Three New Domains Qualify for Our 2010 Top 100 Domain Sales Chart in the Final Week of the Year 

The 2010 domain sales season came to a close last week with three new domains taking places on the year's final Top 100 Domain Sales Chart. Two of those newcomers cracked the six-figure barrier. OnlineKredit.net comes on board at #58 after a €100,000 ($131,000) sale at Sedo.com. Poker.com.au also earned a spot on the elite list at #73 with a $100,000 sale handled by Moniker/SnapNames 

The third new entry was Podnova.com, sold at Sedo for a cool $90,000. That was good enough to gain a share of the 91st position. 

Here is how the top sellers stacked up in 2010 (new chart entrants are highlighted in green each week):

** In November 2009 an insider shill bidding scandal was revealed at SnapNames.com that affected as many as 50,000 auctions from 2005 to Oct. 2009. Sales from the tainted auctions were completed at the prices listed however, in an effort to offset some of the damage done, SnapNames offered refunds to those who paid more than they otherwise would have had the shill bidder not been running up the price against them. Some accepted those refunds and other did not, choosing to seek compensation through the courts. 

There is no way to know who received partial refunds and on what domains those refunds were issued, or even which reported SnapNames sales over the years were affected by the shill bidder. So, we are advising readers that even though SnapNames sales listed between 2005-Oct. 2009 were completed at the prices shown, some buyers may have received refunds after October 2009 of a portion of the original prices they paid.

*Date column shows the date (month/day/year) the sale was published in DNJournal.  

** In November 2009 an insider shill bidding scandal was revealed at SnapNames.com that affected as many as 50,000 auctions from 2005 to Oct. 2009. Sales from the tainted auctions were completed at the prices listed however, in an effort to offset some of the damage done, SnapNames offered refunds to those who paid more than they otherwise would have had the shill bidder not been running up the price against them. Some accepted those refunds and other did not, choosing to seek compensation through the courts. 

There is no way to know who received partial refunds and on what domains those refunds were issued, or even which reported SnapNames sales over the years were affected by the shill bidder. So, we are advising readers that even though SnapNames sales listed between 2005-Oct. 2009 were completed at the prices shown, some buyers may have received refunds after October 2009 of a portion of the original prices they paid.
