Boating.com Docks at $250,000 to Top Domain Aftermarket Action Over the Past Two Weeks

I was away covering the DOMAINfest Global conference in Los Angeles last week so, with this double length report, I'm going to bring you completely up to date on all domain sales reported since our last column two weeks ago. Our usual Top 20 Charts have all been expanded to 40 positions to make room for the double dose of data we have for your this time out.

Starting at the top, a trio of six-figure sales set the pace over the past fortnight, with the AfternicDLS sale of Boating.com at $250,000 leaving all comers in its wake. The next two spots went to a pair of country code domains sold through Sedo.com; Website.de at €101,150 ($141,610) and Designer.co.uk at £76,300 ($122,080).

The surging ccTLDs accounted for three of the top five sales with Lundi.fr settling into the #5 slot after a €50,000 ($70,000), also at Sedo. The country codes wound up take 11 of the 43 places on the expanded Big Board (the extra positions resulted from a 6-way tie for the final opening).

By Ron Jackson

The .com contingent drew strength from #4 Macaroni.com ($74,607 at NameJet) and a string of Sedo sales that filled positions 6 through 11. ComTech.com at $60,000 led that pack and helped Sedo pile up 30 chart entries overall, more than any other venue. .Com domains took 29 of the 43 chart positions which, coupled with the 11 ccTLDs on the elite list, left just 3 places for non .com gTLDs. The highest of those was #13 CH.org at £13,500 ($21,600) via Sedo. A pair of .nets rounded out the non .com gTLD trio with places on the second half of the leader board.

Sedo, the AfternicDLS, NameJet and SnapNames all had multiple chart entries. The SnapNames list was led by #12 CZR.com at $22,250.  

Here is how all of the sales leaders stacked up for the two week period ending Sunday, Jan. 31:

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.

 Afternic Domain Auctions

Country Codes

The ccTLDs, especially powerhouse extensions .de (Germany) and .co.uk (Great Britain), are continuing to enjoy the boom they enjoyed in 2009 when the total value of country code sales reported to us soared 28% over the previous year (there are more details on this in our latest monthly newsletter). Over the past two weeks we logged 11 ccTLD sales of five figures or more with two of those cracking the six-figure mark; #1 Website.de at $141,610 and #2 Designer.co.uk at $122,080

Both of those domains were sold by Sedo who swept 38 of the 40 positions on our expanded Country Code chart. The only venues able to break through the Sedo monopoly were OwnThisDomain.co.uk who sold #11 AmateurPoker.co.uk for $10,000 and Got.us who sold #13 (tie) GVT.us to a Houston based software company for $7,000

While .de and .co.uk domains traditionally dominate the ccTLD action, other country code extensions have been popping up fairly often on our country code charts  including France's .fr which had two names in the first 15 this week - #3 Lundi.fr at $70,000 and #13 (tie) AssuranceScooter.fr at $7,000. Russia's .ru also put two names in the first 15 and claimed four places on the leader board overall. Their roster was led by Deichmann.ru at $10,500.

Here is how the country code leaders stacked up for the two weeks ending Jan. 31:

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)

A nice two-letter .org led the Global Contenders (non .com gTLDs) sales over the past two weeks with a $21,600 transaction handled through Sedo. There were two other five-figure sales in this category, but over the 14-day period only 7 GC sales above $5,000 were reported. 

With the aftermarket continuing to show a strong preference for .coms and local ccTLDs over non .com gTLDs one has to wonder how investors will view resale prospects for the unlimited number of new non .com gTLDs that ICANN hopes to start rolling out later this year. Certainly, the success or failure of any of the new gTLDs will hinge more on new registrations and development activity than aftermarket sales results, but the data shows that entrepreneurs looking to make money from new gTLDs shouldn't expect significant profits to come from the secondary market.

The .nets continue to be the most popular extension in this category as they took 23 of the 40 chart entries on our new GC leader board. The .orgs also continue to hold their own with a dozen entries. .Info scored with a pair of top ten domains; #5 BWL.info at $8,400 and #8 Umzuege.info at $4,838. A third .info landed at #20 - Enfant.info at $2,800.

.Biz and .Travel also made appearances this week. #21 PDX.biz earned $2,800 at Sedo and #40 Dental.travel drilled $2,295 at the same venue. Sedo piled up 15 chart entries and the AfternicDLS did even better, placing 23 names on the expanded GC chart.

Here's how all of the Global Contenders stacked up for the two weeks ending Jan. 31:
