Twin 100K Sales at Sedo Spearhead Another Strong Week for Domains

The domain aftermarket's November rally continued this week, led by a pair $100,000 sales at Sedo and 31 others that reached five figures at various venues across the industry. Sedo's six-figure pacesetters were LAHotels.com and Paste.com (the latter domain being brokered by Sedo veterans Dave Evanson and Jay Finnan).

Sedo went on to sweep six of the top seven sales in a run that was interrupted only by Flippa.com's $60,000 sale of #3 Salinas.com. Sedo answered with the week's biggest country code sale, #4 Find.se (Swedish ccTLD) at $50,800. They also booked the week's top non .com gTLD sale with #6 CY.org at $30,000.  

En route to piling up 12 of the 20 chart entries overall, Sedo also shared the #8 slot with PrescriptionSunglasses.com at $20,000. Two other venues matched that price; Moniker/SnapNames with ScotlandTours.com and DomainNameSales.com with Werbeagentur.com.

By Ron Jackson

Moniker/SnapNames and DomainNamesSales (DNS) wound up taking three spots each on the Big Board. DNS added #12 (tie) ClosedLoop.com at $18,000 and #17 (tie) Nyka.com at $14,000 while Moniker/SnapNames continued their roll with #17 (tie) LC.ca (Canadian ccTLD) at $14,000 and #19 WashProfile.org at $13,600.

NetFleet.com.au also earned chart honors with their $16,069 sale of #14 CarAuctions.com.au (Australian ccTLD). That was one of four country code domains on  the elite list. The non .com gTLDs had three representatives, leaving the .coms to once again dominate with 13 charted sales.

Here is how the leaders stacked up for the week ending Sunday, Nov. 11:

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

Seven five-figure sales, including one of the year's 20 biggest ccTLD sales - Find.se at $50,800 via Sedo - set the pace for the country codes this week. We showed you all of those five-figure ccTLD sales in the all extension section above, so the highest country code sale you haven't seen yet is #8 on this week's Country Code Top 20 Sales Chart. That is Valutakurser.se, a Swedish ccTLD that went for $8,255 at Sedo. 

Sedo rounded out the top ten with #9 Intelligent.co.uk at $7,950 and #10 Bijouteria.de at $7,112 and they went on to claim 11 of the 20 chart entries. Moniker/SnapNames also had a very strong week, charting six sales including Canadian twins Horoscope.ca and Horoscopes.ca at $7,000 each.

Canada's .ca won the extension race with five chart entries followed by Germany's .de with three. Also taking multiple chart positions with two each were Sweden's .se, Great Britain's .co.uk, Tuvalu's .tv and Montenegro's .me
