Two ccTLD Sales That Rank Among the Year's Ten Biggest in That Category Stand Out on This Week's Chart 

It was a good week for the ccTLDs as three country code domains landed on the upper half of this week's all extension Top 20 Sales Chart. Two of those also rank among the ten biggest ccTLD sales reported so far this year. Online-Casino.de (a German country code domain) was the week's biggest sale in any extension, changing hands for $144,900 at Sedo. That is also the second biggest ccTLD sale reported this year, trailing only Saturn.pl, a domain that sold in February for $189,930.

The country codes landed another big blow with Gruppenreisen.de
("group travel" in German) at $74,970, also through Sedo. That ranks #3 on this week's Big Board and is the 8th biggest ccTLD sale year to date. The third country code domain on the top half of the leader board is #10 Message.me at $25,200 via Sedo.

Sandwiched between the country code heavyweights at the top is #2 ConferenceCalling.com, a name that went for $80,000 at the AfternicDLS. They also rang up $65,000 for #4 VertigoEntertainment.com and went on to pile up eight chart entries overall. 

By Ron Jackson

Only Sedo took more chart positions, sweeping ten places with a roster than included #5 Gamble.net at $45,125. That is also one of the ten biggest non .com gTLD sales reported so far this year. One other domain from that category, also a .net, earned a spot on the elite list. #17 Regis.net went for $14,000, also through Sedo. 

Two other venues won chart honors this week - Optimo.com for their $30,000 sale of #9 FashionDays.com along with GoDaddyAuctions and DomainNameSales.com who teamed up to move #12 Madigan.com for $22,000

Here is how all of the sales leaders stacked up for the week ending Sunday, June 10:

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.

All of those were noted in the all extension section above. The biggest sales in this category that you haven't seen yet are three domains tied for #5 on this week's Country Code Top 20 Sales Chart. Those are Belleza.es, Heimscheisser.de and Home24.ru at $6,300 each. 

Sedo had a big week sweeping 19 of the 20 chart entries. The only one that eluded their grasp was #14 PPIRefunds.co.uk, a name that was sold in a private transaction for $4,190

Germany's  .de led the TLD race with seven chart entries followed by Great Britain's .co.uk with four.  The only other extension with multiple chart entries was France's .fr with two. The remaining seven positions were divided between seven different extensions.
