Latest news of the domain name industry

The Ties That Bind: Two Names Share Top Spot on This Week's Domain Sales Chart - Four Others Deadlocked in the Runner Up Spot

The action in the domain aftermarket was dominated by mid-range sales again this week with the biggest transactions topping out at $60,000. Two names hit that mark to stake equal claims to the #1 position on our latest all extension Top 20 Sales Chart. Sedo earned a place in the spotlight with HotelsGuide.com, a position shared with LuxResorts.com. In a private transaction, Matt Worth sold the latter domain to the operators of LuxIslandResorts.com after picking the domain up on the drop three years ago. 

This week's runner up spot was even more crowded with four domains shoe-horned into that position. FunLife.com, MyModa.com, Offset.com and Snipes.com sold for $50,000 each. The first two sold at GoDaddyAuctions, DomainMarket.com handled the Offset.com sale and Snipes.com was sold by Afternic

Ties continued to dominate the leader board with three names tied for the final spot on the top half of the elite list, another trio tied for #13 and four others knotted at #20. In a real oddity, only 16 of the 23 names on the Big Board share their positions with other names (the extra three spots resulted from that four-way tie for the final position).

By Ron Jackson

The week's biggest ccTLD sale, #8 CarInsurance.net.au, an Australian country code domain sold for $34,703 at NetFleet.com.au, was one of the few who were alone at their rung on the ladder. NetFleet also sold #19 FreeBets.com.au for $15,465. The ccTLDs had one more chart representative - #18 Verzuimmanagement.nl - a Dutch domain that sold for $15,851 at Sedo.  

the non .com gTLDs were not as fortunate as that category wound up being shut out. No reported sales from that group reached five figures.

That left the dominant .coms holding 20 of the 23 chart entries. GoDaddyAuctions had six of those, Sedo five and Afternic four. NetFleet and DomainNameSales.com (DNS) also had multiple chart entries with each scoring twice. DNS hit the top half of the leader board with #7 Pagagei.com at $38,000 and shared the #13 (tie) slot with DomainAdvisors.com after selling Tropicalia.com for them at $20,000

Chart honors also went to FindYourDomain.com for brokering #9 (tie) WrightFoods.com for $25,000 and to Flippa.com for their $16,000 sale of #17 Segment.com.   

Here is how the sales leaders stacked up for the week ending Sunday, Dec. 2:

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.
