Three-Word Portuguese Term Produces Week's Biggest Domain Sale While a Canadian .CA Domain Fills the #2 Slot

This week's all extension Top 20 Domain Sales Chart has a distinctly international flavor with a pair of non English terms in .com and a half dozen ccTLDs filling slots on the leader board. The biggest sale of all was VagaDeEmprego.com, a three word Portuguese term ("vaga de emprego") that translates to "job vacancy" in English. Sedo rang up $78,600 for that domain, one of nine they placed on the elite list to lead all venues. 

The highest of those half-dozen country code sales, Racing.ca, zoomed into the runner-up slot with a $39,200 sale that DomainNames.ca made in conjunction with Afternic. That Canadian ccTLD sale ranks as the second biggest country code transaction reported so far this year. Afternic had four chart entries overall, including a second top ten finisher - #10 ChillerSystems.com at $18,000

By Ron Jackson

NoktaDomains also put four names on the Big Board with two of those ranking among the week's six biggest sales. #3 Maske.com made $32,000 and #6 OutdoorCurtains.com closed on $24,900

The first five was rounded out by #4 ThrillOfTheGrill.com (a name that Michael Mann sold to Home Depot through Sedo for $30,000) and #5 Dola.com, a domain that doled out $28,500 to seller Brian Wick of CheapYellowPages.com.

DomainNameSales (DNS) had their usual solid outing again with a hand in four charted sales. DomainAdvisors used their platform to move #7 Blowouts.com for $20,000 and #20 (tie) CustomCufflinks.com at $10,000. DomainHoldings also had two nice sales on the DNS system - #16 (tie) HotelDestination.com at $13,000 and #20 (tie) AudioCore.com at $10,000

Chart honors also went to Mircea Goia who moved #12 BitHub.com for $17,000 in a private transaction. That helped the .coms pile up 17 of the 23 chart entries (the extra spots resulted from a four-way tie for the final position). 

The ccTLDs followed with six charted sales, including two more in the top ten, both through Sedo, #8 Jogo.tv at $19,650 and #9 Partners.co.uk at $18,120 (Sedo sold Partners.com for $125,000 last week).  

With the .coms and ccTLDs running the table, there was nothing left for the non .com gTLDs who were shut out. In an unusually weak week for that group, none reached (or even came close to) five figures. 

Here is how the sales leaders stacked up for the week ending Sunday, February 24:

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.

Country Codes

It was a good week for the ccTLDS led by the six five-figure sales from this category that you saw on the all extension leader board above. The top country code sale, Racing.ca at $39,200, is the second biggest ccTLD sale reported so far this year, trailing only Pay.co (sold for $46,807 earlier this month at Sedo). 

The biggest sale in this category that you haven't seen yet is #7 MBS.fr, a French domain that Sedo sold for $9,401. They went on to sweep 16 of the 20 chart entries with a roster than included #8 Letting.co.uk at $8,985 and another French domain, #9 CreateurDeBeaute.fr, at $7,533. 

Great Britain's .co.uk easily won the extension race with seven chart entries. No one else had more than two. Three extensions each claimed a pair of chart positions -  Canada's .ca, France's .fr and Germany's .de

Here is how the country code leaders stacked up for the week ending Sunday, February 24:
