Latest news of the domain name industry

Autumn Gets Off to a Good Start With Three of the Year's Ten Biggest Sales Being Booked Over the Past Two Weeks

Since I was away last week speaking at and covering the SedoPro Partners Forum in Key West, Florida, you'll be seeing double this week as we bring you up to speed on all of the notable domain sales reported since our last column two weeks ago. With 14 days worth of data to display, we've expanded our charts from 20 to 40 positions each.

The past fortnight was highlighted by three of the year's ten biggest sales, including pacesetter Ticket.com at a cool $1,525,000. That blockbuster sale was handled by the AfternicDLS who also took the runner-up spot with Luck.com at $675,000. Exterminator.com rounded out the power trio after going for $600,000 in a previosuly undisclosed deal handled by Moniker's private brokerage service. As I noted, all three of those sales rank among the ten biggest reported so far this year and Ticket.com moves into the top 5. 

  

By Ron Jackson

There is another major transaction to address this week. By now you have probably heard about a $16 million deal involving Insure.com that Elliot Silver uncovered last week. In commentary on Elliot's blog, some considered it to be a domain name sale while others did not. We had to make a judgment call on that as well because our charts have always been limited to cash sales of domain names only. The opening sentence of the press release announcing this sale made it clear that more than the name alone changed hands stating: "Insure.com, Inc. (Nasdaq: NSUR) announced today that it has sold its Insure.com brand name and related media assets for $16 million in cash to QuinStreet, Inc.

In addition the release includes a quote from Insure.com's company chairman and CEO Robert Bland who stated, "We have sold our Insure.com name and specified website content in a significant cash transaction that we think is in the best long-term interest of our shareholders." That being the case, we cannot chart this as a domain only sale, however it is great to see this kind of domain at the center of a sale of this magnitude. That can only bring positive attention to the value of generic domains and that is what is really important in my view.

Now getting back to the past two weeks of action in the aftermarket, Sedo.com had another strong outing, taking 21 of the 45 positions on our all extension leader board (the extra five positions on the Top 40 chart was the result of a six-way tie for the final spot).  Sedo's roster was led by #4 RSS.com at $125,000 and #5 Mutuelle.fr ("mutual insurance company" in French) at $116,221

The buyer of RSS.com, Ron Sheridan, actually wound up paying $137,500 because under the terms of the deal, he covered Sedo's 10% commission on the sale. The Mutuelle.fr sale is the highest French ccTLD sale reported so far this year and it also ranks in the top ten of all county code sales. 

The ccTLDs were rocking again this week, taking four places in the top ten and nine overall. #6 Antivirus.es (ccTLD for Spain) rang up $63,325 in a private sale and #7 Blackjack.eu raked in $45,000 at Sedo.

There are eight non .com gTLD sales on the elite list, all .nets. The leader in that category was Pro Forma's $30,000 sale of #11 PatioFurniture.net. That represents a terrific ROI for that domain since it previously sold for just $2,411 at SnapNames in May 2006. 

Here is how all of the leaders stack up for the two weeks ending Sunday, Oct. 11:

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

A banner year for country codes continued this week with the six-figure sale of Mutuelle.fr that ranks #7 among all ccTLDS year to date and eight solid five-figure sales. All of those high ticket transactions made the all extension leader board you saw earlier. The highest country code sales you haven't seen yet are a pair of three-letter domain that are tied for 10th on our expanded Country Code Top 40 Chart. Those are SEN.se (Swedish ccTLD) and SFR.ch (Swiss ccTLD) at $8,940 each. 

As they always do, Sedo dominated the ccTLD action, sweeping 35 of the 40 chart positions. In the race among extension, Germany's .de had the most chart entries with 13, followed by Great Britain's .co.uk with 6.  

Here is how all of the country code top sellers stacked up for the two weeks ending Oct. 11:

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.
