Trio of 6-Figure Sales - Two of Them New gTLDs - Top This Week's Domain Sales Chart

Two of the past week's four biggest domain sales were 3-letter .coms. No surprise there because that popular category always attracts serious money. The other two however, including the week's biggest sale, came from the new gTLD category that, at this early stage, still has a limited aftermarket track record. Domain investors remain split on the prospects for new gTLDs but the proponents got a boost this week when the Rightside registry announced two big sales - this week's chart topper, Sex.live, at $160,000 and an adult domain sibling - #3 Porn.live at $120,000 (the buyer has already launched websites on each domain, both NSFW). 

Joining them at the top of our latest weekly all extension Top 20 Sales Chart are those 3-letter .coms - #2 UED.com, sold through Guta.com for $150,000, and #4 TIN.com at $77,000 via Sedo. Sedo rounded out the first five with JoeJohnson.com at $21,000. They went on to pile up 13 of the 20 chart entries.

13 was also a lucky number for the .coms who filled that many spots on the Big Board. Nidoma.com contributed to the .com charge with #8 (tie) Biciclette.com at $15,000, as did SnapNames with #10 121212.com at $12,010

The ccTLDs also had a good week with five entries on the elite list. Sedo accounted for three of those, including the largest one, #6 Mail.pe at $20,000. Quest Financial put a second one on the top half of the leader board, selling #8 (tie) MIO.tv for $15,000. Catawiki.com also helped the country code cause with #18 (tie) Incassobureaus.nl ("collection agencies" in Dutch) at $7,500

Here is how all of the sales leaders stacked up for the week ending Sunday, August 7, 2016:

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 five sales you saw on the all extension leader board above - two of which reached five figures - Mail. pe at $20,000 and MIO.tv at $15,000. The highest sale in this category that you haven't seen yet is #6 on our  latest weekly Country Code Top 20 Sales Chart. That is Sedo's $5,600 sale of ePartner.de.

The next two spots went to Park.io who put a pair of names into a tie for the #7 position with  Advance.io and Buddy.io selling for $5,000 apiece.  They went on to claim six chart entries overall, second only to the dozen Sedo piled up.

The British Indian Ocean Territory's .io won the extension race with five chart entries. Germany's .de was just a step behind with four. Here is how the country code leaders stacked up for the week ending Sunday, August 7, 2016:
