. After Moniker, Sedo.com had the most chart entries placing five names landing on the leader board with #13 Cellulitis.com leading the way for them at $20,200.

.Mobi, the new extension aimed at mobile devices, had a good week charting five domains with all of those selling in the Moniker/T.R.A.F.F.I.C. live event. At $26,000 #7 Property.mobi joined Porn.mobi in the first ten. The only other non .com domains on the Top 40 were a pair of British country code names led by #33 HomeMortgage.co.uk, sold at Sedo for 6,100 ($12,235). .Com was even more dominant than usual piling up 33 of 40 chart entries.

Here is how all of the top sellers stacked up for the week ending Sunday, March 23:

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.
