Latest news of the domain name industry

Fab Fortnight: Quartet of 6-Figure Sales Leads the Way as the Aftermarket Continues to Defy the Dog Days of August

The dog days. The dictionary defines them as "the hot period between early July and early September; a period of inactivity." While the domain business overall is in a down cycle (primarily due to the disappearing act that has been performed by PPC revenue), inactivity in the aftermarket has not been one of its problems this month. 

Even with many business people away on vacation (as I was last week) a lot of domain names are finding buyers. Over the past 14 days, four more six-figure sales were reported, including one that ranks among the year's ten biggest sales. To bring you completely up to date on sales that have been logged since our last report August 5, this will be a double-length column with all of our charts expanded to 40 positions from the usual 20.

Sedo.com logged three of the four six-figure sales at the top of the leader board with #1 Brazil.com ($500,000), #2 Payment.com ($250,000) and #4 Payments.com ($150,000) totaling a cool $900,000. Rick Schwartz's $200,000 sale of #3 ChinaTours.com rounded out the fearsome foursome.

  

By Ron Jackson

In a tour de force performance, Sedo went on to take 8 of the first 10 positions on our all extension Top 40 Chart, 14 of the first 20 and 30 of 46 openings overall (the extra positions came from a 7-way tie for the final slot). Sedo's hit parade included all nine of the ccTLD sales that joined the usual .com party on the Big Board. #5 Grafikkarte.de ("graphic card" in German) led the country code charge at $73,828 - one of the year's 10 biggest ccTLD sales.

The non .com gTLDs (what we call the Global Contenders) earned five spots on the elite list, led by #14 HomeLoans.org, a name that changed hands for $37,000 in a private transaction. That sale also ranks among the year's ten best in this category.

There is an interesting ROI story behind two of the heavyweights from the .com brigade, iPal.com and CouponNetwork.com, a pair of names that tied for 7th at $59,000 each. iPal.com had previously sold for just $7,800 at Enom's Club Drop in April 2005. In October of the same year, CouponNetwork.com was picked up for $10,450 at SnapNames, less than 20% of the price that NoktaDomains.com got for it this time around. Nokta, the AfternicDLS, NameJet and RickLatona.com all joined Sedo as venues that had multiple entries on this week's chart. 

In case you missed it, a belated but very big domain sale from last year was revealed shortly after our last report. An SEC filing showed that online shoe retailer Zappos.com paid $4.9 million to get Clothes.com from IdeaLab in May of 2008. That ranks as the second highest sale reported last year so we have added it to that position on our 2008 Top 100 list. 

Back in the present, we have many more domain sales to tell you about from the past two weeks. Here is how all of the leaders stack up for the period ending Sunday, August 16:

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

One of the year's top 10 country code sales, Grafikkarte.de ("graphic card" in German), led the ccTLDs this week with a $73,828 sale at Sedo.com. That is just one of nine solid five-figure sales on our Country Code Top 40 chart covering the past two weeks. You saw all of those on our all-extension leader board at the top of this report. 

The biggest ccTLD sale you haven't seen yet is #10 Secure.it (Italian country code) at $8,460 via Sedo. Sedo swept the first 19 positions on the chart and piled up 37 of 40 entries overall as they extended their dominance in the country code category. SnapNames had the highest non Sedo sale, banking $5,722 for #20 Hollywood.us (United States country code). That was one of three .us domains on the leader board, joining #28 Wine.us ($5,041) and #31 Halloween.us ($4,500)

As is usually the case, Germany's popular .de extension had the most chart entries with 12, followed by Great Britain's .co.uk with six. Italy (.it) and France (.fr) each had four representatives on the elite list. Here is how all of the country code top sellers stacked up for the two weeks ending August 16:

If there are country code extensions in our report that you are not familiar with, you can look up the nation each extension goes with here.

Global Contenders (Non .com gTLDs: .biz, .info, .mobi, .net, .org & .tel)

Like the ccTLDs, the Global Contenders registered one of the category's 10 biggest sales year-to-date in our latest reported period. HomeLoans.org did the honors after changing hands for $37,000 in a private sale. That was one of five five-figure GC sales this week, all of which earned spots on the all extension leader board you saw earlier. 

The top GC sale you haven't seen yet is #6 Parents.info, sold for $8,250 at Sedo. Wet.net was next at $7,012 at GoDaddy Auctions. While the .nets and .orgs dominated our expanded GC Top 40 Chart, .info also made a good showing with five chart entries including four on the top half of the leader board.  

Here's how all of the Global Contenders stacked up for the two weeks ending August 16:

As always, we welcome all verifiable sales reports from companies, private sellers or individuals with knowledge of an important sale made through any channel. To contribute information and help make this column better,  just drop a note to editor@dnjournal.com.

We truly appreciate the industry leading companies who share their sales information with us to help everyone in the business get a handle on current domain values. Richard Meyer of Domain Sales Center also provides invaluable help in collecting data for these sales reports each week.

Every Tuesday night or Wednesday morning we publish the highest reported domain name sales for the previous week. On Mondays and Tuesdays our contributors send us their sales data for the previous 7 days. We then compile that information and write this article to give you the most comprehensive sales report in the industry.
