.Coms Take 18 of 20 Positions on This Week's Sales Chart with 3-Letter .Coms Still Rocking

No six-figure sales were reported this week but there were still a lot of solid sales to report, especially from the .com camp. The world's most popular TLD swept 18 of the 20 entries on our latest all extension Top 20 Sales Chart. Rizk.com led the .com charge after changing hands for $49,000 in a private transaction. The runner-up spot went to Kelepir.com, a domain that AlanAdlari.com sold for $40,000

As regular readers know, 3-letter.coms have been on a tear this year and that continued this week with six more landing on the leader board, led by Sedo's $34,000 sale of #3 HSE.com. #4 SUVs.com followed at $30,000 via Flippa.com with another 3-letter .com, WXR.com at $29,000, rounding out the first five in a verified private sale.

Flippa put two other 3-letter .coms on the elite list that were resold after each had been picked up for thousands of dollars less just a few weeks ago. #10 NVL.com at $12,600 had been acquired through Sedo last month for just $7,531 and #12 XFU.com at $12,300 had been purchased at NameJet in February for $8,600. That's a pretty nice return on investment for such a short period of time!

By Ron Jackson

A pair of ccTLD sales prevented the .coms from running the board. Sedo sold #17 DCL.co.uk for £7,010 ( $10,375) - a reminder that 3-letter domains are popular in non .com extensions too. Flippa moved the other country code domain on the Big Board, #18 (tie) Analytics.io, at $10,000

The non .com gTLDs, who are usually at the back of the pack trailed again this week with no reported sales from that category reaching five figures (the group's highest sale was Customer.org at $5,600 through Flippa). 

Here is how all of the sales leaders stacked up for the week ending Sunday, April 12:

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.
