$550,000 Deal Tops This Week's Domain Sales Chart - $700,000 Sale from 2016 Also Uncovered

Yet another big 2017 domain sale was logged this week when word came that Lola.com was sold in a bankruptcy proceeding for $550,000 in one of the year's six biggest domain sales to date. DomainGang found the details of the sale in a report published by Sourcing Journal. After filing for bankruptcy fashion company BCBG Max Azria was given court authority to sell Lola.com (with no other assets involved) and it now points to a company offering a new business travel app. BCBG had previously used the name for a women's fashion retail store that wound up failing.

An even bigger sale that occurred in 2016 has now been uncovered by George Kirikos who learned from a Logitech SEC filing that the company purchased UE.com for $700,000 last year. Elliot Silver at DomainInvesting.com had reported in April 2016 that Logitech had bought the name but the price wasn't known at that time. Kirikos, who has uncovered countless major sales by examining government filings, has now answered that question. As a result we have added UE.com to the 2016 Top 100 Sales Chart in our Sales Archive where it ranks as the 9th biggest sale made last year.  

Back to the present, every one of the top five sales on our latest weekly all extension Top 20 Sales Chart is a short .com - with none exceeding four characters. NameJet filled the #2 slot with CPT.com at $69,000. A pair of four-digit numeric domains followed. Sharjil Saleem worked with Sanwal Memon to broker the $45,000 sale of #3 1003.com as well as #4 1227.com at $35,000. NameJet rounded out the first five with DTU.com at $27,800.

.Coms went on to sweep 16 of the 20 chart entries, including nine of the top ten. The lone exception on the upper half of the leader board was #8 ET.org at $22,000 via NameJet. That was also the only non .com gTLD on this week's leader board. The ccTLDs fared better with three charted sales led by #13 Experte.de at €16,660 ($18,826) through Sedo

NameJet, who reported all of their May sales this week, had a hand in 10 of the 20 charted sales. Two of those were made by broker Erwan Kina on the NameJet platform - #6 Screensaver.com at $25,099 and #12 Napkin.com at $18,995.    

Here is how all of the sales leaders stacked up for the week ending Sunday, June 4, 2017:

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.
