Latest news of the domain name industry

Six-Figure Drought Continues But Four and Five Figure Domain Sales are Flourishing

Six-figure sales remained on summer vacation for the third week in a row but once again buyers were out in force scooping up hundreds of domains priced between $1,000 and $50,000. The week's highest reported sale was exactly $50,000, the sum DomainHoldings.com banked for Addictions.com

DomainsHoldings also made chart history this week, becoming the first venue to take 23 places on the all extension Top 20 Sales Chart! How is that even possible? The anomaly occurred because DomainHoldings sold 22 different 3-numeral .com domains for $14,800 apiece - a total of $325,600. Those 22 domains tied for #17 on the Big Board, inflating the chart from its usual 20 positions to 38 places. 

Five different venues are represented on the top five rungs of the leader board. The #2 spot goes to the Toby Clements Newsletter where Stratford.com changed hands for $47,000. DomainNamesSales.com secured #3 with Ayya.com at $30,000,   Moniker/SnapNames teamed up with the AfternicDLS to sell #4 Hipsters.com for $28,500 and NameJet rounded out the first five with SportsPicks.com at $25,660.

By Ron Jackson

The .coms turned in an extraordinarily powerful performance this week with only a lone ccTLD sale preventing them from running the entire table. That was #8 WaterTanks.co.uk, sold for $21,000 at NoktaDomains.com. The non .com gTLDs not only had no presence on the chart, no reported sales from that category reached even five figures this week (the highest was OFL.net at $6,427 through Moniker/SnapNames). 

A half dozen different venues has multiple chart entries this week. In addition to DomainHoldings with their numeric domain name bonanza, the AfternicDLS had a hand in four charted sales and NameJet planted their flag on three. Sedo, whose roster was led by #6 Tackboard.com at $25,000, placed two names on the elite list, as did NoktaDomains and Moniker/SnapNames.

Here is how the sales leaders stacked up for the week ending Sunday, July 8:

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 were led by a trio of five-figure sales this week, including WaterTanks.co.uk at $21,000 via NoktaDomains - a high enough price to also place among the top ten on the all extension leader board you saw earlier. The owners of Billets.ca bought the singular version, Billet.ca from Emall.ca for $14,700 (U.S.) and the AfternicDLS sold SepticTank.co.uk for $12,000 to round out the first three on our latest weekly Country Code Top 20 Sales Chart.

Sedo had the most chart entries, sweeping 15 of the 20 positions with a roster led by #4 Legal.me at $8,100. They also got $7,930 each for DCM.de and Dottori.it, two domains that tied for #5. 

Other venues earning chart honors this week were NetFleet.com.au with #10 Change.com.au at $5,824 and NameJet with #17 (tie) Bern.tv at $3,800

Great Britain's .co.uk led the TLD race with five chart entries, followed by Germany's .de with three. Four other extensions, .ca, .me, .it and .eu had two each. The remaining four positions were divided among four different countries. 

Here is how the ccTLD leaders stacked up for the week ending Sunday, July 8:

Non .com gTLDs (.biz, .info, .mobi, .net, .org, .asia, .pro & .tel)

It was a slow week for the non .com gTLDs with no five-figure sales reported. That left  the door open for OFL.net to take the top spot on our new Non .Com gTLD Top 20 Sales Chart with a $6,427 sale at Moniker/SnapNames. Only three others breeched the $5,000 mark - #2 Pali.biz ($5,330 at Sedo), #3 TDB.org ($5,200 at the AfternicDLS) and #4 OfficeSpaceForRent.org ($5,000, also at the AfternicDLS). 

The AfternicDLS piled up 13 of the 21 chart entries (the extra spot resulted from a three-way tie for the final position). Their roster included Concussions.net, a name that round out the top five at $4,888

The .nets rang up 12 charted sales to win the TLD race. The .orgs followed with eight, leaving one slot that was claimed by that .biz sale at #2.

Here's how all of the Non .Com gTLD leaders stacked up for the week ending Sunday, July 8:
