Another Big Numeric Domain Sale from Rick Schwartz and a Pair of 3-Letter .Coms Set Pace on This Week's Chart

Some things never change - short domains attract buyers and Rick Schwartz makes big sales. As Michael Berkens reported this week, Rick did it again - banking $225,000 for 8181.com, the largest publicly reported 4-digit sale on record to date. That was one of four big recent sales from Rick, but the only one in the quartet that he was allowed to disclose the price of. Michael reported the others were 6N.com, 399.com and 6565.com, with the four totaling over $1.3 million, giving the Domain King nearly $12 million in sales so far this year. As has been the case with almost all of these high end numeric sales the 8181.com buyer was from China.

The next two spots on our latest weekly all extension Top 20 Sales Chart went to two domains from another highly popular category - 3-letter.coms. #2 FZD.com changed hands for $65,000 in a private transaction and Sedo moved #3 ICT.com for $40,280

Rounding out the first five were Concurrent.com at $35,000 (a sale uncovered in an SEC filling by the master of that art - George Kirikos) and Sedo's sale of Kuzu.com at $32,000. Kuzu.com helped the 4-characters or less team pile up 10 of the 20 chart entries.

On the opposing sideline the five or more characters contingent also took ten spots, helped by Flippa.com's $30,000 sale of #6 Mineral.com and the $24,888 sale of FindMyMoney.com by Michael Berkens's company, MostWantedDomains.com

.Coms swept the top seven positions and 13 places over all. The ccTLDs took three spots, led by Sedo's $21,200 sale of #8 Your.tv. Sedo also sold #16 SeaTours.de at $10,367 with Park.io's $10,999 sale of #12 Profit.io sandwiched in between. 

The non .com gTLDs claimed four places on the Big Board led by #9 Dash.org, purchased by crypto-currency company Dash, for $20,000. Scrip.net also landed on the top half of the leader board with a $14,709 sale at Sedo.  The other two representatives from this category were numeric .top domains, #11 789.top ($12,223 at Benmi.com) and #13 111.top ($10,795 at eName.com).

Here is how the sales leaders stacked up for the week ending Sunday, Nov. 15, 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 the trio of five-figure sales you saw on the all extension leader board above with Your.tv leading the way at $21,200. The biggest sale in this category that you haven't seen yet is #4 on this week's Country Code Top 20 Sales Chart. That is Vertraege.de, a German domain that Sedo sold for $7,950. They rounded out the first five with Thermodynamics.co.uk at $7,592.

Sedo went on to sweep 18 of the 21 chart entries (the extra spot resulted from a three-way tie for the final positions). The only other venue with multiple chart entries was Park.io with two - #2 Profit.io at $10,999 and #15 Decide.io at $4,000. DomainLore.co.uk also got on the board with #10 (tie) NU.uk at $4,723

Germanys .de easily won the extension race with six chart entries followed by Great Britain's .uk with three (two of the .co.uk variety). Here is how the country code leaders stacked up for the week ending Sunday, Nov. 15:
