Flurry of NDA Sales Leaves Door Open for Lower Level Deals to Take Top Spots on This Week's Chart

In terms of reported sales, this was the slowest week we've seen thus far in 2013 but, as the old saying goes, numbers can be deceiving. 

Ironically, in a week when there were no publicly reported sales above $30,000, several venues reported brisk business that included several  high end sales that were subject to NDAs (non disclosure agreements). For example, DomainHoldings.com told us Monday (March 25) was the biggest sales day in the company's history with 9 domains selling for a total of more than $700,000. 

They also closed a $200,000 deal for Shocks.com but that one was financed and will be paid off over a period of time (we only chart sales when the domain has been fully paid for and transferred to the new owner).

By Ron Jackson

The dearth of reportable high end sale left the door open for Sedo to claim the top spot on this week's all extension Top 20 Sales Chart with Mychoco.com at $29,440. They also nailed down the #2 slot with TEG.com at $28,000. Sedo went on to pile up 14 of the 23 chart entries (the extra spots resulted from a four-way tie for the final position).

Afternic also turned in their usual solid outing with six charted sales led by the week's biggest ccTLD sale, #3  ULive.tv at $27,000. They put two others on the top half of the leader board; #8 (tie) WoodDecking.com at $11,000 and #10 (tie) ViewHouse.com at $10,000

The biggest sale DomainHoldings was allowed to release was good for #4 on the elite list. That was MovieHub.com at $26,000. They also shared a the $7,700 sale of #18 ACSF.com with ModelDomains.com. Sedo rounded out the first five with the week's biggest non .com gTLD sale - #5 Imagenes.net at $15,360

All told, the non .com gTLDs had three representatives on the Big Board with #14 Doodle.net ($9,025 at Afternic) and #19 Campingplatz.org ($7,680 at Sedo) also representing that category. The ccTLDs were limited to two spots with #10 (tie) Ribose.com.br ($10,000 at Sedo) joining ULive.tv. The .coms swept everything else, giving them 18 of the 23 chart entries. 

Here is how all of the sales leaders stacked up for the week ending Sunday, March 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

The ccTLDS were led by the two five-figure sales you saw in the all extension section above - ULive.tv and Ribose.com.br. The highest sale in this category that you haven't seen yet is #3 on our new Country Code Top 20 Sales Chart. That is Stage.be, a domain that Sedo sold for $6,400 en route to sweeping the entire top ten and 16 of 21 entries overall (the extra spot resulted from a tie for the final position). 

Rounding out the first five are #4 Bruno.co at $6,040 and #5 Computerfritz.de at $6,016. DomainLore.co.uk finally snapped the Sedo run with #12 Farmland.co.uk at $3,777, one of three chart entries they claimed. NetFleet.com.au also helped prevent a Sedo monopoly of the leader board with two charted sales led by #13 HairExtensionsSydney.com.au at $3,483. 

Germany's .de easily won the TLD race with five chart entries, edging Great Britain's .uk with four (three of those being .co.uk and one .org.uk). The only other extension with multiple chart entries with Australia's .com.au with two. 

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