One of the Year's 10 Biggest Sales Set the Pace For the Domain Aftermarket Over the Past Two Weeks 

I was away last week for our son's wedding in Sarasota, so I have a double-length report for you this week that will bring you up to date on all domain sales reported to us over the past two weeks. We are also doubling our usual Top 20 charts to 40 positions each to make room for the double dose of data. 

It was a very solid fortnight led by Sedo's blockbuster $510,000 sale of Jerusalem.com. That deal ranks as the 9th biggest sale reported so far in 2010. Sedo had a second 6-figure blockbuster with #3 Angels.com, a domain that was purchased by the Los Angeles Angels major league baseball team for $200,000

Sandwiched in between Sedo's two big sales was #2 Disco.com at $255,000. That transaction closed after the name was auctioned off by SnapNames and Moniker in their live auction at the DOMAINfest New York conference last month. That sale generated three more chart entries, all on the top half the leader board, for SnapNames/Moniker, including #5 BigApple.com at $70,000.

By Ron Jackson

Nokta Domains gave the .coms a sweep of the first five positions by filling the #4 slot with OnlineCollegeClasses.com at $91,000.  

The country codes made their first appearance at #6 thanks to Gavin Durni's $56,000 acquisition of Property.co.za (South African ccTLD). He also purchased #13 Life.co.za for $14,536. Durni recouped part of his expenditures by selling one domain from his big .co.za portfolio - #9 AutoInsurance.co.za for $36,500. All told over $107,000 changed hands in his three transactions involving the up and coming country code extension. 

As they always do, Sedo also rang up a nice list of ccTLD sales, led by #10 Vergleichen.de at $36,322. That was one of five country code sales they placed on the all extension Top 40 Chart as they piled up 22 entries overall, more than any other venue (there were 42 positions on the elite list due to a three-way tie for the final spot). 

Moniker and BliXem Internet also got into the country code act. Moniker sold #16 SEO.cn (China's ccTLD) for $29,850 while BliXem moved a Netherlands ccTLD, #20 Verzeker.nl ("Insure" in Dutch), for $23,813. All told 10 country code domain earned places on the Big Board. Though not eligible for the domain only sales chart, it is worth noting that Moniker also had a huge ccTLD developed website sale - eWallpapers.eu at $145,000

The non .com gTLDs were limited to three spots with the best of those being Sedo's sale of #22 VacationPackages.org for $18,500.

The AfternicDLS had a strong outing with a hand in six charted sales, led by #17 Bookish.com at $28,000. Also earning chart honors were NameJet, MediaOptions and YummyNames.

Here is how all of the sales leaders stacked up for the two weeks ending Sunday, Sept. 5:

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, .asia, .pro & .tel)

A half dozen five-figure sales that you saw in the all extension section at the top of this report led the non .com gTLD category over the past two weeks. The highest GC sale you haven't seen yet is #7 DTK.org, a name that changed hands for $9,888 at Sedo. Two others where right behind at $9,000 each; SMS.info (via YummyNames) and EconomicDevelopment.org (thorugh the AfternicDLS).

Sedo swept the first seven sales and had a hand in 20 of the 40 charted sales overall. The AfternicDLS also flexed their muscles with 17 sales on the elite list. 

Along with the usual big contingent of .net and .org sales we saw a trio of .asia sales on the chart, led by #13 Wines.asia ($5,715) and #14 Currency.asia ($5,398).  

Here's how all of the Global Contenders stacked up for the two weeks ending Sept. 5:
