Two More Big Sales Including One That Ranks Among the Year's Top Ten Lead This Week's Chart

As I write this (Wednesday, March 19), spring is just a day away. That means warmer weather is coming but things are already hot in the domain aftermarket where a long streak of big sales continued this week with two more that cracked the six-figure mark. One of those, Accommodation.com, ranks among the year's 10 biggest sales after being sold by James Wester's Virtual Property Experts for a whopping $286,000 in a deal completed through EscrowHill.com.

Go Daddy/Afternic rang up the second six-figure transaction, collecting an even $100,000 for QY.com. Sedo rounded out the first five with #3 Jamrock.com ($68,750), #4 1905.com ($57,000) and #5 Trace.com ($50,000)

Sedo, who reported two weeks worth of data after missing last week, went on to pile up 21 of the 26 entries on our latest weekly all extension Top 20 Sales Chart (the extra spots resulted from a seven-way tie for the final position). Sedo's haul included the week's biggest ccTLD sale, #7 Homify.fr at €20,000 ($27,800). That was one of six country code domains to earn places on the elite list. 

By Ron Jackson

The non .com gTLDs claimed two spots on the Big Board with HFF.org and Mobile.asia changing hands for $10,000 each at Sedo to join that seven-name logjam in the #20 position. 

Sedo and Go Daddy/Afternic were the only venues to gather multiple chart entries. Go Daddy/Afternic scored four times with a roster that included the lone ccTLD entry that eluded Sedo, #13 Shout.co at $19,000.

Here is how all of the sales leaders stacked up for the week ending Sunday, March 16:

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 country codes had a solid week led by the half-dozen five figures sale you saw on the the all extension chart at the top of this report. This biggest sale in this category that you haven't seen yet is #7 on our latest weekly Country Code Top Sales Chart. That is CGL.fr, a French ccTLD that sold for $8,201 at Sedo. 

Right behind in a tie for 8th place are Biz.me and Leo.co at $8,000 apiece with FairLoans.co.uk rounding out the top ten at $6,640. Sedo handled all three of those sales and went on to sweep 21 of the 23 chart entries (the extra spots resulted from a four-way tie for the final opening). 

Germany's .de won the extension race with five chart entries, nipping the four racked up by France's .fr. Three other TLDs, Great Britain's .co.uk, Colombia's .co and the Netherlands .nl has two apiece.

Here is how the country code sales stacked up for the week ending Sunday, March 16:
