Do the Math: Domain Market Comeback Continues With $725,000 Sale of MathGames.com

For the 7th consecutive week the domain aftermarket has produced at least one six-figure (or higher) reported sale. MathGames.com did the honors this week when Bill Karamouzis revealed in our current Cover Story that he paid $725,000 in a private transaction to get the name. Bill bought MathGames.com to serve as the first key piece of an innovative new online educational gaming company he is building at Teach Me, Inc. The MathGames.com sale is the 2nd highest transaction reported so far this year, trailing only the $2.1 million paid last month for 114.com.

The year's 2nd biggest ccTLD sale was also reported this week. Wayne Haroutunian's Irex Corp sold Canadian country code domain Flight.ca through GoDaddyAuctions for $99,000 (the buyer also had to pay the Canadian government an $11,720 HST tax). The only reported ccTLD sale reported this year that is bigger than this one was Fotograf.de, sold for $117,810 at Sedo in May. 

There was yet another big country code sale this week. Ed.co became the year's 4th biggest ccTLD sale after changing hands for $50,000 at GoDaddyAuctions. That gave the country codes two of the top three spots on this week's all extension Top 20 Sale Chart (and four places overall, including another top ten entry - #8 SameDayLoans.org.uk at $19,350. Monkey.co.uk sold that domain in a private transaction).

By Ron Jackson

The non .com gTLDs were limited to one chart entry - #10 KT.org, a domain that sold for $17,000 at Sedo. The .coms swept the remaining 15 entries including two that rounded out the first five - #4 WaterTreatment.com ($30,000 at Sedo) and #5 HJX.com ($29,000 at GoDaddy Auctions).  

Sedo had a hand in eight charted sales (included one shared with MostWantedDomains.com - #11 (tie) BigRents.com at $15,000) to win the race among venues, nipping GoDaddayAuctions, who had seven. NoktaDomains was the only other venue with multiple chart entries as they took three places on the Big Board led by #11 (tie) DesignerSofas.com at $15,000

Now, here is how all of the sales leaders stacked up for the week ending Sunday, August 4:

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

What a difference a week makes. After having no five-figure sales reported last week, the ccTLDs came roaring back this week when two of the year four biggest sales in this category were reported, led by Flight.ca at $99,000. The four five-figure ccTLD sales you saw in the all extension section above fill the first four slots on our latest weekly Country Code Top 20 Sales Chart.

That leaves #5 Fab.us as the biggest country code sale you haven't seen yet. Afternic sold that domain for $8,995. Sedo followed with #6 Novomatic.fr at $6,650, helping them claim 12 of the 20 chart entries, and Bruce Marler's $6,500 sale of Locally.co in a private transaction gave him  the #7 slot.

Great Britain's .uk led the extension race with five chart entries (four .co.uks and one .org.uk), nipping Germany's .de with four. The only other TLDs with multiple chart entries were Colombia's .co with three and Italy's .it with two.

Here is how the country code leaders stacked up for the week ending Sunday, August 4:
