GreatDomains Auction Sales and Dominate This Week's Expanded Leader Board

Sedo's GreatDomains.com premium auction site runs a week long sale once a month. A fresh batch of completed transactions from that high end venue dominates this week's all extension Top 40 sales chart (it actually wound up being 41 due to a tie for the final position). As we always do when a wave of special event sales comes in, we doubled the length of the usual 20-position all-extension leader board to insure results from the everyday venues are not overlooked.

GreatDomains piled 14 chart entries, including the number 1 sale and four of the top five. Their parent company, Sedo.com, also flexed their muscles at their everyday platform and actually wound up with even more chart entries overall with 19. That gave the GreatDomains/Sedo juggernaut 33 of the 41 listed domains - a stunning outing by any standard. 

The flagbearer for GreatDomains was Crab.com, a domain that went for $92,000 to take the pole position on the elite list. Sedo's string of hits from their main site got started with #2 JuegosFlash.com ("flash games" in Spanish) at €25,000 ($35,250). They also generated four of the five country code sales on the Top 40, leading that category with #6 Schauspiel.de ("pageant" in German) at €20,000 ($28,200). MyID.ca accounted for the lone non-Sedo ccTLD sale on the Big Board by selling #10 Lesbian.ca for $20,400.

  

By Ron Jackson

The AfternicDLS had a trio of chart entries that included two of the three non .com global TLDs on the Top 40; #7 (tie) Adware.net at $25,000 and #18 (tie) NursingSchools.org at $15,000.

The only other venue with multiple chart entries was Moniker.com who just closed three sales from their live auction at T.R.A.F.F.I.C. New York. That trio was led by #18 (tie) AncientArt.com at $15,000. .Com rolled up 33 of the 41 chart entries in a powerhouse performance from the world's most popular extension.

Here is how all of the leaders stacked up for the week ending Sunday, December 14:

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.
