ccTLDs Take Top Spots on This Week's Domain Sales Chart and Pile Up Nearly Half of the 20 Entries Overall

Someone must have declared the past 7 days ccTLD Week. Country code domains took the top two spots on our latest all extension Top 20 Domain Sales Chart and went on to pile up 9 chart entries overall. German domain GayForum.de set the pace with a $45,500 sale at Sedo. The domain was purchased to serve as a redirect to an active forum at the .com version of the domain. 

The runner up slot went to SS.TV, a name that MostWantedDomains, acting as the broker for the Legacy Fund, found a buyer for at $30,000. Yet another ccTLD reached the top half of the elite list. Sedo sold #6 Partners.eu for $19,500 and they went on to sweep 12 of the 20 chart entries.

The .coms ran the rest of the board, leaving the non .com gTLDs on the outside looking in as no reported sales from that category reached five figures this week. #3 Lovoo.com led the .coms with a $24,700 sale through Sedo. #4 PublicSex.com followed at $20,000 via HuntingMoon.com. Afternic completed the first five with D88.com at $19,999, one of four sales they placed on the Big Board.  

By Ron Jackson

Chart honors also went to Bert Svensson who sold #7 EuropeRiverCruises.com for $18,020 in a private transaction and Ilze Kaulins at ExcellentDomains.ca who sold #18 ISI.ca for $10,119. We don't publish explicit adult domain sales, but if we did Canada's .ca would have had another chart entry this week as Sedo sold one matching that description for $30,000.

Here is how the sales leaders stacked up for the week ending Sunday, March 10:

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

The ccTLDS were smoking again this week with nine five-figure sales (all of which made the all extension top 20 sales chart you saw above). The country code charge was led by the year's second biggest sale to date in this category - GayForum.de at $45,500 via Sedo. 

The highest ccTLD sale you haven't seen yet is #10 on our new Country Code Top 20 Sales Chart. That is TIB.eu, a European Union domain that went for $9,003 at Sedo. Sedo wound up sweeping 19 of the 21 chart entries (the extra spot resulted from a three-way tie for the final position). 

Sedo kicked off the second half of the chart with #11 Hausfinanzierung.de at $8,190. That sale helped Germany's .de TLD easily win the extension race with six chart entries. Only three other TLDs had multiple chart entries (with each claiming two spots) - those were the European Union's .eu, Spain's .es and Great Britain's .co.uk

Here is how the country code leaders stacked up for the week ending Sunday, March 10:
