.Top Domain Takes Top Spot on This Week's Sales Chart - Single Digit Domain Draws $79,000

New gTLD .top continues to be popular with Chinese buyers. They love numeric domains, especially those with the number 8, so 8.top could be considered one of the best names in the entire TLD. That's why it was able to attract CNY 500,000 ($79,000) in a sale handled by the Jiangsu Bangning registrar.

As has been the case all year ultra-short domains remain the hottest names on the market. None of the eight biggest sales on this week's all extension Top 20 Sales Chart is more than 4 characters long (not counting the extension of course). A pair of 3-letter .coms took the 2nd and 3rd spots with Sedo selling OKA.com for $60,000 and Flippa.com moving CLN.com for $45,000.

Rounding out the first five are #4 9727.com, sold by DomainsNext.com for $35,000, and #5 EGIB.com, sold at Sedo for $34,875. The short domains that followed are Treu.de ($33,900), ESW.com ($25,000) and JUP.com ($23,500) with Sedo booking all three of those sales.

It looks like we will soon be charting a blockbuster 3-digit domain sale. Michael Berkens reported Tuesday (Oct. 20) that Rick Schwartz has sold 989.com for $818,181.81 but as of this writing the public WhoIs record is not showing a change in ownership. When it does, Rick would have three of the five biggest sales reported so far in 2015 (In February he sold Porno.com for $8,888,888 and just last month he moved another 3-digit .com - 899.com - for $801,000).

The .coms piled up 13 of the 20 chart entries. The ccTLDs also had a good outing with six names on the Big Board led by that Treu.de sale at Sedo. They also sold #11 Thermobox.de ($16,950),  #13 Box.tv ($15,498) and #18 (tie) Insurance.com.sg ($9,990) while #13 Easy.tv changed hands for $13,500 in a private transaction and #16 ER.uk went for $10,850 at DomainLore.co.uk. The non .com gTLDs were limited to one sale - but that was the biggest one of the week in 8.top.

Here is how the sales leaders stacked up for the week ending Sunday, Oct. 18, 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.
