Deals.de Draws Six-Figure Sum in This Week's Top Reported Domain Sale 

Deals.de changed hands this week for 65,640 ($102,182) in the fifth largest ccTLD sale reported so far this year. The operators of Aha.de bought the German country code domain with plans to launch a price search engine/shopping platform on the domain. Deals.de was the top sale reported in any extension, nipping Blonde.com, a name that attracted $99,000 at Sedo's GreatDomains.com

We expanded our usual Top 20 chart to 30 positions this week to make room for another round of completed sales from last month's Moniker.com live auction at T.R.A.F.F.I.C. East. Two of those hold down the third and fourth positions on the Big Board with Track.com sprinting to $92,500 and ComputerParts.com assembling $80,000

 

By Ron Jackson

This was a huge week for country code domains, with 13 ccTLDs making the all-extension leader board and six of them claiming spots among the first ten, including #6 Nepal.de at 38,000 ($59,153) and #7 CV.ca at $54,977. The former name sold at Sedo and the latter in a MyID.ca auction of premium .ca (Canadian country code) domains.  

Sedo has always dominated the country code category and the ccTLD breakout helped them pile up 13 chart entries, more than any other venue. MyID.ca secured five rungs on the ladder with high dollar .ca auction sales. 

France (.fr) and the United States (.us) also played a role in the ccTLD surge. A matching French set; Ideescadeau.fr ("gift idea" in French) and Ideescadeaux.fr ("gift ideas" in French) banked $27,242 each at Sedo to tie for 8th and Baseball.us (a great keyword match for the American country code) tied for 11th after booking $25,000 in a sale through Name.com

Here is how all of the top sellers stacked up for the week ending Sunday, June 22:

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

This was a monster week for country code domains with one six-figure sale (the biggest in any extension) and a dozen more that reached the five-figure mark. As you saw earlier, Deals.de defeated all comers this week in a $102,182 private sale. 

We also told you about all of the five figure sales at the top of this article, so the best ccTLD sale you haven't seen yet is #14 ZZ.ca at $9,959. That was another one of the premium .ca (Canadian country code) domains auctioned off by MyID.ca. A half dozen .ca domains dot our new ccTLD Top 20 chart, more than any other extension. Germany's .de was next with five and the Netherlands .nl had four chart entries. 

Here is how all of the ccTLD top sellers stack up for the week ending June 22:
