Latest news of the domain name industry

A $90,000 .Com and Eight ccTLDs Share the Spotlight on This Week's Domain Sales Chart 

If variety is the spice of life the past week was a very spicy one for the domain aftermarket as seven different TLDs earned places on our new all extension Top 20 Sales Chart. As is usually the case, the top spot went to a .com with this week's leader being Constant.com, a name that changed hands through the AfternicDLS for $90,000.

The .coms went on to take 10 of the top 20 chart entries, but non .com domains took just as many with most of the credit for that going  to the ccTLDs that rang up 8 of the 20 biggest sales. The country card charge was led by a fab pair of domains at Sedo - literally fab domains -  #2 Fab.de at $50,000 and #3 Fab.eu at $46,900.

Five of those nine ccTLD sales were produced by Germany's popular .de extension. The other three were divided between the European Union (.eu), Sweden (.se) and Canada (.ca). 

Sedo accounted for all but two of the country code sales. The exceptions were MissDomain.com's $27,808 sale of #6 Maskerad.se ("masquerade" in Swedish) and the $8,725 sale of #19 SportsbookReview.ca at Moniker/SnapNames

By Ron Jackson

Sedo wound up sweeping 15 of the 20 chart entries overall with a roster than included #4 Games24.com at $35,510 and #5 Imigration.com at $35,000. They also had the only two non .com gTLD sales on the Big Board, #8 CEM.org at $18,000 and #17 HA.net at $9,000

The AfternicDLS was the only other venue with multiple chart entries. They hit the daily double,  pairing the week's biggest sale (Constant.com) with #14 FloridaCancer.com at $10,500

Chart honors also went to one private sale in which Maz Ghani of Pizzerias.com sold #18 RRZ.com for $9,000. Here's how all of the sales leaders stacked up for the week ending Sunday, November 20:

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

It was another solid week for the country codes led by two of the year's 20 biggest sales in this category - Fab. de ($50,000) and Fab. eu ($46,900), both through Sedo. You saw the top seven sales on this week's Country Code Top 20 Chart in the all extension section above, so the biggest ccTLD sale you haven't seen yet is #8 Wimp.de at $8,710 via Sedo. 

Sedo went on to sweep 16 of the 20 chart entries. The few exceptions included a pair of South American game-related domains that changed hands in private transactions. César Gabriel Gallego bought (#9 tie) JuegosGratis.com.ar (an Argentine domain that means "free games" in Spanish) for $7,000 and Gustavo Volcan sold #13 JogosDoMario.com.br (a Brazilian domain than means "Mario Games" in Portuguese) for $5,500. 

Germany's .de extension had the most chart entries (by far) piling up 8 charted domains. The only other extensions with multiple chart entries were Montenegro's .me with three and  Sweden's .se with two.

Here is how the ccTLD leaders stacked up for the week ending November 20:
