The .Coms are Back in the Driver's Seat But ccTLDs Make Another Strong Showing on This Week's Domain Sales Chart

After a very unusual week last week when the normally dominant .coms had only four entries on our all extension Top 20 Sales Chart, they re-asserted themselves this week, taking six of the top seven spots and a dozen places overall. In a further sign that order was restored in the aftermarket, short .coms accounted for the three biggest sales. Versed.com set the pace with a $35,000 sale at GritBrokerage.com. A pair of 3-letter .com sales at Flippa.com followed with EIC.com commanding $30,000 and ERL.com drawing $25,581.  

The non .coms made their first appearance at #4 where new gTLD Innovation.group settled in after a $22,500 sale handled by Domain.trade. That was the only entry for the non .com gTLDs but the ccTLDs fared much better. After sweeping a remarkable 13 places last week the country code domains had another strong week with seven charted sales. Sedo rang up the highest of those with #8 eGroup.ch at $10,400. Sedo put four more ccTLDs on the Big Board with Flippa posting the other two.

Sedo claimed the most chart entries overall with 11 including four in the top ten. Flippa was next with six. In addition to the venues already mentioned, SnapNames earned chart honors with #11 Daixin.com at $9,262. 

Before we get to the leader board - a programming note for you. The offices of some of our data will be closed next week as they give their employees a holiday break from Christmas through the New Year. As a result there will be no sales column next week (Wednesday, Dec. 28). I will also be on an extended holiday break and will not be back in the office until Monday, January 9, so there will also be no report on Wednesday, January 4. However, I will bring you completely up to date on all sales reported between now and the time I return with a pair of columns starting with a double length report on Wednesday, Jan. 11 covering the final two weeks of 2016 sales. I will follow that with another column, currently planned for Friday, Jan. 13, that will cover the first week of 2017 sales. That will bring everyone up to date before we return to our normal Wednesday release schedule on January 18. 

While I am talking about the holidays let me take this opportunity to wish you, your family and loved ones the most joyous holiday season and your best year ever in 2017!

Now, here is how all of the sales leaders stacked up for the week ending Sunday, December 18, 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.
