Sedo and DomainNameSales Trade Punches in Sweeping 9 of the Top 10 Spots on This Week's Sales Chart

In a battle reminiscent of a heavyweight championship fight, popular domain aftermarket sales platforms Sedo and DomainNameSales traded punches in a duel that ended with 9 of this week's 10 biggest domain sales being split between those two combatants. Sedo scored first - and scored big with #1 Partners.com, brokered by Dave Evanson, putting $125,000 on their side of the ledger. 

In a nice follow-up Sedo also took the #2 spot on our all extension Top 20 Sales Chart with Banque.com at $91,210. DomainNamesSales answered by sweeping the rest of the first five with ProjectLife.com ($75,000), CityMD.com ($45,000) and S88.com ($35,000). But that wasn't the end of it. Sedo came right back to claim the next two spots, then DomainNameSales landed another blow of their own with a fourth top ten entry.

Sedo finally pulled away down the stretch, taking seven places on the second half of the leader board to wind up with 12 of 20 entries overall. DomainNamesSales booked five places and Afternic rang up three, including a top ten entry of their own, #8 (tie) ClearWireless.com at $20,000. Afternic is a dominating player in the market's four-figure sweet spot but they also make their presence known at the high end each week.

By Ron Jackson

The .coms had their usual powerful outing, ringing up 13 of the 20 chart entries. The non .com gTLDs followed with four with that category being led by #7 Assurance.org at $22,110 via Sedo. That group also had a nice two-letter .org sale with #12 OE.org generating $16,750, also through Sedo - a venue that rang up all three charted ccTLD sales as well. The country code contingent was led by # 10 VideoShop.tv at $18,760.

Here is how the sales leaders stacked up for the week ending Sunday, February 17:

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.
