One of the Year's Three Biggest Sales and 2013's 2nd Biggest ccTLD Sale Top This Week's Domain Sales Chart

The past week was a strong one for the domain aftermarket. One of the year's three biggest sales - a $300,000 .com - set the pace and we also saw 2013's  2nd biggest ccTLD sale. There were so many five-figure sales we could have filled two all extension Top 20 Sales Charts and still had a domain left over. 

The headliner was Sedo's $300,000 sale of Yinhang.com - a transaction that ties February's $300,000 sale of Mojo.com for the #2 slot on our Year to Date Top 100.  Only one sale has been bigger - Booker.com at $375,000 in January. 

Another of this week's highlights was the sale of Polish country code domain Grydladzieci.pl ("games for children" in Polish) for $48,870 in a private transaction. That is the year's second biggest ccTLD sale, trailing only Schokolade.de, a domain that sold in early April for $80,640. It also ranks #2 on this week's all extension Top 20 Sales Chart.  

By Ron Jackson

Three more ccTLDs made the elite list, with two of those joining Grydladzieci.pl on the top half of the leader board. Sedo sold #5 (tie) Dating.co for $30,000 and #9 Executor.co.uk for $18,720

The non .coms gTLDS were limited to one representative on the Big Board - #20 Type2Diabetes.net, a name that Sedo sold on the GoDaddyAuctions platform for $14,499

.Coms swept 15 of the 20 chart entries including #4 Seeq.com, sold by Afternic on the GoDaddy Auctions platform for $33,000, and #5 (tie) Biguan.com, sold for $30,000 by Moniker/SnapNames

It is becoming more and more common to see two different venues working together to complete a sale. 10 of this week's charted sale resulted from such teamwork.

Sedo wound up having a hand in 7 charted sales, followed by Moniker/SnapNames with 5. GoddadyAuctions was involved in 4 and DomainNameSales in 3 (including two shared with DomainHoldings). Afternic scored twice and FindYourDomain.com also won chart honors with #7 EB5Visa.com at $28,000.

Here is how all of the sales leaders stacked up for the week ending Sunday, April 28:

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 half-dozen five-figure sales you saw in the all extension section above. The 800-pound gorilla was that $48,870 sale of Grydladzieci.pl in the second biggest country code sale reported so far in 2013.

The highest sale in this category that you haven't seen yet is #7 on our new Country Code Top 20 Sales Chart. That is Amp.co, a domain that sold through Sedo for $9,750. They also rang up $8,580 for #8 FaceTravel.de and $7,400 for #9 NewYork.in. NetFleet.com.au rounding out the top ten with BuyProperty.com.au at $6,169.  

Sedo ran the board on the second half of the chart to take 17 of 20 entries overall. Colombia's .co won the extension race with four chart entries. Germany's .de and Great Britain's co.uk were next with three each. The only other TLD with multiple chart entries was the European Union's .eu with two.

Every Wednesday we publish the highest reported domain name sales for the previous week. On Mondays and Tuesdays our contributors send us their sales data for the previous 7 days. We then compile that information and write this article to give you the most comprehensive sales report in the industry. 

Editor's Note: If you wish to review previous Domain Sales columns, they are available in our Archive.
