Long Isn't Always Wrong: Three-Word .Com Tops This Week's Domain Sales Chart

High end domain buyers like short names so it is rare to see any name longer than two words at the top of our weekly sales chart. In fact there hasn't been one of those this year - until now. EveryDayCounts.com broke the long-name drought, changing hands for $40,000 through Go Daddy/Afternic to claim this #1 position on this week's  all extension Top 20 Sales Chart. Of course, $40,000 is also a low number for a chart topper, so the absence of big spenders this week was a big factor in the EveryDayCounts.com win.

.Coms swept nine of the top ten entries and 18 of 23 places overall (the extra spots resulted from a seven-way tie for the final position). Sedo claimed the runner-up slot with Zilli.com at $21,510, followed by another Go Daddy/Afternic sale - #3 FilmesOnline.com at $28,000.

By Ron Jackson

Go Daddy/Afternic also had the week's biggest ccTLD sale with #4 Light.co at $25,000 and they played a role in the largest non .com  gTLD sale reported as well, helping Domains90210.com sell #16 UF.net for $10,012 (that was also the week's only charted sale from that category). 

Go Daddy/Afternic and Sedo each wound up with 11 chart entries. Sedo's haul included the other three ccTLDs on the Big Board, a trio that was led by #11 MySale.de at $13,563

The only other venue to earn chart honors was Fat City Properties who sold #17 (tie) CliqueIt.com for $10,000. Here is how all of the sales leaders stacked up for the week ending Sunday, May 11:

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.
