Latest news of the domain name industry

Webquest's Chad Wright Banks $90,000 for Tracy.com to Top This Week's Domain Sales Chart 

.Coms enjoyed a banner week sweeping all but one entry on our latest all extension Top 20 Sales Chart. Chad Wright of Webquest Inc. led the .com charge with his $90,000 sale of Tracy.com

The only non .com domain on the Big Board was a big one. Cruises.co claimed the #2 spot after changing hands for $82,500 in a private transaction. The owners of Cruises.co.uk bought the domain as a global brand to complement their British ccTLD. According to a splash page on Cruises.co, they will launch a new site there on October 1. 

Frank Schilling's  DomainNameSales swept the next three spots on the leader board with #3 VisaBulletin.com at $50,000 and a pair of names; Behaviour.com and ChinaFair.com, that tied for #4 at $30,000 each

DomainNameSales wound up having a hand in seven charted sales, more than any other venue. They shared one of those with GoDaddyAuctions who used the DNS platform to sell #10 (tie) SafetyGloves.com at $22,000

By Ron Jackson

Sedo and the  AfternicDLS also had solid outings. Sedo put five domains on the elite list led by #4 (tie) eCapital.com at $30,000. The AfternicDLS chalked up four chart entries with a roster led by #12 GarageDoorRepairs.com at $21,250

Two other venues also earned chart honors;  MostWantedDomains for their $15,000 sale of #15 (tie) 4Gee.com at $15,000 and WinnerNames.com for their $13,500 sale of #20 MobileFutures.com

Here is how the sales leaders stacked up for the week ending Sunday, Sept. 9:

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 had just one five-figure sale this week but it was one of the ten biggest country code sales reported so far this year. That $82,500 sale of Cruises.co ranks #7 on our Year to Date Top 100 Chart (the second chart on the page that link leads to)

The #2 domain on our latest weekly Country Code Top 20 Sales Chart is Message.co.uk, a domain that changed hands for $9,080 at Sedo. NameCase sold #3 Cheap.it for $7,740 and Sedo rounded out the first five with Goods.in and Portalinmobiliario.pe at $7,000 apiece. 

Sedo went on to pile up 14 of the 20 chart entries. NetFleet.com.au was one of the few venues able to break Sedo's stranglehold on the chart, placing three Australian domains on the leader board led by # 6 DogInsurance.com.au at $6,483.  

Here is how the ccTLD leaders stacked up for the week ending Sunday, Sept. 9:
