Latest news of the domain name industry

Editor's Note: The offices of some of our major sales data suppliers will be closed untuil after New Year's Day and they will be unable to send in sales reports this week as a result. So, there will be no new sales column this week. Instead we will bring you fully up to date with a double length column covering two weeks worth of sales that will be out at the end of next week. Offices will be re-opening Jan. 2-3 so we will collect sales data those days, then publish our next column on Friday evening, January 4. That will cover the final two weeks of the 2012 sales season.

DomainNameSales Goes on a Tear With a Hand in  EVERY ONE of This  Week's 11 Biggest Domain Sales

It should be a very Merry Christmas at DomainNameSales.com (DNS). The domain aftermarket sales platform founded by industry legend Frank Schilling simply shot the lights out this past week either solely or jointly ringing up ALL of the 11 biggest sales and 16 of 20 on our latest weekly all extension Top 20 Sales Chart

Two of those sales hit six figures including #1 Line.com at $118,000 and #2 Glamorous.com, sold by DomainAdvisors.com on the DNS platform for $115,000. DomainNameSales posted 10 chart entries on their own, including #3 Fobo.com ($57,500), #4 LifePrograms.com ($55,000) and #5 Zebu.com ($40,000)

DNS also helped DomainAdvisors pile up six charted sales, including #8 BuyGoldBullion.com at $25,400 and #9 (tie) RGP.net, the week's biggest non .com gTLD sale, at $25,000

By Ron Jackson

Only Afternic and Sedo were able to keep DNS and DomainAdvisors from monopolizing the charts as each of those venues put two names on the leader board. Afternic scored with #12 (tie) PokerNight.com at $20,000 and #18 BestTime.com at $15,000. Sedo's winning pair was #12 (tie) ULink.com at $20,000 and the week's top ccTLD sale, #19 Matik.ch at $14,630

The country codes and the non .com gTLDs each had two representatives on the elite list. The second ccTLD was #20 Catalyst.ca, sold at DomainNameSales for $14,000. The second non .com gTLD was #17 Grab.net, sold by DomainAdvisors on the DNS platform for $17,000. The .coms swept the remaining 16 positions.

Here is how the sales leaders stacked up for the week ending Sunday, Dec. 16:

Keep in mind that these are the highest value cash only 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.

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

A trio of five-figure sales, including one that ranks among the year's 20 biggest in this category, led the non .com gTLDs this week. That was RGP.net, a name that DomainAdvisors sold on the DomainNameSales platform for $25,000. You saw all of those five-figure sales in the all extension section above, so the highest sale from this group that you haven't seen yet is #4 on our new weekly Non .Com gTLD Top 20 Chart - that is Traspaso.net at $5,320 via Sedo.  

Afternic rounded out the first five with ePhone.net at $4,889 and they went on to sweep the next seven positions as well (all with .nets). Overall, Afternic piled up 15 of the 21 chart entries (the extra spot resulted from a tie for the final position.
