Four 6-Figure Sales Totaling Nearly $1 Million Top This Week's Domain Sales Chart

We're three weeks into November and all three have been very strong ones for the domain aftermarket. The past week was the month's best yet for the high end of the market with a quartet of six-figure sales totaling just under $1 million setting the pace. FindYourDomain.com brokered the top two - GiftBasket.com at $350,000 and Feng.com at $250,000. That GiftBasket.com sale to the owner of WineGiftBaskets.com ranks as the 6th biggest sale of the year to date

Cotton.com followed at #3 with a $205,890 sale at Moniker/SnapNames and #4 ECS.com completed the six-figure line up after changing hands for $150,000 in a private transaction. 

DomainNameSales.com claimed the next two spots on this week's all extension Top 20 Sales Chart with AirportRentals.com at $45,000 and the week's best country code sale, eFax.ca (Canadian ccTLD) at $30,000. Two more ccTLDS made the elite list, #7 JobCentre.co.uk at $27,500 and #15 Menopausa.it (Italian country code) at $14,080. Sedo handled both of those sales. 

By Ron Jackson

The non .com gTLDs also had three representatives on the Big Board, including a pair that crashed the top ten, #8 Good.net ($26,500 at Sedo) and #9 Brilliant.org ($25,000 at DomainMarket.com).   

The .coms swept 14 of the 20 chart entries including a name that completed the Top 10 -  Gamepedia.com at $19,200 via Sedo. Sedo wound up claiming eight places on the leader board to win the race among venues. DomainNameSales was next, having a hand in a half dozen charted sales, including one they shared with DomainAdvisors.com - #16 CookieCard.com at $13,000

Here is how the leaders stacked up for the week ending Sunday, Nov. 18:

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 the three five-figure sales you saw on the all extension Top 20 Chart above. The highest sale in this category that you haven't seen yet is #4 on this week's Country Code Top 20 Sales Chart. That is LondonRestaurants.co.uk at $8,904 via Sedo. 

Three sales tied for the 5th spot on the leader board with AdCash.de, GBTimes.co.uk and WebShops.ch going for $6,400 each. Sedo handled all three of those sales and went on to sweep 19 of the 20 chart entries. The only one that escaped their grasp was #1 eFax.ca at $30,000 through DomainNameSales.com.

Germany's .de won the extension race with seven chart entries followed by Great Britain's .co.uk with five. The possibility that Nominet may open up second level registrations (for example Cars.uk) has cast a bit of cloud over the .co.uk market, but obviously that extension is nowhere near being dead just yet. No other TLDs had more than one chart entry this week.

Here is how the country code leaders stacked up for the week ending Sunday, Nov. 18:

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

The two five-figure sales you saw on the all extension Top 20 Chart earlier led the charge for the non .com gTLDs this week.
