Short .Coms Continue Chart Dominance - 11 of Week's 12 Biggest Sales Were 3 Letters or Less

Less continues to be more in the domain aftermarket - the fewer letters in a name the higher the price tag goes. That was more evident that ever over the past two weeks with a 2-letter .com topping our chart at nearly $700,000 and nine 3-letter .coms among the 12 biggest sales. The lone non .com in the first dozen was also ultra-short - that being a two-letter .net (I was away covering THE Domain Conference in Fort Lauderdale last week so this week's report will fill you in on the past two week's worth of sales). 

GJ.com led the charge of the short brigade with a blockbuster $694,095 sale at NameJet that also ranks as the 6th biggest sale reported so far this year. A pair of 3-letter .coms filled the next two spots on our latest weekly all extension Top 20 Sales Chart. #2 QJS.com was sold for $150,000 by Michael Berkens's MostWantedDomains.com and KuwaitNEt.net moved #3 CXL.com for $65,000

The next spot went to the only name in the first 12 longer than 3 letters. That was #4 PassItOn.com, a name that Sedo sold for $64,000. MostWantedDomains filled out the first five with another 3-letter .com - WQB.com at $56,000.

By Ron Jackson

Six of the next seven spots also went to 3-letter .coms - the only exception being #9 YA.net, a name that IndusDomains sold for $35,000. That pack of 3-letter .coms included #7 KQT.com, a domain that Braden Pollock of LegalBrandMarketing sold for $40,000 after acquiring the name for just $11,000 in the NamesCon conference auction last January. 

The .coms wound up sweeping 19 of the 22 chart entries, the extra spots resulted from a three-way tie for the final opening. That closing trio included a name that George Kirikos found in an SEC filing - #20 (tie) CloudCommerce.com at $20,000

The only non .coms on the Big Board, other than YA.net, were a pair of ccTLD sales at Sedo. Both of those were German domains - #17 J.de (the shortest name on the elite list) at $24,640 and #19 Pionier.de at $21,840

Here is how the sales leaders stacked up for the two weeks ending Sunday, Oct. 4, 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.

Country Codes

The ccTLDs were led by those two big .de sales you saw on the all extension chart above. The next three domains on our latest  Country Code Top 20 Sales Chart also reached five figures with #3 Personal.eu pulling $16,744, #4 Bookings.ae adding $11,200 and #5 Odd.tv tallying $10,000. Sedo accounted for all of those sales and went on to sweep 19 of the 20 chart entries.

The only spot that eluded Sedo's grasp was #19 (tie) Hack.co, a name that NameJet sold for $3,500. Sedo barely missed a sixth five-figure sale as #6 Luft.ch came in at $9,985

Germany's .de easily won the extension race piling up ten chart entries. The only other TLDs with more than one were .tv and .co. Here is how the country code leaders stacked up for the two weeks ending Sunday, Oct. 4:
