Half Million Dollar Mark Breached Again - Two-Letter .Com Does the Trick This Time

For the 3rd consecutive report our all extension top sales chart is headed by a sale that hit or exceeded a half million dollars. I was away last week covering the DomainX conference in Bangalore, India, so this week's report actually covers two weeks worth of data but that is still an impressive run of high end sales. This time out SX.com did the trick, changing hands for $555,050 via NameJet in a sale that is also the 4th highest reported so far this year

The runner-up sale on our new Top 40 chart (expanded from the usual 20 positions to accommodate the double dose of data) went to another six-figure sale - again a short .com. That was DAR.com, a name that sold for $150,000 in a deal brokered by MavenDomains. 3-Letter .coms have been hot all year and that trend continued with eight more from that category landing on the leader board.

Sedo filled the next two spots on the ladder, banking $70,212 for #3 WolfSpeed.com and $55,000 for #4 KBeauty.com. Charts.com rounded out the first five, going for $50,000 in a deal handled jointly by Hobi Michalec at DomainHoldings and India's Deepak Daftari, who is regarded as the father of that country's domain investment community (Deepak also gave the first keynote address at the DomainX conference and I had the honor of following him on stage to deliver the second). Hobi put DomainHoldings on the board again by moving #16 (tie) Prescient.com for $20,000.

.Coms swept the first 11 chart entries before a trio of .top domains finally stopped that run. .Top is a new gTLD that has gained some degree of popularity in China. The registry operator sold #12 (tie) 55.top, 58.top and 77.top for $25,023 each in sales handled by the Jiangsu Bangning registrar (the registry provided us with documentation proving the prices paid).  

One other non .com gTLD made the Big Board. That was #32 Fan.club, sold for $10,016 by registrar 1API who was one of several registrars that helped market a sale of registry owned premium .CLUB domains in July.

The ccTLDs put three domains on the elite list, led by Sedo's $21,201 sale of #15 Rabatt.ch. Park.io put another country code on the top half of the chart with #20 DB.io going for $18,000. Sedo scored a second time in this category with #21 WS.de delivering $16,928.

The .coms wound up sweeping 33 of the 40 chart entries. Flippa.com posted a couple of those including one of the 3-letter .com sales - #22 VYC.com at $16,600. Rob Grant's WebMediaProperties added another in #23 CheapCoats.com at $15,000.    

Here is how the sales leaders stacked up for the two weeks ending Sunday, August 9, 2015:

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.
