Huge Brazilian ccTLD Sale Tops This Week's Domain Sales Chart 

The year's 2nd biggest ccTLD sale and the largest sale ever reported for Brazil's .com.br extension leads our latest weekly Top 20 Sales Chart. Seller Gustavo Volcan banked $300,000 in a private transaction for Imoveis.com.br - the Portuguese word for "real estate" or "properties." The only bigger ccTLD sale reported thus far in 2010 was Credit. fr for $851,875 through Sedo in January.

Sedo claimed the runner up spot with Gifted.com at $94,000. Sedo went on to sweep 15 of the 21 chart positions (the extra spot resulted from a five-way tie for the final position). Sedo's roster included five ccTLD sales that qualified for the all extension leader board, led by #10 Wine.tv at $17,002 and #12 (tie) Domains.co.za (South African country code) at $15,000

Sedo also posted the only non .com gTLD on the Big Board - #17 (tie) Versicherungen.org at €10,000 ($13,400).

By Ron Jackson

The AfternicDLS and NameJet both hit the daily double with each placing a pair of names on the chart. The AfternicDLS scored with #5 CollegeReview.com at $32,500 and #6 JoinTheResistance.com at $30,800. NameJet hit the top half of the leader board with #8 Katherine.com at $18,150 and led the second half of the elite list with #11 CIF.com at $17,000.

Moniker also earned chart honors with #9 MagicTalk.com at $17,261 (they also sold MagicTalk.net to the same buyer for another $3,046). 

Here is how all of the sales leaders stacked up for the week ending Sunday, April 18:

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

The country codes have been strong week in and week out but they were really hitting on all cylinders this week. In addition to the blockbuster $300,000 sale of Imoveis.com.br we told you about at the top of this report, the ccTLDs rang up 8 five-figure sales. You saw those in the all extension section as well so the highest sale on our new Country Code Top 20 Chart that you haven't seen yet is #10 CA.tv at $9,500.  

This was a huge week for the .tv extension as Sedo reported a truckload of closed sales from their recent premium .tv auction. That opened the door for .tv to pile up 11 of the 20 positions on the ccTLD Top 20. They also helped Sedo sweep 18 of the 20 chart entries. 

The .tv winners included #11 Lawyers.tv ($7,601) and a trio that tied for #14 at $6,600 each; Books.tv, Camera.tv and English.tv.

Here is how the country code leaders stacked up for the week ending April 18:
