Sedo Beams Up a Six-Figure Sale to Lead This Week's Domain Sales Chart

Sedo banked $136,000 for Beem.com this week to take the pole position on our latest all extension Top 20 Sales Chart. That was just the start of a red hot run that saw them claim 10 of the first 11 places on the elite list and 14 of 20 positions overall. With a price tag of $90,000, a very timely domain -  BlackFridaySales.com - took the runner-up slot and found a good home with Frank Schilling's Name Administration Inc.

.Coms took 13 places on the leader board while country codes continued to show their strength with five chart entries. Sedo had the highest of those with #4 AG.de at €30,000 ($40,200) and #9 Beauty.co at €13,500 ($18,090). Two non .com gTLDs made the Big Board - both .nets. #10 (tie) FreeGamesOnline.net sold for $18,000 and #19 FamilyTree.net went for $11,000 with Sedo logging both sales.

The AfternicDLS and Latonas.com also scored multiple chart entries. The AfternicDLS hit the daily double with #5 (tie) MyRecovery.com at $40,000 and #12 GoData.com at $17,600GoDaddy Auctions also earned chart honors with #18 (tie) Soba.com at $12,000

(Editor's Note. Two .CO domains that were originally listed on this chart, Coches.co and Chief.co, were removed after we learned that payment and transfer of the domains had not been completed as we had believed).

Here is how all of the sales leaders stacked up for the week ending Sunday, Nov. 21:

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 continued to click with five five-figure sales this week (all of which were noted in the all extension section at the top of this report). Three of the first six names on our new Country Code Top 20 Chart are .CO domains.

Sedo piled up 16 of the 20 chart entries. Germany's .de claimed five places, including #8 Dreyer.de at $8,040. Great Britain's .co.uk was next with three.

(Editor's Note: Three .CO domains that were originally listed on this chart, Coches.co, Coche.co and Chief.co, were removed after we learned that payment and transfer of the domains had not been completed as we had believed).
