One of the Year's Three Biggest ccTLD Sales Tops Another Strong Week for the Domain Aftermarket

.Coms dominated this week's all extension Top 20 Domain Sales Chart, sweeping 18 of the 20 positions, but all of those trailed the German ccTLD that sits on top of the elite list. That is OnlineCasinos.de, a domain that changed hands for €65,000 ($85,150) at Sedo.com. That is the year's third highest country code sale, trailing only Saturn.pl ($189,930) and Flights.ca ($120,000).

The only other non .com domain on the leader board was also a ccTLD (and also sold by Sedo). That is #10 (tie) Hotel. me at $25,000. The non .com gTLDs were shut out this time around. 

The .coms began their run with #2 Torc.com at $68,000 via Frank Schilling's DomainNameSales.com. They had a hand in seven charted sales, three from their own listings and four more that were DomainAdvisors.com names that were sold using the DomainNameSales platform. The later group was led by #3 Quantify.com at $50,000 and #4 (tie) JunkRemoval.com at $45,000.

By Ron Jackson

Sedo rounded out the first five with #4 (tie) Kredittkort.com at $45,000 and went on to pile up a half dozen chart entries including four that reached the top half of the chart. 

Two other venues, GoDaddyAuctions and NoktaDomains also claimed multiple chart entries. Nokta hit the daily double with #6 Club Dresses.com at $38,750 and #17 Diyaliz.com ("dialysis" in Turkish) at $16,400.  GodaddyAuctions filled four slots with a quartet led by #9 FromRagsToRiches.com at $26,000

The AfternicDLS also earned chart honors with #20 CityCompass.com at $13,654 and supplemented that one with two more five-figure sales just off the chart and close to 100 in the four-figure range -  more than any other venue at that level which is favored by small to medium sized businesses. 

Here's how the sales leaders stacked up for the week ending Sunday, March 4:

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

In another standout performance, the ccTLDs  piled up seven five-figure sales this week, led by OnlineCasinos.de at $85,150 via Sedo. We showed you all seven in the all extension section above so the highest country code sale you haven't see yet is #8 on our latest weekly Country Code Top 20 Sales Chart. That is Gift.me, a domain that changed hands at Sedo for $9,000.

.ME (Montenegro's country code) wound up with nine of the 20 chart entries, led by #2 Hotel.me at $25,000 and four others in the first ten including #9 Blackjack.me ($7,400) and #10 CreditCard.me ($7,200). Sedo rang up all of those .me sales and went on to sweep 16 of the 20 chart entries. 

Three other TLDs had multiple chart entries. Germany's .de and Great Britain's .co.uk had three each and Colombia's .co two. The other countries represented on this week's leader board were South Africa (.co.za), the European Union's nations (.eu) and Belgium (.be) with one spot each.
