Domain Aftermarket Catches Fire Over the Past Fortnight With Four Six-Figure Sales and 63 Reaching Five Figures 

I was away last week covering the DOMAINfest Global conference in Santa Monica, California so this week I will be bringing you up to date on reported domain sales for the past two weeks. As I always do in this case, I am expanding our usual Top 20 Charts to 40 positions each to make room for the double dose of data. The good news is that this past fortnight was an exceptionally strong one with a quartet of six-figure sales backed by a huge supporting cast of 63 names that hit the five-figure mark - enough at that level to fill three standard charts and still have some left over. 

Garry Chernoff's $225,000 sale of BowlingBalls.com to a major bowling gear retailer set the pace with a Polish country code domain, Saturn.pl, playing the wingman role after changing hands for $189,930 in a private transaction. Saturn.pl was sold by the Polish state mining company to a multi-national electronics retailer of the same name.

Also breeching the six-figure barrier were #3 ULE.com, sold to a Hong Kong company in a private transaction for $145,000, and #4 Airline.com, a domain that DomainHoldings.com moved for $125,000

By Ron Jackson

Speaking of wingmen, GoDaddyAuctions rounded out the top five with the highest five-figure sale, Wingman.com at $75,000. GoDaddyAuctions wound up with 19 charted domains, more than any other venue. Their haul included the highest non .com gTLD sale, #7 DIY.org at $60,000. The non .com gTLDs wound up taking eight of the 42 chart entries (the extra spots resulted from a five-way tie for the final position). Two of those joined DIY.org on the top half of the elite list. #12 Go.pro sold for $40,000 at GoDaddyAuctions while #14 (tie) Click.org went for $30,000 in a private transaction. Another .org, #38 CookingGames.org at $15,000, may look familiar. The .com version sold for a whopping $350,000 back in 2010. 

The ccTLDs wound up filling six spots on the Big Board with four of those landing on the top half of the ladder. The .CO Registry sold #9 (tie) Dolphin.co for $48,000, Sedo moved #13 Naturkraft.de for $31,654 and NetFleet.com.au drew $22,002 for #20 CreditCards.net.au - the highest publicly reported .net.au sale on record. 

The .coms still dominated though, piling up 28 of the 42 chart entries. Here's how the sales leaders stacked up for the two weeks ending Sunday, Feb. 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.

Those high end sales filled the first 14 slots on our expanded Country Code Top 20 Sales Chart.
