Six-Figure Sales Drought Ends With DomainNameSales Ringing Up One of the Year's 10 Biggest Transactions

After three consecutive weeks with no six-figure sales reported, DomainNameSales.com (DNS) ended the aftermarket's high end hiatus by banking $162,500 for BoatsForSale.com. That is the 9th largest sale reported so far this year. DNS went on to place seven domains on our new all extension Top 20 Sales Chart, including three of the top four entries. 

Sedo slipped into the #2 spot with LittleFox.com at $45,000. DNS answered with #3 DuctCleaning.com at $40,000 and #4 Fortnight.com at $39,500.  Afternic then rounded out the first five with TheCompany.com at $37,500

Afternic piled up six chart entries including a name they sold for MostWantedDomains.com - #6 WOI.com at $35,000. MostWantedDomains also rang up another top ten entry on their own - moving #7 (tie) TeaBox.com for $30,000.

By Ron Jackson

Sedo claimed five places on the elite list, including the top ccTLD sale - #7 (tie) Girl.me at $30,000. That was one of three country code domains that qualified for the Big Board, joining #12 Favo.de at $22,610 and #14 K.im at $20,000. Sedo booked those two sales as well.

The non .com gTLDs weren't as fortunate. With no five-figure sales reported in that category the group was left out in the cold. That allowed the .coms to pile up 17 of the 20 chart entries including one at HuntingMoon.com where #19 XChat.com changed hands for $17,500

The market's mid-range continued to boom. So many five-figure sales were reported this week we could have run two Top 20 charts filled with them and still had five more left over. Here is how all of the sales leaders stacked up for the week ending Sunday, June 9:

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 quintet of five-figure sales you saw in the all extension section above with Girl.me setting the pace at $30,000. That sale at Sedo helped them sweep the first seven spots on our new Country Code Top 20 Sales Chart. That run included the two biggest country code sales you haven't seen yet, Hardware.eu and Radio.pt at $9,975 each.

NetFleet.com.au rang up the biggest non Sedo sale with ACM.com.au at $8,041. Sedo then rounded out the top ten with #9 Zamestnanie.eu at $7,980 and #10 Freizeit-und-resien.de at $6,650.

There was a lot of diversity on this week's chart with a dozen different countries represented. Germany's .de won the extension race with five chart entries, followed by Great Britain's .co.uk with three. France's .fr and the European Union's .eu were the only other TLDs with multiple chart entries, taking two places each.

Here is how the country code leaders stacked up for the week ending Sunday, June 9:

After having nine 5-figure sales last week, the non .com gTLDs didn't have any at that level reported this week.

They also took the #2 spot with IPS.net at $8,200 en route to claiming five of first six chart entries. 

A third consecutive 3-letter domain, FII.org, slipped into the #3 position after changing hands for $7,888 at Afternic. They went on to sweep 13 of the 20 chart positions.
