A Quintet of 6-Figure Sales Highlight Domain Aftermarket Action Over the Past Two Weeks 

We have some catching up to do this week. As regular readers know, I was away for a 10-day stretch covering the DNCruise and T.R.A.F.F.I.C. Miami conferences. After I got back Thursday (Oct. 21) I wound up spending a good bit of time fielding mainstream media calls from reporters who had questions about the impending bankruptcy sale of Sex.com for $13 million (a judge will decide this week whether of not to approve that sale). Comments from at least two of the interviews have published in stories at ABC News and AOL's DailyFinance.com respectively. The Economist also had a story in the works when they contacted me Friday.

The ringing phones finally let up a bit over the weekend allowing me to complete this double length sales report that will bring you up to date on all sales reported to us since my last column published Oct. 6 (I will get back on our usual weekly Wednesday publication schedule this week, so this column, published Sunday, Oct. 24, will be followed by another one Wednesday, Oct. 27). 

By Ron Jackson

The past fortnight has been a good one for the aftermarket with five six-figure sales reported. Zero.com led the pack after changing hands for $379,420 through Moniker/SnapNames. The runner-up spot went to Wicker.com, a domain that Tal Moore picked up for $230,000 through WebsiteProperties.com (this domain has had a website on it but Moore told me he bought it for the domain name only as the existing site produced no significant revenue and would have to be redeveloped). DiscountVouchers.com completed the first three with a $157,000 deal hammered out in the AcornDomains.co.uk forum.  

As this is a double length report, covering two weeks worth of data instead of the usual one, we are expanding all of our Sales Charts from 20 to 40 positions. .Coms swept the first eight spots on the all extension Big Board, but the ccTLDs also fared well, piling up 13 chart entries. 

The country code contingent was led by #12 Schlemmerinfo.de (German ccTLD) at $22,750 and #13 Rep.ly (Libyan ccTLD) at $22,050. Sedo.com handled both of those sales and wound up sweeping 22 of the 43 chart positions, more than any other venue (the extra spots resulted from a five-way tie for the final opening). The AfternicDLS also had a very productive couple of weeks that gave them seven places on the leader board. Their roster was led #20 LargeMouth.com at $15,000).

While country codes continued to flourish, the non .com gTLDs had only one representative on the elite list, #9 OnlineKredit.org ($36,400 at Sedo).

Here is how all of the sales leaders stacked up for the two weeks ending Sunday, Oct. 17:

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

As I noted in the all extension section of this report above, the country codes continued to produce solid sales with 13 of those cracking the five-figure mark. Those were all listed on the all extension leader board. The highest ccTLD sale you haven't seen yet ranks #14 on our expanded Country Code Top 40 Chart. That is Terme.tv, a domain that tuned in $8,400 at Sedo. Sedo, who always dominates the ccTLD category, swept 32 of the 40 chart entries.

Four places were taken by domains sold in the .CO Landrush Auctions and three spots went to names sold by NetFleet.com.au, including #22 Pregnant.com.au (Australian ccTLD) at $5,445.

Here is how the ccTLD Top 40 stacked up for the two weeks ending Oct. 17:

Global Contenders (Non .com gTLDs: .biz, .info, .mobi, .net, .org, .asia, .pro & .tel)

The non .com gTLDs produced just a pair of five-figure sales over the past two weeks (both of which you saw on the all extension leader board earlier). The biggest sale in this category that you haven't yet seen is #3 on our expanded Global Contenders Top 40 Chart. That is RentACar.org - sold for $9,000 at Sedo. Another .org, #4 Moksha.org, was right behind at $8,500, also at Sedo.

The .orgs took five of the first seven positions while a .pro, Insurance.pro, slipped into the #8 (tie) slot at $6,500 via Moniker/SnapNames. Though the .nets lagged in the early going, they came on strong in the lower price ranges and wound up taking more chart entries than any other extension - 22 of 40 overall. #8 (tie) Tinnitus.net helped the extension rally with a $6,500 sale at Sedo.

Here's how all of the Global Contenders stacked up for the two weeks ending Oct. 17:
