Pair of 6-Figure Sales (One a New gTLD) and a Half-Dozen 3-Letter .Coms Highlight This Week's Sales Chart

Just about everyone can find something to be happy about in this week's domain sales report. As always, the .coms had a lot to celebrate including the week's biggest sale, as well as a half-dozen more charted sales in the red hot 3-letter .com category and a sweep of 17 of 20 positions on our latest all extension Top 20 Chart

New gTLD proponents will be happy to see another six-figure sale (the third from this group in less than 30 days) and ccTLD fans can take pride in two country code domains crashing the top ten.

Ringtones.com set the pace with a $105,000 sale at  NameJet.com. That big new gTLD sale was close behind with Minds+Machines banking $100,000 for Net.work. The buyer was BearingPoint, a well-known business consulting firm. 

NameJet filled the #3 slot with Baotou.com at $61,801 then started the 3-letter .com run with #4 YBF.com at $55,301. They went on to pile up 13 chart entries overall. Sedo added fuel to the .com fire with a quartet of charted sales led by #8 Vigia.com at $25,000

By Ron Jackson

The ccTLDs took their first turn in the spotlight with Nidoma.com's $42,944 sale of #5 Cialde.it (the Italian word for "coffee pads"). Nidoma notched the second country code sale as well, again with an Italian domain - #9 Capsule.it at $21,472.

While the Net.work sale gave the non .com gTLDs a chart entry, there was no room at the inn for the traditional powers in that category - .net and .org. One came close though with NameJet's $10,001 sale of PJ.org falling just outside the Top 20. 

Now on to a look at how all of the sales leaders stacked up for the week ending Sunday, July 5:

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.
