.Com GeoDomain and 8 ccTLDs Dominate This Week's Domain Sales Chart 

With many people out of their offices due to the holiday break we wound up one venue short of having a full data set again this week. After being absent last week, Sedo has caught up by sending us two weeks worth of data that has been incorporated in this new report. However, this week the AfternicDLS was missing in action when our deadline arrived. So, expect two weeks worth of sales from them next week when just about everyone will be be back at work and would should again have the full complement of sales venues represented. 

With a double dose of data to draw from, Sedo wound up dominating our new Top 20 Sales Chart, sweeping the first six spots and taking 16 of 20 positions overall. A nice geodomain, Kiev.com, set the pace at $88,000. ccTLDs claimed the next four positions and a total of eight spots on the Big Board. 

Sedo accounted for all but one of those country code sales with #2 BedroomFurniture.co.uk ($57,500) and #3 Apuestas.com.es ("bets" in Spanish at $55,770) leading their ccTLD roster. The nation of Tonga made a rare appearance on the chart thanks to Sedo's sale of a one-letter domain, #17 U.to at $13,000

By Ron Jackson

The only charted country code sale that was not made by Sedo was #7 Interaction.ca (Canadian ccTLD), a name that changed hands for $28,880 in a private transaction.

NameJet put a pair of names on the elite list; #14 ShoePavilion.com ($15,600) and #19 InsuranceClaim.com ($12,100). The only other venue on the all-extension leader board is DNFolio.com who scored with the only non .com gTLD on this week's chart - #15 Chiropractor.net at $15,000

Here is how all of the sales leaders stacked up for the week ending Sunday, Dec. 27:

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.

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, .pro & .tel)

The .nets and the .orgs evenly split the 20 positions on our new Global Contenders Chart, taking tens places each this week. They also split the two five-figure sales that lead the list. You saw those in the all extension section earlier. 

The top GC sale you haven't seen yet is #3 The.org at $9,999 via Sedo. The seller had just picked up that domain in September for $2,700 at NameJet, so they did very well with that flip. 

Sedo accounted for 14 of the 20 charted domains. NameJet was the only other venue with multiple chart entries, scoring four times with a group led by #8 Ganet.org at $5,444.

Here's how all of the Global Contenders stacked up for the week ending Dec. 27:
