3-Digit .Com Commands Over 200K to Top This Week's Sales Chart - 11 of First 12 Entries are 3 Characters or Less

It's the same old song but it's a tune that owners of ultra-short domain names never get tired of hearing. That category continued to rule our all extension Top 20 Sales Chart this week with 11 of the first 12 entries (and 14 of 20 overall) running 3 characters or less left of the dot. Eight of those were ever popular 3-letter .coms but the biggest of all banked on numbers with 701.com commanding $205,001 at NameJet in another in a long line of great numeric domain sales this year (four of the six biggest sales reported so far this year have been 3-digit .coms).  

The runner up spot on this week's leader board went to the only domain in the top ten that was more than three characters long. That was Rankings.com, a name that Pedro Romero sold through the Above.com Marketplace for $100,000.

The week's biggest non .com sales (both representing new gTLD .top) tied for the #3 slot with 6.top and M.top changing hands for $93,600 each through the Jiangsu Bangning registrar in China. The extension is doing well in that country and now has more than 900,000 total registrations, second only to .xyz among new gTLDs. 

By Ron Jackson

ZCN.com rounded out the first five with a $78,077 sale at NameJet followed by three more 3-letter .com sales at the same venue. Joining them on the top half of the elite list was #9 C.Club, sold for $50,000 in an Eachnic.com auction, and #10 RE.net at $49,000 via NameJet. That gave the non .com gTLDs four spots overall but the .coms swept everything else, piling up 16 chart entries and leaving the ccTLDs empty handed. 

SnapNames contributed to the .com onslaught with one of the few entries that stretched beyond 3-characters in #13 Changyu.com. Sedo had two others with #17 AirFashion.com ($29,000) and #18 Xpose.com ($27,500) and IndusDomains.com chipped in with FLIO.com at $25,000 (though at just four letters that one wasn't "long" by anyone's standard).  

Here is how the sales leaders stacked up for the week ending Sunday, Dec. 6, 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.

The All-Time Top 20 All-Cash Domain Sales Reported By DNJournal.com
 (2003 to Now)

There were 16 more five-figure sales off the chart led by Sol Orwell's $24,000 purchase of SJO.com at Heritage Auctions. Sol, a successful domain investor turned top notch developer who was profiled in our current Cover Story, promptly turned SJO.com into his personal website. 

NameJet has seven more sales at this level including GXV.com at $23,000. That was a great flip for the seller who had picked it up last February for just $8,450 (also at NameJet) - an example of how quickly three-letter .com prices have escalated this year. NameJet added $19,500 for 9472.com, $18,400 for BBOO.com and $15,100 for 259999.com. Also on their list was JohnDoe.com ($14,600), Baza.com ($14,100) and Jami.com ($10,300).

DomainHoldings.com collected $22,000 for StayFit.com, Flippa fetched $21,500 for Bart.com and Sedo sold six more, four of those .coms -  PerfectCo.com for $11,500, Fisico.com for $10,500 plus Avexis.com and Imagic.com at $10,000 apiece. They also moved two ccTLDs at this level - Cam.tv at $13,000 and Cool.it at $11,000.

.Com Supporting Cast

Sedo led the .Com Supporting Cast of four-figure sales with SocialChain.com ($9.985) and Barbut.com ($9,900). ZZCapital.com kicked in $8,000, Bilmo.com booked $7,900 and Asate.com secured $7,800. IlRiccio.com rang up $6,050, 33Y.com corralled $5,700 and 4488.com clicked for $5,500. DanTech.com drew another $5,499, FoodBrothers.com harvested $5,390 and Stroom.com delivered $5,000
