Solid Week for Domain Sales With Enough Notable Sales to Fill TWO Top 20 Charts  

It was another solid week for the domain aftermarket led by a six-figure sale and enough in the five-figure range to fill two Top 20 sales charts. Sedo's $112,000 sale of Ahha.com set the pace with a nice one-word Spanish language .com - Resultados.com - taking the #2 spot on our latest weekly all extension Top 20 leader board. Alan Hack's SpanishLanguageDomains.com sold the latter name for $80,000 on the DomainNameSales.com platform.

The week's biggest ccTLD sale, W.to at $53,000 via Sedo, claimed the #3 position. .To is the country code for Tonga. Rounding out the top five were FitnessGuru.com ($45,000 at the the AfternicDLS) and Zimbabwe.com ($42,500 at Sedo). 

After taking three of the top five chart entries, Sedo went on to pile up seven places overall. Frank Schilling's DomainNameSales.com was right behind, having a hand in six charted sales including #6 WinterBoots.com at $36,000. DomainAdvisors.com also used their platform to sell #7 BlackHearts.com for $33,000

By Ron Jackson

Sedo's roster included the only two non .com gTLDs on the Big Board; #8 Apps.net at $30,607 and #13 (tie) Bangkok.net at $25,000. The ccTLDs were also limited to two spots with the aforementioned W.to joined by #18 Farmacia.tv, a name that MostWantedDomains.com, assisted by Jeff Overman, sold for $20,000

.Coms swept 16 of the 20 chart entries with the AfternicDLS ringing up four of those, including a second top ten entry with #9 (tie) Mara.com at $28,000. Chart honors also went to Brett Robbins, a specialist in domains with number 4 prefixes, who sold #12 4Finance.com for $26,000 and to UpMarketDNs.com who moved a three-digit numeric domain, #19 061.com, for $18,000

 Here's how all of the sales leaders stacked up for the week ending Sunday, May 13:

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 ccTLDs turned in yet another strong week led by seven solid five-figure sales, including W.to at $53,000 via Sedo, a sale that rank's among the 10 biggest country code transactions reported year to date. We noted all of the five-figure sales in the all extension section above, so the biggest sale you haven't yet seen in this category is #8 on our latest weekly Country Code Top 20 Sales Chart - GiftCardExchange.ca at $6,700 through the AfternicDLS. 

Sedo swept 21 of the 23 chart entries (the extra spots resulted from a four-way tie for the final opening) including the two  that rounded out the top ten; CosmeticDentist.org.uk and ShopIt.co.uk, a pair of names that tied for #9 at $6,360 each.

Germany's .de won the extension race with six chart entries. Great Britain's .uk and Italy's .it were next with three each. .TV (Tuvalu) and .es (Spain) each had two with six other countries each claiming one spot.

Here is how the ccTLD leaders stacked up for the week ending Sunday, May 13:
