Six-Figure Sale of Intranet.com Helps Sedo Sweep 9 of the Week's 10 Biggest Sales

Sedo topped this week's all extension Top 20 Sales Chart after their  Senior Broker Dave Evanson closed a $160,000 deal for Intranet.com. Sedo also nailed down the #2 slot with one of the year's five biggest ccTLD sales, Sale.co.uk at $60,000 (an interesting purchase by Christoph Grueneberg and Thomas Mueller that we detailed in a report in our Lowdown section Monday).

Those two sales alone would make it a good week for anyone, but Sedo was just getting warmed up. They went on to sweep the first nine slots on the Big Board with a line up that included six .coms, a second .co.uk - #5 SmartFleet.co.uk at $17,280 - and the week's biggest non .com gTLD sale - #6 (tie) Media.info at $15,200

Michael Berkens's MostWantedDomains finally stopped the Sedo streak with #10 CatchMeUp.com at $11,300. MWD then completed the Daily Double with #12 (Tie) BuyMyBook.com at $10,000

By Ron Jackson

Afternic went one better, hitting the trifecta with a trio led by #12 (tie) BaliMap.com at $10,000. They also gave the ccTLDs, and .co.uk in particular, a third entry on the elite list with #16 (tie) ExhibitionStands.co.uk at $8,000

DomainNameSales.com got into the act with the second (and last) non .com gTLD on the leader board, #20 WaterHouse.net at $7,500. The .coms still exercised their usual domination though, piling up 15 of the 20 chart entries overall with Sedo's $27,000 sale of #3 Hornet.com adding to the .com swarm.  

Here is how all of the sales leaders stacked up for the week ending Sunday, Sept. 15:

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.

The ccTLDs celebrated the year's 4th largest sale to date in this category - Sale.co.uk at $60,000 via Sedo. The runner-up slot also went to a .co.uk domain - SmartFleet.co.uk at $17,280 - with Sedo handling both of those sales. Afternic made it three in a row for the .co.uks with their $8,000 sale of ExhibitionStands.co.uk.
