Laying Down the Law - Afternic Locks Up the Top Spot on This Week's Domain Sales Chart With LawHelp.com

There were no six-figure sales reported this week but Afternic came within hailing distance of that lofty level with an $85,000 sale of LawHelp.com that gave them the lead role on this week's all extension Top 20 Domain Sales Chart

Afternic also had a hand in two more sales that made the elite list. They turned #15 RacingStuff.com over for $18,000, then joined forces with GoDaddyAuctions to sell #17 (tie) Freebies.org for $15,000

GoDaddyAuctions wound up piling up ten chart entries to lead all venues. Their roster was led by the week's biggest ccTLD sale, #3 XE.co at $37,500. They put two more on the top half of the leader board with FPCU.com and WorldBet.com going for $25,000 each to tie for #7. 

Sedo also had their usual powerful outing with #2  WeddingInsurance.com at $50,000 leading their nine charted sales. Five of those crashed the top ten, including three country code domains; #4 (tie) Wholesale.co.uk ($30,000), #6 Bankenvergleich.de ($25,968) and #10 Stamps.co.uk ($24,120).

By Ron Jackson

DomainNameSales (DNS) also got into the act, helping DomainAdvisors sell #4 (tie) CompareHealth.com for $30,000 and DomainHoldings to move #20 (tie) UFID.com for $14,500.

The .coms piled up 14 of the 21 chart entries (the extra spot resulting from a tie for the final position). The ccTLDs claimed four places on the Big Board (with all of those landing in the top ten) and the non .com gTLDs earned three spots. The latter group was led by #7 (tie) QF.net, a name that sold for $25,000 at Sedo.

Here is how the sales leaders stacked up for the week ending Sunday, March 3:

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 very good week for the ccTLDS as four of the year's ten biggest country code sales were booked this week alone. You saw that quartet of solid six five-figure sales on the all extension leader board above. They, of course, also fill the first four slots on our new Country Code Top 20 Sales Chart, with XE.co leading the way with that $37,500 sale at GoDaaddyAuctions.

The biggest sale in this category that you haven't seen yet is #5 CDNAir.ca, a Canadian domain sold by DomainNames.ca for $8,475. That was the only other charted sale not claimed by Sedo who swept 18 of the 20 chart entries, including #6 PracticeStudio.co.uk at $8,305.

Great Britain's .co.uk won the extension race with six chart entries, nosing Germany's de which had five. No one else had more than two. The only other extension with multiple chart entries was .tv, a TLD that hit the daily double with #15 OM.tv ($4,700) and #18 Testosterone.tv at $4,000
